[Lainey Gossip] Before it happened, his friends were begging him not to do it. Begging him not to make it permanent. But he was in too deep, and a little wounded too after his most recent professional setback. So it happened. Despite all the warnings, he went ahead and made it official.
But the happily ever after wore off really quickly. It wore off a long time ago. Which is why while he’s working, he’s also hiding. Of course he could stay in luxe accommodations all to himself. Instead of sleeping in a hotel suite that they most certainly have the budget for though, he’s on his buddy’s couch. His best buddy. The one you’d think would approve of his relationship. But even his best friend thinks his girl is crazy. And understands why he’s decided to hide out, where it’s not so easy for her to find him. Which, apparently, happens all the time. She’s obsessive about calling around, looking for him, haranguing anyone she can to ask where he is, what he’s doing, why he hasn’t texted her back. Two sources confirmed to me that she’s been delayed on set a few times because she’s been shouting down the phone at someone in her trailer, demanding they track him down for her. And so, at a time when they’re supposed to be celebrating, he’s far away, enjoying his freedom for a few weeks. Is this what it’s going to be for a lifetime?

While Lainey doesn’t actually solve her blind items, she does occasionally drop hints in subsequent posts about the identity of the blind item subject! In this case, Lainey posted an article right after Johnny Depp hurt his hand in Australia. From LaineyGossip.com:
Probably just an innocent fall, perhaps while hanging out on the couch with his best friend Marilyn Manson, who’s also been spending time in Australia the last few weeks to play a music festival. I don’t think I could have coughed any louder.
Depp and Manson have been friends for many years. In 2000, Manson said, “Johnny Depp and I, on Y2K, we bought up all the absinthe in Prague when I went there because I thought the world was going to come to an end, just in case.”
Depp and Manson have since been seen together many times. They perform music on stage together, and Depp is working with Manson on Manson’s new album. They were most recently spotted together this January, dropping Depp’s daughter off at school together (before walking away with a marijuana pipe clutched in Depp’s hand).
