Heard sought the order against the actor because she claimed he has assaulted her in the past, according to a court official.
Amber Heard was granted a restraining order against her husband, Johnny Depp, on Friday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court official told The Hollywood Reporter.
Heard sought the order against the actor because she claimed he has assaulted her in the past, according to the court official. It is unclear exactly what the restraining order specifies, but a judge granted the order “partially,” or portions of it, the official said.
The order arrives as celebrity gossip site TMZ posted a picture of an injured Heard allegedly taken last Saturday. The news comes on the heels of Heard seeking a divorce from Depp earlier in the week after 15 months of marriage.
A Los Angeles police spokesman said he was unaware of any domestic violence investigation against Depp. Attorneys for both Depp and Heard declined to comment. Publicists for the actors did not respond to a request for comment.
Depp’s latest film, Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, opened in theaters on Friday, beginning the traditionally lucrative Memorial Day holiday weekend at the box office.
Disney declined to comment.
