Amber Heard is leaning on friends like Amanda De Cadenet as her divorce from Johnny Depp intensifies.

Heard, 30, was spotted going to church in Los Angeles on Saturday, casually dressed in sunglasses, a black shirt and jeans. De Cadenet comforted her with embraces and rubs on the back as she got in her car and drove away.

De Cadenet has supported Heard since news of her allegedly abusive relationship with Depp broke. The British talk-show host, 44, retweeted several messages backing Heard after the actress claimed in court documents that Depp, 53, had thrown a cell phone at her face on May 21, resulting in bruising. She submitted a photo of her bruised face as evidence.

De Cadenet had previously shared a photo of herself with Heard and model-turned-actress Amber Valletta during her birthday party, one day after Heard claimed she was abused by Depp. In the photo, which has since been deleted, Heard is seen smiling but with her hair placed over half of her face.

Heard’s hearing on the domestic violence claims has been pushed to August, and a temporary restraining order has been reissued. In court documents responding to Heard’s initial request for a temporary restraining order, Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, claimed that the actress “is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

Heard had only been married for 15 months when she filed for divorce from Depp on May 23, citing irreconcilable differences. In her request for a temporary restraining order, she alleged that Depp had been abusive throughout their four-year relationship.

“Amber did what she had to do to take care of herself,” a Heard source previously told PEOPLE.

Meanwhile, Depp is spending time on his private island in the Bahamas, where his daughter Lily-Rose recently paid him a visit.

“He has no plans to return to L.A.,” a source tells PEOPLE of the actor. “He misses nothing about L.A. but his kids, and they are visiting him in the Bahamas.

“Having his kids around is always great for him. He has really missed his kids,” the source says, adding that Depp has also had friends “flying back and forth for visits” to the island. “He likes being surrounded by people and everyone is trying to cheer him up.”
