There has been ongoing rumours for the past few weeks that Hollywood actor Johnny Depp and 'Wednesday' actress Jenna Ortega are dating. It all started when a gossip account, Deuxmoi, reported that Depp and Ortega had been seen together on a date, and the website also claimed that the two actors could possibly be working on 'Beetlejuice 2' together. It cannot go unnoticed that Depp is 60 while Ortega is 40 years Depp’s junior.

Now reacting to the rumours, Ortega has set the record straight about being in a relationship with the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' actor. “This is so ridiculous I can't even laugh,” Ortega wrote on her Instagram Story, adding, "I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone (sic)."

In 2022, Jenna Ortega rose to international fame after starring as Wednesday Addams in the Netflix horror comedy series 'Wednesday'. She was even nominated at the Golden Globe, Primetime Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Awards for her performance.

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp too denied the rumours in a statement issued through a representative. The statement read, "Mr Depp has no personal or professional relationship with Ms. Ortega whatsoever. He has never met her or spoken to her. He is not involved in any project with her, nor does he intend to be. He is appalled by these baseless and malicious rumours that are intended to harm his reputation and career.”

For the unversed, Depp has been the centre of attention ever since his famous defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard. He won the lawsuit he had filed against his ex-wife Amber for defaming him in a 2018 Washington Post article.

Meanwhile, it was in 2016 that Heard filed for divorce and alleged that Depp had physically abused her under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Their divorce was finalised in 2017, and Johnny Depp later sued Amber Heard for defamation because of an op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018.
