Johnny Depp has struggled with alcoholism and addiction for much of his life. He even said that he started using drugs by taking his mother’s nerve pills at the age of 11, was smoking at the age of 12 years old and by the age of 14 he’d used every kind of drug that there was.

And in a 1997 interview, Johnny Depp acknowledged past abuse of alcohol during the filming of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993), and in a 2008 interview, Johnny Depp stated that he’d poisoned himself with alcohol for years, but in 2013, Johnny Depp stated that he’d quit drinking alcohol, adding that he pretty much got everything he could out of it.

Johnny Depp also said that he investigated wine and spirits thoroughly, and they certainly investigated him as well and that they got along with each other beautifully, although maybe a little too well.

But when he split up with longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp said that he definitely wasn’t going to depend on the drink to relieve things or soften the blow or cushion the problem because that could have been disastrous.

However, according to his ex-wife, Amber Heard, Johnny Depp plunged into the depth of paranoia and violence after binging on drugs and alcohol during their relationship between 2013 and 2016, and in a 2018 Rolling Stone profile of Johnny Depp, reporter Stephen Rodrick wrote that he’d used hashish in his company and described him as alternately hilarious, sly and incoherent.

During his 2020 libel trial, Johnny Depp admitted to having been addicted to Roxicodone and alcohol as well as other substances such as MDMA and cocaine during his relationship with Amber Heard.

A High Court was shown a video of Johnny Depp smashing up a kitchen and tossing a wine bottle in an intoxicated frenzy at Amber Heard, whilst he tells her ‘You wanna see crazy? I’ll give you f—ing crazy’, but he denied ever hitting her.

We all know that alcohol can make us act in a way that we wouldn’t normally, including making us more angry or aggressive, and that alcohol can induce different emotional responses for different people.

Cocaine can also make you agitated, give you paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, and make you volatile. It can also induce suicidal and homicidal thinking, and other narcotics can cause similar effects.

We will never actually know whether Johnny Depp hit Amber Heard, or that his drug and alcohol consumption cause egomaniacal behaviour, but we do know that alcohol and drug use can cause these behaviours.

Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t but clearly, these two should have never been together in the first place. It’s just a case of he did that or she done this, and we will never truly get to the bottom of it, but clearly, the court didn’t believe Amber Heard, but generally, if there has been abuse in the relationship, abusers go onto abuse again.

Johnny Depp was seen in the clip trashing the kitchen, but not touching Amber Heard, but even so, this is not the behaviour of a rational person, something is indeed amiss.

We see all these glamorous couples smiling in magazines and we all feel a tad jealous, but you never know what goes on behind closed doors, and let’s face it, Johnny Depp hasn’t been that glamorous for at least two decades.

But whether he launched a bottle in the kitchen or anywhere else, it’s all destructive behaviour which develops over time, and sometimes what wasn’t acceptable to you a year ago becomes the norm, and of course, he didn’t start out like this, but as all his craziness goes on he will need to feel more and more in control, and once it starts it’s like a drug.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
