Johnny Depp has filed a petition to keep all legal proceedings in his pending divorce from Amber Heard out of the public eye..
According to People.com:
Depp is requesting to keep any forthcoming information discovered during the proceedings, including financial information and witness statements, as confidential. Furthermore, he is requesting that any experts or witnesses who testify in the case be required to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
The filing claims that “Amber’s need for financial information to resolve this case is distinct from the public’s appetite for celebrity divorce.”
The petition continues: “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.”
The documents claim that Depp’s legal team had previously asked Heard to agree to maintain confidentiality, but says she “has inexplicably refused to sign any agreement” to do so.
Not a bad idea being that she’s basically talked about everything since the start of their separation…
