Johnny Depp showed up in Pennsylvania on Friday to start the US tour of his band, The Hollywood Vampires – and debuted an altered tattoo.
Depp’s knuckle ink used to read “SLIM,” which many say was a nickname for his estranged wife Amber Heard. Now, it reads “SCUM.” Ouch.
The actor also had a bicep tattoo of a pin-up model resembling Heard, which he sported as recently as last month, blackened out.
This isn’t the first time Depp has had to alter his tattoos after breaking up with someone. When dating Winona Ryder 25 years ago, he famously had a tattoo that read “Winona Forever,” that he changed to “Wino Forever” after the two called it quits. Maybe he should rethink his GF ink moving forward…
Heard filed for divorce in May and obtained a temporary restraining against Depp after she claimed he had been physically abusive to her in their marriage.
Ryder recently spoke about her ex and if he had ever showed the same behavior when they were together. “He was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me,” she told TIME. “I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves. That’s my experience. And it’s been a very long time.”
Depp is keeping busy jamming with the Hollywood Vampires. He also recently made a surprise appearance at an L.A. comedy club last week.
