How many times has Johnny Depp been married?

Johnny Depp’s personal life has become a tabloid topic in recent years. In June, the actor was crowned the winner of a high-profile defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. In the case, the Pirates of the Caribbean star sued Heard after she wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post recalling alleged abuse by an unnamed ex. As a result of the trial, Depp was awarded $10.35 million in damages, per TMZ.

Heard’s legal team has since appealed, suggesting in a statement to USA Today that the “Aquaman” actor was denied a fair trial. “We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair trial consistent with the First Amendment,” the statement said. It continued: “We are aware that today’s submission will ignite the Twitter bonfires. There are steps we must take to ensure both fairness and justice.”

And while Depp’s relationship with Heard may be one of his most turbulent yet, the actor has been married before.

Johnny Depp was married to Lori Anne Allison

Johnny Depp has a turbulent love life as the actor has previously been linked to ’90s stars such as Kate Moss and Winona Ryder. However, long before Depp’s acting career took off, he was married to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison. According to the Mirror, the couple married in a small ceremony in 1983 before moving to California. According to the outlet, Allison helped Depp get his first big break after introducing him to Nicolas Cage.

In a 2004 interview with Playboy, Depp explained how the chance meeting led to his starring role in Nightmare on Elm Street. “I was literally filling out applications at the same time, every type of job,” Depp said. “Nic Cage said, ‘You should try to be an actor. Maybe you are and don’t know it.’” Since then, Depp has been a prominent figure in Hollywood.

However, as Depp’s career took off, his marriage unraveled and he separated from Allison in 1985. Despite the end of their romantic relationship, the pair appeared to have maintained a healthy friendship over the years. Allison even came to Depp’s defense in 2016 after Amber Heard made initial allegations of abuse. She told TMZ that the actor is a “soft person” and never showed any signs of aggression during their marriage.

Depp was also in a relationship with French singer Vanessa Paradis from 1998 to 2002 (per Page Six). They have two children together, Lilly-Rose and Jack, but never tied the knot.

Johnny Depp’s marriage to Amber Heard was also brief

Although it seems like the saga between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard lasted a lifetime, the couple’s romantic relationship was a lot shorter than some might expect. During her messy libel trial, Depp recalled meeting his ex-wife on the set of their 2011 film The Rum Diary. “I think there was something about that kiss in the shower that was real,” Depp testified. He further explained that the couple only started their romantic endeavor some time later as both were involved in other relationships at the time.

Depp has previously opened up about his once happy romance with Heard. At the 2013 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the actor revealed that he realized he had fallen in love with Heard when they began the film’s press tour. “We tracked each other down. Actually, by the way, it was amazing,” he said (via People). The couple eventually split from their respective partners and went public with their relationship. Depp and Heard married in 2015 but divorced almost two years later.
