According to Parade Magazine, Depp has been married two times, to Lori Anne Allison and Heard.
He was also in a 14-year relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children, although the couple never married, according to Parade.
“It wasn’t easy on [Paradis]. It wasn’t easy on me. It wasn’t easy on the kids. It doesn’t stop the fact that you care for that person, and they’re the mother of your kids, and you’ll always know each other, and you’re always gonna be in each other’s lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it,” Depp said of the split, according to Prade.
Heard met Depp in 2009 while filming “The Rum Diary,” when he was still with Paradis.
His first wife, Lori Anne Allison, was older then him and was the sister of a bassist in Depp’s band. They married in 1983 in Florida, Parade reported. According to TMZ, after Heard’s allegations went public, Allison defended Depp, saying he had never raised a hand to her. They divorced in 1985, according to TMZ.
Depp had many high-profile girlfriends over the years, including Winona Ryder, kate Moss, Sherilyn Fenn, and Jennifer Grey, according to Parade. According to the Mirror, Ryder, to whom he was previously engaged, defended him during his UK libel trial against Heard, telling the court, “The idea that he is an incredibly violent person is the farthest thing from the Johnny I knew and loved. I cannot wrap my head around these accusations.”
