Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Gray claims ex-fiancé Johnny Depp was ‘crazy jealous and paranoid’

Dirty dancing Star Jennifer Gray has been reflecting on her brief engagement to Johnny Depp.

The couple met after Grey’s agent put her on a blind date with the Pirates of the Caribbean Actors in 1989 – two years after the release of Dirty dancing.

She described their first date and wrote them in her memoir out of the corner: “We ate, talked, drank Jack Daniel’s, laughed our ass off, took cigarette breaks in between. He was so incredibly beautiful. And surprisingly open, funny, quirky and sweet…”

She said that within two weeks of meeting, Depp proposed to her and they had a Pekingese Poodle puppy named Lulu. “She was our practice baby and someone who kept me company when Johnny was out of town,” Gray wrote.

Gray wrote: “Johnny commuted back and forth from Vancouver every week, but found himself getting into trouble with increasing frequency: fights in bars, skirmishes with cops.

“He had started missing his flights to LA because he overslept, or when he came home he was insanely jealous and paranoid about what I had been doing while he was away. I put his bad mood and dissatisfaction down to feeling miserable and powerless to get away [the TV series] 21 Jump Street.”

She called off her engagement to Depp just before she turned 29th Birthday after going to a meeting and not returning or contacting her for many hours.

The Independent has reached out to Depp’s rep for comment.

Elsewhere in her memoir, which was published Tuesday, May 3, Gray wrote about her botched rhinoplasty, which she got shortly after her split from Depp.

Depp is currently in the middle of the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

The actor claims Heard implied he abused her in 2018 Washington Post Commentary on domestic violence.

Heard, in turn, has filed a countersuit, accusing Depp of allegedly staging a “defamation campaign” against her and calling his lawsuit a continuation of “abuse and harassment.” She has asked for $100m (£78m) in damages, as well as immunity from Depp’s claims.

Depp’s four-day statement ended on Monday (April 25), during which the actor claimed, “The only person I’ve ever abused in my life is myself.”
