Johnny Depp has had a tough upbringing. The actor shared 3 siblings but nothing was happy or content. The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor was brought up by his mother, Betty Sue Palmer. But did you know JD used some really mean words for his mother at her funeral? The actor even once called her mother a ‘b*tch.’ Below is the scoop you need.
Johnny is currently engaged in a legal battle with British tabloid, The Sun. They referred to him as a ‘wife-beater’ in one of their articles. It all happened soon after ex-wife Amber Heard accused him of physical assault in their marriage. The libel suit trail began at the court yesterday, and Depp spoke about his estranged relationship with his mother.
As Johnny Depp denied allegations by Amber Heard, he opened up about his childhood. The actor revealed how he had consumed one of his mother’s ‘nerve pills.’ Not only that, but the actor also confessed to consuming every drug known to humans just at the age of 14.
Johnny Depp during his earlier interviews opened up about his estranged relationship with mom Betty Sue Palmer. He referred to her with words like ‘hellcat’ but ‘mean’ and ‘funny.’ His mother passed away in 2016 due to cancer. However, during her funeral, he went onto use some really brutal words for her.
Johnny in a conversation with Rolling Stone in 2018, shared that he was a victim of ‘irrational beatings’ from his mother. Talking about the same, he shared, “Maybe it’s an ashtray coming your way. Maybe you’re gonna get clunked with the phone. My mom was born in a f***ing holler in eastern Kentucky, her poor f***ing a** was on phenobarbital at 12.”
The actor after buying a massive house for his home once said, “Betty Sue, I worshipped her but she could be a real b*tch on wheels.”
During her funeral, in presence of the crown, Johnny Depp had said, “My mom was maybe the meanest human being I have ever met in my life.”
