Johnny Depp’s former friend, Io Tillett Wright, has claimed the actor would insult his adoring fans by referring to them as ‘sucker fishes’.
Wright, once a good friend of both Depp and ex wife Amber Heard, appeared in court via video link on Tuesday.
Mr Wright, who is a photographer, claimed he met Depp in 2013 and says he still “cares deeply” for him.
Wright claimed Depp would have a darker side while consuming alcohol and drugs. He stated that the actor once said, about Heard:
“She has no talent and when her t**s start to sag and her face gets wrinkly, no one is going to be interested in her for anything,”
The photographer said, of his former friend:
“Johnny is incredibly intelligent, incredibly smart and witty, and he would point his jokes at people, Amber’s appearance, her talent — her lack of talent, as he perceived it, why he thought she was actually famous, which he always implied was because of her looks.”
He continued, claiming Depp would also insult his many adoring fans behind closed doors:
“He would insult his fans, he called them — I remember, he called them remoras, which is a type of suckerfish that attaches itself to the hull of a ship and puts a hole in it and then sinks it,”
I wonder how Depp fans will feel about this…
