“Johnny considers Marilyn his closest confidant,” an insider dished. “They’ve been best friends for years — and Marilyn stood by his side through every difficult step of his divorce from Amber Heard!”
According to sources, Johnny, 56, constantly turned to the outrageous 50-year-old singer, actor and record producer for support when his public image took a beating from Amber’s charges of brutal spousal and substance abuse.
As National ENQUIRER readers know, Johnny has denied Amber’s allegations. The Cry-Baby star, who did not respond to our request for comment, even charged that she only got a restraining order by “painting on” bruises she claimed came from a physical altercation.
“After all the drama with Amber, Johnny’s keen to be married to someone who can bring some stability to his life, and he’s making no secret of the fact that Marilyn will be repaid for his loyalty by being named his best man,” spilled the insider.
