Amber Heard's representative call in police after Johnny Depp's team raids house
Representatives for Amber Heard have called the police after her estranged husband Johnny Depp's aides reportedly violated a court order and raided the former couple's home on Monday (13Jun16).
The actress filed to end the couple's 15-month marriage in May (16), and then obtained a temporary domestic violence restraining order against Depp, accusing him of abusing her throughout their marriage.
Under the terms of the order, the Pirates of the Caribbean star has to stay at least 100 yards away from the Downtown Los Angeles home he shared with Heard, local law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com.
However, reports suggest that members of Depp's camp entered the home on Monday (13Jun16) and began taking items from the property, removing decor from walls and gathering furniture which they insisted belonged to the actor.
Although Depp himself was not present, Heard's team reportedly called in Los Angeles Police Department officials on the grounds of a possible violation of the restraining order.
While the terms of the ruling include a "move-out order", which allows Depp to recover his clothes and any personal items needed until a hearing set for Friday (17Jun16), Heard's legal team believes Depp's people are pushing the boundaries of the order.
Meanwhile, sources close to the actor tell TMZ his team is acquiring his "personal items" and insist their actions are within the scope of what the order allows.
It is unclear whether Heard was at home when the alleged raid took place, but Depp is currently lying low in the Bahamas as their divorce battle continues.
Ironically, his retreat in the Bahamas, which he purchased in 2004, is where he and Heard tied the knot in February, 2015.
The former couple's case will be back in court on Friday, when a judge is expected to determine whether to extend the temporary restraining order against the actor.
