LOS ANGELES: Actress Amber Heard has alleged that her former husband Johnny Depp is trying to delay their divorce by insisting she signs a non-disclosure agreement before he submits financial documents to the court.
The 30-year-old Magic Mike XXL star made the accusations in new court documents, which she filed on Tuesday, July 26. In the documents, Heard’s legal team claimed that Depp, 53, is deliberately trying to stop the divorce from going ahead quickly and quietly after he told the actress there would be a USD 100,000 fine for every time any financial information was leaked.
The pair is also reportedly squabbling on a date for Heard’s deposition. His team has suggested two dates in August but Heard said she is unable to make it because she is filming Justice League Part One in London.
However, Heard said she has offered to appear in court on a Saturday but Depp’s team isn’t keen. Documents from Depp’s lawyer Laura Wasser claims Heard has already shared information about the couple to the media.
Meanwhile, Heard currently has a temporary restraining order against Depp after she claimed he attacked her with an iPhone, leaving her with a bruised eye. She also alleged that “during the entirety of our relationship, Depp has been verbally and physically abusive” to her.
The pair announced their divorce in May after just 15 months of marriage. Johnny Depp has been married to actresses Jennifer Grey, Sherilyn Fenn and Winona Ryder previously.
Depp also had a high-profile four-year romance with Kate Moss. Depp was in 14-years long relationship with Vanessa Paradis.
Earlier Johnny Depp made her first appearance since his split with wife Amber Heard at annual Starkey Hearing Foundation Awards Gala in St Paul.
