Depp is all set to make a comeback to the movie screen later this year as he plays the role of Grindelwald in Harry Potter spin-off, 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'. The author of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling has had to defend her decision to cast Depp given his past few rocky years. 

The statement read, "Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies."

Depp was seen earlier in the week in Moscow with a pair of sunglasses and a hat posing at the State Museum of Mayakovsky in Moscow. The photograph also provoked a lot of concern with people calling him "sick" and "weak". Depp left a message in a visitor book and the thrilled museum shared the note.

Last fall a video obtained by TMZ was released which showed Depp being both physically and verbally abusive.

Depp can be heard saying, "Did something happen to you this morning? I don't think so!" before smashing a wine bottle and saying, "You want to see crazy, I'll give you fucking crazy."

Two of Johnny Depp's former bodyguards filed a lawsuit against the 54-year-old actor for many alleged offenses, including unpaid wages, overtime, wrongful and unlawful business practices.

As reported by E!News, according to court documents the guards claimed, "exposed to unsafe working conditions and essentially used as babysitters and chauffeurs for Depp, his children, and his entourage."
