Johnny Depp’s Controversy With His Ex-wife Amber Heard
The fight between Johnny Depp of “Pirates of the Caribbean” fame and his ex-wife Amber Heard has brought many dirty secrets to light in court. Johnny has sued Amber for slander, and the trial is going on right now.
So far in this case, both sides have made many accusations against each other. In this episode of allegations, forensic psychologist Dr. Don Hughes, who is now working for Amber, has made a big statement against Johnny.
Dr. Hughes testified in court and said, “When Mr. Depp was drunk or high on drugs, he would slam Amber on the bed, rip off her nightgown, and forcefully try to have sex with her.”
When Johnny was mad, he used to force Amber to have oral sex. All of this did not happen in loving moments. These were his angry times. It was a moment of dominance, a time when Mr. Depp wanted to be in charge of Amber.
In the defamation case against Amber, Johnny has taken issue with a post that the actress made in 2018. Johnny Depp says that Amber has said many negative and wrong things about him in The Washington Post. In the post, Amber said that he is a survivor of both physical and mental victimization.
Sands in Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) Best Performance Given by Johnny Depp’s
Johnny Depp has played other bad guys in movies before Grindelwald. Once Upon a Time in Mexico was the last book in Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi trilogy.
It came out in 2003. Depp plays CIA agent Sands. He is the kind of agent who will do anything, no matter how bad, to get what he wants.
Sands wants El Mariachi to come out of his self-imposed exile and help stop a plan to kill the president. It’s a little flashy, but Depp is a total badass. He might be happier than he’s ever been.
Sands has a really cool trick with fake arms. Also, it seems like he becomes even more dangerous when bad things happen to him.
In Rodriguez’s action-packed movie, you might think there are a dozen other people better suited for this part. But Depp shows that he can do just about anything.
