Well, they lasted 15 months — a whole 14 months longer than I thought they would — so kudos to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard for at least crossing a year of marriage before deciding, “Nah, this really isn’t working.” Amber filed for divorce from Johnny this week citing irreconcilable differences, as you do. There are a few fucked up things about this case, however, that I find interesting:
- Amber wants spousal support. They didn’t have a prenup, so it’s likely she’ll get some cash out of him for this. I’m not saying that that’s why she married him to begin with, really — Amber has her own money, but it’s basically chump change compared to Johnny’s. I’m not here to call the girl a gold digger, but if you can feasibly support yourself with work, why should he owe her anything? Besides, it’s not like they were together 20 years or something and she doesn’t know what to do without him.
- Amber filed for divorce literally THREE DAYS after Johnny’s mom died. I know when a relationship is over it’s over, but yikes. Sure, they could have separated and done their own thing, but couldn’t the paperwork have waited? Just seems like a pretty stone cold move (which I generally love, but this one rubbed me the wrong way).
Was this all because they had to make that Australian apology video? Was that the final straw that tore this marriage apart?!
Anyhow, I guess that means Johnny’s back on the market if you’re one of the weirdos who thinks he’s in any way attractive and not that he looks like a hobo who hasn’t bathed in about 15 years.
