Johnny Depp Recalls Hitting Rock Bottom During Amber Heard Divorce Heard filed for divorce from Depp in 2016 after 15 months of marriage. During that time, Depp's mother, Betty Sue, died from cancer. “I was as low as I believe I could have gotten...I couldn’t take the pain every day.” Every morning, Depp recalls pouring himself a glass of vodka and writing until tears began to fill his eyes. He would write a memoir using an old-fashioned type writer to ease the pain. I kept trying to figure out what I’d done to deserve this. I’d tried being kind to everyone, helping everyone, being truthful to everyone. The truth is most important to me. And all this still happened. Heard and Depp met while filming the 2011 movie 'The Rum Diaries.' After their separation, Heard was awarded $7 million in the divorce settlement, which she donated to charity.
