Amber Heard rejects spousal support offer as Johnny Depp goes to private island amid divorce drama
Amber Heard rejected a spousal support offer from estranged husband Johnny Depp because he wanted to include a restraining order against her, TMZ reports.
The actress – who accused Johnny of domestic violence and was granted a temporary restraining order against him – says money is ‘the lowest priority,’ and she’s primarily concerned about her safety, sources told the gossip site.
Lawyers for Amber and Johnny, 52, have been in talks over a settlement, and she did not respond to his offer of $50,000 a month for eight months.
That’s because the Pirates of the Caribbean star also wanted a ‘mutual restraining order’ and Amber refused, saying she was not the violent one, the site reports.
The couple reported did not have a prenup, and under California family law she is legally entitled to half of what Johnny earned during their marriage.
She will appear in court next Friday to seek a permanent restraining order.
Meanwhile, Johnny this week jetted to his private island in The Bahamas. The 52-year-old has been in Europe promoting his new movie Alice Through The Looking Glass and on tour with his band Hollywood Vampires.
But his lawyer appeared in court in Los Angeles on Friday and accused Amber of delaying a deposition until after the restraining order hearing on June 17.
Amber says she and her friend and witness Rachel Pennington can’t give a deposition until next week, because they are in New Jersey for Rachel’s engagement party, TMZ reported.
But Johnny’s lawyer Laura Wasser claims Amber is just trying to delay until after the restraining order hearing next week. The delay is causing Johnny to be ‘tried in the media’ and damaging his reputation, she claimed in court documents.
