Actress Amber Heard sought a temporary restraining order against husband Johnny Depp on Friday, citing domestic violence, media outlets reported, days after she filed for divorce to end their 15-month marriage.
People magazine posted a photo of Heard, 30, with a bruised right eye and said she had submitted the picture as evidence to back up her claim. The magazine cited an unnamed source saying "this was not an isolated event."
Celebrity news outlet TMZ.com posted a similar photo and said Heard accused the 52-year-old actor of striking her in the face with an iPhone on Saturday night, as well as shattering various objects at their apartment.
Heard appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Friday with her attorney but it was not immediately clear if a judge ruled on her application for a restraining order. She declined to speak to reporters as she left.
Depp, who was attending a charity event in Lisbon, Portugal, was not in court.
Reuters could not independently verify the reports and representatives for Heard and Depp did not respond immediately for comment.
"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," a representative for the actor said in a statement issued on Thursday, according to People. "Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."
Heard filed a divorce petition in a Los Angeles court on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple married in February 2015 after meeting on the set of the 2011 film "The Rum Diary."
Depp, one of Hollywood's top actors, gained fame in the late 1980s after appearing in the popular TV series "21 Jump Street" and later starred in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, as well as films such as "Edward Scissorhands" and "Alice in Wonderland." He stars in the sequel, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," released in theaters on Friday.
