Amber Heard Denies Johnny Depp’s Claim She Wants To Settle Divorce Out Of Court
Amber Heard is denying a claim made by Johnny Depp’s camp earlier on Thursday that she’s willing to settle their divorce out of court. The actress says that her estranged husband’s lawyers are lying because they’re afraid of what she’ll reveal during a trial.
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, sources for Depp told TMZ that his and Heard’s respective lawyers were requesting that a judge postpone Friday’s planned trial, which is supposed to determine if her restraining order against the actor will become permanent. Depp’s people further claimed that Heard was willing to settle all addition terms of their divorce out of court, as well as drop her domestic abuse charges in return for spousal support.
However, Heard’s attorneys are reportedly now shooting down the other side’s claims, maintaining that she has no plans to settle her domestic violence case. Heard’s people also say that Depp’s camp is only claiming she wishes to settle for fear that the actress’s testimony will prove her domestic abuse allegations to be true.
Heard’s sources further insist that she and her team never requested to postpone Friday’s hearing, and are ready to move forward with the restraining order trial. Depp and Heard’s ongoing legal battle has been a case of he said, she said since it began, and this latest development puts even more uncertainty around the situation. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates. UPDATE: The judge granted the continuance requested by Depp’s attorney, and now the hearing was postponed and the restraining order extended.
