Well, the battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has hit another plot twist!

According to TMZ, the Johnny and Amber's lawyers are requesting that Friday's court hearing over a permanent restraining order be postponed.

Per the legal reps, they believe a settlement between the dueling exes is near. Essentially, neither Depp or Heard want their dirty laundry revealed to the public.

If a settlement goes through, the former lovers will have resolved EVERYTHING including the final details of their divorce, spousal support, and their domestic abuse dispute. The agreement would mean that A.H. couldn't file a civil suit against the actor for domestic abuse in the future.

What's particularly interesting about this development is that Amber had given up her request for spousal support to prove that she's steadfast in her campaign to hold J.D. accountable for his alleged crimes. A settlement would mean that not only is she getting the money she originally wanted, but it would also mean that nothing would come of her domestic abuse platform.

As for why the two ultimately decided to hash things out themselves, we suspect neither party wanted to testify in court. It could be that the exes BOTH have something to hide.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.
