Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: What Went Wrong?!?

by at .

Just three days after Johnny Depp's mom died, Amber Heard filed for divorce from the actor this week.

Ouch, right? Pretty harsh, no?

What could have led to Heard making such an important decision at such a difficult time?

Soon after the divorce filing was made public, a source described Heard and Depp to E! News as both being “passionate, intense and opinionated.”

Yes, these traits helped bring them together.

But they were also a constant "source of friction," according to the insider.

Heard cited “irreconcilable differences” on her official papers, a catch-all term that reveals very little.

This, meanwhile, was Depp's second marriage, his first coming to an end in 1985 after two years.

From there, he moved on to high-profile relationships with Winona Ryder, Kate Moss and Vanessa Paradis.

He and Paradis were a couple for nearly 14 years and have two children together, a son named Jack and and a daughter named Lily-Rose.

Depp and Heard met on the set of 2011’s The Rum Diary and got married in a civil ceremony in February of 2015.

"Because of their strong personalities they do not always see eye to eye," the E! source added. "They are both stubborn and overly dramatic, which doesn't help when they disagree."

The last time we heard from Depp and Heard prior to this announcement, they were apologizing for smuggling their dogs into Australia illegally.

For its part, TMZ writes that Depp's family did not get along well with Heard at all.

Multiple people close to the ex-couple claim that Johnny's two kids, his two sisters and his mom "hated" Amber... and didn't keep this opinion to themselves.

They allegedly talked about how Heard would go off on Depp and "treat him like crap."

There was clear tension, this report states, after Depp’s mother moved into Heard and her son’s Los Angeles compound.

Betty Sue Palmer, who passed away on Sunday, told friends that her daughter-in-law was using Depp for his fame and money. She even referred to Heard as a "terrible person."

Finally, People Magazine also has a take on the split.

That publication quotes an insider who says Heard has hesitations about marrying Depp from the very beginning.

This anonymous individual says Amber was "just a regular super cool hipster chick" prior to meeting Depp.

She nearly didn't go through with the vow exchange.

"At their engagement party she kind of got cold feet," the insider alleges, adding:

"She was just like 'What is this scene and what am I doing here? She kind of couldn't believe it was her life now."

Well, it's not her life anymore. And perhaps both sides will be happier in the end as a result.
