Johnny Depp has remained a beloved and respected actor for decades, but the allegations lodged by estranged wife Amber Heard may change all that.

As we know, Heard filed for divorce earlier this week, then later sought a restraining order from the courts, claiming that Depp had assaulted her.

Yesterday, Heard told a judge that Depp had thrown an iPhone at her face, and she had the bruises to prove it.

Now, even more disturbing details of Depp's abuse have come to light, and if what Heard alleges is true, they are of Charlie Sheen-level proportions.

Heard named three specific incidents of abuse she endured at the hands of her husband, reports E! News.

"His temper is exceptionally scary for me as it has proven many times to be physically dangerous and/or life-threatening to me," she told the courts.

She recalled one incident in December 2015 in which she "truly feared that my life was in danger."

Heard additionally cites an altercation on her birthday in April of this year during which Depp hurled a "magnum size bottle of champagne at the wall and a wine glass" on her and on the floor.

"Johnny then grabbed me by the shoulders and pushed me onto the bed, blocking the bedroom door," she continued. 

"He then grabbed me by the hair and violently shoved me to the floor."

Heard claimed that Depp's continued use of cocaine and alcohol fueled the abusive attacks, according to TMZ.

She said he was "barely ever sober" during their 15 months of marriage, which greatly impacted his mental state. 

"Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship," she told the court. "So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse." 

Heard was granted the restraining order, which prohibits Depp from coming within 100 yards of his wife.

At the time of Heard's court appearance, Depp was in Portugal performing at the Rock in Rio festival with his band The Hollywood Vampires.
