Johnny Depp’s al­ready frag­ile im­age has taken an­other blow, after it came to light that the ac­tor’s ex-wife Am­ber Heard de­scribed him as a “mon­ster” dur­ing their 18-month mar­riage. “Johnny and I re­fer to his other per­son­al­ity, the part of him that is present when he beats me up – we call that the mon­ster,” the ac­tress says in a re­cently re­leased de­po­si­tion taken amid the cou­ple’s 2016 di­vorce. “I was pet­ri­fied of the mon­ster,” she adds.

It comes after the trou­bled star de­nied the al­le­ga­tions, telling GQ in Oc­to­ber, “To harm some­one you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn’t, it couldn’t even sound like me.”

The ac­tor was then of­fi­cially dumped by Dis­ney in De­cem­ber from his big­gest money-maker, the Pi­rates Of The Caribbean fran­chise – with the stu­dio re­veal­ing it wanted “to bring in a new en­ergy and vi­tal­ity”.

But it’s no se­cret that ri­vals Warner Bros were heav­ily crit­i­cised for in­clud­ing Johnny in the cast for Fan­tas­tic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindel­wald last year, in light of the do­mes­tic vi­o­lence ac­cu­sa­tions.

With the ac­tor re­port­edly now re­sid­ing in the Ox­ford­shire coun­try­side, could it be that Johnny’s given up Hol­ly­wood for good?

Rolling Stone claimed last year that Johnny’s $900 mil­lion for­tune is ‘al­most all gone’
