Johnny Depp Reportedly Texted Marilyn Manson About Amber Heard’s ‘Sociopathic Behavior’
Johnny Depp allegedly texted Marilyn Manson about Amber Heard, and what he wrote matches what the Aquaman the star’s attorney opened up about Depp’s friendship with the shock rocker. Here’s what the actor allegedly sent Manson and what Heard’s attorney said about the two men.
Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson have been friends for years
Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp have been friends for years, ever since the ‘Sweet Dreams’ singer appeared on Depp’s TV show in 1987 21 jump street (by Nicki Swift). Manson has attended the actor’s film premieres, and Depp has performed with the musician onstage at his concerts.
Manson is even godfather to the actor’s daughter, model Lily-Rose Depp. Manson is the godfather of Pirates of the Caribbean the star’s daughter, Lily-Rose. Both men got matching tattoos, which Manson described to rolling stone like a work of art with “Charles Baudelaire, the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton” on their backs and the words “without reason” on their wrists. Depp even gifted Manson a house once after the musician mentioned it was nicer than the house he bought a week before.
Fans have pointed out troubling similarities between Depp and Manson. Amber Heard has accused Depp of sexual assault and other physical abuse. And in February 2021, Evan Rachel Wood accused Manson, her former partner, of sexual abuse.
Johnny Depp texted Marilyn Manson about Amber Heard
Over the weekend, thousands of pages of documents relating to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case were unsealed. Among the documents were text messages exchanged between Marilyn Manson and Depp, in which the actor mentioned Heard’s “sociopathic behavior”.
In a 2016 text, Manson allegedly wrote (according to The New York Post), “I have an amber 2.0” and “Lindsay just fired an amber…please delete”
Depp reportedly replied, “I’ve read a LOT of material about this and sociopathic behavior…it’s fucking true bro!! My ex-c*** is a fucking SCHOOL!!!”
Then Manson, appearing to refer to a 2016 incident where police were called to Depp and Heard’s Los Angeles apartment, wrote, “I had a serious police amber type scenario with the family of L. I’m fucking stressed. I don’t know if you’re back but I need asylum somewhere because I think the cops might be heading my way.
Amber Heard’s attorney claims the pair used drugs together
During the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard libel case, the Aquaman The star’s attorney asked Depp about his drug-fueled friendship with Marilyn Manson.
Weekly entertainment reported in April that Heard’s attorney, Ben Rottenborn, interviewed the actor about recreational substance use with the musician. Depp said, “Yeah, we drank together and we drank cocaine together maybe a few times.”
Rottenborn insisted, “Pills, right, with Marilyn Manson?”
Depp replied, “Uh, I once gave Marilyn Manson a pill to stop him talking so much,” sparking laughter among some onlookers at the trial.
The attorney also presented text messages between Manson and Depp from September 2012 to illustrate the actor’s heavy drinking and drug use.
“I use marijuana…a lot!!!” read a text message from Depp. “The pill and the plants keep me calm and detached.”
