Grapevine: Amber Heard covers People magazine

Magazine shows pictures of bruised Heard

Amber Heard alleged that Johnny Depp abused her during their marriage, and now People magazine has photos of a bruised Heard with injuries she says were caused by the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor. People’s cover line reads “Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: Inside their toxic marriage,” with a photo that shows Heard with a bruised eye and a cut lip. In court documents filed last week, Heard alleged Depp had been verbally and physically abusive to her during the “entirety” of their four-year relationship. Reps for Depp did not respond to People’s request for comment.

Kristen Bell reveals depression issues

Huntington Woods’ own Kristen Bell is opening up about her struggles with depression. “I didn’t speak publicly about my struggles with mental health for the first 15 years of my career. But now I’m at a point where I don’t believe anything should be taboo,” the actress writes in a first-person piece in Time. Bell (“Veronica Mars,” “Frozen”) says she was first hit with depression while studying at New York University and continues to deal with it. “For me, depression is not sadness. It’s not having a bad day and needing a hug. It gave me a complete and utter sense of isolation and loneliness. Its debilitation was all-consuming, and it shut down my mental circuit board. I felt worthless, like I had nothing to offer, like I was a failure.” She says her intent in opening up is to broaden the discussion about the issue “and cast some light on a dark situation,” she says.

Detroit officially has a date with Axl/DC. The Axl Rose-fronted incarnation of AC/DC will perform at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Sept. 9, promoters announced Wednesday. Tickets for the show, ranging from $75 to $139.95, are on sale now. The concert is a makeup date for a planned March concert with AC/DC that was scrapped when frontman Brian Johnson was forced to stop touring due to a sudden bout of hearing loss.

The AC/DC show is one of just 10 U.S. dates that will feature Rose on vocals.
