This is a bit of a weird one. Johnny Depp was subpoenaed this week to testify in a murder case involving an insane woman who dragged and killed a pedestrian with her car back in 2009. What’s all this got to do with Johnny, you might ask? Well, the suspect’s lawyer wants to get her declared as insane and apparently at the time of the crime, she claimed she and Johnny were in a relationship, which is why she was in the neighbourhood – to meet up with him.
Here’s TMZ‘s rundown:
Depp was served with legal docs at his premiere Thursday in Hollywood (above) for his movie, “Transcendence.” And here’s why.
Nancy Lekon was driving a limo in downtown L.A.’s Skid Row neighborhood back in 2009 and allegedly mowed down a pedestrian, dragging her for a mile and killing her.
Lekon has been charged with murder and will stand trial later this month. She pled not guilty by reason of insanity. As for how her public defender plans to prove she was insane at the time of the killing … enter Johnny Depp.
Lekon told officers at the time of her arrest she was in a relationship with Johnny Depp and was in the area so they could rendezvous. The public defender now wants to call Johnny to the stand, to show the jury she’s delusional.
We’re assuming Johnny will testify he doesn’t know Lekon.
Damn, being a celebrity is crazy (no pun intended). Can he not just give a statement? Does he actually have to appear at court? That’s kinda giving the woman what she wants, isn’t it? She’s clearly obsessed with Johnny… I dunno, it’s all pretty bizarre.

The word on the street is that recently engaged couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are already expecting their first child together. The report comes from the April 14th issue of US Weekly (which has been leaked by Hollywood Life) and claims that Amber’s pregnant already. Could that be the motivation behind yet ANOTHER shotgun wedding/engagement?
“Amber is so ready to be a mom,” a source close to the couple revealed to the magazine. That same source claims that Johnny “says it’s a whole new life for him. He’s thrilled to bits!”
Huh. No idea whether or not this one is true, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was. I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
Johnny already has two kids with his ex, Vanessa Paradis. His daughter Lily-Rose is 14 and his son Jack is 11.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s engagement was confirmed last month, but they hadn’t celebrated their big news until this past Friday night, when they threw a party in LA and invited all of their celebrity friends. The shindig was held at The Carondelet House, which is apparently super fancy and was built in 1928 to host special events.
So, who turned up for the big event? Hilariously, Marilyn Manson was there, as were Mandy Moore, Steven Tyler, Jerry Bruckheimer, Rick Ruben… sounds like fun, eh? Here’s more from US Weekly:
The stunning bride-to-be wore a white silk spaghetti-strap “vintage dressy” ensemble for her big night, with her blonde locks down. Depp, meanwhile, went for a casual black suit and matching top hat. Heard’s sister arrived with the couple, as well as Jack, Depp’s 11-year-old son with his ex partner Vanessa Paradis.
Once inside The Carondelet House, the future spouses enjoyed a bite to eat and listened to oldies rock songs. The playlist included retro classics from the ’60s through the ’80s like “Wild Thing” by The Troggs, “Tutti Fruti” by Little Richard, “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis, “These Boots Are Made For Walking” by Nancy Sinatra, and “We Got The Beat” by The Go-Go’s.
That kinda sounds like a nightmare, but uh, glad they had fun?
Right, so do we think this wedding is going to happen? If so, how long will it last? I think they’ll get married and divorced within an 18-month period. We’ll see, I guess.

There have been rumours flying around that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are engaged, and indeed those rumours are based in truth: they’re going to get married! They’ve been dating since about 2012-ish (it’s a bit murky), so it might seem a bit early for rings to be put on fingers, but oh well! They’re doing it!
People wanted the inside scoop on why they got engaged. I feel like that mostly happens when two people love each other, but maybe I’m not clued in to something, so here’s what they found out:
What made Depp get so serious so fast? “She’s a great match for him and his individuality,” says a source who knows Depp. “She’s a free spirit.”
Well, that was enlightening. Don’t forget that Johnny was with Vanessa Paradis still when he met Amber on the set of The Rum Diaries. Amber was, at the time, in a relationship of her own, with photographer Tasya Van Ree. Some say they were so taken with one another’s “free spirit” that they both cheated on their partners at the time to do the dirty. Who can say?

If you’re anything like me, you probably never thought in a million years that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s relationship would make it past the first month, let alone into 2014. And yet here we are, halfway through January and there are rumours running wild that Johnny has proposed. Those rumours might be truer than any of us would hope (or care about?), since Amber has been bustling about LA trying desperately to cover the massive rock on her finger.
From E! Online:
Despite a good effort to keep her left hand covered, an eagle-eyed paparazzo got a bird’s-eye view of what appeared to be a diamond ring on that ringer as Heard was leaving a restaurant last night in Los Angeles.
Reps for both Heard, 27, and Depp, 50, have not yet responded to the question this ring instantly brings to mind—is the handsome couple engaged?!
Until this past weekend, the public side of their romance had been relegated to photos of the two out and about in various cities around the world and vague references to romance and privacy in interviews.
Hmm, this picture is pretty telling, as well:
So, what’s the verdict? Are these two actually gonna go through with this nonsense?

Elton John is coming out with a new album (with a song inspired by Lindsay Lohan, I’m sure it will be a real winner) so here comes the publicity. Not sure who leaked this, but let’s file it under, “Yeah That Happened.” Apparently Elton John is trying to set up Lady Gaga with Johnny Depp. This makes no sense because
1. Elton John recently admitted that he has a hard time even getting a hold of Lady Gaga.
2. Lady Gaga is in a relationship with actor Taylor Kinney.
3. Johnny Depp is in a relationship with actress Amber Heard.
4. Why would he care? Yeah, Gaga is his son’s godmother, but it still doesn’t make sense, because of points #2 and #3.
They’re going so far as to say he set up a “surprise blind date” for them. Here’s even more from Entertainmentwise:
A source revealed: “Elton was determined to hook up Johnny and Gaga,” adding: “While the meeting was under the guise of a future musical collaboration, Elton is convinced the two superstars would make an amazing power couple even though they’re both dating other people right now.”
Apparently the duo “bonded over music, flirted a little and basically got to know each other. By the end of the night, they’d already made plans to see each other again. Elton just sat there grinning.”
Such fan fiction. If this happens, I’m sure Ke$ha will be devastated. The only steady relationship Johnny Depp needs to be in is one with a shower.
