Earlier today, several media outlets reported that Amber Heard had requested a restraining order against Johnny Depp, claiming that the actor physically assaulted her on more than one occasion.

Now, the details of Heard’s allegations against her estranged husband have been revealed, and they’re shocking to say the least.

TMZ reports that Heard told a judge Depp struck her in the face with an iPhone on Saturday night resulting in considerable facial bruising. 

According to her testimony, Heard was at home with Depp on the evening of May 21, when he launched into a seemingly unprovoked tantrum smashing various objects around the house.

She claims that the 52-year-old appeared to be "inebriated and high" at the time.

Heard says she was on the phone with a friend during Depp’s tirade, and she reportedly screamed, "Call the cops!" just as he snatched the phone out of her hand.

The friend called 911, but Depp had fled the scene by the time authorities arrived.

Police told Heard that they would pursue Depp and arrest him if she gave a statement, but she refused.

Instead, she filed for divorce from Depp just two days later. 

Amber was spotted leaving the Los Angeles County Courthouse today after being granted a temporary restraining order against Depp.

Some media outlets have claimed that the actress’ facial bruising can be seen in the following footage:

Heard claims the attack was not an isolated incident and that she has video of one of Depp’s violent outbursts.

She also claims that the 52-year-old screen legend offered her money to keep quiet about the assaults, but she refused.

Depp is in Europe promoting his latest film, but he was represented in court today by divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

Wasser told the court that Heard’s claims are "an affront to real victims of domestic violence."

She also claimed that the actress went out partying with friends the day after the alleged attack and showed no sign of injury or emotional trauma.
