Who is Mathilde Beltran? Johnny Depp's rumored girlfriend is French tutor preparing him for 'Jeanne du Barry'
Beltran was spotted with Depp on July 18 when they were arriving for a performance at the Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera
According to DailyMail, Johnny Depp is seen to be enjoying the single life despite spreading rumors that he is dating a mystery woman as he works on his new film project and continues his music tour in Europe. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor was spotted hanging out with the gorgeous redhead as he moved on from his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp, who has been touring with British musician Jeff Beck since late May, was seen with her at a concert venue in Italy over the weekend.
However, as reported by DailyMail, the woman is Depp’s new French teacher and her name is Mathilde Beltran, and their relationship is “strictly professional”. “She’s his French teacher and there’s no romantic connection whatsoever,” confirmed a source close to the star.
The 59-year-old actor has sparked rumors after he was spotted with the woman in Italy on multiple occasions over the weekend. Beltran who also happens to be an assistant director and producer from Paris was spotted alongside Depp while touring Europe with British musician Jeff Beck. Beltran is tasked with helping Depp improve his French for his role as King Louis XV to perfect in the upcoming film 'Jeanne du Barry', his first film since his dramatic court victory.

The two were last spotted together on Monday, July 18, arriving for a performance at the Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera. And just a day earlier, the couple could be seen at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, where he also played a set with Beck. Beltran has worked as “first assistant director” on a number of sets for several French short films IMDB although it is unclear if she’ll be directing or producing Depp’s new film alongside his French teacher.
The film tells the true story of a seamstress’ daughter who became the last mistress of King Louis XV in the 18th century and is expected to hit theaters in 2023. Depp will play Louis, along with Maiwenn Le Besco, who will both direct and play the main character, Jeanne du Barry, the king’s mistress. The role marks Depp’s return to the big screen after much of Hollywood reportedly blacklisted him following allegations of domestic violence from Heard.
The actor appeared to be in high spirits on Monday, July 18, as he arrived at the venue with his crew. He wore a casual gray T-shirt, belted beige cargo pants, and a black and white polka dot bandana. He also wore his signature accumulation of jewelry, including a hefty collection of layered necklaces and stacked bracelets. The star flaunted his impressive arm tattoos as he walked around the sound engineer ahead of the gig.
Beltran was seen not too far behind the actor. She was dressed casually in a red t-shirt, jeans and white sneakers and left her red tresses loose. The day before, the two further fueled rumors of a possible romance when they were spotted smiling and laughing as they arrived for rehearsal. A smiling Beltran was seen walking behind Depp, showing off her long legs in denim shorts and a green t-shirt. She was also seen carrying a backpack over her shoulder as she followed the actor into the venue.
