Amber Heard Quitting Hollywood After Failed Relationships With Johnny Depp And Elon Musk?

This is a non-story designed to capitalize on Heard’s high-profile splits from Depp and Musk. We’re told there’s no truth to it. On Thursday, Variety reported that Heard has signed on to star in the indie drama Gully. The two have had an on-again, off-again relationship for nearly two years, but they broke up again last month after a brief reunion. And last month, it was announced that Heard had nabbed the lead role in the romantic thriller Run Away With Me. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. Shortly after the actress’s divorce from Depp in 2016, RadarOnline’s sister outlet, Star, wrongly reported that she was pregnant with the actor’s baby, which would result in a nasty battle over money and custody. A so-called “source” tells the website, “Amber is really homesick these days… She still has a ton of normal friends back in Texas who don’t ask her about Johnny Depp or Elon Musk every five seconds.” The questionable insider further contends that Heard is also getting sick of making movies, adding that “her grueling dieting and workout regime for Aquaman” took a toll on her well-being. Heard’s 15-month marriage to Depp ended in 2016 with allegations of domestic abuse. The actress then began dating Musk shortly after the split. According to RadarOnline, Heard is tired of the drama surrounding famous men and she wants to leave Los Angeles and move back home to Texas. Clearly, she’s not leaving the film industry. The actress will also be promoting Aquaman when the movie hits theaters in December. Regardless of any problems the actress may experience in her love life, those issues aren’t impacting her career. Unfortunately for the unreliable blog, the timing of this story is very poor. “She’s aching to be a regular person again,” adds the supposed tipster. Obviously, there wasn’t a shred of truth to the story. Friday, March 30, 2018

DRAKE – Sacrifices lyrics

Wrote this shit, January 21
Baby girl, I had to run, I be back a couple months
Kendall turned 21, was up the street with 21
They could see me online but they won’t see me on the ones
I got Dubai plates in the California state
I got her waitin’ at my place, I got no baby on the way
I’m talkin’ Baby like Stunna, I’m talkin’ Baby like Face
Lost millions in the past, I’m talkin’ maybe like 8
Couple niggas run the city, wishin’ on a star could maybe like Drake
Sorry no, not today, you gotta find your own way
Big dog from the 6, I’m talkin’ Dogg like Nate
My shit be roll out the gate, I don’t need another take
40 got house on the lake, I ain’t know we had a lake
She complainin’ how I’m late, I ain’t know it was a date
Niggas see me in person, first thing they say is, “I know you need a break”
Hell naw, I feel great, ready now, why wait?
Like a kiss from a rose, I could be the one to seal your whole fate
So be careful what you think, think about what you gon’ say
Gotta deal with people straight, I got my 23s laced
It’s a marathon, not a sprint, but I still gotta win the race, yeah

And I’m convinced
I made sacrifices, I been ballin’ ever since
We seein’ so many blessin’s, this shit don’t make no sense
Someone watchin’ over us, so shot goes out to him
Yeah, I’m convinced
I made sacrifices, I been ballin’ ever since
Yeah, I did some wrong, I had no choice in my defense
Someone watchin’ over us, so shot goes out to

2 Chainz, I’m a real one
Few shows, that’s a mil run
When she bust it down, I said thanks for givin’ to me like a pilgrim
Cold world, I be chillin’
Elon Musk on the children
Used to trap out the Hilton
Got wood on the Cartiers, that’s a face full of splinters
Count a bankroll for dinner
This the wrong place to enter
Throwin’ sigs, yeah, for breakfast
All kinda women text us
Met her at the Super Bowl, told her I stayed down the street from Texas
A-Town, I stay down
Yeah, it’s all in the Ritz
This one here out the fence
Trap jumpin’ like the Carter
[?] jumpin’ like Vince
Moved on from election
Introduced her to the plug, can’t believe they tried to take the connection
Ooh, girl, you a blessin’
Fine ass, be finessin’
Yeah, I love my fans but I don’t wanna take pictures in the restroom
Dreads god with the 6 god
Point guard and the 2 guard
Pretty girls like trap music so I woke up with my wood hard

And I’m convinced
I made sacrifices, I been ballin’ ever since
We seein’ so many blessin’s, this shit don’t make no sense
Someone watchin’ over us, so shot goes out to him
Yeah, I’m convinced
I made sacrifices, I been ballin’ ever since
Yeah, I did some wrong, I had no choice in my defense
Someone watchin’ over us, so shot goes out to

I was stealing from a bitch, back when I was 21
My favorite gun was a sig, 20 in the clip, had 1
Growin’ up, I was a runnin’ back, you never made me ran once
I got shot, sweat startin’ runnin’, that shit was real like [?]
I’m kickin’ pimpin’ like I punt, but don’t you think shit’s sweet
I’m talkin’ sweet, them meek, I’m talkin’ sweet like he sleep
We ain’t doin’ too much talkin’, I’m come out talkin’ like a speech
Like the President, I kill a meet, I’m talkin’ meet like freak
I’m talkin’ meek like fleek, I’m talkin’ meek like a geek
You come with beef, I eat the beat
I’m talkin’ beats, spellin’ B
Double R, that’s a Rolls
Paint it yellow like it’s there
I’m talkin’ Rolls like Derek
I’m talkin’ Rolls like a Bentley
Like a new car, I got 2 keys
Tryna score the bucket like a Chevy C
Then I heard they been pullin’ all week
I’ma use a name like who is he, you get it?
I said I’ma use a name like who is he
Got some gold on, that [?]
Deep sleep for deceased
Big bezel on the pati’, I’m talkin’ pati’, I mean panic
Don’t try to take it, I got guns
I’m talkin’ guns, not pellets
I watch the game from the floor
I’m talkin’ wood, first mattress
I’m talkin’ wood, pants down
I’m talkin’ woods like them clowns
I got my mean off a monkey
I’m talkin’ monkey like jumanji
All your diamonds partly sunny
I’m talkin’ sunny like the sunny
My diamonds wet, it cost me money
