According to the legal documents claimed to have been seen by the publication, the actor could be stalling because of public statements made by Amber about domestic violence.

The Daily Mail alleges that it is believed that Johnny Depp is ‘furious’ over comments made by his former wife, which includes a campaign video aimed to raise awareness for the struggles of domestic abuse victims.

The publication believes that Depp feels that Heard has broken the terms of their settlement through her actions. According to the Daily Mail, he sees it as a breach of the confidentiality clause that was agreed.

Amber made headlines again this week, after penning an important open letter about domestic violence for the December issue of Porter. The star never referred to Depp, but did allude to personal experiences within the essay.

The actress wrote, ‘You are not alone.

‘You may have suffered alone behind closed doors, but you are not alone. You need to know that.

‘I want to remind you of your strength, a strength that has been multiplied by the number of women who stand silently behind you – a truth that allowed me to break down the doors I once found myself behind.’

She continued, ‘Let’s start with the truth — the cold, hard truth.

‘When a woman comes forward to speak out about injustice or her suffering, instead of aid, respect and support, she will be met with hostility, scepticism and shame. Her motives will be questioned and her truth ignored.’

‘I never felt like anyone would or could rescue me, so naturally I resented the label of ‘victim’,” she went on. ‘As I write this today, I can promise every woman who is suffering in silence, you are not alone.

‘You may not see us, but we are there.’
