Los Angeles - Johnny Depp has asked a judge to reject Amber Heard's claim for spousal support.
The 30-year-old actress filed for divorce from the Pirates of the Caribbean star on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking spousal support, according to gossip website TMZ.
But the 52-year-old actor - who is estimated to be worth around $400m - is now said to have filed a response through his lawyer Laura Wasser asking for Amber's maintenance claim to be turned down.
The couple are not thought to have put a pre-nuptial agreement in place before they tied the knot in February 2015.
Amber wrote in the divorce documents that they separated on 22 May - two days after the actor's mother Betty Sue Palmer passed away.
Johnny and Amber got close after meeting in 2012 while working on The Rum Diary and they tied the knot in front of just 24 people in the Bahamas last year.
This will not be Johnny's first divorce. He married make-up artist Lori Anne Allison in 1983 but they went their separate ways two years later.
He also split from French actress partner Vanessa Paradis - who he has daughter Lily-Rose, 16, and 13-year-old son Jack with - in 2012 after 14 years together.
Amber was in a three-year relationship with girlfriend Tasya van Ree until 2011.
Johnny has been doing a lot of publicity lately for his new film Alice Through the Looking Glass and has been shooting the new Pirates of the Caribbean film this year.
