Woah, this is fascinating. This divorce keeps getting more and more complicated, sad.
The full filing of Amber Heard’s request for a restraining order had an income and expenses statement attached and People Magazine has details, and it’s honestly pretty shocking and puts things in a very new light for me. While she grossed about $260,000 in 2015 her earnings after expenses, it totaled around $51,000. That’s not a lot at ALL, and quite honestly puts her request for $50,000 monthly spousal support (which was denied) into a different light. Granted, 50,000 a month is a LOT. But when it’s your yearly income, I can see trying really hard to remain stable and profitable, and keep with a certain lifestyle. Johnny Depp made $30 million last year. Here’s part of People’s report:
According to court papers obtained by PEOPLE, Heard earned a total of $259,876 in 2015 from projects such as The Danish Girl, which paid her $31,112 and Paranoia for which she earned $45,314. She also received paychecks from high-end companies Tiffany ($120,000) and Bulgari ($50,000).
But the papers also show Heard’s long list of expenses including agent fees, auto payments and union dues. After all is said and done, the actress took home a total of $51,461 last year.
In a request for a restraining order filed on May 27, Heard asked for spousal support in the amount of $50,000 a month along with protection for her dog Pistol and sole access to the downtown L.A. home where she and Depp have lived since getting married. She was granted the restraining order and sole access to the apartment, but a judge declined to order any temporary spousal support pending the next hearing, or to order Depp to stay away from Pistol.
It’s also really depressing that she actually did make a TON of money last year, but got to keep so so little. It’s like…what’s the point? Poor Amber. I’m really feeling for her. Are you?
