Yesterday news broke that Amber Heard had filed for divorce from Johnny Depp citing ‘irreconcilable differences’, and now more details are emerging about the couple’s relationship and aftermath.

Johnny, 52, and 30-year-old Amber began dating in 2012, and were married in February last year in an intimate ceremony on Johnny’s private island in the Bahamas.

There were reported conflicts between the couple from the beginning, and sources are now suggesting that Johnny’s children with ex-wife Vanessa Paradis, Lily Rose, 17, and Jack, 14, did not get along with Amber.

There are also claims that Johnny’s mum, Betty Sue, who passed away three days before the divorce was filed, believed Amber ‘treated [Johnny] like crap’ and was using him for her own financial gain.

Johnny’s estimated fortune is placed at a whopping $553 million as he owns multiple luxury homes (and an island!), while Amber’s net worth is thought to currently sit at around $6.2 million.

The couple never negotiated a pre-nup so Amber is seeking spousal support, but Johnny’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, has asked that the judge dismiss her claims.

While it’s all looking like it could get quite messy, Johnny is the only one to have addressed the split. In a statement given to People this morning, his rep says, ‘Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.’
