While Johnny Depp has been staying relatively mum about his legal battle with actress Amber Heard, he did opt to express some of his inner feelings through his appearance. The actor was seen sporting a notably altered tattoo on his right knuckle. Initially the body art had “SLIM” written out – in tribute to the nick name Johnny had lovingly given Heard.
However, it now reads “SCUM,” in clear demonstration of the now unfavorable opinion Johnny has of his soon-to-be ex wife. Currently Johnny and Amber are in the midst of a court battle, as Amber is accusing Johnny of physically abusing her. Throughout the messy situation, Johnny and his team have remained adamant that all of Amber’s allegations of abuse are false.
Nonetheless, while Johnny’s lawyers may have convinced him to keep his mouth shut, they haven’t stopped him from doing some emotion-driven tattoo modifications.
NEWS #2 ? #JohnnyDepp stepped out with #HollywoodVampires bandmate #JoePerry on Friday with altered version of his knuckle tattoos. The letters on his right hand, which used to read “Slim”, #AmberHeard’s nickname, have been subtly changed to read “Scum.” Heard and Depp separated in May after allegations of domestic violence against Depp by Heard. Depp also has an oversized tattoo of Heard’s likeness on his right bicep, but he has since appeared to have covered it up with a blot of dark ink.
