Days after filing for divorce from "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp, actress Amber Heard appeared at L.A. County Superior Court to press domestic violence charges against Depp, according to a TMZ report.

"She claims Depp smashed his iPhone on her face," the report says. "Amber claims during the alleged attack, Johnny shattered various objects in the apartment. She says she was on the phone with a friend during the fight, and when Johnny grabbed her phone she screamed to her friend, 'Call the cops!' The friend called 911 and cops came to the residence."

"As for why Depp and his people are calling BS," the report added, "first she never filed a police report, and she posted Instagram pics after the alleged beating and never showed any injury."

The Court told The Hollywood Reporter, "the two were in court, appearing before a judge who grants restraining orders, but paperwork had yet to come through detailing the hearing."

Heard and Depp filed for divorce after 15 months, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Read the full report over at Page Six.

Update: A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles has granted Heard "a temporary restraining order until another hearing is held," according to Variety.
