Accused of being an alcoholic and violent husband by his ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp can count on the support of his very first wife: Lori Anne Allison. Make-up artist born in 1957, the young woman had tried at the time to become a sound engineer before partially losing her hearing during a recording session. She had therefore naturally returned to her first passion: beauty. At 26, in 1983, she married Johnny Depp in a discreet ceremony when he was not known to the general public. It is she who will lead him to glory by introducing him to actor Nicolas Cage.
The two men immediately get along wonderfully. Thanks to Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp obtained his first film role the following year in The Claws of Night, the horror film by Wes Craven. Following this decisive experience, Johnny Depp is convinced that he has found his way and then enters a theater training school. He gets some supporting roles especially in movies Platoon (1986) and in the series 21 Jump Street (1987). He then quickly became an international star when Tim Burton offered him the lead role in the film. Edward Scissorhands (1990).
Unfortunately, the couple separated in 1985. Despite everything, Johnny Depp and Lori Anne Allison remain on very good terms. True guardian angel of the actor, Lori Anne also defended him when Amber Heard sued him for domestic violence. She was not the only one since her ex-companions Vanessa Paradis (with whom he remained for almost fourteen years) and Winona Ryder did the same and defended the 58-year-old actor, father of Lily-Rose Melody (born May 27, 1999) and Jack John Christopher III (born April 9, 2002).
The trial between actor Johnny Depp and Amber Heard began on April 12, 2022 in Fairfax Court. His ex-wife accuses him of domestic violence but also of sexual assault. Amber Heard’s lawyers again claimed that Johnny Depp had “a huge anger“in him that could turn him into”freak” and in “demon“.
