Johnny Depp Is Trying to Keep Amber Heard Divorce Details Private

Johnny Depp has filed a petition to keep details of his divorce proceedings from Amber Heard out of the hands of the tabloids.

The court filing, obtained by People, shows how Depp is requesting that any forthcoming information discovered during the proceedings, including financial information and witness statements, remain confidential. Also, he would like any witnesses testifying in the case to sign a nondisclosure agreement.

According to People, Depp’s filing explains that “Amber’s need for financial information to resolve this case is distinct from the public’s appetite for celebrity divorce. This case has been extraordinarily public since its inception. There have been daily articles in the domestic and foreign press about this proceeding and the parties’ lives.

He added, “Every detail of this action has been chronicled by the media and it has become one of the most heavily publicized celebrity divorces in recent memory.”

Depp also claims in the legal document that he has asked Heard to keep things private, but says she “has inexplicably refused to sign any agreement,” and that she “and/or her counsel have participated in at least one media story which contained specific provisions from prior settlement communications.”
