The outlet shares that Depp has filed new documents responding to Heard's request for financial information, stating that Heard is entitled to the documents but asking that a confidentiality agreement be put in place before he gives her the information in order to help keep the proceedings quiet.
Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May, later alleging domestic abuse by the actor. The pair met on the set of the film The Rum Diary in 2011 and married in February 2015.
"Johnny does not dispute that Amber is entitled to the majority of the information sought in her discovery requests and subpoenas. He's willing to produce the documents necessary for Amber's evaluation," the documents read. " He has asked, however, that a confidentiality agreement be executed prior to the production of documents in order to protect the parties' privacy."
"This case has been extraordinarily public since its inception," the documents continue. "There have been daily articles in the domestic and foreign press about this proceeding and the parties' lives. 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."
The documents also reveal that the actor asked Heard to sign a confidentiality agreement on May 27, 2016, noting that many media outlets have cited "sources close to Amber" in their coverage of the couple's divorce.0comments
PEOPLE reports that Depp's request has since been granted, with a judge approving the actor's move to maintain privacy during the proceedings.
According to court documents, any forthcoming information discovered during the proceedings, including financial information and witness statements, will be designated as confidential. Furthermore, any experts or witnesses who testify in the case will be required to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
