Amber Heard Files Court Documents Claiming Johnny Depp Has Not Paid Divorce Settlement
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Heard filed a Request for Order with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday to ensure that Depp pays the actress the remaining portion of the $7 million divorce settlement.
Heard’s attorney also claims that, along with stalling payments, Depp has missed the court-enforced deadline of various mandates, including the division of personal property, shipping belongings from his private island in the Bahamas, transferring a Range Rover into Heard’s name, and Depp’s outstanding debts incurred from cars, Neil Lane jewelry and stylist fees. She is additionally requesting that $35,435 legal fees be paid in full.
News of the filing comes nearly three weeks after a source told PEOPLE the former couple’s divorce was nearly finalized.
Heard was set to receive around $6.8 million — which is the rest of the $7 million the former couple originally agreed upon, minus the money Depp already donated directly to Heard’s preferred charities: the American Civil Liberties Union and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Depp agreed to pay out the settlement over the next 12 months, and Heard is expected to turn over the money to the charities by the end of 2018.
