WASHINGTON: Amber Heard has withdrawn her temporary spousal support request from her estranged husband Johnny Depp as she feels her motive was misinterpreted.

According to court documents, the 30-year-old actress said that she wanted to make clear that her divorce was not about money, reports E! Online.

The documents read that Heard asked for money because she thought it was standard procedure in a divorce case.

She even claimed in the documents that the request is being "used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence."

"In light of the coordinated false and negative media campaign falsely depicting my attempts to attain a CLETS Domestic Violence Restraining Order as being financially motivated, I am hereby with drawing the request...for spousal support,” read the document.
