Johnny Depp has hit back at claims that he is gravely ill.
Fans were shocked when he appeared in Russia looking very thin recently and now he has re-surfaced at Comic-Con in San Diego.
But the 55-year-old has hit back about the fears claiming that it is Amber Heard's accusations that he beat her that have taken a toll on him.
"I'm not sick," he claims as he fights the allegations in court after two Los Angeles cops and his security guards have contradicted her 'phone hitting' account.
Heard, 32, accused him of domestic violence before they split and she claims to have more evidence.
Friends of the actor say that he has struggled to cope with the allegations made by Heard who branded him a 'wife-beater' as pictures showing her with a bruised face circulated on the Internet.
And now Depp is trying to piece his life back together by clearing-up these allegations in court.
The 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star told friends: "I'm not sick. I'm not battling anything, other than the smears that I'm determined to prove are false."
Ironically, both Depp and Heard appeared at Comic-Con in San Diego to promote different projects, however, they stayed well clear of one another at the event.
