Johnny Depp has filed a petition to keep details of his divorce proceedings from Amber Heard confidential in order to protect the former couple’s privacy.

More specifically, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor will not grant his wife access to his financial details and fortune until she promises to keep quiet about them, according to reports.

The court filing, obtained by People, reveals that Depp is requesting that any forthcoming information discovered during divorce proceedings – including financial information and witness statements – remain confidential.

The legal document goes on to explain: “Amber’s need for financial information to resolve this case is distinct from the public’s appetite for celebrity divorce.”

Then adds: “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.”

Depp, 53, also claims that he has asked Heard, 30, to keep things private, but says she “has inexplicably refused to sign any agreement,” and that she “and/or her counsel have participated in at least one media story which contained specific provisions from prior settlement communications.”

The actor’s request comes after Heard – who filed for divorce after 15 months of marriage, claiming that Depp abused her throughout their union – applied for financial and more personal documents.

His lawyer, Laura Wasser, has denied all allegations and stepped in to ensure that details of the star’s investments, property and expenditure remain private if they are to be released.

A court hearing has been scheduled for September 8.
