JK Rowling faced criticism this week after defending the choice to cast Johnny Depp in the upcoming film The Crimes of Grindelwald.

The film, a spin-off from the iconic Harry Potter series, will feature Depp as the leading character. 

Depp was accused of domestic violence and abuse by his ex-partner Amber Heard during their divorce proceedings. Rowling released a statement on her website to say:

'The huge, mutually supportive community that has grown up around Harry Potter is one of the greatest joys of my life.'

'For me personally, the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been difficult, frustrating and at times painful.'

'However, the agreements that have been put in place to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed a desire to get on with their lives, must be respected.' 

'Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.'

Rowling's statement was met with massive disappointment from fans. 

Many accused her of hypocrisy, after penning a famous novel series about an abused boy to then defend someone who is an alleged domestic abuser.

Amber herself has accused the author of taking her statement following her 2016 divorce from Depp out of context. 

'To pick and choose certain lines and quote them out of context, is just not right,' she posted to Instagram.

'Women, continue to stand up and stay strong.'



Johnny Depp dropped into Disneyland, California this week, kitted out in a full Captain Jack Sparrow costume.

He surprised visitors to the theme-park on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride that inspired the hit movie franchise

The star appeared with sword in hand and greeted fans in his character's signature English twang.

Johnny Depp has been in the dog house with fans after allegations from now ex-wife Amber Rose that Johnny was the perpetrator of domestic violence towards her. 

However, the tide is clearly turning back in favour of the actor as he accepted a People's Choice Award for Favourite Movie Icon last night.

The star was noticeably humble in has acceptance as he thanked fans for the honour. 

"I appreciate it very much, you have no idea how much I appreciate it" he told the crowd.

"I truly feel that need to thank you," he said. 

The star also made reference to the fans who stood by him "through whatever good times or bad," seemingly referencing the allegations from his ex.

But not everyone believes that the star should be forgiven in the eyes of the public so soon. 

"Johnny Depp deserves to be in prison and y'all stay giving him awards."

"Abusers gonna abuse. Congrats on enabling that," said one outraged ex-fan.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard just finalised their divorce mere days ago.

The pair settled their divorce and her domestic violence case with a $7 million dollar settlement. 

Amber plans to split the settlement and donate it to the American Civil Liberties Union, who work to prevent violence against women, and the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.



Amber Heard tearfully discussed the details of her experiences with domestic violence in a powerful video that has since disappeared from the internet.

The video showed the actress emotionally recalling how she felt during the alleged abuse at the hands of her now ex-husband Johnny Depp.

She settled her divorce with Johnny Depp earlier this year after claiming that the actor was "verbally and physically abusive."

In the video, Amber recalls her feelings of shame during the alleged abuse.

"'I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that, the label of victim."

"It happens to so many women you know. When it happens in your home behind closed doors with someone you love, it’s not straightforward. If a stranger did this it would be a no-brainer,'" she said in the video, which was uploaded by the Girl Gaze Project.

The model said that the only way we can start to move forward in preventing domestic violence is if women will come forward.

"You don't have to do it alone. You're not alone, and we can change this."

"Speak up, speak up. Raise your voice, your voice is the most powerful thing and we, together, as women standing shoulder to shoulder cannot and will not any longer accept silence."

The video was released on Friday to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Towards Women.

In a strange turn of events, the video has now been set to private, and a corresponding Facebook post to promote the "public service announcement" has also been erased. 



Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hasn't even hit the cinema yet, but an announcement has already been made for the upcoming sequel.

According to Deadline, Johnny Depp is joining Eddie Redmayne and the cast for the second installment of the movie.

Johnny's exact role remains top-secret for now, but it has been reported that we'll see a small glimpse of him in the first movie.

For those not up to date, Fantastic Beasts is a tale about the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

The first movie hits cinemas at the end of this month.



If anyone knows what it's like to go through a high-profile separation, it's Johnny Depp.

And now the actor, whose split from Amber Heard made headlines all over the world, has been offering advice to Angelina Jolie in the aftermath of her divorce announcement last Tuesday.

The stars, who performed opposite each other in The Tourist back in 2010, have kept in close contact, and it looks like Angelina has put a lot of trust in the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

"Angelina idolised Johnny for years before she worked with him on The Tourist, and then the pair of them really hit it off on set," a source told The Sun.

According to insiders, Johnny sought solace in their friendship during his media storm earlier this year, and is keen to advise Angelina during this time.

"The two of them have stayed in touch ever since then, and spoke regularly during the storm that surrounded Johnny’s break up with Amber."

The Maleficent actress turned to the actor's attorney in recent weeks, with the source adding: "They have been speaking about the situation, and Angelina hired Johnny’s lawyer to represent her based on the advice that he has given her."

The news will surely come as a blow to Brad who is reportedly holding out hope for a reconciliation, with a source close to the former couple revealing:"It's a very tricky time for the family but Brad hasn't given up hope yet."



The Johnny Depp divorce saga is never ending, with new information surfacing all the time. 

Well, one of Johnny's old pals has weighed in on the matter, and it is not what you expect. 

