Amber Heard has withdrawn her request for $50,000-per-month spousal support from estranged husband Johnny Depp. The actress originally filed the declaration with her initial divorce request, but was declined. According to court documents obtained by E! News, Heard, who was accused of making false claims for cash in very public ways, says the original monetary request was “used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence.”


Heard’s temporary restraining order against Depp is set to bring the two to court Friday for a hearing, after which, the actress’s lawyer states she is free to re-file for support again. The “Danish Girl” star filed for divorce on May 23, with claims of physical and psychological abuse from her husband of 15-months. Following the restraining order hearing, Heard's attorney told E! she could seek up to a "maximum of 30 month for spousal support" due to their short marriage.
