Johnny Depp presses for confidentiality agreement with Amber Heard

Washington D.C., July 21 (ANI): Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's divorce saga is getting messier by the day as the actor has filed new documents for confidentiality agreement of their now very public split.

According to the documents, the 53-year-old actor, responding to ' The Danish Girl' actress' request for financial information, has agreed to the fact that she has a right to the information, reports E! Online.

Depp has asked to put a confidentiality agreement in place before handing any document over, as a means of protecting their privacy.

However, the documents say that Heard has declined to do so.

"Johnny does not dispute that Amber is entitled to the majority of the information sought in her discovery requests and subpoenas. He willing to produce the documents necessary for Amber's evaluation. He has asked, however, that a confidentiality agreement be executed prior to the production of documents in order to protect the parties' privacy," read the document.

"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. 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," it continued.

Thus, the ' Black Mass' actor's team argued, "Amber's need for financial information to resolve this case is distinct from the public's appetite for information about celebrity divorces. Yet Amber has inexplicably refused to sign any agreement to maintain confidentiality in this action.

Johnny has proposed two different versions of a confidentially agreement and has expressed his willingness to consider revisions and/or an alternate agreement drafted by Amber's counsel."

The documents reveal that Depp had asked Heard to sign a confidentiality agreement on May 27, 2016, noting that many media outlets have sited "sources close to Amber" in their coverage of the divorce.

The documents also indicate that the two teams tried to settle in mid-June into order to "avoid media exposure" and "resolve the matter amicably," and that Depp was willing to use the mediator Heard proposed.

However, they failed to schedule a meeting.

Now, as Heard proceeds to request more information, Depp continues to press for confidentiality.

"Johnny is merely trying to protect the documents and information Amber seeks from unwarranted disclosure to the media and other individuals not involved," the documents read. (ANI)
