Johnny Depp has gone from one of the world’s biggest stars to one of its quietest after a series of legal battles and his extremely messy divorce from Amber Heard. One report says that he’s on a downward slide to ruin. Here’s what we know.
Johnny Depp Needs Help
“Johnny’s A Skin & Bones Strummer” shouted one headline in the National Enquirer. According to the outlet, “shocking photos of swashbuckling train wreck Johnny Depp” make it look a whole lot like he’s “on his last voyage!” Depp was apparently looking quite haggard at a charity appearance, which was part of his plans to “revamp his battered image” after his disastrous legal battles with ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, “reports of his boozing with the boys in his band” have spread like wildfire, and recent appearances even has some wondering if he’ll ever make it out of his tailspin. “He was gulping booze during the event from a coffee cup,” a source revealed. “His security guys had to keep him steady on his feet!”
What’s Going On With Johnny Depp?
This report came out months ago and referred to a January 2020 performance as evidence that Depp was looking skeletal. While it is true that the past few years have been hard on him — and that his legal battles are far from over — we don’t think the Enquirer is being honest here. Johnny Depp looks about the same as usual. Photos of him from that same month feature him looking healthy, so we have no idea what the tabloid was worried about.
Between the pandemic and his lawsuits, it’s no real surprise that Johnny Depp has been out of the spotlight. However, he seems to be doing just fine. He’s done a little bit of promotion for one of his recent films, and his career doesn’t look like it’s over. These sorts of rumors are extremely common for the Waiting for the Barbarians actor. Our top Johnny Depp story from all of last year was one about how he’d certainly be dead by Christmas. He’s got an unconventional lifestyle, sure, but we doubt he’s ready to keel over out of nowhere.
There’s History Here
The Enquirer absolutely loves ragging on the actor, and it shows in its past reporting about Depp. Even years ago, the tabloid made up a story about Depp refusing to do any interviews to avoid any questions about his ex-wife despite the fact that he’d already done a number of interviews already, as well as reporting that he was feuding with Disney bigwigs after they cast Amber Heard in a live-action Tangled. Unsurprisingly, there wasn’t even another Tangled movie in the works and the whole tale was false.
It also declared that he was ruined for good after losing in court back in November, and it confidently asserted that he’d never get another job after the allegations first surfaced. The tabloid loves speculating about Depp’s future, but it hasn’t gotten it right yet.

Kim Kardashian paid tribute to Israeli fashion designer Alber Elbaz, who died of COVID-19 at age 59, calling him a "sweet soul."
"Sweet @alberelbaz8," wrote the 40-year-old SKIMS founder in a Sunday Instagram post. "When I heard the news of his passing today my heart broke. My first time to Paris I was surprised with a lunch with Alber and I almost fainted when he walked in. He was the most warm and welcoming."
According to the New York Times, Elbaz, who served as Lanvin's fashion director for 14 years, died on Saturday in Paris, France from COVID-19, only months after launching a new women's label called AZ Factory. “I asked myself, ‘If I was a woman, what would I want?’” Elbaz told the Times of his inspiration. “Something that is first comfortable. Something fun. Something that lets me eat a big piece of cake. That allowed me to do something very simple. The most simple thing I ever did. I was really scared.”
Kardashian revealed that she had been dressed by Elbaz for her first U.S. Vogue cover in 2014, on which she appeared with her now-estranged husband Kanye West. "[He] gifted me with the cover dress to hold onto that memory forever," the reality star wrote. "Then Alber and Lanvin dressed me to the first Met Ball I was invited to on my own. Our fittings were filled with laughs and hugs! What a sweet soul. I will cherish all of our memories forever." For that event, Kardashian wore a blue-and-black Lanvin dress with a black satin belt.
Other notable names chimed in — Katie Holmes recalled that Elbaz had doted on her daughter Suri Cruz, 15. "He was so very kind to my daughter and me," she wrote on Instagram. "And full of joy. He made people feel so special. I am so grateful to have had the experiences I did have with him. May he Rest In Peace."
And Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker captioned a photo of gifts from the designer. "A tiny portion of keepsakes I have kept from @alberelbaz8," she wrote. "He always left little notes inside parcels. I have saved these and every box, container and pin he ever sent my way. And more importantly, innumerable memories. Treasures ever more so dear." Parker added, "@alberelbaz8 inspired, loved and brought joy to every occasion. Godspeed and RIP."
Actress Amy Sedaris commented on SJP's post, "I was thinking of your necklaces this morning, I remember you always wearing one of his."
And Stella McCartney shared a selfie of the pair writing of Elbaz, "He was a light like no other in the world. In fashion, his immense talent shone so bright that it tore up the conventions and wrapped a million souls in happiness when they wore his creations. I will miss you sir very, very much…" Model Amber Valletta added, "What a loss for us all."
Julianne Moore captioned a photo, "So shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Alber Elbaz, a man w
