"Vanessa started to feel like she'd sacrificed her career for his," a friend told Us Weekly, adding that Johnny was frustrated too. "Nothing Johnny did was ever good enough for Vanessa. When he was working, she wasn't happy. And when he wasn't working, he was called a slob for not doing enough for the kids and her family."
The friend said Vanessa would take her frustrations out on Johnny and he “started to drink heavily.”
