He says he wants the entire case to become public because he thinks it will exonerate him.

The most recent filing, where he accuses her of 'masquerading', was obtained by The Blast.

In April this year, an avalanche of previously unseen documents from their divorce dispute emerged as part of the defamation lawsuit.
