Polina Glen, 24, found the attention surrounding her relationship to Johnny Depp ‘scary’ and has ended their relationship
She’s the leggy Russian go-go dancer who found love with Johnny Depp despite being less than half his age.
But now Polina Glen, 24, has ended her relationship with the 56-year-old Hollywood superstar and fled back to her homeland after finding the attention surrounding her ‘scary’, according to friends.
When the story of their affair was first reported earlier this year, pictures emerged showing a striking Ms Glen – then just 17 – dancing on a bartop in a St Petersburg club.
Her relationship with Depp is said to have been formed as he was recovering from his tumultuous marriage to actress Amber Heard and subsequent divorce. The divorce was finalised in January 2017 but Depp has since been locked in legal disputes with his ex over allegations of abuse in the marriage. It had been said that Depp and Ms Glen were even considering getting married after she moved into his mansion in Hollywood after just a few weeks.
But now any thought of a wedding has been dismissed by Hollywood sources. One close insider said: ‘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.’
The dancer reportedly told pals weeks into their relationship that Depp was desperate to meet her father Gennady and her veterinarian mother Irina – who is four years younger than him.
The insider said: ‘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.
‘His level of celebrity and his ongoing battle with Amber grew too much for her.

Depp agreed to pay Heard (pictured in 2015) £5.6billion following their separation and she said she would donate this to two charities
‘Johnny has been distracted by his feud with Amber and she didn’t think the time was right for them to commit to anything.’
Polina is thought to have spent the spring and part of the summer moving between Johnny’s Hollywood home and Russia but has now returned home ‘for the foreseeable future’, according to the source.
After Depp and Heard separated, he agreed to pay her £5.6 million, which she said she would donate to two charities.
