Johnny Depp’s 7-year-old daughter, who has been receiving treatment in a British hospital, is now “much better,” according to a statement from the star’s publicist on Thursday.
Earlier reports from Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper had indicated that Lily-Rose, the daughter of Depp and Vanessa Paradis, was admitted to the hospital nine days ago and was in a serious condition. The newspaper claimed to know the hospital’s location and the nature of the child’s illness, but chose not to disclose these details to respect the family’s privacy.
Depp’s publicist, Robin Baum, expressed gratitude for the support and requested privacy for the family, while confirming that their daughter’s condition has improved.
Meanwhile, Depp is in the UK filming “Sweeney Todd,” a musical directed by Tim Burton that revolves around the tale of the infamous “demon barber of Fleet Street.”
To maintain privacy, both Johnny and Vanessa have been using a staff entrance to access the hospital and arriving in a blacked-out car for their visits.
In previous interviews, Depp has expressed his unwavering love for his children and his desire to witness their growth and ensure their well-being. Being a father has brought him immense strength, perspective, and joy, making his family his top priority.
