Playing Johnny Depp Hopes His 'Short Marriage Will Be Resolved Quickly,' Rep Says

This statement may be short, but it certainly is telling.

Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp on Monday, three days after the Pirates of the Caribbean star's mother died. Now, Depp's rep has issued a terse statement about the split on the actor's behalf.

"Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life," Depp's spokesperson tells ET in a statement.

"Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly," he concludes.

Depp, 52, and Heard, 30, met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 but didn't step out as a couple until years later. The pair tied the knot in February of last year in two separate ceremonies. This week, both filed conflicting divorce petitions regarding spousal support -- she requested it, but he doesn't want to pay it -- and other divisions of assets.

And that's all before the matter of the couple's lack of prenup.

So, what went wrong? A source tells ET that the duo fought "all the time" and their marriage "has been on the rocks since it started." Depp apparently took issue with Heard hanging out with her ex-girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree, while Heard was "affected by the industry and scene at times."

"She is a cool girl, but Johnny is cooler and doesn't tolerate that," the source explained.
