Johnny Depp gave his first public interview since Amber Heard accused him of domestic abuse, yet he declined to mention the scandal once.

Depp, 53, appeared on Monday’s episode of the “Jonesy’s Jukebox” radio show in Los Angeles. Rather than address Heard’s claims, he spent the majority of the interview discussing his music career.

“(I’ve been a musician) since I was little — since I was 12 I’ve played,” Depp href=”http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/johnny-depp-interview-amber-heard-allegations-article-1.2691481″ target=”_blank”>said. “I started playing clubs when I was like 13 in Miami.”

The three-time Academy Award nominee said he only began acting to make some quick money, but decided to stick with it after several offers came in and his band broke up.

“It seemed like a good way to pay the rent for a minute,” he said.

Depp has been laying low since Heard filed for divorce in late May and has yet to speak publicly about the breakup or Heard’s accusations.

At the time of her divorce filing, the 30-year-old actress alleged that Depp had physically and emotionally abused her “during the entirety” of their relationship. She also accused Depp of bruising her right cheek after drunkenly heaving a cell phone at her.
