Johnny Depp responds to divorce proceedings

Amber Heard & Johnny Depp

Actor Johnny Depp has spoken publicly in response to his wife Amber Heard filing for divorce.

Actress Heard cited "irreconcilable differences" in the superstar couple's marriage.

In the statement, Depp said he was hoping to divorce "quickly." Depp's press release also said: “Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation, and lies about his personal life.

Reports state that there was no pre-nuptial agreement.

The breakup occurred a month after the company made an apologetic video for illegally smuggling Heard's pet dogs into Australia during a visit. Depp was reportedly 'humiliated' by the ordeal and felt, according to The Sun newspaper, that as the dogs were Amber's, she should have carried out the necessary checks.

The couple met on the set of the movie Rum Diary in 2011 and married in 2015.
