When Johnny Depp Talked About His 'Abusive' Mother. Said 'She Was Meanest Human Being I've Ever Met'

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp's childhood was challenging, to say the least. His father was "largely absent" and he grew up with mother Betty Sue Palmer and three siblings in Kentucky. While their relationship appeared to improve over time in the later years, they had a tumultuous relationship. In an old interview, Depp had described his childhood as unhappy, recounting irrational beatings and a lack of communication in the household.

In a 2018 interview with Rolling Stone, Depp spoke about his difficult childhood and his late mother, who passed away in 2016.
"My mom was born in a f--ing holler in eastern Kentucky ... Her poor f--ing ass was on phenobarbital at 12," he said.
Recalling the abusive household, he added, "Yeah, there were irrational beatings. Maybe it's an ashtray coming your way. Maybe you're gonna get clunked with the phone. It was a ghost house -- no one talked. I don't think there ever was a way I thought about people, especially women, other than 'I can fix them'."
What Johnny Depp said at his mom's funeral
He also recalled that he bought her a horse farm with his first salary from acting.
During her funeral, Depp had remarked that she was perhaps the meanest person he had ever met. "My mom was maybe the meanest human being I have ever met in my life," he had said.
Seemingly, as Johnny grew up, his relationship with his mother grew stronger for better. They were often photographed smiling together.
