In court documents obtained by People, Depp's attorney dismissed Heard's abuse allegations as being financially motivated, saying, "Her current application for a temporary restraining order along with her financial requests appears to be in response to the negative media attention she received earlier this week after filing for divorce."

The next court hearing is scheduled for June 17.
