The Hollywood Vampires’ European tour wrapped up two weeks ago, and Johnny Depp‘s still not stateside.
So what’s he been doing? Well, the actor has been chilling out at his private island in the Bahamas, letting his lawyer Laura Wasser deal with his divorce troubs. His ex Vanessa Paradis and kids Lily-Rose and Jack are due to visit soon, so it feels like he’s not going to be back to LA, and is just going to hang by the pool until the drama dies down.
“He has no plans to return to L.A.,” a source tells PEOPLE of the actor. “He misses nothing about L.A. but his kids, and they are visiting him in the Bahamas.” According to the source, his daughter Lily-Rose Depp, 17, has already visited him on the island, and his son Jack, 14, is expected to arrive with his mother, Vanessa Paradis, in a few days.
“Having his kids around is always great for him. He has really missed his kids,” the source says, adding that Depp has also had friends “flying back and forth for visits” to the island. “He likes being surrounded by people and everyone is trying to cheer him up.”
The actor has been staying on the island since concluding the European half of his tour with his band, The Hollywood Vampires. Depp avoided making a return to L.A. when a hearing to extend Heard’s temporary restraining order was pushed to August.
“Johnny was very nervous about the court date,” the source says. “He really didn’t want to return to L.A. for court. He was very relieved that his lawyer was able to figure things out for now.”
According to the source, Depp hopes to settle the divorce out of court. “He doesn’t talk badly about Amber and just wants to move on,” the source adds. Depp will return to the U.S. in July to continue his concert tour with The Hollywood Vampires. “He seems excited about the concerts,” says the source.
Clearly, Johnny Depp just wants to settle up and move ON. I love how People paints him as this kindly older victim, which doesn’t ring true to me. I think Amber is going to get everything she wants and honestly, good on her. Johnny- get some help with your anger management, and then come at the public with something we can respect.
