OK, so they're together, but not like together together...
But -- and there's always a but -- the pair

This controversial case just keeps getting messier.
The conversation appeared to be between the eccentric actor's estranged wife and his assistant Stephen Deuters.
In the texts, Stephen supposedly acknowledged the A-lister's alleged attacks, even apologizing for his reportedly violent actions.
But now the 52-year-old's staffer is calling BS on those messages.
Stephen told TMZ that the screen grabs circling the web are totally doctored! In fact, he even insists that the Alice Through The Looking Glass star never once hit his ex, and wasn't ever violent towards anyone.
Johnny's employee told the tabloid that he also wasn't aware of any abusive acts his boss might've made towards his longtime love, and never claimed to — as the supposed texts imply.
He also feels it's fishy that the screenshots don't show any dates, and declared that he would testify under oath that he never talked about Mr. Depp's alleged violence with Amber.
What do U think about this, Perezcious readers?
