It’s been nothing but rocky seas the last few months for Johnny Depp and the upcoming installment of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, called Dead Men Tell No Tales!
First, the 51-year-old actor injured his hand during filming, and had to fly back to the U.S. for surgery.
Now, to top it all off, there’s a new report out stating that Depp abandoned ship on the Gold Coast right in the middle of filming, leaving cast and crew high and dry as he rushed back to the states to salvage his marriage!
Sources spilled the tea to the Brisbane Times that Depp jumped ship down under on Wednesday night to hustle back to America on a charter flight and be by Amber’s side.
To Depp’s credit, his publicist Michael Singer vigorously denied the report, telling news outlets all hands were still on deck at the filming location:
“I can’t go into detail on our filming schedules or the movements of individuals but I can tell you that nothing in that report has any relation to reality. Mr. Depp has been filming on schedule. It’s business as usual with all participants working.”
For the film and the marriage’s sake, let’s hope that’s all true!
And whatever’s going on with Depp and Heard, here’s to them navigating the tempest and coming out stronger for it!
