Johnny and Amber married in a private ceremony at their Los Angeles home in 2015, after dating for several years. Amber filed for divorce from Johnny on May 23, 2016, and obtained a temporary restraining order against the Oscar nominee. She claimed Johnny had physically abused her during their relationship, and that it was usually while he was high on drugs or alcohol.
