Splitsville: Amber Heard files for divorce from Johnny Depp.

Wow. We weren’t expecting this headline when we woke up this morning.

It turns out Hollywood actor/Barnaby Joyce hater, Johnny Depp, and his wife of just over a year, Amber Heard, are filing for divorce.

Citing “irreconcilable differences” Amber, aged 30, filed her divorce petition on Monday, just three days after the death of Depp’s mother. While the couple was only married in February last year, according to TMZ they did not sign a prenuptial agreement, and Amber has formally requested spousal support from her estranged husband who is 22 years her senior.

The couple had two weddings – a small and private ceremony on a beach in the Bahamas, and another in Los Angeles that Depp’s sickly mother could attend.

The pair have been embroiled in controversy since their run-in with Australian biosecurity forces, in particular Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, over illegally sneaking in their dogs Pistol and Boo.

It’s undoubtedly been a turbulent and incredibly difficult week for the Pirates of The Caribbean actor, who lost his mother on Sunday (May 22) and whose latest feature movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass, premieres on Friday.

Were you surprised to hear of the split?
