Depp broke his silence following the split news on Thursday. “Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life,” his rep told Us Weekly in a statement. “Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”
