Last week Johnny Depp made headlines for his very drunken award show speech, and if recent reports are to be believed, then there is some concern for the Transcendence actor's health.

Depp gave an introduction speech at the Hollywood Film Awards last week for Shep Gordon, the subject of the Mike Myers documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, which won the Hollywood Documentary Award.

And the speech was weird: it saw Depp slurring, swaying and looking completely out of it, and while some fans have paid no notice to it because Depp is known for his unconventional ways, others are worried.

And according to Star magazine, via the Hollywood Gossip, the actor's fiancée Amber Heard is one of those people.

Heard and Depp got engaged earlier this year and they seem completely smitten with each other, so it is worrying to know that he may be driving her away because of this.

"This reflects really badly on her, and she's not happy about it," the source claims. "There's chatter in Johnny's camp about rehab. At this point, he's driving everyone — including Amber — away."

An onlooker at the event also revealed to Star magazine that on the night, "Johnny was extremely intoxicated. There were times he had to have someone help him stand. He couldn't say a complete sentence."

This is not the first time that Depp and his drinking have come into question. Last year the actor spoke about his drinking with Rolling Stone magazine, via the Daily Mail, and denied having ever been an alcoholic — but he did admit at the time that he had made a decision to quit drinking.

"I investigated wine and spirits thoroughly, and they certainly investigated me as well, and we found out that we got along beautifully, but maybe too well," he said.

He added, "I don't have the physical need for the drug alcohol. No, it's more my medication, my self-medication over the years just to calm the circus. Once the circus kicks in, the festivities in the brain, it can be ruthless."

Since the night of the awards, Depp has been keeping a low profile and according to the Hollywood Gossip, many believe that Depp may have already checked himself into a rehab facility.
