Johnny Depp may be on his way to beating Kim Kardashian’s record for super-short celebrity marriage. In Touch Weekly reports that Depp and his recent bride, Amber Heard, are likely headed for divorce after only 62 days of marriage.
A source close to Depp and Heard told the magazine that their married life hasn’t been blissful since the wedding, which took place earlier this year. The source claims that the two movie stars are barely speaking to each other, and Depp’s love of drinking and partying is ruining their relationship.
“Amber is constantly worried about him,” the source told the magazine. “He’ll go days without calling or texting her.”
Amber, the source says, is constantly calling Depp while he’s on the set of Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in Australia.
“He’s constantly partying and it’s caused huge fights with Amber. It’s been hard for them,” the source continues.
It doesn’t help that they’re on opposite sides of the of the world right now, as Heard is on location in London shooting The Danish Girl.
Both Johnny and Amber have declined to comment on the state of their marriage. They got married just over two months ago in a private beach wedding in the Bahamas. Depp is in his early 50s while Amber is 28.
According to the Hollywood Gossip, rumors about Johnny Depp’s worsening drinking problem have been swirling around Hollywood for a couple of months now. In November of 2014, he gave what looked like a drunken acceptance speech at the Hollywood Film Awards. More recently, in March of this year, Depp failed to show up at a press conference after claiming that he was fighting a mythical beast.
Hopefully Depp can clean up his act long enough to complete filming of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment. The movie has already been plagued with problems since filming began. In March, production had to be interrupted due to an injury on Depp’s hand. This not only set back the $250 million film’s timeline, it also put hundreds of Australian workers on unpaid downtime.
What was originally expected to be a two-week delay turned into a month-long interruption when Johnny decided to return to Los Angeles for treatment. Filming is expected to resume on April 15. The film’s release date of July 7, 2017 is not expected to be pushed back because of this break in production.
Fingers crossed that we’ll see Johnny Depp and Amber Heard hand in hand on the red carpet at the premiere.
