Fame Background

He was born to guardians John and Betty Sue Depp. Depp's father worked as a structural architect and his mom worked as a server and homemaker. The most youthful of four children, Depp was introverted and a self-proclaimed weirdo. In an interview with the LA Times, Depp spoke about how he used to confuse his parents, "I made odd noises as a child. Just did weird things, like turn off light switches twice. I think my parents thought I had Tourette's syndrome. Puberty was very vague. I literally locked myself in a room and played guitar.""

Johnny and his family moved every now and again to oblige his father's work. They arrived in Miramar, Florida, when Johnny was 7 years of age. The family lived in a motel for almost a year, until his father got a new line of work. Depp detested his new home and, by the age of 12 he started smoking and exploring different avenues regarding drugs.

The two started dating and before long turned into a Hollywood power couple. Five months after their first great date, Depp and Ryder ended up getting engaged. To cement their adoration for each other, Depp even had "Winona Forever" inked on his arm. The couple split in 1993 after Ryder's folks disallowed their little girl to get married so young.

While taping the science fiction drama The Ninth Gate (1999) in France, Johnny met the pretty French actress, singer and model Vanessa Paradis.

The couple got engaged to each other on Christmas Eve in 2013 and got married in February 2015. Heard petitioned for legal separation in May 2016 with claims that Depp had been verbally and physically damaging to her life.
