— But seriously

Johnny Depp is asking Amber Heard to pay $100,000 of his legal fees, and here's why


We are seriously in shock right now, because we just heard that Johnny Depp wants Amber Heard to pay 100k of his legal fees — as they’re apparently reaching upwards of $1 million. According to new court documents obtained by PEOPLE, this is a pretty *huge* deal not just because of the request, but because if she doesn’t pay the fee within 10 days of the court’s order, he wants to pull the fee from the divorce settlement.

ICYMI, Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of domestic abuse earlier this year, and it was believed that Heard donated the entire divorce settlement. However, it was found out this month that Heard and Depp were still arguing about the divorce settlement. Why? Because Depp wants the donation to come from him, while Heard wants to pay it herself. Basically, this divorce is about as complicated and complex as it gets.

According to the documents, Depp’s lawyer says,

“The impact of her relentless pursuit on Johnny — the damage her false allegations have caused his personal and professional reputation, his and his family’s emotional well-being, and his finances appears to be of no interest to Amber.”

But things aren’t so simple. There have been extremely mixed responses to the dispute between Depp and Heard.
