Leonardo DiCaprio is not happy that his name “is being dragged through the mud,” and says that he’ll make sure that Depp never works in Hollywood again.
The 45-year-old babyfaced Titanic actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, is hell hellbent on destroying Johnny Depp and his career. “He’ll never work in Hollywood again,” he said after Depp said he may have slept with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp is the likely victor in his libel case against the British tabloid The Sun. The tabloid published an article calling him a wife-beater and revealing stolen private messages from his personal phone.
During the trial Johnny Depp said his ex-wife, Aquaman star, Amber Heard had an affair with several high-profile individuals during their marriage and that was the beginning of the downfall of their relationship.
Amber Heard allegedly cheated with Musk, Franco, Tatum, and DiCaprio
Depp alleged that Elon Musk, James Franco, Channing Tatum, and Leonardo DiCaprio had been with Amber Heard while they were married. Musk and Franco have denied having an affair despite CTV footage showing both Franco and Musk being intimate in an elevator in Depp’s LA penthouse. The footage was recorded while Depp was away on business.
Musk has refused to comment on the situation but has jokingly challenged Depp to a cage match fight.
Leonardo DiCaprio, on the other hand, is not taking the Amber Heard allegations lightly and has now vowed to “destroy Johnny Depp.”
Johnny Depp will never work in Hollywood again
An unnamed source told the Australian lifestyle magazine New Idea that DiCaprio vowed to destroy Depp’s career so that he couldn’t ruin the the actor’s name and reputation any further.
“Leo is livid. He’s banned all his associates, as well as anyone who wants to work with him ever again, from dealing with Johnny. He can’t believe Johnny’s thrown him into his mess like it’s no big deal,” the source said.
The source alleged that Depp and DiCaprio were once close friends but things have since drastically changed.
“Johnny is going to find himself almost unemployable after all this is over. He did himself no favours by revealing the childish nicknames he’d saddled a lot of them with, either. In his blind determination to destroy Amber, he’s pretty much cut his nose off to spite his face,” the source said.
The derogatory name that the unnamed source is referring to is “pumpkin head.”
Depp was reportedly only ever heard calling Johnny Depp “pumpkin head” by his ex-wife Amber Heard.
“He accused me of cheating with Leonardo “Pumpkin Head” DiCaprio and Channing “Potato Head” Tatum.”
Amber Heard spotted out in public with her “close friend” Channing “Potato Head” Tatum.
“He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair. Johnny would act as if he had information proving it – when I really hadn’t. He would taunt me about it – especially when he was drunk or high,” Heard said.
Fans say that Leonardo DiCaprio is overreacting
Droves of fans have spoken out against the seemingly drastic actions that DiCaprio has taken to “destroy” Johnny Depp and his career.
It was pointed out that all of these allegations came directly from Amber Heard and Depp has never publicly degraded DiCaprio in anyway.
“She [Amber Heard] was the one that said these things. There’s no proof that Johnny called DiCaprio a ‘pumpkin head’, even still, that’s such a silly reason to get angry,” a Depp fan posted.
Leonardo’s reaction is an admission of guilty?
Some think that Leonardo DiCaprio’s harsh reaction to the allegations and comments is an admission of guilt.
“Ruin a man’s life for calling you pumpkin head? Or maybe you really are guilty of cheating on your 23-year-old wife? Offence is the best defence, right?” another said.

Leonardo DiCaprio married Camila Morrone back in 2007 when she was only 19-years-old. He was 22 years her senior.
The actor did receive a bit of backlash for his bride’s age.
During Gervais’ opening monologue at last year’s Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais roasted the length of some of this year’s film nominees, including Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which runs nearly three hours.
“Leo DiCaprio attended the premiere (of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’) and by the end, his date was too old for him,” Gervais joked. “Even Prince Andrew is like, “Come on, mate’.”
The Depp vs. The Sun libel trial has concluded but we are still waiting a verdict. Many fans are hopeful that the odds are in Johnny Depp’s favour.
