For the past few weeks, all eyes have been on the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia, where actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, have been engaged in an explosive legal battle.

Depp, 58, sued his ex-wife for $50million (£40m), claiming that a 2018 article she wrote for The Washington Post about her experience with domestic abuse, suggested that he was physically and sexually abusive towards her during their marriage. Heard later filed a countersuit against him for $100m (£80.3m). 

Depp and Heard have both taken to the stand, as well as various witnesses and experts – with one of Depp’s exes set to testify tomorrow.

The news has caused many to wonder who Depp has dated in the past – and who he has been married to.

Here is the Edward Scissorhands actor’s full relationship history.

Who has Johnny Depp dated and been married to?

Depp was also linked to Sherilyn Fenn, who starred on Twin Peaks.

She calls the actor her ‘first love; and says she knows him ‘as a hiuman not a movie star’.

Their relationship lasted several years during the 1980s, and she is now married to someone else and a mother of two.

One of the ‘it’ couples of the 1990s were Johnny Depp and Kate Moss.

They met in 1994 when he was 31 and she was 20, and their four-year relationship was notoriously fiery.

Moss, now 48, is set to testify in the Depp and Heard trial tomorrow after Amber alluded to an alleged domestic violence incident between the pair back when they were dating.

The couple have two children together – Lily-Rose and John.

Amber Heard

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married on February 3, 2015 in Los Angeles.

The pair met on the set of the movie The Rum Diary in 2009, and began living together the following year.

However, the marriage proved short-lived, with Heard filing for divorce the following year and filing for a temporary restraining order.

Polina Glen


After having met in 2017, Depp and dancer Polina Glen became official in 2019 following his divorce with Heard.

However, reports suggest that the public pressure of their relationship became too much for Polina to handle, causing her to break off the relationship and return to Russia.

Sophie Hermann

Depp was rumoured to have dated Made in Chelsea star Sophie Hermann in 2020.

They were reportedly spotted together at The Corinthia hotel in London in September of that year.
