Is anyone really surprised that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are getting divorced? Yeah, didn’t think so. Is anyone surprised that she’s the one who filed? Nope, not really. But what about the fact that she filed her divorce petition on Monday, just three days after Johnny’s mother passed away? OK, that’s actually pretty messed up.
You know what else is messed up? The fact that the two, who have been married for 15 whole months, didn’t have a prenup.
Did Depp go into this with blinders on? Or perhaps he was blinded by Heard’s youth and beauty, and didn’t think about anything else. Because when one half of a couple is worth about $400 million, while the other is worth a measly $10 million (decent, but still peanuts compared to Johnny), a prenup seems like a no-brainer. Add in their California divorce, which means HALF, and Johnny making $30 million in 2015, the year they were married, and, well, things are about to get interesting.
Depp has already asked the judge to reject Heard’s claim for spousal support as all kinds of reports come out of the woodwork. Like this ditty from People about how Amber never wanted to get married in the first place, and was just a “regular super cool hipster chick living with roommates who dated girls” and “couldn’t believe” this was her life now.
TMZ says Depp’s family hated Amber; his late mom, his two sisters and his kids all disliked how she treated him, and thought she was “using Johnny for his money and fame” and to “boost her own career.” Oy.
At least one good thing is coming from all this: no more awkward videos. But buckle up, the nastiness is just getting started.
