Grey further added, “Johnny was commuting every week back and forth from Vancouver, but had begun more and more regularly to be getting into trouble: fights in bars, skirmishes with cops. He’d started missing his flights home to LA having overslept or, when he did come home, he’d be crazy jealous and paranoid about what I’d been up to while he was gone.

Here’s everything you need to know about the dating history of Jennifer and Depp

The couple started dating back in 1989. The Red Dawn actress put some light on her relationship with Johnny in her memoir Out Of The Corner as well.

Jennifer spilled the beans on the duo’s relationship and said, “There was once some warmth. It was once a fucking bonfire. It was once actually like, Are you fucking kidding me? Are you fucking kidding me? I’ve by no means observed a man like this.”

Grey further added,  “And energetically, what it was once like being with him, it was once like, ‘Oh, I’m being utterly, utterly compensated for the shit I simply went via.” She was romantically linked to the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory star post her split from her co-star Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Matthew Broderick.

The I Am Patrick Swayze actress talked about her relationship with Broderick as well, she said, “I was in love with him, and I was with him for many years. He was not naturally my type. But my type, turns out, is just insane talent and humor and brains. And something about that guy just got to me.”

During a recent interaction with People, the Reckless star stated that just 2 weeks into their relationship, Johnny popped the question to her, he asked her to marry him to which she replied with a big ‘yes.’ She also told the media outlet that they would often twin and wear matching leather jackets. That sounds like couple goals to us.

Jennifer also said, “On August 12, I wrote in my journal, ‘I’m in love, pretty sure for the first time in my life … He’s kind, funny, smart, moral, thoughtful, respectful,’” in a chapter of her book cleverly titled “Mrs. Broderdepp.”

In her memoir, the If the Shoe Fits actress just poured her heart out, she let all the feelings for Johnny out. She penned, “If a mirage could have been a person in the summer of 1988, that mirage would have been Johnny Depp.”

The love story of these two lovebirds couldn’t last long as Depp’s career began to flourish overtime. Jennifer also stated that as Johnny’s career started to touch new levels of success, their relationship began to fall apart as he got more frustrated which ended up being a problem for them.

In no time, Depp became a heartthrob of Hollywood. According to multiple reports, Grey decided to end her relationship with the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them star  and she left a note in his hotel room that stated their nine-month engagement was over.

Did Grey and Depp ever get married?
