In this blog post, we will be looking through Amber’s personal life and especially we will be focusing and uncovering all the facts or details we have on her parents David Clinton Heard and Patricia Paige.
Amber’s father David was an alcoholic
When Amber’s ex-husband Johnny Deep had a defaming case against The Sun many inside details were published about Johnny’s relation with Amber and her parents. Amber also commented on Johnny saying that he is a far worse abuser than her father was when they were on Intoxication.
In 2013 Amber said that Johnny suspected that Amber was cheating on him with her former boyfriend and he went on a debauch of alcohol and cocaine for many hours. She also revealed that her father was a drunkard and used to abuse her mother but she added that Johnny’s abuse was so worse that her father’s abuse would not even look like abuse.
“Despite my father being violent to my mother, they were very close… Johnny makes my dad look like a saint when he falls off the wagon. His whole life, my dad dealt with issues related to alcohol abuse. “He was a violent addict, but I love him very much.” She told ET Canada.
Her Mother Patricia Paige helped her after she got a restraining order against Johnny
After Amber accused Johnny of physical and verbal abuse she filed for divorce from him and also got a restraining order against him in 2016. Few years after the accusation Amber’s mother said to Johnny that she (Amber) did not want to file but her lawyer insisted and made her do so. She also said in the message that she loves Johnny.
“Her lawyer told her that it was her only option to not being kicked out. It’s not that I’m making excuses, but she believed that. It wasn’t her desire to do so. Despite the fact that the lawyers told her so, she felt she is betraying her one true love. If you ever speak with her again, please do not pass this on. I love you, son.” She said in the message.
Johnny also talked with Amber’s father David the same night through message and David also repeated the same thing as his wife Patricia saying that Amber’s lawyers were the ones that insisted to file the divorce and restraining order and Johnny replied that he still loved Amber but her action hurt him and he was disappointed.
“Dude, I still have my fuc**** wedding ring on my finger. Due to my love for her, I have not removed it. I’m taking it off now. I’m so disappointed and hurt. What a fuc**** knife in the back”, He told David.

“My mom, Paige Heard, passed away last week, and I’m devastated beyond belief. Her beautiful, gentle spirit left us too soon, leaving behind a beautiful, sorrowful memory. From the very depth of our hearts, she will be missed forever. A beautiful woman in all possible ways, she had an unflinching heart. I regret that it is hard to imagine and even worse to say, but I feel blessed to have been her daughter and had the light and love that she shined on everyone, fall upon me for nearly 34 years. In the midst of such an unbelievably painful time, I am reminded of the fact that love survives us all. I have been utterly overwhelmed by the kindness, support, and generosity my sister Whit and I have received from family and friends.” She wrote in the caption.
During the month of October 2020, a day after Patrica’s birthday, Amber updated her followers on her healing process through her Instagram account to tell her fans that she misses her mom very much.
“Yesterday was my mother’s birthday. It’s said the first birthday is the hardest. Even if that is true, I will never be able to lessen how much I miss her. Dedicated to all mamas out there.” She wrote in the caption.
