Playing Amber Heard Retracts Request for Temporary Spousal Support From Johnny Depp

Amber Heard's lawyer has filed a declaration withdrawing the actress' request for temporary spousal support from her estranged husband, Johnny Depp.

In court documents obtained by ET, Heard claims she initially asked for temporary spousal support because she thought it was standard operating procedure in a divorce case, but now feels the move is being misinterpreted.

It's being "used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence," Heard claims in the documents.

The documents also read, "In light of the coordinated false and negative media campaign falsely depicting my attempts to attain a CLETS Domestic Violence Restraining Order as being financially motivated, I am hereby with drawing the request...for spousal support."

When Heard, 30, filed for divorce in late May, she requested $50,000 per month, but a judge denied it after granting her a temporary restraining order against Depp. In documents filed on May 27, Heard said her average monthly income was $10,000, and claims her expenses to be $43,700 per month.

The actress still has the right to request spousal support in the divorce, after her restraining order against Depp is dealt with. The restraining order hearing is set to take place on Friday.

Meanwhile, police were sent to Depp and Heard’s downtown Los Angeles home on Monday, and LAPD confirmed to ET that Heard’s attorney is the one who placed the call. While Depp, 53, is currently believed to be in the Bahamas, Heard’s team is reportedly claiming that the actor is in violation of the temporary restraining order that Heard was granted last month, by sending his people to collect items from the house.

The LAPD Central Division added that neither Depp nor Heard were at the scene, however, their reps were eventually able to “work things out." They do not believe the court order was violated.
