Amber Heard and Johnny Depp had a whirlwind romance that spanned almost a decade. The two began dating in early 2012, with Heard stating in a court filing that they began seeing each other “around the end of 2011 or the start of 2012.” This was around the same time that Depp and his long-time partner Vanessa Paradis publicly announced their separation after 14 years of dating.
The couple was first seen together in public in 2012, when they attended the premiere of Depp’s film Dark Shadows. They were then seen together at a variety of events, including the 2012 Met Gala, the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, and the 2014 Art of Elysium Gala.
The couple’s relationship was not without its ups and downs. In 2014, Depp and Heard were engaged, but the engagement was called off the following year. Despite this, the couple remained together and were married in 2015.
However, the marriage was short-lived. In 2016, Heard filed for divorce from Depp, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized in 2017, bringing an end to their four-year marriage.
In total, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were together for almost a decade, from early 2012 to 2017. While their relationship was tumultuous at times, they were together for a significant amount of time, and their relationship was a source of much public interest.
