Lori Anne Allison
The first one on our list of Johnny Depp Ex Girlfriends is Lori Anne Allison. In 1983, Depp married makeup artist Lori Anne Allison for the first time at the age of 20. Depp was introduced to Allison by her brother, a drummer in a band called Kids with Depp, according to Rolling Stone. Allison is six years his senior.
A lot of people credit Allison with helping to kick-start Johnny Depp’s career, as she connected him to Nicolas Cage, who in turn recommended him to his own agent, who signed Depp and landed him an audition for “A Nightmare on Elm Street” in 1984.
Allison told TMZ in 2016 that Depp is a “soft person” who never beat or yelled at her, despite Heard’s assertions that he was abusive to her.
In 1985, Depp met Sherilyn Fenn, an actress, while filming a short film called “Dummies.” After a three-year relationship, the two worked together on another episode of “21 Jump Street” in 1987. According to sources, they were even engaged at the time. Despite the fact that she and Allison ended their relationship the following year, Fenn has only kind things to say about her ex in the time since.
His demeanor was amiable. She told The Big Issue in 2017 that he was her first love. “I had found real love. It was with someone who was walking the same path, but even if he wasn’t, the love and the connection were strong enough – cooking meals, hanging out, laughing, and crying. So it is more about that than the fact he is this well-known person now. I know him as a human, not a movie star.”
In her 2022 memoir, “Out of the Corner,” Jennifer Grey claims that he proposed to her just two weeks after they first met through her agency in 1989, according to Grey.
During a May 2022 appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Grey also stated that she was engaged to the actor — as well as Matthew Broderick — during the same month.
Despite her initial impression of him as “ridiculously beautiful,” she subsequently admitted that he had developed an aggressive personality that led her to call off their engagement after only nine months of dating.
After spotting Winona Ryder at the opening of Ryder’s 1989 picture “Great Balls of Fire,” Johnny Depp fell in love with her. “It was a classic glance, like the zoom lenses in ‘West Side Story,’ and everything else gets foggy. I knew then,” Depp told Rolling Stone in 1991.
Months later, they’d run into each other through a common friend, and they’d go on to star together in “Edward Scissorhands,” a film from 1990. Depp received the now-famous “Winona Forever” tattoo on his bicep during their high-profile romance.
Winona Ryder is one of those ex-girlfriends of Johnny Depp who still has a good relationship with him. In spite of their breakup in 1993, Ryder continues to speak highly of his time with Depp and even testified on his side in his UK libel trial against The Sun, which he ultimately lost, notwithstanding their split.
In 1994, while Ellen Barkin was still married to Irish actor Gabriel Byrne, Johnny Depp began an affair with her. In 1998, while filming “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” they began a non-exclusive relationship, which they continued for the rest of their lives.
Because Barkin testified against him in his UK trial, claiming he allegedly threw a wine bottle at her, Depp claims that Barkin still harbors a “grudge” against him for not wanting to make things formal between them.
For months on and off, “a sexual element” developed between Depp and Barkin, but “she wanted a proper relationship with me and I did not want that,” he explained.
Kate Moss is another one of those celebrities we have included in our list of Johnny Depp ex-girlfriends. They began dating in late 1994 after meeting through Vanity Fair celebrity journalist George Wayne. Depp was arrested that year for inflicting over $10,000 worth of damage to a hotel room, and Moss was found lounging among the wreckage by police.
The combination would turn out to be stormy. The couple remained together until 1998, despite the difficult evening. Since then, Moss has opened out about how difficult the breakup was for her, claiming that it resulted in “years of crying” over the “City of Lies” actor’s loss.
Having ended his relationship with Moss and had a brief romance with Barkin, Depp began seeing Vanessa Paradis in 1998. A 14-year relationship developed between singer Paradis and actor Depp when they met on the set of Roman Polanski’s film “The Ninth Gate” in Paris. Lily-Rose and Jack were born to the couple in 1999 and 2002, respectively.
The couple filed for divorce in 2012, with Depp telling Rolling Stone of their breakup, “It wasn’t easy on [Paradis]. It wasn’t easy on me. It wasn’t easy on the kids. It doesn’t stop the fact that you care for that person, and they’re the mother of your kids, and you’ll always know each other, and you’re always gonna be in each other’s lives because of those kids.”
The last person we have added to our list of Johnny Depp ex-girlfriends is Amber Heard. After working together in the 2009 film “Rum Diaries,” Johnny Depp and Amber Heard started dating rumors in 2011. Wedding vows were exchanged on a private Caribbean island owned by the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor in 2015.
Depp allegedly joked to his best man on his wedding day that “now I can hit her,” as they walked from the ceremony to the reception, indicating their union was doomed from the start. The “Aquaman” star has been accused of violence by Depp, who has denied ever abusing her.
The divorce was finalized in 2016 after Heard filed for it. In May of 2022, Depp filed a $50 million defamation claim against Heard, alleging she had slandered him.
