Playing Amber Heard Files for Divorce From Johnny Depp After 1 Year of Marriage

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are calling it quits after one year of marriage.

The 30-year-old actress filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for spousal support, ET has confirmed. It's been a particularly rough week for Depp, as his mother died three days prior.

Depp, 52, and Heard met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 but didn't step out as a couple until years later. The pair married in February of last year in two separate ceremonies, one at Depp's West Hollywood, California, home and one on his private island in the Bahamas.

In November, the Magic Mike XXL actress shot down rumors that the couple's marriage was on the rocks, telling Marie Claire, "I try not to react to the horrible misrepresentation of our lives, but it is strange and hard."

Earlier this year, Depp also thanked Heard in his acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, saying, "I also have to thank my wife, Amber, for putting up with me. For living with all these characters, which can't be easy. It's hard for me, it's gotta be hard for her."

More recently, the couple has rarely been spotted together. Depp was at Heard's side in court during her dog smuggling case in Australia in April -- and appeared with her in the subsequent apology video -- but she attended the Met Gala without him earlier this month and he walked the red carpet solo at the Alice Through the Looking Glass premiere on Monday.

ET recently caught up with Heard at the junket for The Adderall Diaries, where she discussed why it's so important for her to keep personal matters private.

"For me, in my life, the most precious thing I can have is my privacy," she said. "I don't have any reason or desire to [share], but I understand why people do and why they would. A lot of people find ways to do it for good and control their representation of themselves, which I think actors or celebrities typically have not had control over for a long time."

In divorce documents obtained by ET, Heard says the couple separated on May 22, mere days after Depp's mother, Betty Sue Palmer, died on May 20 after a long illness. She was 81.

In 2004, Depp brought his mom to the Academy Awards, when he received his first nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The actor also got her name tattooed inside a heart on his left upper arm that in the '80s.

Despite the heartbreaking news, Depp appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, where he surprised Pink and kissed Kimmel on the lips. Watch his appearance in the video below.
