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’
