Childhoods continue to crumble as more details emerge from the developing Amber Heard/Johnny Depp divorce—now, allegations of rampant drug use have come out, which sources close to Heard hint are the root cause of his violent outbursts. Indeed, she claims he was "inebriated and high" on the nights of the two specific incidents of domestic violence she's discussed in public.
Fans around the world were shocked this week to hear that actress Amber Heard had filed for divorce from Johnny Depp after 15 months of marriage (and three days after his mother's death) along with accusations of domestic violence.
Heard alleges that Depp shoved an iPhone into her face the night before she requested a divorce. She received a temporary restraining order against the A-list actor on Friday. He cannot come within 100 yards of his soon-to-be ex-wife.
Now, friends of Heard are telling TMZ that the actress is outraged that Depp is calling her a liar, and suggest that he might not be able to remember what happened, in any case. That's because they allege Depp is constantly higher than Hunter S. Thompson (specifically from doing more coke than Blow's George Jung) and drunker than Captain Jack Sparrow.
Amber, through her sources, says that Depp was "barely ever sober" during their marriage unless he was shooting a film—when a private chef and trainer would drag him into temporary sobriety. Excerpts from her legal documents show her painting a clear picture of his behavior:
Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship. So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse...and his temper is exceptionally scary for me.
Meanwhile, Depp's lawyers have disputed all allegations. Part of their argument cites the fact that Heard declined to formally charge Johnny when the police arrived after the alleged iPhone incident, and that she posted Instagram pictures later that seem to not include her now-famous bruise.
The actor himself took the stage in Portugal while on tour with the band Hollywood Vampires. This makes sense from a "I'm living my life as normal" perspective, but it's not a look that screams "Of course I'm not doing coke."
Depp's lawyers say that Heard's claims of domestic violence are merely an attempt to get an "early payday," which is one of those quotes that's bound to do more harm than good, like trying to give someone a hug when you have scissors for hands.
