"Mia looked up to Johnny a tad too much for Amber's liking, and she felt the father-daughter vibe between them had crossed the line and that Mia was falling for her mentor and Johnny was lapping up the adoration," an insider spilled to The Fix.

"She accused Johnny of cheating on her and he just walked out and called her a jealous monkey... [Amber] needs to be number one at all times, and that is not how Johnny made her feel.

The couple are not thought to have put a pre-nuptial agreement in place before they tied the knot in February 2015.

The 30-year-old actress sought spousal support in her divorce claim, but Depp has since filed a response through his lawyer Laura Wasser asking for Amber's maintenance claim to be turned down.
