Johnny Depp does not want to drag his divorce out. The 52-year-old actor issued a statement regarding his recent split from actress Amber Heard on Thursday to Us Weekly. 

"Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life," Depp's rep said. "Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly." 

The statement followed news that Depp filed a motion to deny Heard's request for spousal support. Heard filed for divorce on Monday, just a few days after the death of Depp's mother. The two were married for just 15 months. 

This would be Heard's first divorce, but the second for Depp, who was previously married to Lori Anne Allison. The actor has two children from a prior 14-year relationship with singer and actress Vanessa Paradis.
