Leonardo DiCaprio is, allegedly, furious at Johnny Depp for dragging his name in his recent court hearings.
Depp filed a lawsuit against The Sun’s publisher, NGN, and editor, Dan Wootton for calling him a wife-beater. During the hearing, Amber Heard gave her accounts and revealed that her ex-husband accused her of having an affair with Leonardo DiCaprio.
According to New Idea, DiCaprio was upset with what Depp did especially since he barely knows Heard. The Titanic actor is also very happy with his girlfriend, Camila Morrone so he doesn’t want anything to do with Depp and his case.
Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly furious at Johnny Depp
An unnamed source claimed that DiCaprio vowed to destroy Depp’s career so that he couldn’t ruin the former’s name and reputation further.
“Leo is livid. He’s banned all his associates, as well as anyone who wants to work with him ever again, from dealing with Johnny. He can’t believe Johnny’s thrown him into his mess like it’s no big deal,” the unnamed source said.
Leonardo DiCaprio no longer friends with Johnny Depp?
The source also said that Depp and DiCaprio were once very close. However, the latter has, reportedly, developed a closer bond with Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Bradley Cooper.
“Johnny is going to find himself almost unemployable after all this is over. He did himself no favors by revealing the childish nicknames he’d saddled a lot of them with, either. In his blind determination to destroy Amber, he’s pretty much cut his nose off to spite his face,” the source said.
Johnny Depp gave his pal a derogatory nickname
Heard said that Depp gave Leonardo DiCaprio the nickname “pumpkin head” while at the hearing. Depp also accused his ex-wife of having an affair with DiCaprio.
“He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair. Johnny would act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn’t. He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high,” Heard said.
The court is currently is on recess, and the judge will reveal his ruling in the coming months.
As of late, Leonardo DiCaprio has not publicly reacted to Depp’s derogatory nickname for him. As such, one should still take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt.
