Johnny Depp warns of imposter accounts on social media
Johnny Depp has warned his fans to be wary of “fake accounts” impersonating him on social media.
In a cryptic Instagram story post on Sunday, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor wrote: “I have been made aware that there are fake accounts pretending to be me or people who work with me.
“I don’t have a private or side account on any platform. These are the only pages operated by me and my team where we share updates and communicate,” he added, listing his accounts on various social media platforms.
“I ask you to be careful as it seems that these fake accounts can be brutal. My team is working to combat the problem. Thank you for your continued support and for letting me know about this issue! Love & Respect, JD X.’

Depp, who recently won his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard, gave no further explanation.
In recent days, Depp has been on the road performing with legendary musician Jeff Beck and celebrating the outcome of his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife.
On Sunday, the two performed at the Helsinki Blues Festival in Finland, where Depp surprised fans with a clean-shaven appearance.
It came just days after Heard doubled down on her abuse allegation in an explosive interview — the same allegations that saw her owe Depp more than $8 million in damages, which she says she can’t afford.
Heard, 36, spoke to NBC’s Dateline in a chat first aired in its entirety Friday, telling Savannah Guthrie that she was “terrified” to tell her side of the story.
In the interview, Guthrie pointed out that Heard is the only woman who has come forward with allegations of abuse against Depp.
Amber Heard, 36, spoke to NBC’s Dateline in a chat first aired in its entirety Friday (above) and told Savannah Guthrie she was “terrified” to tell her side of the story.

She wondered why no one else would have spoken out if they had undergone the same violent treatment that she claims to have.
Heard responded, “Look what happened to me when I came forward. Would you?’
During the defamation trial, Kate Moss came forward to defend her ex-boyfriend, whom she dated from 1994 to 1998.
She dealt a sensational blow to his ex-wife Heard by flinching over the actress’s claim that Depp once pushed his supermodel ex down a flight of stairs.
During Heard’s testimony, the actress referred to allegations that Depp once pushed Moss down a flight of stairs – but according to the testimony Moss gave in support of Depp, the actor helped her after she accidentally slipped.
Heard made the claim while discussing an argument she allegedly had with Depp at the top of a flight of stairs, when she said her sister, Whitney Heard, stepped between them.
During the defamation trial, Kate Moss (pictured) took to the stands to defend her ex-boyfriend, with whom she was in a relationship from 1994 to 1998.
Heard told the court: “She threw herself into the line of fire. She tried to make Johnny stop. She stood with her back to the stairs and Johnny waves at her. I don’t hesitate and wait – I immediately think of Kate Moss and stairs. And I waved at him.’
Moss said during her testimony that Depp never “pushed or threw her down a flight of stairs,” in fact, she said he nursed her after she tripped during a trip they took to Jamaica together.
Heard also said she was injured by the “hate and vitriol” directed against her, but she did not regret taking the case.
“I know the scariest, most intimidating thing for someone who talks about sexual assault is to be disbelieved, called a liar or humiliated,” she said.
Heard said she didn’t speak out because she was “vengeful.”
“This would be a very bad way to get revenge,” she said.
“As crazy as it is to say this out loud, my goal is – I just want people to see me as a person.”
