‘I felt really bad for him’


Celebrities


Johnny Depp’s first wife Lori Allison had some stern words about actress Amber Heard a year on from the pair’s highly publicized defamation trial.

Allison wed the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor in 1983 when she was 25 and he was 20, but the pair divorced just two years later citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Appearing on the “Popcorned Planet” podcast, the 65-year-old was asked to give her take on the 36-year-old actress.

Referring to Heard as “she who shall not be named” throughout her interview, Allison recalled really liking the “Aquaman” actress at the start of her romance with Depp.

“I had met her before, I’d been to parties at his house,” Allison recalled. “She seemed really nice and she was gorgeous, and what’s not to love?

“But as the time went by and I would hear things about her – she who shall not be named – he didn’t seem too happy all the time. I didn’t see him a lot so I can’t really say.”

“The things that affected me more were the things he said in court. I probably broke down several times because I felt really bad for him,” she added.

Calling her ex-husband “very private,” Allison said it was the right decision for Depp to “come out so wholeheartedly” in the defamation case.

“I thought it was either going to be an epic train wreck or it was going to go really well,” she added.

The former make-up artist said she would reach out to Depp’s pals from time to time to get updates on how the court case was going.

She added that sometimes, she would even “walk around crying because I was terrified for him.”

“I think it would’ve killed him, well maybe not, but it just broke my heart that somebody could do that to him,” she said of Heard.

“I’m no angel, I’ve done my share of s–tty things to people, but what she did was absolutely horrific, and if there were things that I could do to her that were legal, I would do them! I would.”

Heard was ordered to pay Depp more than $10 million in compensatory damages plus $350,000 in punitive damages for defaming him in a 2018 op-ed piece she wrote for the Washington Post.

The Post has reached out to Heard’s reps for comment.

Depp was awarded more than $10 million in damages after a jury determined that Heard had harmed his reputation with her allegations of domestic abuse.

Soon after, she sold her California home in an effort to pay off her debts. Prior to her time in Spain, Heard spent time in the Hamptons and Israel with her friends and daughter. 

Heard has since asked the judge to toss the jury’s verdict. She claims that the judgment wasn’t supported by evidence.

For his part, Depp, who was in the UK when the verdict came down, said in a statement: “The jury gave me my life back.”
