Ever since Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation lawsuit begin this year in April, all these eight months, there were numerous controversies made quite stir on social media. Whether Johnny Depp fan or not, people were quite interested in the lawsuit and kept themselves updated till the end.
As we all know, Johnny Depp had filed a defamation lawsuit of $50 million against ex-wife Amber Heard for lying and projecting him as physical abuser to The Washington Post newspaper on their personal opinion article. Though after two months of legal fight till June, Amber Heard lost the case and now she has been ordered to reimburse Depp $10 million by the jury.
During those two months, people had flooded sharing their opinion on social media and have immensely supported Depp unconditionally. People had also flooded sharing hate comments about Heard and also roasted her by making mimicry videos of her.
The interesting part is, Depp’s family have neatly maintained silence all these months and not entertained any media interviews, till now. But recently, Johnny Depp’s daughter, Lilly-Rose Depp, the 23-year-old actress, has finally broke her silence during an interview with Elle. Not only about the Depp-Heard controversy, but she has also opened up about being tagged as ‘nepo kid’, ‘the idol star’, etc.
Lilly said to Elle, “When it’s something that’s so private and so personal that all of a sudden becomes not so personal, I feel really entitled to my secret garden of thoughts. I also think that I’m not here to answer for anybody and I feel like for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that’s my family members or my boyfriends, whatever. And I’m really ready to be defined for the things that I put out there.”
Lilly also talked about how her parents, Johnny and Vanessa Paradis tried their level best to give her and her brother, Jack Depp a healthy lifestyle with proper privacy. She further added, “I know my childhood didn’t look like everybody’s childhood and it’s a very particular thing to deal with, but it’s also the only thing that I know.”
While talking about ‘nepo kid’ and ‘the idol star’ taglines, Lilly shared that how particularly people address these to women. She said, “It just doesn’t make any sense. If somebody’s mom or dad is a doctor, and then the kid becomes a doctor, you’re not going to be like, ‘Well, you’re only a doctor because your parent is a doctor.’ It’s like, ‘No, I went to medical school and trained’.”
