Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp is living on her own path in life while still wholeheartedly supporting her father. While the actor and Amber Heard had their constant back and forth, there were moments when the actress would interfere in how Depp raised his daughter. She put even more allegations against her ex-husband.
The two fought a lot during the defamation trial. However, it was the allegations of Depp giving his minor daughter drugs, that truly riled up Heard. The controversy regarding the matter was even brought up to the stand with both the actors trying to defend their actions. Although Heard admitted she had no right in interfering, somewhere she felt obligated to do so.
Johnny Depp Gave His Daughter Lily-Rose Depp Drugs
During the trial against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard stated that she had to interfere in his and Lily-Rose Depp’s relationship although she usually chooses to stay out of it. She confirmed that when his daughter was only thirteen years old, it was Depp who introduced the young actress to marijuana.
“I felt protective over Lily-Rose and concerned and naturally they were not my children, it’s not my place and I understand that, I know it’s a sensitive subject, so I understand why Johnny got so upset with me.”
Depp was extremely upset when the actress chose to interfere in his parenting and even tried defending his actions. Heard was adamant about the fact that she understood why it wasn’t her place to speak up. Yet she chose to do so because in a way she felt protective of his daughter and wanted to help when she could see that things that were happening were wrong. She pointed to how there was a person who was above the age of eighteen who had been roaming around their place. However, it was the introduction of marijuana that really crossed the line for her.
Johnny Depp Defended His Actions
Johnny Depp focused on the fact that his daughter was at an age where she could easily be influenced by anything that was presented before her. She would attend various parties where she would be offered drinks and drugs. In order to guide her accordingly, he told her to take whatever was being offered to her and simply pass it on and not consume anything so as to not mess with things she had no understanding of.
“My daughter was 13 years old and, as we all know, at 11, 12, 13 years old, when you go to high school parties you are approached by people who will want to give you drink because they’re drinking.”
He further advised his daughter about how her first experience of any unpredictable substances could be with people she trusted, especially her father. He elaborated on how the weed he possessed was of trustable quality and that was one he could give to his daughter for experience purposes.
