LOS ANGELES, Jan 4: Hollywood star Johnny Depp has claimed that Amber Heard is making a "blatant attempt to extend her 15 minutes of fame" through their divorce.
In the documents in which the actress filed a Request for Order motion she claims that Depp has not lived to to his "obligations to me under the (settlement), including payments, allowing me to retrieve my personal property, transferring title of a vehicle to me and meeting regarding division of the furniture and furnishings in the residential units we occupied," reported E! online.
Heard, 30, also denies Depp's request for USD 100,000 incourt sanctions and is now seeking more money in the settlement to account for the additional attorney's fees and costs associated with her request.
The 53-year-old star's team responded on December 30, claiming the actress is only using the divorce to seek more fame.
"Her request is entirely unnecessary under the law and suggests a last-ditch effort to garner media attention and somehow further her public persona by virtue of proximity to Johnny Depp. From the inception of this dissolution Amber has sought to build a case in the court of public opinion.
"Amber is now courting renewed media attention with this unnecessary Request for Order. 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," the response states.
