Depp set to give tell-all interview after marriage collapse

JOHNNY Depp is reportedly set to give a tell-all interview about his acrimonious split from Amber Heard.

The 52-year-old Hollywood star recently separated from the 30-year-old beauty amid allegations he verbally and physically abused her, but Johnny is apparently set to address those claims in a TV interview.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "He is shell-shocked over the events of the last week and is determined to tell his side of the story. His whole life has been turned upside down."

The report comes shortly after his estranged wife claimed Johnny abused her while high on drugs and alcohol.

The actress said: "I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assault to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.

"As Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship, so has my awareness of his continued substance abuse.

"Because of this, I am extremely afraid of Johnny and, for my safety, I am petrified he will return at any moment."

Meanwhile, Amber's neighbour Raquel Rose Pennington has given a deposition to support the allegations made against the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor.

She wrote to the court to allege he "slapped her hands away" when she broke up an argument between the former couple on May 21.

Writing in a document for court, Raquel said: "[I got a text message] asking me to come over to her condominium unit. When I opened the door, I saw Amber by the couch, covering her head with her arms and hands, as Johnny was loudly screaming at her.

"I ran over and stood in between Johnny and Amber, begging Johnny to stop yelling at her. I put my hands out in a defensive manner motioning him to stop. Johnny slapped my hands away and screamed foul obscenities at me."
