Courtney Love says Johnny Depp saved her life outside Viper Room after 1995 overdose

The Hole front-woman recorded a message of support for Johnny Depp amid his court battle with ex-wife Amber Heard.

Love shared a video to her instagram account, saying, “I don’t really wanna make judgments publicly. I just want to tell you that Johnny gave me CPR in 1995 when I overdosed outside The Viper Room.” the 57-year-old star then shared how Depp also “saved” her daughter Frances Bean by writing her a letter on her 13th birthday while the youngster was dealing with Love’s addiction issues and the suicide of Cobain, even though she didn’t “really know” the star at the time.

She continued: “Johnny, when I was on crack and Frances was having to suffer through that with all these social workers, wrote her a four-page letter that she’s never showed me.” Although Courtney offered support to Johnny, she stressed she still had “empathy” for Amber Heard.

“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. Fuck man, wow, can you imagine being her? Love continued. “But if you use a movement for your own personal gain, and you inhabit queer feminist intersectional spaces, and you abuse that moment, then I hope justice gets served whatever it is.”

Depp is currently battling it out in court with Heard over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she penned in which she claimed she as a victim of sexual violence. While Heard did not mention Depp by name, the “Edward Scissorhands” star claims the article tarnished his reputation and career.

Depp, who was married to Heard from 2015 to 2017, has denied his ex’s claims. The defamation trials closing arguments are expected on 27th May.
