Amber Heard has been trying to avoid this deposition like the plague. Finally a judge has had enough of her getting by with ” I don’t want to!” (insert Veruca Salt voice)
Johnny and Team
He’s been wanting his legal team to grill his estranged wife Amber Heard ever since she won a temporary restraining order against him in late May.
And on Tuesday, Johnny Depp‘s attorneys were in court for an emergency hearing to persuade a judge to schedule a date for the actress’ deposition.
The judge ruled that Amber, 30, must make herself available to answer questions from the actor’s lawyers on Saturday August 6, according to TMZ.
Amber was granted a temporary restraining order against Johnny after claiming in court that her decision to file for divorce from him was prompted by the actor physically attacking her with an iPhone, leaving her with a bruised eye.
In another aspect of the increasingly bitter divorce battle, the actress filed legal documents accusing the Pirates Of The Caribbean star of refusing to hand over financial details to settle the case.
Johnny, 53, has been demanding his estranged wife sign a non-disclosure agreement before he hands over any paperwork, alleging that she and her legal team have been leaking information to the media.
The contract stipulated that a $100,000 fine would be imposed every time Johnny’s financial info is leaked. But, TMZ said Tuesday, Amber branded the stipulation ‘ridiculous.’
