Johnny Depp and his wife Amber Heard are expected to fly out of Australia after a government minister threatened to put down their illegal terriers.
The Australian Department of Agriculture said the Yorkshire terriers – named Boo and Pistol – must be removed from the country by Saturday.
Quarantine officers are now expected to interview the Hollywood couple before they leave to investigate whether they purposefully misled customs about the dogs on arrival.
It could end with the duo being fined or even facing jail, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The investigation comes as Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said it was time the dogs ‘buggered off back to the US’.
He added that Depp and Heard might not get the quick escape to the United States they were looking for.
The duo could be forced to put their dogs down anyway if they don’t hold the correct permits to re-enter their home country, possibly rendering their pets ‘stateless’, Mr Joyce told the ABC.
‘The question is if he breached our laws, then did he follow the correct laws in the US?’ the minister said.’My worry is will the US let them back in? If not, will they have anywhere to go?’
Mr Joyce also revealed the Australian government ‘bent over backwards’ to get monkeys through biosecurity checks for the set of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Depp and Heard – who were staying at a rented home in the Gold Coast – were issued a strict warning by the Department of Agriculture on Tuesday, demanding they remove their two terriers from the country within 50 hours or risk having them put down.
‘We bent over backwards to get their monkeys in – it was only just recently they had to get monkeys in [for their set] and we had to try and do everything in our power [to get them in],’ Mr Joyce told Channel 10.
‘So they know what the deal is, and that’s why we’re a bit miffed by them.
It’s almost time for round two of Channing Tatum’s stripper story as Warner Bros Pictures just dropped a new teaser for “Magic Mike XXL.”
Also starring Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Elizabeth Banks, Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett Smith, the forthcoming phallic feature film is slated to hit theaters on Wednesday, July 1st.
Per the synopsis, “The next chapter finds the remaining Kings of Tampa ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.”
The movie stars were photographed arriving in Brisbane, Australia, on Tuesday morning local time.
Their arrival Down Under follows rumors that things were rocky between the pair, with People reporting on Monday that the two were leading “separate lives.” The story has since been pulled from the site.
The sighting of the couple marks the first time the two have been seen in public since their Feb. 3 civil ceremony in Los Angeles and Feb. 7 wedding celebration at Depp’s private island in the Bahamas.
The couple’s reunion comes just days before Heard’s birthday, with the actress turning 29 on Wednesday.
Depp’s arrival in Australia is not only positive sign for his marriage, but also for the latest film in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
Amber Heard attended the world premiere of When I Live My Life Over Again at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday.
The 28-year-old actress was spotted on the red carpet both solo and with her co-star in the new film, Christopher Walken, 72.
Missing from the event was Amber’s brand-new husband, actor Johnny Depp, 51. For the premiere in New York City, Amber went for full glamour in a sparkly brown cocktail dress.
Held up by spaghetti straps and showing plenty of cleavage, the dress fell to just below the actress’ knees.
Amber accessorized with diamond stud earrings and her wedding band, letting her long, blonde hair provide a little more flair as it cascaded loosely over her shoulders.

Dressing like a man has never looked so feminine and fierce.
Amber Heard steamed up the premiere of her new film by skipping wearing the standard red carpet gown in favour of a stunningly sexy suit in New York on Thursday night.
The 28-year-old star was unmissable as soon as she arrived at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of Adderall Diaries.Proving less can be a lot more, the actress wore a re-imagined – but still simple – two piece Stella McCartney black suit.
Of course the look was not your average man’s suit, but instead featured a pair of soft loose fit pants which flowed as the star walked and a jacket that tied at the front.
Raising the heat on the carpet, Amber skipped wearing a shirt so that the jacket’s lapel created a plunging neckline.

It was ‘invitation only’ at Tiffany & Co.’s 2015 Blue Book Collection celebration dinner and the ladies certainly earned theirs.
Amber Heard rivaled the jewelry being honoured that night as she sashayed to the venue at ABC Kitchen in New York City on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old wife of Johnny Depp stepped out braless as she wore a thin, ember-hued dress with spaghetti straps by Temperley London, which moulded to her figure with every step.
Amber’s earthy features were brightened by a slick of crimson lipstick and a light dusting of rouge.
Her long brunette tresses cascaded about her shoulders in wild abandon, while her ears, neck and wrist sparkled with stunning jewelry.
Amber smiled as heads turned her way at her approach, the hem of her silky dress fluttering above her beige strappy heels.
Amber’s new film, When I Live My Life Over Again, is set to premiere at 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, which kicked off on Wednesday as well.

Christopher Walken and Amber Heard are vying for the high note of the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.
The two star in writer-director Robert Edwards’ When I Live My Life Over Again, which casts Heard as a struggling singer-songwriter who escapes to the Hamptons home of her father (Walken), an over-the-hill crooner desperately charting his own musical comeback.
The feature — with Oliver Platt, Ann Magnuson, Hamish Linklater, Henry Kelemen and Kelli Garner rounding out the cast — will make its world premiere at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival. As the film explores topics of ambition and naivete, it also features musical performances by both Walken and Heard — a routine ask for the former, a seasoned theater performer. But Heard took singing lessons and learned how to play the piano and guitar to showcase the film’s original songs, with music by The Psychedelic Furs keyboardist Joe McGinty and lyrics by Edwards. The film’s team already is eyeing an awards push for the onscreen tracks.
