WEB DESK: Film star Johnny Depp and his actress wife Amber Heard are to divorce, US court documents have revealed.
Heard, 30, filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences. They married 15 months ago and have no children.
Depp and Heard, who met while filming 2011’s ‘The Rum Diary’, married in a private Los Angeles ceremony in February 2015.
Days after, they celebrated with a slightly larger ceremony on Depp’s private island in the Bahamas.
The split comes days after the death of Depp’s mother. His latest film, ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ is also due to be released on Friday.
In the court papers, Texan-born Heard listed the separation date as Sunday. Celebrity news website TMZ reported that Depp had asked a judge to reject Heard’s claim for spousal support.
On Monday evening, Depp appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live in seemingly good spirits. – Business Recorder
