It’s been a little over a month since Johnny Depp was found passed out in a Hungarian hotel room, resulting in the cancellation of tour dates with the Hollywood Vampires super-group. Depp, who’s spent much of his time lately on the road touring with the rock band, hasn’t necessarily been in the best of health, and the internet quickly caught fire once news broke that the one-time Pirates of the Caribbean actor was found unconscious. Rumors engulfed chatrooms and social media feeds regarding Johnny Depp’s drinking and drug habits, a significant highlight of the recent Depp v. Heard trial documentary on Netflix, leading many to speculate if there’s any hope at all that the once-golden boy of Hollywood could ever return to Disney. Subsequently, as Depp is not shy about his rumored past addictions, many suggested a worse fate, fearing that the actor may have died due to an overdose. Of course, this isn’t what happened, but that didn’t stop the internet from making an assumption and telling the world that the once-great Captain Jack Sparrow, was dead.
Despite the Hoax, Johnny Depp is Alive, But Maybe Not Well
After the incident in Hungary and despite the death hoax, many started to worry about the health of the Sweeney Todd lead. Despite a seemingly quick recovery from whatever happened in that hotel room, Depp’s first appearance back in the United States left jaws dropped. The one-time heart-throb was barely recognizable and needed the assistance of a cane to get around Boston. Reports suddenly indicated that Depp had left his tour overseas, not due to an alcohol or drug-related incident, but due to an ankle injury that he had sustained. No matter what happened, Johnny Depp did not look like what fans are used to, and his appearance led to further speculation that he may not be fit for a return to Pirates 6 if it ever happens.
Depp’s Reported Lifestyle May Lead to More Death Hoaxes
When Depp took the stand against ex-wife Amber Heard to defend claims of abuse she had made against the Fantastic Beasts, he did not shy away from his personal struggles with drugs and alcohol. In Netflix’s newest documentary highlighting the now infamous courtroom battle, Depp was vocal about his fight with the abuse of opioids and benzodiazepines. Heard’s legal team used recording and photo evidence to suggest that Johnny Depp lives a demanding lifestyle that many other famous actors and musicians have succumbed to. Depp didn’t deny this hard way of living, making a death hoax much more believable as millions worldwide have been privy to his drug and alcohol use through widespread social media coverage of his defamation case.
