After slightly more than a year of marriage, Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp (opens in new tab), citing irreconcilable differences. The request came just days after Depp's mother, Betty Sue Palmer, died at age 81 (opens in new tab).

According to the divorce petition filed on Monday, Amber is seeking spousal support from her soon-to-be-ex-husband; but TMZ reports that Johnny has already filed a response via his lawyer, asking that the judge deny Amber's request (opens in new tab).

The two first met on set of the 2011 film The Rum Diary, and began dating in 2012. Several years later, in February of 2015, they got married in a private civil ceremony at their home in Los Angeles. 

A mere 15 months after that, Heard wants out. Perhaps it was the 22-year age difference between them, or, as is often the case in Hollywood, work schedules getting in the way. Regardless, we Jamber shippers will have to hang up our hats.

But not before re-watching this Rum Diary trailer a million times:
