Many Kansas married couples will be heading to court before the year’s end. Some will get locked into legal battles in high asset divorce cases, although most will likely not have tens of millions of dollars at stake like Johnny Depp and other Hollywood stars have had when they severed marital ties. In Depp’s case, it seems the finalization of his divorce was merely the beginning of other legal problems.
A central component in Depp’s divorce was a non-disclosure agreement he and then wife, Amber Heard, signed. In a recent claim Depp filed in court, he stated that Heard has violated that agreement. He is seeking $50 million in damages for defamation of his character.
Heard allegedly published an article that told of her experiences as a domestic violence victim. She has painted Depp out to be an alcoholic who becomes enraged with jealousy whenever she works with male actors. Depp’s attorneys say they have evidence to refute such claims, including surveillance from more than 85 cameras on the former couple’s property.
Depp has also spoken publicly about Heard’s supposed bent toward physical violence. In fact, he said that, during one altercation, she tried to sever his fingers. While their divorce was finalized two years ago, the two stars have not been able to make peace with each other, and the lawsuit Depp has filed is reportedly headed for trial some time next year. An experienced Kansas attorney can provide guidance and support to anyone with post high asset divorce issues in this state.
