UPDATE: Johnny Depp’s daughter is ill


Johnny Depp’s seven year old daughter Lily-Rose is apparently extremely ill and has been in the hospital for the past nine days, with Depp and his long-time girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, having barely left her side. A source at the hospital says:

“The staff immediately recognised him when he walked through the door. He has not asked for any special favours but just wants the best for his child, like any parent. It is such a difficult time for him but he is hanging in there for the sake of his daughter and the whole family is just praying that she gets better. They are taking each day as it comes. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for all of them and he’s been worrying himself silly. He wouldn’t wish this on anyone and has been finding it hard keeping it together. He’s a devoted dad and is spending as much time as he can with Lily.”

Damn that’s pretty awful. Not much to say here except that I hope she gets better.

UPDATE: Apparently the original cause of Lily-Rose’s illness was an untreated prick by a rusty tack which caused blood poisoning that spread through her body and affected her vital organs. She’s reportedly doing much better now though, which is more than I can say about the last guy I fought in a bare knuckles fighting match. Unless getting beaten to death by fists is considered ‘doing much better.’ Then yeah, I guess he is.
