Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have officially called it quits! And the reason for their shocking divorce may all stem from the actor’s family’s deep ‘hatred’ for Amber. In fact, reports claim there was MAJOR tension between Amber and Johnny’s mom!
Yikes! Johnny Depp, 52, and Amber Heard‘s, 30, divorce is even MORE dramatic than we originally thought! Apparently Johnny’s relatives — his own mother and children no less — are to blame for the star’s shocking split from his wife! And now, with Johnny’s $400 million fortune on the line, this mess is about to get even UGLIER!
Amber and Johnny’s relationship was on the rocks for quite some time since tying the knot in February 2015. And apparently Johnny’s family was NOT helping the situation — in fact, according to TMZ, Johnny’s late mom and his two children made matters MUCH worse for the already-shaky couple.
The actors reportedly had an “extremely bitter” relationship because of an ongoing feud between Amber and Johnny’s mom, Betty Sue Palmer, especially. Sources have even alleged that Johnny’s two teenage children and two sisters, in addition to his mother, “hated” Amber and would openly discuss it between themselves.
Betty Sue allegedly believe that Amber “treated [Johnny] like crap” and that she was using her son for his money and to further her own career. Yikes! “The tension was palpable,” the media outlet reported. “We’re also told that, before Betty Sue moved in [to the LA compound Johnny and Amber shared], she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber.”
But even more wild, insiders have even claimed that Betty Sue completely believed that Amber was a “terrible person,” and she had branded her as such. Talk about family drama! Apparently Amber was all about having “full control” and she made sure to keep Johnny and Betty Sue apart. But of course that did not go over well, as the hunky actor and his mother were very close — he even had her name tattooed on his arm!
And now, after Amber officially filed for divorce from Johnny on May 23 — just three days after Betty Sue’s death — the actress is citing that Johnny’s family’s hatred for her is one of the reasons that she wants out. Even worse, Amber is seeking spousal support from Johnny, who is worth a whopping $400 million dollars and owns a private island in the Bahamas. And no, the two did NOT have a pre-nuptial agreement in place!
Considering Johnny lost his beloved mother less than one week ago AND his wife, who’s also after his estate, just filed for divorce, it’s pretty safe to say that Johnny has been having an extremely rough go of it lately. We truly wish the best for Johnny and his family and hope everything gets sorted out quickly!
