Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's divorce and legal battle does not seem to have arrived at any conclusive climax. Depp triggered a massive wave of commotion when he filed a legal documents asking the court to order his ex-wife to pay back the unsettled monetary sanctions.
The legal documents specified $100,000 as the fees Depp had incurred in attorney's fees and costs as sanctions and asks the court to order Amber to payback the amount. Further, according to the People magazine, the documents also state that in the event that Amber fails to contribute $100,000 to Depp's attorney's fees and costs as sanctions, Depp asks that he be allowed to deduct the same from his next equalization payment.
"The impact of her relentless pursuit on Johnny — the damage her false allegations have caused his personal and professional reputation, his and his family's emotional well-being, and his finances appears to be of no interest to Amber," read the filed legal documents.
Heard's attorney also made no delay in responding to the motion and reported in a statement writing, "After his string of recent setbacks at the box office, I'm glad that Johnny Depp seems to have rediscovered his comic touch with this laughable motion. It is just another lame attempt by Mr. Depp and his team to not pay my client the money she is owed. We look forward to prevailing in court — and to getting sick children and women in need the money that Mr. Depp is denying them."
In the week's latest retrieved documents, its been found by E!News that Depp's legal team alleges Amber for pursuing "public litigation" that stands in violation of the non disclosure, confidentiality clause in their divorce agreement.
"(1)Amber wants to maintain the media's attention and thereby preserve her own fleeting relevance, and (2) Amber wants to secure a more favorable deal than she previously negotiated," the documents specified.
Amber invariably, responded to the issue of confidentiality, "He also claimed that I violated the confidentiality provisions of the [Deal Point Memorandum] by announcing that I was donating my settlement to charities". She wrote. "In fact, I made those donations in good faith and I was responding to the leaks by Johnny's agents bragging that I had settled for substantially less than a reported, earlier offered sum and attempting to label me a gold digger."
Although there seems to logical end to the ongoing legal battle of allegations and explanations, the court hearing is scheduled for after the holidays in January 2017.
