Angelina Jolie has not reached out to Johnny Depp and offered to help get him healthy, despite a completely untrue tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the story. It’s filled with inaccuracies.
According to Woman’s Day, the actress became concerned about Depp after seeing photos of him looking thinner than usual while signing autographs for fans in Russia. The unreliable magazine also claims the actor is “spiraling” both emotionally and physically. An alleged insider is then quoted as saying, “He’s been displaying some worrying signs that he’s suffering from a personality disorder, which has left his loved ones deeply concerned.”
One of the people supposedly trying to intervene in Depp’s life is said to be Jolie, who co-starred with the actor in 2010’s The Tourist. “She has been phoning and texting him several times a day while he is on tour in Europe with his band,” says the magazine’s questionable source. The tabloid further contends that Jolie has “offered her support to get him back to health,” but the outlet provides zero details about how she plans to take care of him.
For starters, Depp is currently on a world tour with his band The Hollywood Vampires, while Jolie is busy shooting Maleficent 2 in London. Considering the two have hectic and conflicting schedules, it’s unlikely the actress could find the time to help him. Also, it isn’t actually clear if Jolie and Depp have kept in touch much since co-starring in a movie together nearly a decade ago. The two haven’t even been spotted together since the film’s red carpet premiere in 2010.
Regardless, Gossip Cop is told on background by a source close to Depp that the tabloid’s article is fabricated. Jolie hasn’t reached out to the actor to “get him back to health,” nor does she have any reason to. This narrative seems to have been concocted because some fans have expressed concern about the actor over his recent weight loss. However, he’s perfectly healthy.
As “Entertainment Tonight” reported last week, “Depp is healthy, despite fans’ recent concerns.” People backed up this reporting, quoting a source as saying, “Johnny is having a great time on the tour playing with the guys.” And another Depp insider told E! News “there is no reason to be concerned” for the actor. When it comes to celebrity news, all three of these outlets are much more trustworthy than Woman’s Day.
Considering that Depp is on the road with his band and doing well, the notion that Jolie reached out to intervene in his life doesn’t make sense. Also, between shooting a movie and going through a custody battle, the actress has plenty on her own plate at the moment. Regardless, a reliable Depp source assures Gossip Cop the tabloid’s story is made-up.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
