Things have gone from bad to worse in the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard saga and now two more high profile celebrities have been dragged into the mix. According to multiple reports, Depp has accused Heard of having affairs with Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum and more.
Speaking of celebrity marriages, hear about Kimye’s bid for world domination below:
In a written statement, obtained by E! News, Heard alleged, “[Depp] accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, Billy-Bob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelly Garner.”
“He also accused me of having affairs with stars I auditioned with, like Leonardo DiCaprio,” Heard wrote in her statement via E! News. “He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high – and had derogatory nicknames for every one of my male co-stars he considered a sexual threat.”
According to Heard, Depp would call Leonardo DiCaprio ‘pumpkin-head’, Channing Tatum ‘potato-head’ and Jim Sturgess ‘Jim Turd Sturgess’.
Describing Depp’s “controlling and isolating behaviour,” Heard said the actor would “try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn’t.”
The shocking claims are all part of Depp’s libel suit against British tabloid The Sun over a 2018 in which he was labelled a “wife beater.”
Over the previous nine days of the high profile court battle, the public has learned distressing details about the former couple’s relationship – including accusations that Amber Heard had defecated in Johnny Depp’s bed as a “prank”, allegations of James Franco’s involvement in their split, and claims that Heard ‘stole’ her story of sexual violence from her former assistant.
No word from any other the other names brought up, but a rep for Channing Tatum has responded to Heard’s statement, telling E! News it’s “complete nonsense and absolutely untrue.”
