Johnny Depp Battles Vanessa Paradis Over Lily-Rose Depp: Fears She Will Become Another Lindsay Lohan

Johnny Depp always wanted his family kept far away from the moral swamp that is Hollywood. He lived with Vanessa Paradis and their two children, Lily-Rose Depp, 13, and Jack Depp, 10, quietly and contentedly in the South of France for years.  But some say that Vanessa wanted much more and so insisted on moving with Johnny and the kids to Los Angeles.  In any case, whether it was at Vanessa’s urging or not, the move was a big mistake in terms of the happiness and cohesion of the Depp-Paradis family.

Not only has Johnny boy gone off the rails with his drinking and sleeping around, thereby destroying his relationship with Vanessa, but Lily-Rose is turning into a real wild child!  Apparently Lily-Rose is well on her way to becoming the next Kracken – yes, the once innocent and adorable Lily-Rose is metamorphosing into some scary hybrid of Bobbi Kristina and Lindsay Lohan.  God forbid!

The National Enquirer exposes the story: The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 49, wants to prevent the precocious teen from pursuing a Hollywood ca­reer, sources say, but singer/actress Vanessa, 39, doesn’t agree.

“Johnny still thinks of Lily-Rose as the little 7-year-old that he almost lost to E. coli poisoning, and he’s deeply concerned that Vanessa is letting her run wild,” said an insider.

“He doesn’t want Lily-Rose, or her brother Jack, thinking about anything but school until they’re 18. But Van­essa is letting Lily-Rose explore her creative side by allowing her to wear funky outfits, and she’s schlepping her to acting auditions.

“Vanessa and Johnny have been having screaming matches over Lily-Rose. It’s gotten ugly.”

Depp and Vanessa hooked up in 1998, but never married, and raised Lily-Rose and Jack, 10, at their home in the South of France. Since their split, the actor has been living in Los Angeles while Vanessa is looking for a home in Malibu.

As The ENQUIRER has reported, the French beauty is waging a full-scale palimony battle for her share of Depp’s $350 million fortune, and she’s banned one of his latest girlfriends, bisexual actress Amber Heard, from going near their children.

 “He’s so worried about Lily-Rose that he’s even turned to his good pals Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for advice.

“Johnny knows that if his little girl gets involved in the Hollywood scene, she’s going to grow up a lot faster. And he doesn’t want to see her turn into the next Lindsay Lohan.”

Evidence shows when it comes to the propensity to engage in wild and potentially self-destructive behavior, being a teenager is the single biggest risk factor.  Living in an environment where anything goes and money flows just increases the danger.  Having a father with serious substance abuse issues who can’t stop sleeping around doesn’t help much either.  And when that father is Johnny Depp, one of the most famous Hollywood stars of all time, we have to assume that Lily-Rose is at serious risk.

Are we being too harsh?  Are we being ‘alarmist?’ Well if we look at what happens to many of the children of Hollywood’s elite then the answer is ‘no.’ In this case – despite Johnny’s supposed concern for Lily-Rose, we’d have to say that the example he sets is so bad that he will bear the lion’s share of the blame if things go south for his daughter.  What do you think?

    First give as proof oh his substance abuse or his sleeping around.
    We are still waiting. If Depp was so many problems Vanessa didn’t leave their kids in the USA with him when she spent about half of her time (last 2 years) alone in France. So stop copying every BS from every stupid tabloids.

    Oh! please, stop spreading bullshit…I don’t care what tabloids says about Johnny or Vanessa (even when there are a new interview  of Vanessa where she says exactly that she doesn’t want their children in the showbizz as young as she was…and Johnny always says the same thing) but here is a girl (a 13 years old!!) that doesn’t choose to be the daughter of a mega-star, that you (and me…and probably neither in the Enquirer) know, and you’re criticizing her as she were Paris Hilton o Kim Kardashian!Be respectful with a MINOR for god sake!!

    Vanessa was asked in an interview (with Le Figaro Magazine) how she felt about her kids possibly having a career at a young age because Vanessa herself started at 14 years old. She said-

    “Ça m’émeut de penser à ça. C’était magnifique de vivre cette aventure à 14 ans ; je n’y étais pas préparée, mais c’était très bien comme ça. Et si c’était à refaire, je le referais, car je ne regrette rien. Pour ma fille ou mon fils, c’est différent. Ils ont bien sûr des désirs artistiques mais, connaissant le revers de la médaille, je leur conseillerai de prendre leur temps, ne serait-ce que pour perfectionner leur art et arriver dans la lumière une fois qu’ils seront prêts.”

    Google translates that to this
    “It moves me to think about that. It was wonderful to experience this adventure in 14 years I was not prepared, but it was just fine. And if do it again, I would do, because I have no regrets. For my daughter or my son, it’s different. They of course have artistic desires but, knowing the flip side, I advise them to take their time, even if only to hone their skills and get into the light once they are ready.”

