Marilyn Manson’s Conversation With Johnny Depp About His ‘Amber 2.0’ Situation Is Revealed


According to the unsealed documents from the sensational defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Marilyn Manson once sent Depp a text message saying he was in an ‘Amber 2.0‘ situation.

Although Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorced in 2017, the issues between the two didn’t settle for a long time. They battled in court over an article Heard wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, in which she talked about the domestic violence she was subjected to without mentioning Depp by name. After many mutual accusations and a trial that lasted for weeks, the jury found Heard guilty of defamation and ordered her to pay $15 million in damages.

Another case that has received much media attention is the one between Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood. Manson filed a lawsuit against Wood a few months ago after the actress claimed that Manson sexually abused her during their five-year relationship. Manson claimed that her allegations against him were false, and Wood’s statements didn’t reflect what happened between the two. Wood’s allegations ignited the fire, and many women accused Manson of abuse, rape, and violence.

Apparently, Marilyn Manson is no stranger to turbulent relationships, considering his statements on unsealed documents. The relationship between Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson had already been mentioned during the Depp-Heard trial. Newly unsealed pre-trial court documents viewed by Newsweek have shown that Manson wrote in a text message to Johnny Depp in 2016 that he had an ‘Amber 2.0’ situation, referring to his relationship with his then-girlfriend, Lindsay Usich, with whom he is married now.

Manson compared Usich to Amber Heard in a series of messages by claiming that Lindsay issued a restraining order against him for allegedly saying that the singer used violence over her and had drugs in his home. Depp texted him back and said he could read these sociopathic behaviors due to his similar situation with Amber Heard. The actor suggested Manson stay calm and act carefully.
