"During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me," she alleged in her complaint. "He has a short fuse."

Depp, 52, has been ordered to stay away from her.

It came after she was photographed with a large bruise on her right eye. The photo was taken last Saturday night, shortly after Depp allegedly struck her in the face, according to a report.

A source told People magazine: "This was not an isolated event. This was only the latest incident."

According to People, the duo had a rocky start to their relationship. Heard reportedly had cold feet at their engagement party in March 2014, nearly a year before they tied the knot.

Heard has also come under fire for filing for divorce just three days after Depp’s mother died, but a source said: "Amber did what she had to do to take care of herself."
