Why did Lily-Rose skip papa Johnny Depp's wedding with Amber Heard? The SHOCKING truth
Depp told that he is going to reveal the truth for the benefit of his children, Lily-Rose Depp and Jack Depp.
Johnny Depp, 58, has revealed some surprising details about his marriage to Amber Heard, 35, and how it affected his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. The actor testified in his defamation trial against his now-ex-wife Heard on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, and revealed that she and his 22-year-old actress daughter, whom he shares with former wife Vanessa Paradis, did not get along. Paradis and Depp also have a son, Jack Depp.
Depp and Heard married in an intimate ceremony on his private island in the Bahamas in February 2015. Depp recalled that Lily-Rose Depp skipped the nuptials, which had about 20 to 25 people in attendance. During the defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia, Depp said, "My daughter Lily-Rose did not come to the wedding. She and Ms. Heard were not on particularly great terms, for several reasons."
Drug-fueled wedding celebration
He also told the court that Heard and her "gang" of friends guzzled drugs from a "communal bag of MDMA," at their wedding reception, and that there was a schedule for the day's events that read, "Dinner, dancing and drugs." Meanwhile, Depp smoked marijuana, which he described as his "drug of choice." Depp went on to say that he and Amber Heard didn't have a prenuptial agreement when they married, and that subsequent discussions about getting one led to disagreements.
Depp opened up about his children
Depp said he is suing Heard, 35, for defamation because his "goal is the truth" and he wants to "clear the record" of the allegations made against him. "Since I knew there was no truth to it whatsoever," he said of Heard's abuse allegations, "I felt it was my responsibility to stand up not only for myself in that instance, but also for my children, who at the time were 14 and 16." But why did Depp stay with Heard for so long despite her behavior?
Depp reveals his father’s influence
Depp revealed that despite their disagreements, he stayed in his marriage with Heard "because my father stayed [in his abusive marriage]... And I didn't want to fail. I wanted to try to make it work. I thought maybe I could help her. I thought maybe I could bring her around. Because the Amber Heard that I knew for the first year, year and a half was not this, suddenly this opponent. It wasn't my girl, she had become my opponent."
Where is current legal battle headed?
Depp is suing Heard for defamation over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018 about 'surviving domestic violence,' even though she never mentioned Depp by name. Depp, who filed the $50 million lawsuit, has opted to take the stand and is revealing hereto unknown details about his relationship with Amber Heard in his testimony.
His ex-wife Heard has yet to take the stand but her attorney, Ben Rottenborn, said during opening statements last week that evidence will show she was subjected to domestic abuse by Depp that "took many forms," including physical, emotional, verbal, and psychological abuse, as well as "sexual violence at the hands of Depp." The allegations are said to be "fictitious," according to a Depp spokesperson.
