Meet Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's Divorce Lawyers

The acting couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are getting divorced after only 15 months. She reportedly filed papers only a few days after Depp's mother died, spurring rumors that the Depp family hated Heard, his newer younger wife, according to the Daily Mail.

While some media outlets are focusing on the family -- most notably the fact that Depp's sister and production company manager has spoken out about the divorce --- others are focused on the divorce lawyers. People noted that Depp is represented in the divorce by Laura Wasser, whose name is becoming almost as common as the many celebrities she represents, while Heard is represented by Samantha Spector, who is less famous but a rising star.

For those who do not know, Phil Spector is a songwriter and music producer credited with great artistry, who created a thing in pop called the "Wall of Sound."

Elon Musk and Talulah Riley Divorce Again

Actress Talulah Riley and Elon Musk thought they were meant to be together forever a couple of times, but they are finding it's not working out.

The last marriage happened in 2013 and now Riley is seeking another divorce reportedly.

If you are worried, they are committed to remaining friends, which appears to be the extent of the commitment they wish to have to each other for now. But who knows? If things go the way they did last time, we may find ourselves reading about yet another Musk and Riley marriage, not too long after the divorce filing is approved.

Frances Bean Cobain Divorcing, Seeks to Keep Inheritance

She is however reportedly open to paying Silva -- a rocker, like her father -- spousal support. The two were together for five years before getting married in a small, secret ceremony (mom, Courtney Love, did not attend).

There is yet another twist in the story of Khloe Kardashian's divorce from Lamar Odom. It's not happening. The reality stars reportedly withdrew their dissolution of marriage documents from California courts this morning.

But after Odom collapsed at The Love Shack in Nevada and was rushed to the hospital last week, Khloe joined him and it became apparent that the two are technically still in a legal union.
