Johnny Depp split from his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis because she was ”a bitch” to his family.
The Mortdecai actor – who wed his second wife, model Amber Heard in Los Angeles on Tuesday – is reported to have called time on his relationship with the singer and actress after 14 years in 2012 because of her attitude towards his siblings and mother, according to his nephew, Billy Rassel’s former spouse, Heather.
The sandwich shop manager – who is in the middle of a bitter divorce with Billy – explained: ”I don’t like Vanessa. She would act a certain way in front of Johnny but would change totally as soon as he would leave – I’m sorry but she was a total bitch. His mom Betty would never complain to Johnny about Vanessa or to her face. She was always polite, nice and cordial to her but to us she was a lot more honest. It’s what ended their relationship. I think her family took advantage of Johnny, too.”
Heather claims the 51-year-old actor – who is planning a second round of lavish nuptials for he and Amber on his private island in the Bahamas this weekend – has been forced to remain close to Vanessa, 42, for the sake of their children, Lily-Rose, 15, and Jack, 12. She told The Sun: ”Johnny needs a good relationship with Vanessa because of the children. He had to try and juggle his mom and his wife.”
