And here’s another reminder that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce is still a bottomless pit of drama. Last week, Johnny’s team of lawyers filed papers to keep Amber and her team of lawyers quiet about the details of the divorce, like his current financial situation. They also side-eyed Amber’s lawyer’s request for access to financial information from Johnny’s Hollywood Vampires bandmates.
Well, both TMZ and UsWeekly report that it was Amber’s turn to do some document filling/shit-flinging yesterday. According to court documents that were filed by her lawyers on Tuesday (no word on if they were dropped off in a borrowed Tesla), Amber Heard thinks Johnny Depp’s request for her to sign a gag order is his way of stalling their divorce. Amber’s lawyers aren’t happy that Johnny’s lawyers want Amber to sign a confidentiality agreement before he releases his financial information. They consider it Johnny’s attempt at “stonewalling” the progress of their divorce.
Amber also thinks the specifics of Johnny’s confidentiality agreement are about as ridiculous as that knock-off Anna Wintour wig he wore in Willy Wonka. According to documents, Johnny wants Amber to be fined $100,000 every time his financial information is leaked, regardless of who it was leaked by.
Amber and Johnny are also having problems trying to decide on a court date for her deposition. Johnny’s team suggested August 3rd and 8th, but Amber is scheduled to be in London filming Justice League then. Amber offered to fly back on a Saturday, but that won’t work, because apparently Johnny’s lawyers don’t work weekends.
Johnny may have been accused of dragging his dirty feet in this divorce, but he definitely doesn’t want to waste any more time picking a date for Amber’s restraining order deposition. TMZ says Johnny really wants that deposition to happen for the sake of his precious credit standing. He’s worried that the possibility of a permanent restraining order might mess up future credit checks.
It’s obvious that both sides are stalling for time, but it’s obvious why Johnny’s side is stalling. It’s going to take months, maybe years to get that bedraggled human hair clog ready for court. The power washer hose-downs alone could take well into October.
