“I don’t really want to be judgmental publicly, but I just want to tell you that Johnny gave me CPR in 1995 when I overdosed outside the Viper Room with Sal [Jenco]. When I was using crack and Frances was having to suffer through it with social workers, Johnny wrote her a four-page letter, which she didn’t show me, on her 13th birthday. He didn’t really know me.”
Courtney Love revealed that Johnny Depp has helped her daughter on several occasions. She mentioned that Depp sent limousines to the school where Frances attended, without anyone asking, to pick her up during the period when social workers were “crawling around.” According to her, Depp took her daughter and all her friends to watch.

“I was the most hated woman in America. I was the most hated woman in the world, before TikTok, and it’s really a lot of empathy for what it should be like for Amber. Can you imagine what it’s like? Jesus. But if you use a movement for your own personal gain, and you inhabit feminist, queer intersectional spaces, and you abuse that moment, then I hope justice is served, whatever that may be. And I think we should have less schadenfreude* and more empathy for everyone involved“.
