Just when I was working on a post about a story from Page Six and thinking to myself, “This is going to get even messier,” an extra thick layer of pure messiness landed in my inbox when both TMZ and People reported that Amber Heard wants a restraining order against Johnny Depp because he allegedly attacked her recently and also throughout their 15 month marriage. To think, he looks like a fragile pepaw hobo being helped by a gracious Amish missionary in that picture, but Amber claims he’s a lady beater.
Amber and her lawyer Samantha Spector were in court this morning to file a restraining order against the Mid-Life Crisis in a Scarf, because she’s scared of him. They brought receipts in the form of a bruise on Amber’s face and pictures of the bruises he allegedly gave her during their marriage. TMZ adds that Johnny has been away from Los Angeles since Wednesday promoting Alice Through The Crack Pipe, but Amber still feels like she’s in danger so she wants a restraining order now.
TMZ got a hold of a picture of Amber with a big bruise on her eye. She says that she got the bruise after Johnny hit her with his iPhone on Saturday night, a day after his mom Betty Sue Palmer died. Amber says that Johnny tried to shut her up with cash, but she spit on his shush money offer and instead filed for divorce on Monday morning.

I thought this divorce fight was going to be a messy battle about money and custody of Boo and Pistol, but this escalated quickly. So much for Johnny wanting his “short marriage” to end quicker than a dentist’s will to live when they get a whiff of his shit-covered teeth.
UPDATE: Amber claims that on Saturday, she was on the phone with a friend when Johnny went all Ike Turner and broke a bunch of stuff in their apartment. Johnny grabbed the phone out of Amber’s hands and she screamed at her friend to call the cops. By the time the cops showed up, Johnny ran his ass out of there. The cops told Amber they could track him down and arrest him if she wanted them to. It probably wouldn’t be too hard to track him down. They’d just have to follow the trail of dropped scarves and grease. But Amber told them not to. The cops said to call them if she changed her mind about pressing charges. They took a report before they left. TMZ also posted a picture of the business card the cops gave Amber:
Amber also says that she has video of Johnny beating her.
