Actress Amber Heard split from superstar husband Johnny Depp - just two days after his mother died.

The actress has filed to end the couple's one-year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for spousal support.

The couple wed in February, 2015, just over a year after Johnny asked Amber to be his wife.

The court documents suggest Johnny and Amber separated on May 22, just two days after the Pirates of the Caribbean star's mother died.

The actress, who met her future husband on the set of 2011 movie The Rum Diary, has not been by Johnny's side as he promotes his new movie Alice Through the Looking Glass, which hits cinemas in the U.S. on Friday, but no one saw the split coming.

Johnny was asked about the whereabouts of his wife at the premiere in Hollywood earlier this week but he simply brushed off the questions by explaining she was working.

This was Amber's first marriage, while Johnny was previously wed to sweetheart Lori from 1983 to 1986. He also enjoyed a lengthy romance with French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children, model and actress Lily and Jack.

Both actors have had a tough few months - as well as the marriage split and the death of Johnny's mother, they also faced serious legal charges in Australia after the actress smuggled their pet dogs Pistol and Boo into the country. She received a one month good behaviour bond without conviction in court in Australia last month after pleading guilty to producing a false document relating to the dog-smuggling case.
