According to PEOPLE magazine, which exclusively obtained the documents, she earned a total of $259, 876 last year including payment for her roles in The Danish Girl ($31,112); Paranoia ($45,314). In addition to her acting work, Heard was paid $120,000 by Tiffany & Co and $50,000 by Bulgari.

Depp is consistently ranked as one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood with an estimated net worth of $400m, thanks to his roles in The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd and dozens of other hits over his 30 year career.

After her expenses, she was left with $51,461. Her residual checks from 2013's Machete Kills and 2011's The Rum Diary totalled $2,390 and $2,473 respectively.

On Tuesday night, Heard filed an official complaint with the LAPD about the domestic violence incident involving the actor, according to her lawyers.

"If that occurs, and the truth is revealed, there is no doubt that Amber's claims will be substantiated beyond any doubt, and hopefully Johnny will get the help that he so desperately needs."

Heard obtained a temporary restraining order against Depp on Friday, claiming the actor threw her mobile phone at her face, striking her below the right eye during a fight on May 21.

Los Angeles police have said they responded to the incident but found no evidence of a crime.

Ms Spector and Mr Koenig wrote that Heard did not initially give a statement to police because she was trying to protect Depp's reputation and career. Heard said in a sworn declaration in her restraining order application that Depp threw her phone at her during a fight on Saturday, striking her cheek and eye.

She submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order on Friday. She also wrote that the actor pulled her hair, screamed at her and repeatedly hit her and violently grabbed her face.

Depp is travelling overseas on tour with his band, Hollywood Vampires.

He has denied all claims and his lawyers say she is falsifying allegations to "secure a premature financial resolution."
