Amber Heard's court appearance in Australia has been adjourned until November

Amber Heard who is married to Johnny Depp, was due to appear in a Queensland courtroom today to face charges of smuggling the couple's pet dogs Pistol and Boo into the country illegally earlier this year.

However, according to BBC News, Amber, 29, didn't appear as expected and the court date has been postponed until November 2.

The 'Magic Mike XXL' starlet was seen in Venice, Italy, over the weekend, where she joined Johnny, 52, on the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie 'Black Mass'.

The couple are at the centre of a diplomatic storm with Australian officials amid allegations they illegally brought their pups into Australia without proper permits in April.

Amber is also accused of producing a false document.

The actress could potentially face a 10-year prison sentence if found guilty.

Over the weekend, Johnny joked that he "killed his dogs and ate them", poking fun at Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce, the man who threatened to put down the dogs earlier this year.

He deadpanned: "I killed my dogs and ate them, under direct orders of some kind of, I don't know, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia.
