Johnny Depp Vacations in Ibiza (with a New Look) as Amber Heard's Deposition Stalls
Johnny Depp is renting a villa in Ibiza, Spain, as his divorce from Amber Heard continues, sources tell PEOPLE
The actor was spotted arriving in Ibiza, Spain, via private jet over the weekend, and sources say he is currently renting a villa on the island. On Saturday, he was photographed smiling while boarding a yacht. He wore aviators with a loose poncho and jeans, while sporting a new haircut and mustache.
Meanwhile, Heard returned to Los Angeles from London – where she’s working on her new film, Justice League – for her scheduled deposition last Saturday.
But a source says Heard’s deposition was never taken, though she was willing to give it.
“Although Amber was ready, willing and able to go forward with her deposition, it was not taken by Johnny’s attorneys,” the source says. “She waited for 10 hours and at no time did Amber ever refuse to start the deposition. There was nothing preventing Johnny’s counsel from commencing the deposition during that time.”
The source did not clarify what happened during that time, but lawyer Steve Mindel, who is not affiliated with the case, says that the parties may be working on a private settlement or planning other legal maneuvers before the deposition.
“I suspect that this was a great time for both sides to talk settlement, considering neither party ultimately wants to be deposed,” Mindel says.
In the few weeks before Heard returned to London for work, she was spotted in Miami, where she spent time with Tesla founder and tech billionaire Elon Musk. They were later photographed partying at the same London club. A source previously told PEOPLE the two are not dating, and “are friends and have been for a few years.”
Moving forward, both Heard and Depp are expected to appear in court for the domestic violence restraining order hearing, which is scheduled for Aug. 15 and Aug. 16.
Heard was granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband in May after claiming Depp abused her during their relationship. She filed the request shortly after filing for divorce from the actor.
In court documents responding to Heard’s request for a restraining order, Depp legal team alleged that Heard “is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

An insider told PEOPLE that Depp is ready to move past both his ongoing divorce from Heard and the case.
“It’s a very sad situation for him,” the source said. “He feels stressed about all the Amber drama … He never anticipated getting a divorce. He just wants it all the be over and move on.”
