Amber Heard Johnny Depp domestic violence claims add yet more drama to the split as she is awarded a temporary restraining order against the actor
TMZ reports that a judge granted the TRO, ordering Depp to stay 100 yards away from Heard, until a hearing next month.
Shouldn't be too much of an issue, as Depp is currently on the other side of the world, promoting his new movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass.
So, pretty pointless all in all—as, he hardly poses a credible threat—but, after receiving a ton of negative press, it definitely helps paint Heard in a more sympathetic light.
But, that's all we are saying—as, we would never call bullshit on a woman claiming domestic violence.
Because, it is way too serious a subject, and way too much of a reality for millions of women, who live in fear of a violent partner day in and day out.
So, for that reason, we hope this isn't some PR move on Heard's behalf.
That said, we almost hope it is—because, we can't bear to think of Depp as some abusive asshole.
Ugh, let's fact it, either outcome is just terrible.
Reports are swirling that the actor's family loathed Heard—something she's vehemently denied.
And, the public has seemed to sympathize with Depp when it comes to the relationship break-up.
But now, Heard has gone public with claims of physical abuse—alleging the 52-year-old beat her on numerous occasions throughout their 15-month long marriage.
Sources close to the actor call bullshit on Heard's claims—telling TMZ she's "an affront to real victims of domestic violence."
Which, once again, is just UGH.
At court today Heard was sporting a bruise around her eye, which she claims Depp gave her Saturday night during a fight.
TMZ also has a photo which Heard alleges was taken shortly after the purported attack by Depp.

According to Heard, she was on the phone with a friend when Depp suddenly lost his shit and started smashing up their apartment.
Apparently, she screamed at her friend to “call the cops!" enraging Depp yet further and leading to him grabbing the phone from her hand and hitting her in the face with it.
Police records show that cops did come to the apartment—but Depp had left the apartment by then.
Cops told Heard that they would arrest Depp if she gave a statement about the alleged attack—but she declined to.
In court today, Heard also requested the right to stay in the couple's home—which the Judge granted.
However, he turned down her request that Depp be ordered to stay away from one of their dogs.
He also denied her request to keep the couple's Range Rover, to award her spousal support and legal fees, and to force Depp into anger management.
Yeah, once again…..just, UGH.
