Johnny Depp’s jealousy over wife Amber Heard’s friend are said to be causing problems in their marriage.
Reports claim the newlyweds have been living separate lives and have not been seen together since their marriage in February.
Adding fuel to this fire was Heard’s solo outing at the premiere of her movie When I Live my Life Over Again while Depp was partying up a storm elsewhere.
But sources close to the couple are pointing their fingers at photographer iO Tillett Wright as the main source of the couple’s conflict.

Wright is an artist, director, photographer and an LGTB activist known for her project “Self Evident Truths,” a series of portraits she has taken of people who have identified themselves as “anything other than 100% straight.”
Wright and the 28-year-old Heard, who is openly bisexual, first became friends in 2012, the same year that she started dating Depp. At one point, Wright even moved into the Alice in Wonderland actor’s guest house at Heard’s insistence.
But the 21 Jump Street hunk isn’t thrilled with his wife’s close friendship with Wright and thinks the two “were spending too much time together for it to be comfortable.” Wright has since moved out of Depp’s house.
Wright and Heard are undeniably close, and the two have been seen out and about in New York recently, appearing at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book event and at the Adderall Diaries after-party.
However, it appears that Depp and Heard also want to put the issues about the state of their marriage to rest as the two arrived in Australia together recently.

Depp and Heard looked happy as they touched down in Brisbane. The couple was holding hands, with Depp’s injured right hand still wrapped in a red bandanna. Eyewitnesses say that the two were still wearing their wedding bands, although Heard’s ginormous engagement ring was noticeably missing.
