Timeline of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s relationship


Johnny Depp lost his High Court libel claim against the publisher of The Sun last year, with a judge finding that allegations he was violent towards his ex-wife Amber Heard were “substantially true”.

But the Hollywood star claims he “did not receive a fair trial” and is asking the Court of Appeal to grant permission for him to appeal against the ruling at a hearing on Thursday.

The high-profile trial in July last year heard Mr Depp and Ms Heard met in 2011 on the set of The Rum Diary, a film adaption of a novel by Mr Depp’s friend Hunter S Thompson before they started living together in around 2012.

Here is a timeline of the key events in their relationship and the bitter legal battle that has ensued.

– Early 2013: Mr Depp is alleged to have been physically violent to Ms Heard for the first time.

Ms Heard claims Mr Depp slapped her three times after she joked about a tattoo he got on his arm during his relationship with actress Winona Ryder, which originally read “Winona Forever”, but was altered to “Wino Forever” after they split. He denies the allegation.

– February 3: The couple marry in a private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles.

– Around March 3-5: The key incident in The Sun’s defence, a three-day trip to Australia described by Ms Heard as a “three-day hostage situation” in which Mr Depp was allegedly physically and verbally abusive while drinking heavily and taking drugs.

Mr Depp denies the allegations and says Ms Heard lost her temper after a conversation about a post-nuptial agreement.

– April 21: The couple arrive in Australia with their pet Yorkshire Terriers Boo and Pistol, which they did not declare to customs officials in Queensland. Ms Heard was charged with bringing the dogs into the country illegally – though the charges were later dropped and the pair recorded a bizarre video apology.

– Around May 22: The pair separate, Ms Heard claims after an incident at their LA penthouse in which Mr Depp allegedly became very angry and destroyed property with a bottle of champagne.

– May 23: Ms Heard files a petition for the dissolution of their marriage.

– May 27: Ms Heard applies for a temporary domestic violence restraining order, which prevents Mr Depp from contacting her.
