It appears that Johnny Depp will do just about anything to please his new wife Amber Heard — and that includes selling off his 156-foot luxury yacht that was named after his former girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. Apparently Amber refused to step a foot on board the yacht because of her jealousy – so Johnny sold it off to the highest bidder.
Dubbed the Vajoliroja after his former love of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, and their kids Lily-Rose, 16, and Jack, 13, the ship, purchased in 2007, was a reminder of the Black Mass lead’s past. “Johnny loved that yacht. But he bought it for Vanessa,” adds the insider. “And Amber is still jealous of her.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean star and the French singer never married, and separated in June 2012. Later that month, Depp confirmed he was dating Heard and the couple wed in February this year.
Heard’s rapport with his brood is smoother sailing, though. When Depp’s band, Hollywood Vampires, played a gig at The Roxy in West Hollywood, Calif., on Sept. 17, the model, 29, hung in the DJ booth with Jack.
“She kept saying how great Jack is,” says a second source. “They have a really good relationship and Amber seems like a good stepmom.”
On a side note, I really can’t wait to see “Black Mass”. I’m super glad that Johnny has stepped away from the wild and funky character acting and has moved back into something real. Will you watch his new flick?
