Shortly after news broke that Amber Heard was divorcing Johnny Depp, her request for a domestic abuse restraining order was granted. According to the actress, 52-year-old Depp had been consistently emotionally and physically abusive toward Heard throughout the duration of their 15-month marriage due to his often "inebriated and high" state.

Now, Daily Mail alleges Depp's abuse of Heard stemmed from the jealousy he felt due to her bisexuality. While the report is fueled primarily by rumor, it is true that Heard is bisexual. It's also true that in the 30-year-old's court petition, she wrote their most recent altercation occurred after Depp "became obsess[ed] about something that was untrue."

That "something" is speculated to be Heard's relationship with bisexual model Cara Delevigne, with which Depp was supposedly uncomfortable.

Also mentioned in her petition was New York-based photographer iO Tillett Wright, who was on the phone with Heard when the altercation hit its peak. Wright called the police after Depp allegedly attacked Heard, presumably making her a witness to the abuse and argument. It remains unclear if Wright will play a hand in Heard's case in the future.

The Adderall Diaries actress dated photographer Tasya van Ree for three years before she began dating Depp publicly in 2012. In an interview with The Times, she said her bisexuality was only a small part of her overall identity:

"I don't want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don't want to have to be defined by it," she said. "I'm fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don't give a f---. I fight, but I shouldn't have to."

Meanwhile, Depp's 17-year-old daughter Lily-Rose came to her father's defense on Sunday, posting a throwback picture on Instagram with a heartfelt caption:

"My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know, he's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same," she said.

The couple's divorce continues to play out while Depp performs overseas with his band, The Hollywood Vampires. On Sunday, the three hit Germany's Hessentags-Arena.
