Courtney Love has revealed Johnny Depp once saved her life by giving her CPR when she overdosed on drugs.
She revealed in a clip shared to her friend Jessica Reed Kraus’s Instagram that he had helped save her life and support her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, during her darkest time.
Love explained: ‘I don’t really wanna make judgments publicly, but I just want to tell you that Johnny gave me CPR in 1995 when I overdosed outside the Viper Room with Sal.
‘Johnny, when I was on crack and Frances was having to suffer through that with social workers, wrote her a four-page letter that she’s never showed me on her 13th birthday. He didn’t really know me.
‘Then he sent limos to her school when the social workers were crawling around – again, unasked – for her and all of her friends.’
She added: ‘You know, she said to me when she was 13, “mama, he saved my life”. And she said it again.’
Addressing the online trolling against Heard since the trial began, Love shared her sympathy, adding: ‘Lastly, I’ve been the most hated woman in America, I’ve been the most hated woman in the world before TikTok and it’s a really… I have a lot of empathy for what that must feel like for Amber. F**k man, wow, can you imagine being her?’
Love later addressed and clarified her comments on her own account as she added: ‘I want to show neutral support for a friend. I don’t want to bully.
‘I’ve been bullied enough. I did not want to express my own bias / internalised misogyny. (Do give me a break on that one. Look at my JOB! I’m working on it) I want nothing to do with contributing more online bullying to someone enduring being bullied like no-one ever has been online. Ever.
‘In my program of recovery, “when we were wrong, we promptly admitted it”. I was wrong.
‘The only important takeaway, of what was posted, is that I expressed that we should all stop having “fun with schadenfraude” (look it up: “Delight in another’s down fall”) & show sincere empathy for both parties. If I hurt anyone, please accept my amends.’
Depp has brought the current court case against Heard, suing her for $50million (£40million) after claiming she defamed him in a 2018 op-ed stating she was the survivor of domestic abuse.
The actor was not named in the article and Heard is countersuing. The trial continues.
