Amber Heard has filed a restraining order against Johnny Depp, citing domestic violence.

Not even a day after news went out of Amber Head filing for divorce with Johnny Depp due to "irreconcilable differences," People reported that Heard has also filed a restraining order, citing domestic violence against the actor.

A judge has since granted the restraining order, stating that Depp must stay at least 100 yards away until the next hearing in late June. Heard was granted her request to continue living in their family home, but was denied custody of one of their dogs. The judge also rejected Heard's request to collect spousal support from Depp, which totaled $50,000 a month, as well as covering her legal fees.

She submitted photos as evidence against Depp. She also said that this wasn't an isolated incident, only the most recent one. In fact, Heard alleges that the abuse continued throughout their relationship, with both physical and verbal abuse. Depp denies the claims.

A representative for Depp said in a statement, "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."

The image above was taken in December 2015 and "truly made me fear for my life," Heard said. Her injuries are a result of Depp throwing a cell phone at her face, hitting her cheek and right eye. Heard claims Depp was drunk and high, and pulled her hair, hit her, screamed at her, and violently grabbed her face.

Other photos of bruises from the abuse have also been released.

After the judge granted the restraining order against Depp, a series of text messages between Heard and Depp's assistant, Stephen Deuters, emerged from 2014. In them, both Heard and Deuters discussed Depp's behavior and prior incidents of abuse.

Despite the allegations, Heard has said she won't report Depp to the police because she still loves him and "doesn't want to bury him."
