AceShowbiz - %cAmber Heard% believes %cJohnny Depp% wants to "punish" her by delaying their final divorce proceedings. In response to Depp's recent documents asking the Los Angeles Superior Court to order Heard to pay his lawyers' fees and costs, her lawyer Pierce O'Donnell filed new papers last Friday in which Heard accused Depp for prolonging "this proceeding as a means of punishing" her.
"I want my life back," she stated in the documents obtained by ET Online. "I want to be divorced from Johnny now." Her lawyer called for "the prompt dissolution of marriage" whilst claiming Depp "frustrated the final settlement of this matter at every turn through his relentless, mean-spirited campaign against Heard."
"Indeed, if [Depp] were truly interested in settlement (rather than in perpetuating his feud with [Heard] and forcing her to pay attorneys' fees), he would have devoted his efforts to completing the required two forms of settlement, which still lack complete signatures from his attorneys, and would have cooperated in other actions required by the DPM [Deal Point Memorandum], rather than wasting the resources of the Court with this bad faith request," continued the statements.
Heard's respond came after Depp claimed she's trying to get more money from their divorce settlement in order to "extend her fifteen minutes of fame." The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor said in his papers, "Amber is now courting renewed media attention with this unnecessary Request for Order."
"This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to revive extraordinarily public litigation and [Heard's] short-lived acting career," so read the statements. "Her application is not only a blatant attempt to extend her fifteen minutes of fame but also a waste of the Court's limited time and resources and an embarrassing grab for addition and unwarranted attorney's fees."
