Johnny Depp Claims Amber Heard Wants To Settle Divorce Out Of Court
Johnny Depp’s camp is claiming that he and Amber Heard have both decided that they want to settle their divorce out of court, so their respective lawyers are requesting that a judge postpone Friday’s planned restraining order trial.
As Gossip Cop reported, Heard obtained a temporary restraining order against Depp last month, just a few days after filing for divorce, claiming that the actor had physically abused her. A hearing is scheduled for Friday to determine if the stay-away order will become permanent, but now Depp’s people claim that Heard is open to discussing a mutual agreement in which both parties will avoid each other.
Depp’s sources tell TMZ that both he and Heard are requesting to settle all additional terms of their divorce out of court. Heard is seeking $50,000 a month in spousal support, which Depp may reportedly agree to pay for a total of eight months. Additional provisions of the possible settlement would also include Heard dropping her domestic violence allegations, which the actor and his team have vehemently denied.
As of now, a decision on whether or not Friday’s hearing will be postponed has yet to be determined. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates regarding the ongoing legal battle between the estranged spouses. UPDATE: A judge has granted the continuance request submitted by Depp’s attorney, and now the hearing was postponed and the restraining order extended.
