Johnny Depp has a history of dating many stars who are still in a healthy relationship with him. However his first wife, Lori Anne Allison did not have the same thoughts as others.
The former couple tied the knot in 1983 in South Florida when the former was 20 years old and the makeup artist was 25. Their marriage however didn’t last long as the couple got separated within 2 years.
The reports by The Hollywood Reporter back in 2020 shared that the Pirates Of The Caribbean star often used a racial slur and abused her.
Not just that, he gave his wife $1.25 million as a settlement to forbid her from speaking anything regarding the same.
The sources shared, “Johnny paid his first wife, Lori Anne Allison, a $1.25 million settlement in exchange for her silence. She promised not to talk about a long ranting voicemail message he left her where he ‘repeatedly used the N-word.’”
Even after that, she defended her former husband in his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard which happened earlier this year with the former winning the lawsuit.

Not only his first former wife but also his former girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis also became a victim of his racist approach. They had a long history of 14 years from 1998 until 2012.
During an episode of his defamation trial against Heard, he claimed that the Aquaman actress had told him that he was a “bad father” and that his children did not like him. He shares two children Lily-Rose Depp and John Christopher ‘Jack’ Depp III with Paradis.
He further added that it was the 36-year-old actress who did not like his kids. To her defense, Heard’s team shared an email, the 59-year-old actor had written to his friend Elton John in 2013 criticizing his former girlfriend.
In that email, he called Paradis, a “French extortionist (ex c***).”
The speculations stated that he had to pay a hefty sum of $150 million as a settlement to his former lover. Though there is no confirmation about the reports.
