Johnny Depp reportedly changes wording of tattoo dedicated to Amber Heard

Things have turned very nasty.

If you've been following the breakdown of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship, you'll know how troubled things have become.

Amber filed for divorce at the end of May and then went on to seek a restraining order from her estranged husband.

The actress alleged that Johnny had assaulted her during the course of their relationship, at one stage reportedly "smashing an iPhone into her face".

Johnny has a tattoo dedicated to Amber, reading Slim, which is reportedly her nickname.

However, according to TMZ, he has now changed said tattoo to read 'scum'.

Amber and Johnny, who met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009, are due to appear in court this August as their divorce proceedings continue.

Johnny's ex-partner Winona Ryder spoke out in his defence recently.

In conversation with TIME, she said:

"I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. I mean, he was never, never that way towards me.

"Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.

"It’s hard because I feel like—that’s my experience. And it’s been a very long time".
