Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Court Hearing Postponed
Depp and Heard were scheduled to face off in court on Friday, when a judge was expected to determine whether or not he needed to extend the temporary restraining order against the actor, but according to TMZ, the estranged couple is now looking to work out a settlement. Sources tell the outlet Depp and Heard will discuss an agreement to avoid contact with each other and will also work out details surrounding property settlement and spousal support. In her divorce filing, Heard reportedly asked for $50,000-a-month in support and believed the court could have ordered the Pirates of the Caribbean star to pay her around $1 million temporarily per month, due to his 2015 salary of almost $30 million. However, Heard’s lawyer filed a declaration on Monday, insisting the actress only asked for financial backing from her estranged spouse because she thought it was the standard operating procedure in a divorce case. She has reportedly withdrawn her request. But, in the documents filed, she reserved the right to request financial support after the restraining order issue is handled. Depp’s lawyer has denied Heard’s abuse claims. A new court date has not been set.
