(Newser) – Johnny Depp and Amber Heard married in February 2015 and were ready to split up by May of the same year—but in order to avoid "the embarrassment of a three-month marriage," they agreed to give it a year before throwing in the towel, sources tell Page Six. Heard, 30, is "really young and affected by the industry and 'the scene' at times," says one source. "Don't get me wrong; she's a cool chick, but Johnny [who is 52] doesn't tolerate that." Interestingly, Depp himself addressed the length of the marriage in a statement issued Thursday, the Telegraph reports: "Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation, and lies about his personal life," it says. "Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."

So, if things have been on the rocks for a year, does that mean they made that awkward dog apology video together begrudgingly? It would seem so. The video "made [Depp] look so stupid and it was her fault," adding to their marriage troubles, another source tells Page Six. One of the Sun's sources echoes that: "Johnny felt humiliated by the whole ordeal and believes Amber made him look like a fool. It just doesn't fit with his serious image and he hated being mocked. The dogs are Amber's so she should really have done the thorough checks." There are so many more amusing quotes where those came from, with sources also claiming "party girl" Heard was annoyed to have ended up with Depp at a "boring," not to mention what the Sun calls a "portly," time of his life. Plus, some sources are saying Depp's family never liked Heard.
