Johnny Depp did NOT tell wife Amber Heard to stop being friends with James Franco, despite a completely made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

Franco and Heard co-starred together in the movies Pineapple Express and The Adderall Diaries, and have remained friendly since filming. But, according to OK!, Depp feels “threatened” by his wife’s friendship with the actor.

A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “James wants Amber to star in one of his movies, and Johnny went off the deep end when he saw friendly texts between them.” The tabloid’s dubious “insider” goes on to claim, “Amber says it’s innocent, but he’s more paranoid than ever.”

None of this is true, however, and OK! has simply regurgitated an old tale that Gossip Cop already busted. When Heard and Franco were filming The Adderall Diaries in summer 2014, the tabloid claimed that Depp would show up to the set unannounced because he was suspicious of their relationship.

Gossip Cop was told by a source close to the situation that the tabloid’s story was “untrue” and “nonsense.” We checked in with the source once again to get to the bottom of this latest rumor, and we’re exclusively assured the tabloid’s claim that Depp wants Heard to cut off ties with Franco is simply “not true.”
