To say that Johnny Depp has been through a lot lately would be the understatement of the decade, just like his legal dispute with his ex-wife Amber Heard. With court hearings broadcasted all over the world, and millions of audiences tuning in to watch the progression of the case was something that had never been seen before. Many supporters from within the industry and beyond came to his rescue, and in the end, the judge gave the verdict that all the Depp supporters wanted to hear from the start. Thus, as he won the case, Hollywood is finally ready to welcome the star in its midst once again.
But apart from a few close friends and witnesses, we haven’t really heard much of the opinions from Johnny Depp’s close family about the lawsuit.
But recently, Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of Depp and his ex Vanessa Paradis, has come out and given acknowledgment about her father’s infamous court case and stated why she chose to remain silent during all the commotion that surrounded it.
Lily-Rose Depp Shares Reason For Silence On Johnny Depp/Amber Heard Case
It’s not easy being a celebrity child, especially when it’s Johnny Depp, who has been a part of a controversial legal dispute that had gone out of control so badly that the whole world is either against them or with them. A similar experience can be recalled by Depp’s 23-year-old daughter Lily-Rose, who was born to his ex Vanessa Paradis.
Recently in a conversation with Elle, where she was interviewed about her upcoming HBO series The Idol, a nagging question pertaining to her father’s infamous legal spat with his ex-wife Amber Heard came into the fray. Lily-Rose had been famously hush-hush about her own opinions and verdicts when it came to the infamous case previously. But during the interview, she opened up, revealing why she has been silent all this time and what she thought about the whole fiasco. She said:
“When it’s something that’s so private and so personal that all of a sudden becomes not so personal… I feel really entitled to my secret garden of thoughts.”
She also added:
“My parents protected my brother [Jack] and me from it as much as possible. I know my childhood didn’t look like everybody’s childhood, and it’s a very particular thing to deal with, but it’s also the only thing that I know.”
She revealed that this case, which was supposed to remain a private affair, became so public that it would’ve just swallowed up anyone’s life who might have been directly involved in it, especially someone as close as a family member, which was her reason to remain silent.
What Is Lily-Rose’s Upcoming Show The Idol?
Lily-Rose is all set to play the lead role in the upcoming HBO series The Idol, which stars her and Abel Tesfaye, a.k.a The Weeknd, who is also the creator of the series. The story is set in the Hollywood Music industry and depicts the events of what happens when a self-help guru of a modern-day cult falls in love with a young pop idol who is upcoming in the industry.
The Idol will be available on HBO and HBO Max from 2023.
