Amber Heard & Johnny Depp: Latest on Violence Allegations

On the cover of People this week is Amber Heard, bruised and sporting a cut lip, in a photo that she says was taken in December 2015 after Johnny Depp abused her. Heard previously described this incident in a court filing last week, claiming, "there was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life."

People has more photos of Heard with facial injuries here, which Heard says were taken by a friend after the incident.

Heard filed for divorce last Monday, after Depp allegedly threw an iPhone in her face during an argument last Saturday. She appeared in court on Friday with a bruised face to file abuse claims and take out a temporary restraining order against Depp.
