Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s marriage lasted for just about 15 months, but they have gone through a lot of accusations after that open to the whole world in court trials. A British newspaper article in 2018 called Depp as a wife-beater, and he has been trying to prove them wrong. Both of them are well-known actors and got married in 2015 in a private ceremony with just family and friends present. But everything after that had not been turning out not so well for them.
Let us start from the beginning as to how everything began and what happened which led to the current situation-
They both met the first time for the movie ‘The Rum Diary,’ where they played the characters who were in a relationship. The film took place in 2009. In 2010 Amber Heard came out as a bisexual and was in a relationship with Tasya Van Ree. Johnny Depp is the principal character in the Pirates of Caribbean franchise and 2010 he is mentioned as one of the highest-paid actors of Hollywood with the worth of 75 million dollars by Forbes.
After having a successful marriage with Vanessa Paradis for 14 years, they both get divorced in 2012.
Before Vanessa, Depp got engaged to Winona Ryder, but they separated in 1993, and Depp changed his tattoo, which he had for Winona. In 2013 Depp and Heard appeared in the movie ‘The Long Ranger.’ But out of nowhere, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard get engaged and announce it in 2014 with Depp considering Heard as sweet and good for him. Finally, in February 2015, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard get married. They were aged 51 and 28, respectively, at the time. In July the same year, Amber Heard gets charges for illegally bringing two dogs to Australia without any permission from concerned authorities.
But to everyone’s surprise in May 2016, Amber Heard filed for a divorce stating unending differences between them as the reason. But things take an ugly turn from there in 2016 as Heard claimed that Depp was abusive during their marriage and files restraining order against him. The statement led Depp to deny all her claims saying that Heard is the one blackmailing him into providing her more funds after divorce. In August, they both finally decided on a fix where Amber received 7 million dollars and donated it to charity. They finally got divorced in 2017 and promised not to insult or belittle each other again. After this, Heard gets involved with Elon Musk in an on-off relationship but ended once and for all in 2018.
Things didn’t stop there for Depp and Heard. In April 2018, an article by Sun Newspaper called Depp a wife-beater, and that led Depp to file a lawsuit against Britain’s Sun Newspaper. In December, Heard writes about domestic violence in Washington Post, and Depp again files a defamation lawsuit against the article in 2019. He also added that Heard was the abusive one. Depp’s lawyer said the wife-beater tag was just the destroy his career and reputation as Depp has never hit a woman. Heard was in court and said in reports that it was hard for her to relive the marriage split and was disappointed that Depp shared details of their marriage to the whole world.
Heard claimed that Depp would get violent after taking alcohol and drugs and used to hit, slap, and throw bottles at her. Depp, on the other hand, argued that Heard was short-tempered and, in one instance, cut the tip of his finger with a broken bottle. Similar such allegations continued about heavy drug usage and addiction, which led to the state of the relationship that it is today. Depp is currently fighting two lawsuits results to which will lead to more revelations and looks into the life of stars.
