Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: 2017
In 2011, Depp and Heard met on the production of The Rum Diary. After Depp’s breakup with longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis in 2014, they resumed dating. In the same year, they became engaged, and in 2015, they married in the Bahamas. Heard filed for a restraining order and divorce in May 2016, claiming physical and verbal abuse. On January 13, 2017, their divorce was completed. Heard was awarded a $7 million settlement, which she donated entirely to domestic violence charity. It’s important to remember that this isn’t a divorce case in which the parties are disputing over how assets should be allocated fairly; rather, it’s a libel case initiated by Johnny Depp to clear his name as an alleged “wife beater” as he claims the Sun Newspaper dubbed him. The nation looks to be divided between Amber backers and Johnny Depp followers over what appears to have turned into a fight of the sexes.
