Playing Johnny Depp Doesn't Want to Pay Amber Heard Spousal Support in Divorce

Johnny Depp doesn't want to pay for his one-year marriage to Amber Heard.

Heard filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for spousal support from the 52-year-old actor. On Wednesday, Depp filed a response, asking the court to "terminate the court's ability to award support" to Heard, according to court docs obtained by ET.

Depp also wants the 30-year-old Magic Mike XXL actress to pay her own attorney fees -- when she filed, Heard asked that Depp pay her costs as well as his.

Other changes made in Depp's response include the couple's official date of separation -- he listed it as "To Be Determined," while Heard claimed it was May 22, the day before she filed for divorce. (And two days after the death of Depp's mother, Betty Sue Palmer.)

The Pirates of the Caribbean star also requested separation of certain assets, including "miscellaneous jewelry," earnings made after their separation and, as stipulated in the response, "There are additional separate property assets and obligations of the parties, the exact nature and extent of which are not presently known."

Even if he doesn't have to pay spousal support, the divorce could still cost Depp, as the couple married without a prenuptial agreement.

In California, where the couple is divorcing, a judge simply divides the couple's joint assets in half in the absence of a prenup. Forbes reports that Depp made $30 million in 2015 alone, the year that he and Heard were married.
