Moreover, Witkin also mentioned that Johnny Depp tried to quit using drugs but he couldn’t. In fact, he even advised Depp to seek therapy. Witkin said “He did it a little bit, but then he stopped because, in my experience, it’s deep-rooted issues that he’s dealt with that has nothing to do with Amber. That’s my opinion,” according to a published report in The News.
Needless to say, Witkins also shared that when he was surprised when he witnesses Johnny Depp used drugs because the actor hated it when they were kids.
