Johnny Depp Steps Out For Dinner Amid Amber Heard Divorce Drama


Johnny Depp took some time to honor his late mother, Betty Sue Palmer, on Wednesday night, with a memorial at a Hollywood restaurant.

Sporting an oversized plaid blazer and loose black pants, the 53-year-old actor was still rocking his new mohawk and accessorized with a variety of necklaces, when he was snapped at the Italian eatery, Ago. Depp appeared tan and understandably looked somber, accompanied by his two children, 17-year-old model Lily-Rose and 14-year-old Jack.

Depp's mother died on May 20 in Los Angeles after a long illness. She was 81 years old. The Pirates of the Caribbean star had a notably close relationship with his mother, tattooing her name, "Betty Sue," inside a heart on his left upper arm.

Three days after Palmer's death, Depp's estranged ex, actress Amber Heard, filed for divorce. She has also accused him of physically abusing her throughout their relationship, and Depp has yet to personally speak out against the allegations. In previous court documents, his lawyer, Laura Wasser, claimed that Heard is "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse."

Depp's close family and friends have defended the actor against Heard's claims. Lily-Rose publicly backed her father shortly after the 30-year-old actress' allegations went public, sharing a childhood photo of the two on Instagram.

"My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know, he's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same," the Chanel model wrote.

Lily-Rose and Jack's mother, supermodel Vanessa Paradis, also defended her ex of 14 years in a letter last month.

"He is a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations being made are outrageous," Paradis, 43, wrote. "In all the years I have known Johnny, he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I live with for 14 wonderful years."

Depp's latest outing comes after his surprise appearance on Saturday night at The Comedy Store in Hollywood, California, jumping onstage with comedian Mat Edgar. Depp, who appeared to be in high spirits, was seen with comedian Doug Stanhope. Stanhope is currently being sued by Heard for defamation after his guest column -- titled "Johnny Depp Is Being Blackmailed by Amber Heard -- Here's How I Know" -- was published on TheWrap.com on May 29.

Backstage with Ryan Adams, Johnny Depp, Kerry Mitchell, Doug Stanhope, and Brett Erickson.
