Johnny Depp has given his first public interview since the news of his upcoming divorce and the related allegations of abuse broke last month, but in the recent interview the actor failed to address both issues.
Appearing on the radio show Jonesy’s Jukebox on Sunday with his band the Hollywood Vampires, the 53-year-old spoke about music, the band’s European tour and how he accidentally ended up acting while trying to pursue a career in music.
He said: "I've [been a musician] since I was little – since I was 12 I've played."
"I started playing clubs when I was like 13 in Miami."
"I needed to pay rent…Somebody said, 'Why don't you go meet an agent. My agent is with Nick Cage.' So she sent me on an audition for something and I got it."
When his band broke up Depp continued to act because “it seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute”.
Earlier this week Johnny’s former finacé Winona Ryder became the latest high profile name to comment on the abuse allegations made against him by his current wife Amber Heard.
She insisted the Pirates of the Caribbean star was never abusive towards her during their three year relationship.
So far Amber has successfully been granted a temporary restraining order against Johnny.
The pair are due to appear in an LA court in mid-August to see if that restraining order will be enforced permanently.
