Splashed all over news websites yesterday was the news that Amber Heard had filed for divorce from her hubby of only 15 months Johnny Depp  after submitting the documents on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.

The pair didn’t have a pre-nuptial agreement in place, and because Amber’s now seeking spousal support – it’s a huge battle over Johnny’s $400 million fortune! Yikes! Californian divorce law says that Amber should receive a minimum of $15 million!!!

Johnny was very close with his mum Betty Sue, who reportedly passed away only three days before Amber had lodged the divorce petition. SO SAD!

Reports say that part of the reason Johnny and Amber had an “extremely bitter” relationship, was because of a fight between his family and his wife, who apparently “hated” Amber, and openly spoke about it.

Betty believed that Amber “treated him [Johnny] like c**p,” and was using him for his money and to further her own career.

After Johnny moved his mother into the LA compound he shared with Amber, things went downhill.

“The tension was palpable. We’re also told that, before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber,” TMZ reports.

“And both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she’d have full control.”

The pair wed on Johnny’s private island Little Hall’s Pond Cay in the Bahamas in February last year, but also got married in LA first so that ailing Betty was able to attend.

Rumours that their relationship had become troubled surfaced just months after  they were married, with some reports saying they “were on the verge of a split.”

In Touch said: “They’re barely talking. Amber is constantly worried about him. He’ll go days without calling or texting her… he parties and it’s caused huge fights.”

Well this looks like it might be one nasty divorce!
