Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Despite the court hearing for the restraining order case of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard approaching, the legal team of the actor has not yet deposed the actress amid reports that the two teams have met for nine hours to come up with a settlement.
Heard was photographed on Saturday entering an attorney’s office and many believed that it was for her deposition. However, an insider close to Heard claimed that the 30-year-old was not deposed by the legal team of Depp even if she flew in the U.S. from London for that matter.
Accordingly, Heard was to arrive at Depp’s attorney’s office for her deposition at 11 A.M. on Saturday. The actress arrived on time but was unable to find a private entrance immediately so she was inside the building at around 11:30 A.M.
The source added, "Although Amber was ready, willing and able to go forward with her deposition, it was not taken by Johnny's attorneys. She waited for 10 hours and at no time, did Amber ever refuse to start the deposition." The legal team of Depp has not yet commented on this.
Depp was also ordered to appear for a deposition before the status conference, which was scheduled on Tuesday. The attorney of Heard, however, agreed to move the deposition for Wednesday in order to accommodate the actor but the legal team of the actor now says that he is unavailable for two days.
The domestic violence restraining order hearing remains scheduled this August 15 and 16.
As for the settlement, the two legal teams were not yet able to reach a deal despite the nine-hour long meeting.
The pair announced their divorce in May after 15 months of being married.
The people involved in this report are yet to comment and confirm the above-mentioned details.
