Amber Heard allegedly stayed silent about domestic abuse to ‘prtoect Johnny Depp’s career’

The legal counsel of 30-year-old actress Amber Heard said she hesitated to tell the police that her husband, 52-year-old actor and producer Johnny Depp, was physically abusive toward her, so as to protect his career and reputation.

Attorneys Samantha Spector and Joseph Koenig described Heard as a “hero” for finally revealing the truth, and said she was a “brave and financially independent woman,” whose intention was not to go after money. At the end of May, Depp was ordered to maintain a distance of at least 100 yards from Heard after she claimed he threw a cellphone at her face during an argument on Saturday, May 21. Heard then filed for divorce on Monday, May 23, citing irreconcilable differences. She and Depp were married for 15 months and separated on Sunday, May 22.
