Johnny Depp Opens Up About Drugs, Debt, Divorce In Bonkers Interview

What's the trouble with Johnny Depp?

It's a question that fans and former fans have been asking for the past two years.

It's also the intriguing title of a new Rolling Stone piece that purports to offer some answers.

Journalist David Rodrick spent three days — well, nights, as Depp keeps vampire hours — hanging out with the increasingly controversial actor, and it seems there was no topic that wasn't up for discussion.

Depp's massive debt and recent legal battles, his ugly divorce from Amber Heard, and his prodigious appetite for inebriants were all addressed in a wide-ranging conversation that helped to shed some light on Depp's demons.

Is this Johnny showing the world his vulnerable side?

Or have we all just been taken in by a man who's made a very nice living off his ability to manipulate the emotions of others by transforming himself?

Decide for yourself with this list of the most bonkers revelations from Johnny's most candid interview to date.

1. One Mean Mom

“My mom was maybe the meanest human being I have ever met in my life,” Depp tells Rodrick at one point, adding that his mother often struck her and hurled objects at them.

2. A Traumatic Childhood

“There were irrational beatings,” says Depp. “Maybe it’s an ashtray coming your way. Maybe you’re gonna get clunked with the phone.”

3. A Complex Relationship

“She could be a real bitch on wheels,” Depp says of his mother, before noting that his first major purchase after gaining fame was a house for the woman who raised him.

4. An Attempt to Deflect?

Many have interpreted Depp’s comments about his enduring love of his mother despite the abuse she inflicted as an effort to deflect allegations that he was abusive to his former wife, Amber Heard.

5. "Slim" to "Scum"

Depp signed a non-disclosure agreement that prohibits him from talking about Heard — but Rodrick notes that a tattoo on Johnny’s hand that used to feature Heard’s nickname, Slim, has been altered to read, “Scum.”

6. Speaking of Abused Women…

Depp goes on to comment on the #MeToo movement and the accusations against “goliath Shrek thing” Harvey Weinstein. He’s no fan of Harvey, but his remarks aren’t exactly in perfect alignment with contemporary feminism, either.

Kate Spade: Drugs Found at Scene of Suicide, But…

We have an update on the tragic death of Kate Spade.

As previously reported, the iconic fashion designer was found dead on June 5 inside her Manhattan apartment.

The cause of death has been ruled a suicide by hanging.

Since this awful news went public, celebrities from across various industries have sent their condolences to Spade’s loved ones, while also expressing their shock and sadness over this development.

Spade was only 55 years old at the time of her death.

Now, TMZ has posted an update on the situation, writing on Thursday morning that drugs were found at the scene of Spade’s suicide.

But there’s a pretty big catch to this detail:

The drugs were not illegal.

According to law enforcement, officers looking through Spade’s Park Avenue residence instead came across the anxiety pills, which were prescribed to the designer.

It’s not even clear at the moment whether or not Spade has any of these meds in her system at the time of her passing.

Previously, Spade’s sister had come out and said her famous sibling had been battling Depression and/or other forms of mental health disease in the years and months leading up to her hanging.

We cannot say for certain if she was ever diagnosed officially, however.

Other insiders have said that Kate’s state of mind took a turn for the much worse after she and her long-time husband, Andy, went through a very difficult period in their marriage last year.

Andy has said in a lengthy statement that he and Kate were separated, but would occasionally dine together or spend time together for the sake of their 13-year old daughter.

This is what Andy Spade said in his emotional response to his estranged wife’s suicide:

Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years”My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her.

We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already…

Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives…

Our daughter was our priority.

We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how…

My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.

Spade allegedly left a suicide note that singled out her child and emphasized how much Bea meant to her.

This is just tragic all around.

Kate’s funeral is being held Thursday in Kansas City, Missouri, where she was born and raised.

We continue to send our thoughts to her loved ones and we hope Kate Spade is resting in peace.

Here is a look at other celebrities who have also died in 2018, including a few prominent ones who also killed themselves. RIP to all.


Avicii Cause of Death Update: Drugs Found Near Late DJ’s Body

Last week, the music world was rocked by the news that world-renowned hitmaker Avicii had passed away at the age of 28.

Rumors about Avicii’s cause of death began to circulate almost immediately, with several outlets reporting that his unexpected passing was the result of lingering health issues resulting from a lifelong struggle with alcoholism.

Now, however, there’s reason to believe that may not have been the case.

Earlier today, the family of the late artist – whose real name was Tim Bergling – issued a statement in which they implied that Avicii may have taken his own life.

Now, an official close to the investigation has revealed that drugs were found at the scene of Bergling’s death.

“I do know drugs were found on the scene,” a spokesperson at the Muscat Governorate Police Headquarters tells Radar Online.

Avicii’s lifeless body was found in the city of Muscat, Oman, but little is known about the condition in which it was found, or why the DJ had traveled to the country.

The statement published today by his family does not explicitly state that Avicii committed suicide, but it suggests that he was crippled by his struggles with anxiety and depression in the weeks before his death.

“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions,” the statement reads.

“An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.”

