Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp has had quite an extensive dating life in his 60 years. He has had several public romances with well-known celebrities, including actress Winona Rider and model Kate Moss. He then quietly dated his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis for 14 years. The two share two children together. They split up in 2012. Not long after the split, Depp was linked to Aquaman star, Amber Heard.

Heard and Depp married in 2015, but split just two years later. Things were incredibly messy, and the two ended up in court — both suing each other for tens of millions of dollars for defamation. The trial lasted six weeks, with Depp winning a $10 million judgment against Heard, and Heard receiving just $2 million from Depp. The trial has since been made into a documentary by Netflix.

Since his split from Heard, Depp’s dating life has been pretty non-existent, although he was linked to the lawyer who represented him in his defamation suit. However, the celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi recently published what’s known as a “blind item” that claimed Depp was spotted on a date with 20-year-old Wednesday star Jenna Ortega. A blind item is a story that is reported on, but the identity of the person who submitted the information is not revealed.

In a now-deleted Instagram story, Ms. Ortega was quick to shoot down the claims and call out those who posted about the fake tryst.

“This is so ridiculous I can’t even laugh. I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone.”

A spokesperson for Mr. Depp also released a statement denying the claims and confirming that the two did not know each other.

“Mr. Depp has no personal or professional relationship with Ms. Ortega whatsoever. He has never met her or spoken to her. He is not involved in any project with her, nor does he intend to be. He is appalled by these baseless and malicious rumours that are intended to harm his reputation and career.”

Depp is currently on tour with his band, The Hollywood Vampires. He has a new project scheduled to come out in 2024 — Johnny Puff: Secret Mission. The movie will tell the story of Johnny Puff and his fellow puffins as they work together to save Taigasville from the evil Otto Von Walrus. Depp will voice Johnny Puff.

Ortega is currently working on a number of projects, including the highly anticipated second season of the hit Netflix show, Wednesday, where she plays Wednesday Addams. She is also set to star in Beetlejuice 2, alongside Michael Keaton and Winona Rider, who will reprise their roles as Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz, respectively. Ortega will be playing Lydia’s daughter.
