A hearing on Amber Heard’s allegations that Johnny Depp physically abused her is expected to last up to a week, prompting a judge Tuesday to delay its start.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor ruled Tuesday that the hearing will begin Aug. 17, two days later than planned. Moor ordered the delay after concluding the hearing may take up to five days.

The domestic violence allegations are one aspect of the actors’ contentious divorce.

Heard filed to divorce Depp on May 23, and a few days later obtained a temporary restraining order after accusing the actor of repeatedly hitting her during a fight in their Los Angeles apartment.

Depp’s lawyer has denied the allegations, and she said Tuesday he wants the hearing concluded as quickly as possible. “This is weighing heavily on my client,” attorney Laura Wasser said.
