Earlier this week, Amber Heard's lawyer, Samantha Spector, said her client did not initially file a police report alleging Johnny Depp bruised her eye in a May 21 argument "to protect her privacy and Johnny's career," but that his "relentless attacks" left her with no choice but to speak to the LAPD, according to TMZ.
Now, sources connected to Amber are reportedly saying the 30-year-old won't file a formal, belated report because she still loves her husband of 15 months and "doesn't want to bury him."
According to the website, Amber, who obtained a restraining order against Johnny a few days after she filed for divorce from the 52-year-old, is worried an official police report would lead to Johnny's arrest and a prosecution, neither of which she wants.
Rumors and conflicting reports about the couple's relationship have abounded since Amber requested a legal dissolution to their marriage on May 23.
After it was reported the actress did not get along with Johnny's family, sources came out of the woodwork denying there was any bad blood.
Multiple reports have claimed Johnny is prone to bouts of alcohol and drug abuse during which he's become violent with Amber. One such claim includes screenshots of a text conversation between Amber and Johnny's assistant from 2014 in which the assistant says his boss feels terrible about his behavior towards her and mentions Johnny kicked her at some point, according to ET.
When Amber detailed allegations of long-term physical and mental abuse in court papers last week, Johnny's lawyers responded in their own court papers that she was "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse," according to Reuters.
Heard is reportedly asking for $50,000 a month in spousal support. In Johnny's response to her divorce filing, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star asked that no such support be granted.
Johnny and Amber, who met while co-starring in "The Rum Diary," married in 2015.
