Playing Amber Heard Seeks Domestic Violence Restraining Order Against Johnny Depp

UPDATE: On Friday afternoon, Amber Heard's request for a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp was granted. The actor cannot "harass, attack, strike, threaten, assault, hit, follow, stalk, molest, destroy personal property, disturb the peace, keep under surveillance, impersonate, or block movements," and must stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife. The next hearing has been set for June 17.

Less than a week after filing for divorce from Johnny Depp, Amber Heard has asked for a restraining order against the actor.

The actress showed up to a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday to file the restraining order with a bruise on her face. According to TMZ, Heard and her lawyer are claiming that the facial wound was inflicted upon her by Depp on Saturday night. The website also reports that Heard provided other photos showing various bruises.

The 52-year-old star has been out of town since Wednesday, promoting his upcoming movie.

ET has reached out to both Heard and Depp's reps for comment.

"They have been having problems for quite some time," a source told ET. "It started a few months after they got married and it just never got better. It was extremely volatile."

Another source reported that Heard and Depp fought "all the time."

"She is really young and affected by the industry and scene at times," another source added. "She is a cool girl, but Johnny is cooler and doesn't tolerate that."

The estranged couple met while filming 2011's The Rum Diary, but didn't come out about their relationship until 2012, after Depp split with his girlfriend of 14 years, model Vanessa Paradis.
