Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Johnny Depp Is Completely Innocent

This really hurts. I’ve always loved Johnny Depp‘s movies, because hey, what’s not to love? And when he’s played such wonderful, endearing characters like the ones he played in Benny and Joon, Edward Scissorhands, and Finding Neverland, I think it’s easy to mistake his characters’ good qualities for his own, you know? Because I’ve enjoyed his movies so much, I just assumed that he’s an awesome person who is incapable of doing anything wrong. But right now, at this point in time, I think I’m going to have to guess that he’s kind of a douchebag in real life.

Another story about Johnny’s split from Vanessa Paradis covered Us Weekly this week, and Lainey Gossip was nice enough to summarize it:

According to the magazine:

-V wanted to break up 2 years ago because she was unhappy
-V complained all the time about their low key lifestyle. She didn’t want to stay on a private island and quietly raise their babies. She was bored and restless.
-V was the one who wanted to move to LA and that’s when it all unravelled.
-V was the one who insisted that he make big budget Disney movies because she loved the money. Johnny wasn’t interested but only did them for her.
(Please tell me you’re shaking your head and rolling your eyes now.)
-When those movies became big ass deals, V then resented J for his success.

Says an Us Weekly source:

“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.”

Apparently Johnny is tight with the owner of the magazine, and that’s why they wrote this joke of a story. Because if you’ve been keeping up with Johnny for the past year or so, he’s in the middle of a full blown midlife crisis. He’s made stupid comments, he’s been seen drunkenly stumbling around more than once, and honestly, he just doesn’t look that great these days. And, of course, there are all the rumors of Johnny’s wandering penis. He’s been linked with his Dark Shadows costar, Eva Green, his Rum Diary costar, Amber Heard, an Olsen twin, and also his publicist. But for sure, it’s all Vanessa’s fault. She drove him to all this.

Listen, this is bullshit. I don’t care if Vanessa Paradis screeched in Johnny’s ear about anything and everything for the entire 14 years they were together. She didn’t force him to hook up with other ladies, and she didn’t force him to get wasted and stagger around the streets. That’s all on him. If he wasn’t happy, he could have left, but the “you made me do this to you” argument just gets under my skin so much. Your choices are your own, so be a grown ass adult and stand behind them.

Team Vanessa.

  • I would hate to think you were such a childish person, Miss Emily. I’d like to think you penned this crap just to fire up posters, bloggers, etc. Lainey has been notoriously anti-Johnny for a least a year and US Magazine….really? You pay to see his movies. The characters he invents have nothing to do with what kind of person he is. Case in point: Mr. Rooney from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”….the actor that played his character is a child molester (boys). Johnny hasn’t broken any laws (recently) and I have no idea what kind of person he is and I don’t care. It takes 2 people to make or break a relationship. Both share the blame. Yours Truly–Team Grown-ups

  • I couldn’t disagree with blasted more – I thought this was one of the best articles I’ve read on this site! I couldn’t agree more with you on this one Emily!

  • Yeah! I don’t know why all this blogs believe and reproduce anything that the biased Lainey, post…so what? the woman know the truth about everything…she hates Johnny and may blema him even for polution and global warming!

    The “Us weekly” report doesn’t left Johnny in good light either…so I have a feeling this isn’t from Johnny or his “people”. They’re just making up stuff to have a story because they certainly aren’t getting anything from V and very doubtfully J.

    Where the media lacks sources, they invent them.

  • So with this teory we can blame Vanessa for all the bad press that is getting Johnny after the news of the split? (because if Johnny’s team responsible for this one)

    Nobody knows what really happened between them so I dont understand why everybody is blaming him!

    And aside from the gossip rags spinning their “turn” of events on what happened to break up this relationship, I have heard NOTHING from Depp or Vanessa, or their publicists.

    So take it with a grain of salt, it’s gossip. We have no idea why they split, what the reason, or if he really cheated, or if she was a complaining bitch.

    Until I hear/read something from either of them it’s gossip.

  • I imagine that there were contributing factors on both sides, just like there are in most divorces. I am sad for them both.

  • The person who wrote this story hasn’t read the article

    Well, I read it…and no way on earth this was authorized for Johnny’s PR Team!!

    First: In the article they name his own publicist as one of his possible conquests…how is that possible if his team is behind it?

    And second and most important: The article contains recent paparazzi pictures of his children…Johnny and Vanessa have spent the entire life of these kids, protecting them from the public eye, they would never authorize this!!

  • When a man blames a woman for his mistakes it means he is an abusive type. Doesnt surprise me since Vanessa is scary skinny and look what happen with Kate Moss in the hotel room. Or how messed up Winona was. No this man needs medical help for his head. He has all the signs of an abuser. Some of his tats are to cover his own self abuse.

  • You need to do some research, Swaggy. Firstly, Vanessa models. She is simply a very skinny woman, and was so prior to her relationship with Johnny. Secondly, he never laid a finger on Kate Moss, and the reason for their break-up was none other than the run-of-the-mill work issues. And thirdly, Winona Ryder is simply a strange woman. Her being a little messed up in the head has nothing to do with Johnny.
    Also, it takes two to end a relationship. Who’s to say it was solely one person’s fault? And honestly, it’s none of our business. Let Johnny and Vanessa handle their own lives without the prying eyes of their fans. It’s their business, not ours.

  • This is absolute bull. Johnny and vanessa were the perfect couple in my eyes and would do anything in their power to protect lily rose and jack from the paparazzi. The split could not be entirely vanessa’s fault and as much as it pains me to say if other rumours are true johnny could not be entirely clear of blame. Now i love johnny but as much as i wish it wasnt true i do believe the rumour that they split because johnny cheated on vanessa more than i believe in this shit. Also Johnny has even said himself that that they left france and moved to LA because the frenb wanted him to become a french citizen in order to get him to pay tax and he didnt want to. And another thing johnny has even said that he does movies for his kids so obviously vanessa didnt force him. Sorry for this rant but i hate when people make stories up about these tow
