Amber Heard files for divorce from Johnny Depp

30-year-old actress Amber Heard officially filed for divorce from 52-year-old actor and producer Johnny Depp on Monday, May 23, three days after the death of Depp’s mother. Heard cited irreconcilable differences as the cause for divorce.

Heard and Depp were married in February 2015 after meeting on the set of the 2012 film The Rum Diary, a film adaptation of a Hunter S. Thompson short story. The divorce comes after a high-profile incident in which Heard and Depp were accused of dog smuggling after failing to declare their two Yorkshire Terriers in Australia. The couple was not charged, but they issued a public apology following the incident.
