A court hearing to consider claims of domestic violence made against actor Johnny Depp by his estranged wife Amber Heard has been postponed.

The 53-year-old Hollywood star was issued with a temporary restraining order in May following allegations that he abused Heard.

A spokeswoman for Los Angeles Superior Court said the case will take place on August 15 and 16, after a telephone discussion between the judge and lawyers for Depp and Heard on Thursday.

The temporary restraining order against Depp will remain in effect until August 15, a court spokeswoman said.
