Celebrity gossip is the currency that fuels the entertainment industry. The latest buzz that caught everyone’s attention was the unlikely pairing of Jenna Ortega and Johnny Depp. The rumor had that despite the gaping age barrier, a plush romance is blooming between the Wednesday star and the legendary Jack Sparrow.
The two actors were thrust into the spotlight due to speculation, and misinformation that they both vehemently denied.
Jenna Ortega, known for her roles in hit series like “You” and “Jane the Virgin,” likes to keep her personal life private. She decided to break her silence on this one. In an Instagram Stories post that has since disappeared, Ortega shared,
“This is so ridiculous I can’t even laugh. I have never met or worked with Johnny Depp in my life. Please stop spreading lies and leave us alone.”
Johnny Depp’s spokesperson also weighed in issuing a statement:
“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 rumors that are intended to harm his reputation and career.”
According to the social media gossip hub Deux Moi, Jenna Ortega and Johnny Depp were spotted on a date. Now, Deux Moi has a disclaimer stating, “this account does not claim information published is based on fact.” If you believed the gossip, it’s on you. The account has gained a massive following, nonetheless.
Jenna Ortega is set to star in the highly anticipated Beetlejuice sequel. It will be a continuation of her collaboration with the iconic director Tim Burton. Burton had directed four of the eight episodes of Wednesday, a show where she positively wowed the audience.
