The very public divorce between Johnny Depp and his wife of 15-months, Amber Heard, has taken another dramatic turn.
According to E! News, the actor is refusing to give up financial information among other records to his estranged wife.
Documentation obtained by the US publication reveals Johnny’s response to Amber’s demand for monetary records, in which he requests a confidentiality agreement to keep all further information out of the public eye.
The blonde beauty has reportedly failed to sign such agreement.
"Johnny is merely trying to protect the documents and information Amber seeks from unwarranted disclosure to the media and other individuals not involved."
"Johnny does not dispute that Amber is entitled to the majority of the information sought in her discovery requests and subpoenas. He willing to produce the documents necessary for Amber's evaluation," the documentation reads.
“He has asked, however, that a confidentiality agreement be executed prior to the production of documents in order to protect the parties' privacy."
"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 couple were married just over a year.
The petition goes on to reveal that not one, but two confidentiality agreements have been produced, “yet Amber has inexplicably refused to sign any agreement to maintain confidentiality in this action.”
The telling papers also suggest that the 30-year-old and her team leaked information to gossip site TMZ, which in turn “violated provisions."

Amber has been granted a temporary restraining order from her former beau as the ongoing, bitter legal battle continues.
Amber was pictured leaving court with a bruise to her right cheek on May 27.