The statement references Avicii’s decision to retire from touring in order to focus on his health following a pancreatitis diagnosis:

“When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music,” the family writes.

“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace,” the statement continued.

“Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.

“Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.We love you, Your family.”

We will have additional updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Kailyn Lowry Blasts Jenelle Evans: Is She on Drugs?!

Another day, another round of ridiculous Teen Mom 2 drama.

The latest beef between Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans began with yet another ignorant-ass social media comment from David Eason.

And it doesn't look like the bad blood will be letting up anytime soon.

The short version is: David mom-shamed Leah Messer; Kail defended her friend; Jenelle defended her husband, and all hell broke loose.

The longer, more popcorn-worthy version is this:

1. Better Days

Believe it or not, there was a time when Kailyn and Jenelle actually got along. In fact, Kail once bailed Jenelle out of jail! They were simpler times…

2. Those Days Are Done

These days, Jenelle and Kailyn seem to flat-out hate each other, to the point that Evans has been accused of threatening her former friend with physical violence. And their current feud just keeps getting uglier.

3. The Offending Photo

It all started when Leah Messer posted this photo on her Instagram page. Seems innocent enough, right? Well, apparently Creepy Dave Eason didn’t see it that way.

4. David’s Two Cents

In a comment posted on Leah’s Instagram page, Eason stated that he feels her daughter is wearing too much makeup. He adds that Leah should have asked permission from the girl’s father before allowing her to leave the house looking that way.

5. WTF, David?!

Leah was understandably taken aback by Eason’s comment, and she let him know as much. “Why are you even commenting on my post?” she replied.

6. Jenelle Claps Back

In a truly bizarre Instagram story, Jenelle tore into Leah for taking issue with David’s comments. Evans seemed unhinged in the footage, and fans were quick to point out that her argument was riddled with holes…

Scheana Marie Explains Rob Valletta Obsession: I Was on Drugs!

If you’ve been watching Vanderpump Rules this season, then you may be under the impression that Scheana Marie has had one thing and one thing only on her mind.

We’re talking, of course, about Rob Valletta and his uncanny ability to count a TV on the wall in 7 minutes flat.

Scheana’s obsession with Rob has reached the level where some fans are genuinely concerned about her mental health.

But despite all appearances to the contrary if you scanned Scheana’s brain, the monitor wouldn’t show an endless loop of shirtless Rob securely attaching a 32-inch Samsung above a fireplace.

No there would also be interludes in which Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson hang on Scheana’s repeat the same boring-ass anecdotes ad nauseum.

You see, Scheana isn’t just obsessed with Rob; she’s also obsessed with the devil’s lettuce.

And she says the reason she’s prattled on about Rob literally every freakin’ time she’s been on camera this season is that her weed-addled brain simply can’t keep track of which stories she’s already told.

Appearing on Heather McDonald’s podcast this week, Scheana responded to the inevitable question of why she was perpetually unable to up shut about Rob, despite the fact that her friends weren’t even pretending to be interested in what she had to say.

“I watch it and I just want to reach in the TV, grab Scheana on Vanderpump Rules and strangle her and be like ‘Shut up!’” joked Scheana.

“Here’s my excuse. Look y’all, I smoke a lot of weed. I tend to repeat myself a lot.  I forget things a lot. And I think I was just so impressed by him that I just kept saying it over and over again.”

Here’s the thing:

We appreciate that the cast of Vanderpump is showing their progressive side by openly talking about their love for the jazz cabbage, but Scheana blaming her stalker mentality on too much THC is quite lame.

These days, Rob and Scheana are broken up, and while she says she’s still holding out hope for a reconciliation (of course), she’s also finally willing to discuss the specifics  of their split.

And naturally, she blames the whole thing on her castmates.

As you may recall, one of the first dust-ups of this drama packed season had to do with allegations that Rob cheated on Scheana with a random hostess.

While he denied the accusations and she believed him, Scheana says she now believes that confrontation was the beginning of the end of their relationship.

“I stepped outside and I called him. I was like ‘look, I just got to tell you something, obviously I don’t believe it,’ thinking that he’d be like these girls are so silly. But no,” Scheana recalled.

“Sadly, like literally, his switch just went to off in that moment on that phone call,” she revealed. “And when he got back, nothing was ever the same.”

Sheana and Rob continued to date for several months, but from the way she describes t, that period consisted of her clinging to the corpse of a long-dead relationship:

“I kept telling myself that everything was fine and he would get over it, that he just needed a little bit of time. And then a week [passes], and then two weeks, and he just never became himself again,” she told McDonald.

“And after filming wrapped, about two weeks later, he broke up with me.”

As for the specifics of how he cut loose – well, it’s unfortunate that it dumping wasn’t caught on tape because this is a textbook case of “he’s just not that into you.”

“I was over there [at his place], it was fantasy football time and that was priority that night,” Scheana said.

“So he was literally doing his drafts and I’m just sitting there like are we going to talk? Like what’s going on? And finally he finished picking his players and I was cut and traded.”

We assume that joke was followed byu an extended crying jag.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself of just how psychotic Scheana became at one point.