    I don’t think Johnny is setting a bad example for his daughter at all. Thus far, I’ve only heard one story about him drinking since the split with Vanessa and to my knowledge, there have only been reports of him seeing one person since Vanessa which is of course, Amber Heard. I don’t think he’s behaving that scandalously.

    Jody, I usuallly agree with you, but this piece starts out saying Depp is the one who wants to protect his kids from Paradis dragging them into the sleazy world of showbiz before their 18 and ends with saying we should blame him if they turn out bad?  Other articles I’ve read reported Depp would disappear to NY & London during his dark moods to spare the kids from seeing him like that.

    • jody overland

      both are true – johnny wants to protect his daughter from hollywood – but his own behavior serves as a terrible example – there is no contradiction there

    Hopefully this time Johnny gets in a relationship with a woman who would be a good role model for his daughter. VP thinks she’s such an impressive talent that she called another human being “a nobody” and turns her nose up at fans seeking autographs. Her so-called singing career began at 8 thanks to famous relative, she had  a European pop hit at 14, then at 15 starred nude in a movie as a Lolita sleeping with her married 47 yo teacher, while in real life she was sleeping with a 27 yo French singer. That’s why the French spat at her in the street and wrote “whore” on her apt bdg. She’s used one man after another to scratch her way as far as she could go, including now trying to extort as much $$$ as possible from the man who provided her 14 years of intl fame & luxury after she trapped him through pregnancy during a 12 week affair.  Why wouldn’t she want all that for her precious daughter?

    This entire article is knee deep in bs.  Johnny and Vanessa have always protected their children and Johnny does not have a substance abuse problem.

    Wow if Vanessa had taken the last name of Depp if she had married Johnny her initials would have been VD. Ok off subject but sort of funny. I kind of think thier kids are in trouble in Hollywood, most of the major players there are into the occult, Scientology is really O cult. The cults go on from there, and they do freaky things with thier kids and to thier kids. That is why Katie Holms has Suri in New York. I thnk Johnny shows evidence of his varied affiliations. Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones messed with Satanism in the 60’s and beyond? Does anyone listen to the lyrics?With V and D’s kids only time will tell. Yeah Johnny find a nice mature lady to be with and grow up along with your children. Vanessa you can nurture Lillys creativity without pimping her out the way you were.

  • Lauren

    since johnny has split with vanessa there’s been rumors and stories floating around that i just didnt believe, like the amber heard rumors, i doubt that ever happened anyway.

    but looking at their daughter as of late i can see why johnny would get annoyed. because hes always working to support his children and unfortunately that ex he calls the mother of this children, shes been the one raising them most of the time. shes letting her grow up to fast, and looking back at vanessa when she was younger, taking her clothes off at such a young age, i can see why johnny is concerned  i think hes annoyed more than anything because he cant always be there. now they’ve split maybe johnny can grab the reins on their children and steer them in the right direction, because theres no way vanessa can support them, shes done nothing just lately.

    She can’t be all that bad.  She shops at Target.  Leave the kid alone.  She is 13 and entering the teen years which are hard enough.  Sure she’ll rebel a bit.  What teenager doesn’t?  Rag papers don’t know anything but gossip.

  • Mary

    Vanessa recently said in France that Lily Rose likes to sing and Jack to play guitar.  She also said that she would like Lily Rose to live out her childhood as long as possible, so I don’t think she’ll approve of her going to ‘auditions’ etc.  Sorry, but I think The Enquirer have made it all up, as usual.

    DON’T BLAME EVERYTHING ON JOHNNY, IT’S VANESSA WHO IS TO BLAME TRYING TO PUSH LILYROSE INTO THE BUSINESS, JOHNNY JUST WANTS THEM TO CONCENTRATE ON SCHOOL AND HAVING A CHILDHOOD FIRST AND FORMOST, AND IF JOHNNY IS GOING A BIT HAYWIRE YOU CAN’T BLAME FOR WHAT HE’S BEING GOING THROUGH WHAT WITH THE SPLIT AND HIS BELOVED MUM BEING IN HOSPITAL IT’S NO WONDER, SO JOHNNY DON’T WORRY I’M ALWAYS ON YOUR SIDE AND ALWAYS WILL. LOVE YOU BABE , YOUR LINDSEY ANN DEPP FROM WINSFORD CHESHIRE.

    no one can blame johnny for what’s whappening to lilyrose, it;’s vanessa fault, as a kid she was a lolita when she was 14, starring in nude films and sleeping around, what example is she setting lilyrose trying to push her into the acting business, when all johnny wants is for lily and jack to concenrate on their schooling for the time being and have a childhood, if they want to go into yhe business then they would be ready to do so and not be pushed into it by their over zealous and fame hungry mother,

  • CarolinaKate

    Oh, please… She looks just like every other 13-year old in the country. At least her lower garb isn’t falling down below her butt. Get over it.
