Johnny Depp Says Daughter Lily-Rose Did Not Attend His Wedding To Amber Heard ‘For Several Reasons’

Johnny Depp testified about his and Amber Heard’s wedding day, and why exactly, his daughter did not attend.

Johnny and Amber were married back in February 2015 in an intimate celebration on his private island in the Bahamas.

While on the stand Wednesday, Johnny recalled that the older of his two kids with ex Vanessa Paradis, the now-22-year-old actress Lily-Rose Depp, skipped the event, which had about 20 to 25 people in attendance, Johnny stated in the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia.

“My daughter Lily-Rose did not come to the wedding. She and Ms. Heard were not on particularly great terms, for several reasons,” he said.

He also informed the courtroom how Heard and her “gang” of friends partook in drugs at their wedding reception from a “communal bag of MDMA,” and that there was a schedule for the day’s festivities that read: “Dinner, dancing and drugs.” Johnny, meanwhile, smoked his “drug of choice” marijuana, he recalled.

Depp, who is also a father to a 20-year-old son Jack and was previously married to Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1985, stated he and Heard did not have a prenuptial agreement, and that a later discussion of a post-nup created tension between them.

At the start of his witness testimony on Tuesday, Depp, 58, said that he is suing Heard, 35, for defamation because his “goal is the truth” and that he hopes to “clear the record” of the allegations made against him.

He added of Heard’s abuse allegations, “Since I knew there was no truth to it whatsoever, I felt it my responsibility to stand up not only for myself in that instance but stand up for my children, who at the time were 14 and 16.”

The star said this past Wednesday that the “complicated” reason he stayed in his marriage with Heard despite their disputes was “because my father stayed [in his abusive marriage]. … And I didn’t want to fail. I wanted to try to make it work. I thought maybe I could help her. I thought maybe I could bring her around. Because the Amber Heard that I knew for the first year, year and a half was not this, suddenly this opponent. It wasn’t my girl, she had become my opponent.”

Depp is suing Heard for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post about surviving domestic violence, despite not once mentioning Depp by name in the article.

Depp originally filed the $50 million lawsuit in March 2019.