Marilyn Manson, who happens to be Lily Rose Depp's Godfather, has spoken out about how Johnny has been mistreated.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, the rocker said that "Johnny is one of the nicest people that I know. I know that he was completely crucified—unjustly."

Marilyn got really honest about his feelings towards his pal's divorce.

"I would stand by him on anything. As my friend, I know that he's handling it the best he can and he's a great Dad, too."

The Tainted Love singer also claimed that the abuse allegations made by Amber heard were not true, and he would be willing to testify. 

"Of course I think that all of it was bullshit, and I think that he is a great person. I wouldn't agree with any of it if someone were to put me on the stand and ask me what I know, or what I've witnessed."

Who knew these two were such close friends?

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were married back in 2015, having been dating for three years.

Amber filed for divorce earlier this year, after a number of domestic abuse allegations were made against Johnny. 




Just when we thought it was all over and done with, Amber Heard has fired back at Johnny after he donated money to charity in Amber's name, and as well as that, she apparently wants her ex-hubby to give $14m away rather than the agreed $7m.

According to TMZ, Amber's team said that Johnny is not being truthful about his latest move because he will get a charitable tax deduction when he donates the moola to ACLU and the Children's Hospital of LA.

Amber's people told the gossip site: "If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honour the full amount by donating $14m to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber.

"We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years," they added.

It doesn't seem like this is going to end anytime soon!


Earlier this month it was announced that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp had officially ended their high-profile divorce case with a $7 million settlement being awarded to the Texan actress.

And while most people would take the money and try to move on from months of courtroom drama, Amber admirably made the decision to donate the entire sum to two charities of her choice: The American Civil Liberties Union and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, her now ex-husband Johnny is “heaping praise” on the Rum Diary actress for deciding to donate the sum, and has already sent cheques to both organisations on Amber’s behalf to begin the process which will eventually see each group receive $3.5 million.

A rep for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor told TMZ: “Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple instalments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honour the full amount of Ms Heard's pledge.”

“Ms Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected,” they continued.

The news comes after months of allegations during which Amber had a restraining order issued against Johnny – which has now been dropped – and claimed that the Golden Globe winner had domestically abused her.

When filing for divorce the 30-year-old model stated “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for wanting to end her 15-month marriage.

After months of endless speculation and recrimination, the divorce case between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has come to an official end.

According to reports emerging from the States, the actress chose to settle with Depp thereby bringing the high-profile case to a close.

TMZ reports that Amber 'settled the case with prejudice' which means the actress can never re-file against the Pirates of the Caribbean star, and she has, in addition to this, dropped the restraining order she had issued against him.

Releasing a statement in the aftermath of today's decision, the former couple said: "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love."

"There was never an intent of physical or emotional harm," it continued.

"Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity," it concluded.


WARNING: some users may find the below images distressing 


In the latest twist in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's divorce saga, it is now being claimed that the Oscar-nominated actor dramatically cut his finger… and proceeded to write in blood on the wall. 

In an exclusive for TMZ, the website says it has seen court documents which detail the shocking incident. 

Seemingly, Mr Depp accused his 30-year-old wife of having an affair with Billy Bob Thornton. Flying into a rage, he accidently cut a chunk off the top of his finger. 

The 53-year-old then dipped his injured hand into blue paint – subsequently writing Mr Thornton's name on a nearby wall in a mixture of paint and blood. 

TMZ adds that the incident happened in March of last year, shortly after the couple married. 

"According to Amber's version of events Johnny, who was drunk and high on ecstasy, smashed several bottles and windows and also slammed a plastic phone against the wall unit," TMZ explains.

"She claims a piece of one of the items cut off a portion of his forefinger.

"Amber's version goes on… she's a painter and had dark blue paint in the room.

"She claims Johnny dipped what remained of his forefinger in the paint and then used the gnarly digit to write various words on the wall, including 'Billy Bob' and 'Easy Amber.'"

Billy Bob and Amber were filming together at the time – and she says Johnny accused her of affairs with other co-stars during their 14-month marriage.

Over the weekend, footage emerged of Mr Depp flying into a rage in Ms Heard's presence. 


Video footage of a out-of-control Johnny Depp has now emerged – with the actor seen throwing a wine bottle and a glass months before Amber Heard filed for divorce.

In shocking footage – filmed prior to the May 21 incident in which Amber claims Mr Depp struck her – the duo can be seen in their kitchen.

Obtained by TMZ and seemingly filmed by Amber herself, she can be heard asking Johnny if he drank a bottle of wine as she tries to calm him down.

The footage begins with 53-year-old Johnny shouting "mother f**ker; mother f**ker," as his now-estranger wife asks him what happened. 

The 30-year-old actress furthermore says she is sorry for something – although she doesn't specify what she did.   

And after throwing a glass and wine bottle across the room, he seemingly becomes aware that she is filming their tense conversation – making a swipe at Amber's phone, trying to get it from her.

Johnny's people are now claiming that the content is a "set up," and is "heavily edited." The also claim that there are portions where Amber is seen smiling and egging him on. 

The pair – who met on the set of 2011 film The Rum Diary and were married for just 15 months – split in May.
