Amber Heard Made 51K Last Year- Does She Deserve Spousal Support?

LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala in LA

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?

More Photos Of Injured Amber Heard Photos Have Surfaced

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 11.11.41 AM
For all the doubters…here are more pics.
The Johnny Depp/Amber Heard situation is getting pretty dire, as Amber has explained to the court that “there was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life.”

People just published a whole lot of photos of Heard with some pretty bad looking facial injuries: bruised eyes, cheeks, a cut lip- all allegedly caused by Depp during that 2015 incident.

We have some of them in a little collage below, though they are what you’d expect. A rep for Depp has not responded to the photos, or about Heard’s allegations of abuse. Laura Wasser, Depp’s attorney, said in court documents that Heard is “attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”


To add another layer of sad, LAPD spokesperson also  told PEOPLE that officers responded to a 911 call but determined there was “no evidence of any crime” at the scene. In a statement Tuesday, Heard’s lawyers said she declined to make a statement to police at the time to “protect her privacy and Johnny’s career,” but plans to make one and “hopes to give the LAPD the opportunity to conduct an accurate and complete investigation.”

I’ll be awaiting the statement.

Amber Heard Denies That She’s Blackmailing Johnny Depp

Jenna Dewan & Amber Heard Spotted In London

Amber Heard swears it isn’t about blackmail.

The actress denies that she is blackmailing ex husband Johnny Depp or lying in her claims about domestic abuse, in a letter to TheWrap from her lawyer on Monday. It’s a shame that she even needs to write the letter- our outlook around domestic abuse is so skewed. The Wrap reports:

The “allegations against Ms. Heard are absolutely and unequivocally false,” said Peter Sample, a lawyer for Heard. The letter said that the claim of blackmail by Depp’s friend Doug Stanhope “has no basis in reality and is nothing but the typical celebrity muckraking for profit.”

Sample demanded a retraction of the article, calling the claim defamatory and “outrageous.” TheWrap will respond to the letter through its legal counsel.

Stanhope, a friend of Depp, published a guest column in TheWrap this weekend in which he said Depp was being falsely accused of physical abuse and instead was being manipulated by Heard, who was “threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms. Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified.”

This comment sparked the denial by Heard’s lawyer, who wrote: “It is highly offensive and disturbing that you would choose to publish it in the first place.” TheWrap reached out to Heard’s publicists for comment on Sunday when Stanhope’s guest column was published, but received no response.

A lawyer for Depp has denied that he was physically abusive to Heard…but really hate people doubting victims of domestic abuse. If she had gotten robbed and had evidence that this was so, would be choose to question Amber? Why so then do we always seem to want to discover if a domestic abuse allegation is “false” or “true?” It’s hard enough coming out as a victim.

What do YOU think?

Amber Heard Had Johnny Depp WHIPPED.

"The Rum Diary" Premieres In Paris

More Amber Heard/Johnny Depp NEWS! Are you sick of this yet? Me either!

Yesterday Page Six had a summary of what’s happened with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp over the past four days or so, and if you know ICYDK, you know we were all over that shizzz. BUT-  Page Six had a few new quotes, mostly from some random divorce lawyer who is not working with Depp or Heard, and just like, sharing?  I guess a lot of media outlets are doing this: going to divorce lawyers to get some “professional perspective” on this very volatile divorce. A New York-based divorce lawyer named Suzanne Bracker weighed in and did not mince words:

“Honey, you know she’s jonesing for the real money, and she has him by the movie-star balls. If she keeps talking, his reputation is going to be mud, and he’ll start losing his female fan base. She’s looking for ‘shut-up’ money, which is a premium. He’s going to have to pay her to shut up….[but] The threat of this kind of exposure is much worse than the exposure itself.”

(Via Page Six)

That last part is Bracker saying that if Heard wanted that sweet Pirate’s money, she would try to work this out with Depp’s people for her silence behind-the-scenes. Which, reportedly, is what she was trying to do, but you know, not so quietly. I think she may have had to do this when Johnny’s people so publicly dismissed her divorce filings.

Sounds very stable. Very, Very Stable.

In addition, the Sun had a lengthy and exclusive story on Sunday, skewing very heavily towards Team Depp. They paint Amber as a party golddigger who got “too close” to her female friends. You can read the full Sun piece here, but it kinda makes me sick. Some highlights, via Celebitchy:

Depp thought Amber was cheating. Amber and Cara Delevingne worked together in 2014 and “as they spent more time partying and flaunting their friendship, Johnny, 52, is said to have become increasingly infuriated by their behaviour. Johnny was ‘driven insane’ by his suspicions that Amber and model Cara were ‘making a fool of him’, a source close to the movie icon claimed last night. And his fears cast a huge shadow over their marriage as the actor lost all faith that bisexual Amber, who he wed in February last year, would ever be loyal.”

Amber was “indiscreet.” A source tells The Sun: “Amber’s friendship with Cara, which grew closer and closer over time, brought about the beginning of the end for her marriage to Johnny. They used to party together a lot and made no attempt to hide the fact that they were quite flirty. Amber always made her bisexual tendencies quite obvious. But that would spark furious rows with Johnny, who hated how indiscreet she was being. On one occasion he even screamed at her, ‘You’re making a fool of me’.

Cara & Amber partied together a lot in 2014. While Depp filmed Alice Through the Looking Glass, a source said: “He needed rest and sleep. But Cara and Amber seemed to have no respect for that. They were constantly partying hard going out and enjoying themselves. It didn’t help that Johnny couldn’t stand Cara. He found her obnoxious and disrespectful and would ask his staff to warn him when she was going to be around. He didn’t like quite a few of Amber’s friends, but he took a particular dislike to Cara. It was the friendship with her that really started to drive him insane.”

Amber’s relationship with iO Tillett Wright. Sources claim iO became “entangled” in their marriage troubles and iO is currently “staying with Amber in the couple’s home.” A source tells The Sun: “iO is another person who’s been very close to Amber and, as far as Johnny was concerned, has been much too close to her for comfort. They hang out a lot and confide in each other and he seemed to resent the fact iO played a big part in Amber’s life as the two of them were struggling. That was another thing that riled him up quite a lot.”

Amber has a dark side too. A source insists: “Amber painted herself as the beaten-down wife who did nothing wrong, but there is definitely another side to the story of their marriage. They have had a series of blazing rows, but Amber has a furious temper herself and she knew how to wind Johnny up and push him to the end of his tether. She would play on the age gap between them, calling him fat, uncool and old. He vehemently denies ever hitting her on Saturday night. He said that he never hit her, that she had a vicious temper and that he has only acted in self-defense. By the end of the marriage they truly hated each other and would slag each other off all the time. There was no love there anymore. But in spite of that, Johnny is devastated about all of this.”

It sounds like Depp simply had an issue with Amber being close to ANY woman, and Amber just like, didn’t really wanna be with him. UGH.
