The divorce battle continues between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, as Johnny Depp has asked for Amber Heard to pay him $140,000 in legal costs.
In new court documents filed by Depp’s lawyer Laura Wasser and obtained by PEOPLE, the Hollywood actor wants to be allowed to deduct the owing amount from his next settlement payment to the 30-year-old actress.
Johnny Depp has already incurred over $US1m in legal fees over the course of the bitter battle.
During proceedings, Wasser has also questioned Heard’s behaviour, saying that she has been acting “erratically” and “uncooperatively” throughout the case.
However, Amber Heard's lawyer responded to Johnny Depp's attempt to get his legal fees paid with a scathing statement.
“After his string of recent setbacks at the box office, I’m glad that Johnny Depp seems to have rediscovered his comic touch with this laughable motion. It is just another lame attempt by Mr. Depp and his team to not pay my client the money she is owed. We look forward to prevailing in court — and to getting sick children and women in need the money that Mr. Depp is denying them.”
The ex couple and their legal teams will address this new motion in court on January 13, 2017.
