Who Is Polina Glen? New Details About Johnny Depp's New Girlfriend
Entertainment And News

Johnny Depp has been in the spotlight a lot lately — not for his acting chops, but for his relationships. His divorce from Amber Heard was finalized in 2017, and Heard notably donated her $7 million settlement to the ACLU and the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

He subsequently sued Heard in early 2019, seeking $50 million for defamation over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post. But amid their nasty divorce settlement and counter-lawsuits, Depp started a relationship with Polina Glen, young woman from Russia.

The two began dating in March 2018, and had a significant age difference of 32 years. Glen is a former go-go dancer and opened her own dance school, and apparently didn’t even know who Depp was at first. However, other sources say she’s been a huge fan of 21 Jump Street since she was younger.

The dancer and choreographer, from St. Petersburg, Russia, moved to the United States not too long ago, and Depp reportedly met her at a party in Los Angeles. A short time later, the two were living together in his LA mansion after seeing each other for only a few weeks, and rumors swirled that Depp had plans to marry her. 

But though it was his first relationship after his divorce from Heard, it appears the two have broken things off. She was frightened by all the media attention and paparazzi, and has since fled to Russia.

Says a source who is allegedly close to Glen, “Polina hated the attention the relationship was bringing her and found it scary. She’s now keeping her head down in Russia and told Johnny plans to get married were madness.” 

They also added, “His level of celebrity and his ongoing battle with Amber grew too much for her. Johnny has been distracted by his feud with Amber and she didn’t think the time was right for them to commit to anything.”

Sources also claim that Glen had told friends that Depp wanted to meet her parents, Gennady and Irina, who is only four years younger than Depp. “Despite sneers that Polina was only with Johnny for his fame, she kept her head down while living with him, going to her dance choreography job and then back to his house,” an insider said.

Considering the domestic violence allegations against Depp, as well as his lawsuit against his ex-wife, it seems things became too overwhelming for Glen. Perhaps it’s best that she removes herself from the spotlight.
