10 celebrity couples who had to fight for custody of their pets

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s dogs Pistol and Boo are making headlines again, but this time there are no allegations of dog smuggling. The mutts are embroiled in the high profile couple’s acrimonious split, with Heard and Depp allegedly “locked in a bitter custody battle” over them.

It’s reported that Heard is determined to keep Pistol, who was given to her by her ex-girlfriend Tasya van Ree, but Johnny wants to keep both dogs.

It’s not the first time celebrity couples have fought over their pets after breaking up — and all pet owners will understand why. Pets are part of the family, and it can be really tough to say goodbye to them. Drew Barrymore, Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst have also gone through custody battles over children of the furry variety. 

However, if reports are to be believed, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are determined to do things a little differently. Apparently, Harris didn’t realize how much he would miss Swift’s cats (Dr. Meredith Grey and Detective Olivia Benson), and Swift has agreed to give him “visitation rights.” Conscious uncoupling for the sake of the cats, it seems.
