Johnny Depp wants Amber Heard to pay $100k worth of attorney fees

There appears to be no signs of a ceasefire in Amber Heard and Johnny Depp‘s ongoing divorce proceedings.

In new court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Depp, 53, is asking that the court order Heard, 30, to pay $100,000 toward his attorneys’ fees and costs after the actress filed an “entirely unnecessary” Request for Order earlier this month.

If Heard does not pay the fee within 10 days of the court’s order, Depp has requested that he be allowed to deduct that amount from his next divorce settlement payment.

According to the documents, Depp has already racked up nearly $1 million in attorney’s fees and costs with his lawyer Laura Wasser.

The new filing also calls Heard’s behavior throughout their divorce proceedings into question, stating that she’s acted “erratically” and “uncooperatively.”

“The impact of her relentless pursuit on Johnny — the damage her false allegations have caused his personal and professional reputation, his and his family’s emotional well-being, and his finances appears to be of no interest to Amber,” state the documents.

Depp also claims that Heard has continuously violated their confidentiality agreement “almost weekly.”

In November, Heard partnered with the #GirlGaze Project for a new video about domestic violence, and briefly shared her personal story, but did not mention Depp by name.

“Amber wants to maintain the media’s attention and thereby preserve her own fleeting relevance,” state the documents.

A court hearing on this motion is scheduled for Jan. 13, 2017.

Heard filed a Request for Order on Dec. 13 to ensure that Depp pays the actress the remaining portion of the $7 million divorce settlement. She also requested that her $35,435 legal fees be paid in full. 

In her court filing, Heard alleged that “despite months of efforts and repeated breaches by , the parties have been unable to reach agreement on a stipulated form of Judgment” and claimed that Depp, among other allegations, had failed to pay the succeeding installments of the settlement.
