While numerous reports are circulating as to “what went wrong” in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s 15-month marriage, the 30-year-old actress stepped out on Friday letting her apparent black eye do the talking.
Depp, 52, has yet to comment on the domestic abuse allegations — although a judge granted Heard a temporary restraining order — but one thing is clear: The past 15 months have been difficult for the actor.
The Rum Diary co-stars wed in February 2015 after it was widely reported that they were having relationship woes. “Because of their strong personalities, they do not always see eye to eye,” a source told E! News. “They are both stubborn and overly dramatic, which doesn’t help when they disagree.”

If the couple thought tying the knot would be a quick relationship fix, clearly they were wrong. Within months, rumors swirled that there was trouble in paradise. Shortly after their nuptials, Depp headed to Australia to shoot Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales while Heard stayed behind. Filming did not start off smoothly.
In early March, Depp injured his hand so severely that production had to stop on thePirates sequel. However, the accident wasn’t exactly a stunt gone wrong. Varietyconfirmed that Depp sustained the injury off set.
The Daily Mail reported the mishap happened while Depp was go-karting on a private track at MotoGP world champion Mick Doohan’s massive estate. Australian outlets later described it as a “wild weekend bender,” although that was never confirmed.
Regardless, production was delayed as Depp returned to the States to get surgery. While home in L.A., he and Heard had yet to be seen publicly since tying the knot.
In April, People published an article that the newlyweds were “leading separate lives,” which a source called “not surprising.” However, in a very unusual move for the respected celebrity outlet, it pulled down the article. One day later, Depp and Heard landed back in Australia smiling and holding hands, marking their first appearance as a married couple.
