Depp plans to sell part of his art collection, but it is unclear whether or not it is related to the divorce. Preparations for the sale were underway prior to the divorce announcement. Furthermore, since Depp has been collecting the paintings since the 1990s, it is unlikely that Heard would have a claim on them. The couple resides in California, which is a community property state. This means that only assets acquired during the marriage are likely to be considered marital property and subject to division. The marriage lasted only 15 months.
