Johnny Depp's teenage son with Vanessa Paradis suffering from 'serious health issues'
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have two kids together, a 19-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and 16-year-old Jack
Johnny Depp's 16-year-old son with Vanessa Paradis is suffering from severe health problems and this resulted in his mother being unable to join her own film's opening night. The 45-year-old French musician and actress was absent from the Paris premiere of her movie "A Knife in the Heart" on Tuesday and, as per the movie's director, Yann Gonzalez, she was with her son Jack Depp.
“Unfortunately, Vanessa Paradis was not able to join us tonight, she had to be absent because of her son’s serious health problems,” the film’s director said at the screening, reported French outlet Public.
Neither Vanessa nor Johnny, 55, have come out in the open or spoken publicly addressing the health condition of their son. The duo used to be a former A-list Hollywood couple and they were together for 14 years from 1998 until 2012. Even though they never married, the two share two kids — 19-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and Jack. They were born in May 1999 and April 2002, respectively.
Jack isn't the only one suffering from health issues, though, as his father is reportedly believed to be ill too. 'The Pirates of the Caribbean' icon recently made headlines after photos of him looking shockingly thin and frail emerged online.
The news that subsequently led fans to worry about his well-being arrived when Johnny was in Europe touring with his band The Hollywood Vampires. For bandmates, Johnny is being accompanied by rock legends like Joe Perry of Aerosmith fame, and Alice Cooper. The band has been globetrotting and has performed in places like Russia and Germany. Fans have expressed concern over how the actor appeared thin while signing autographs outside the Four Seasons Hotel in St Petersburg in Russia earlier this month.
After his divorce from actress Amber Heard, Johnny pretty much sunk into a hole because of the battery and assault issues that the marriage had seemingly become riddled with. Certain media critics have even said that he is going through a spiraling downfall from the uber cool anti-hero that he once was known to be.
The couple married in February 2015 and, in 2016, when Heard filed for divorce, she had said that "he brutalized her and left her in fear of her life." Later on, however, as part of a joint statement, Heard stated: “There was never an intent of physical or emotional harm." It also added that whatever happened was part of a "volatile" bond and, despite that, it was an “intensely passionate relationship, always bound by love.”
Along with that, Johnny is also facing lawsuits from his former bodyguards who accused him of underpaying them with "intolerable" behaviour. They also claim that they have had to babysit Johnny's children since he had "spiraled” into a “financial hurricane.”
