NBA Player Miles Bridges Changes Profile Picture To Johnny Depp Amid Domestic Violence Case

Atlanta Black Star reported that Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges is in hot water again after he decided to use Johnny Depp for his social media profile photo amid pending domestic violence charges.

The power forward turned himself in to authorities on Oct. 13 for violating a standing protection order, misdemeanor child abuse, and injury to personal property. However, Bridges first decided to position himself alongside the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who infamously faced off against his ex-wife Amber Heard for alleged abuse.

The young player allegedly threw billiard balls at Mychelle Johnson’s car while his young children were inside, causing her windshield to break and denting the vehicle. Bridges is also accused of verbally threatening Johnson during the altercation. He was released on a $1,000 bond.

According to Fan Nation, the 25-year-old player allegedly assaulted his ex-wife in front of the couple’s children.

Alongside photos of her injuries, Johnson shared a screenshot of a medical exam that detailed she’d suffered “assault by strangulation, brain concussion, closed fracture of the nasal bone, contusion rib” as well as “multiple bruises” and “strain of neck muscle.”

The exam names the source of her injuries as an “adult victim of physical abuse by [a] male partner.”

Johnson released alleged proof of her injuries to combat rumors that she was attempting to railroad the promising career of a young NBA star.

“I hate that it has come to this, but I can’t be silent anymore. I’ve allowed someone to destroy my home, abuse me in every way possible and traumatize our kids for life. I have nothing to prove to the world, but I won’t allow anyone who could do something so horrible to have no remorse and paint a picture of something I’m not,” she said alongside the post.

Currently, Bridges is serving a suspension from the NBA following a June incident involving the mother of his children.
