Johnny Depp Flees LA, Gets Support From Daughter & Disney

by at .

Like the swaggering pirate he so memorably portrayed, Johnny Depp might be wondering where the rum is these days.

The answer? In the Caribbean, of course.

Johnny Depp: Drunk?

According to several sources, Depp has been riding out his divorce from Amber Heard at his private island in the Bahamas.

"He has no plans to return to L.A.," a source close to Depp tells People magazine.

"He misses nothing about L.A. but his kids, and they are visiting him in the Bahamas."

We suppose there are worse places to be self-exiled.

The magazine states that Depp is currently being visited by his 17-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose.

His son 14-year-old son, Jack, is expected to arrive with his mother, Vanessa Paradis, sometime this week.

"Having his kids around is always great for him. He has really missed his kids," the insider adds.

"He likes being surrounded by people and everyone is trying to cheer him up." 

As you've likely heard, Depp has been accused of assault by his estranged wife.

Heard has been granted a temporary restraining order, and she and Depp are reportedly on the verge of reaching a divorce settlement.

Heard's allegations have called into question the future of Depp's career, but it seems the actor needn't worry about his most lucrative properties.

Disney - who, as the studio behind the Pirates of the Caribbean and the live-action Alice in Wonderland franchises is as responsible for Depp's career renaissance as anyone - basically confirmed this week that it has no plans to cut ties with the actor, despite his recent legal troubles.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that he is "not worried" about Depp's "personal problems."

Asked if he believes the current controversy will pass, Iger responded:

"I don’t know whether it passes or not. We have Jack Sparrow."

Asked if he thinks people will separate the actor from his most famous character, Iger responded, "Right."

So it sounds like Depp can do no wrong in the eyes of those in his inner circle.

The question now is - will the movie-going public be as forgiving?
