the start of his defamation trial last month, Johnny Depp said he felt the need to “clear the record” for the sake of his children. Lily-Rose and Jack.
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had two children together before their 2012 divorce. Mr. Depp shows great pride in his children but has intentionally kept his kids away from the public eye. Mr. Depp has expressed in the past that it was important to him and his wife at the time to give their children a choice to be viewed publicly. When their children were young, they opted to raise them in the south of France, and the reason they gave for this choice was that they felt it was easier to remain under the radar in the south of France. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about Jack Depp, Johnny Depp’s son.
Why haven’t we seen Jack Depp very much?
As we previously discussed, Johnny and his ex-wife decided to raise their children in the south of France. For this reason, we don’t have many photos of a young Jack and Lilly rose circulating the internet. When they got older, the family decided to move to California, where both kids began attending school.
As the kids grew and got older, Lilly-Rose, Jack’s older sister, began to pursue a career in acting.While Lily-Rose is well-known to the public thanks to her blossoming acting career and her work as a Chanel brand ambassador, far less is known about her younger brother
Unlike his father, Jack Depp has not voiced an interest in pursuing an acting career. He is a very private young man, and it seems that he plans to keep his life that way. In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Johnny Depp shared, “My boy Jack… draws really super well. He also plays music very well. He’s got a good feel for that.” Mr. Depp has expressed relief with the world when referencing that his son does not show an interest in acting. At one point, he spoke publicly, saying one of his greatest fears in life was that his children would want to pursue a career in acting.
It’s no secret Johnny Depp is a fantastic father. Many of the interviews that have mentioned his children have been about how much he loves watching them grow and is truly inspired by them. One of Mr. Depp’s greatest motivators in the recent Amber Heard trial was reported that he wanted to clear his children from facing these allegations. Mr. Depp voiced on the stand, “I wanted to clear my children of this horrid thing that they are having to read about their father, which was untrue.”
Their mother, Vanessa Paradis, has previously shared that she did her best to keep their children away from the spotlight, telling Weekend Knack: “I indeed keep them away from the cameras, because I don’t want our children to be forced to share in our fame against their will. They didn’t ask for that.”

The Depp family decided to raise their children in the south of France, which means the family is bilingual and fluent in French and English and so both Jack and Lily-Rose speak French which she sweetly revealed they used as a “secret language” when they were at school in America. “When my brother and I were at the same school, whenever we wanted to say something that was going to stay just between us, we could say it in French and nobody would understand,” she told Keira Knightley for Interview magazine.
He had a pretty serious health scare in 2018
In 2018 Vanessa Paradise, Jack’s mother, reportedly missed the premiere of her movie “Knife and Heart” because her son was very sick. The Depp family never made a statement to explain what landed Jack in the hospital. The director Yann Gonzalez told reporters at the time: “Unfortunately, Vanessa Paradis could not join us this evening. She had to be absent because of the serious health problems of her son.”
His relationship with Camille Jansen
It’s been reported that there may have been an intimate relationship between the two. They both seemed to keep things private, but in 2018 Camille made a post on Instagram to share well wishes for her boyfriend’s birthday. A photo of Camille accompanied this post with her hands around Jack. However, a fan commented on the picture asking if the two were still a couple, and Camille responded, saying they were not. Due to the private nature of the two, it is difficult to discern the current state of their relationship. However, it appears they are still friends with one another.
