As the defamation trial of Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard enters its final week, rock star and actress Courtney Love expressed support for Depp as she recounted the time that the actor had rescued her from an overdose. 

The video expressing support for Depp was posted on the TikTok account of a friend of Courtney Love and recalled the time when Depp had given Love CPR after she overdosed on drugs in the Viper Room in California, according to Page Six

“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,” she said. 

Love also claims that Depp had reached out to her daughter Frances Bean during the difficult years after her husband Kurt Cobain’s suicide, with her saying that he wrote Frances a letter and brought her to the premiere of one of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. 

“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,” Love said. “Then he sent limos to her school where all the social workers were crawling around, again, unasked, for her and all her friends to go to ‘Pirates [of the Caribbean],’”

In spite of Love’s position towards Johnny Depp in the trial, she had also expressed empathy for Amber Heard whilst still decrying what she believes to be using “queer feminist intersectional spaces” for her “own personal gain.”

Heard has recently recounted on the witness stand where she called the police after Depp reportedly threw a phone at her face during an argument, before taunting her further and hitting her in the head with his hand and yanking her around the room with her hair, the Independent reported. 

During the testimony, photographs from the police of Amber Heard’s bruised and injured face were shown in the court, and she recounted her refusal to cooperate with police officers at the time in an attempt to protect Depp and keep him from getting arrested.
