Johnny Depp's wife Amber Heard has accused the beloved actor of beating her on more than one occasion, according to reports on Friday.

Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Depp on Wednesday. The couple has been married since February 2015, after dating since 2012.

Pictures showing Heard with a bruised face surfaced online Friday on the websites of TMZ and People magazine. According to TMZ, Heard has filed a restraining order against Depp, claiming that her injury is the result of Depp hitting her in the face with his iPhone.

People reported that the incident was "not an isolated event," based on a source close to the couple.
