It’s been 11 months and 21 days since Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce was finalized after what felt like decades of tabloid drama. But sadly, just because they are no longer married doesn’t mean we’re free from hearing the most intimate details of their hideous relationship. Johnny is currently suing The Sun for defamation over an April 2008 story which called him a “wife-beater” (the original headline read “How can J.K. Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?”). As such, a 471-page deposition is being examined for proof that Johnny abused his wife. The poor clerk who has to work in the courthouse where their divorce records are stored has probably been waiting to take her lunch break since 2016. Can somebody please at least let a bitch step out for a sandwich! According to The Hollywood Reporter, we now know that the couple referred to Johnny as “The Monster” when he was in a mood, and Amber was afraid of him.

It’s a sad day for Keith Richards, for it would appear his 14-year-long spiritual biopic has finally come to an end. “But how do I die?” asks a crestfallen Keith. Oh Keith, you don’t die – you outlive us all. But one thing that has apparently been shoved into Hollywood’s morgue is Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
When Hollywood decides to reboot, remake, or revive an established money maker, they usually go back in time and pick something that was popular in the 80s or 90s. Disney, however, must be snorting the kind of pixie dust that gives them short term memory loss. Because just one year after the release of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie Dead Men Tell No Tales, Deadline is reporting that Disney is already in talks to reboot the franchise.
