Kathryn Cook

Things do not seem to be going very well for Jack Depp, the son of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.

A new report from Us Weekly shares that Jack's mother, Vanessa Paradis, missed the Paris premiere of her film A Knife in the Heart. When questioned about Paradis' absence, director Yann Gonzalez told press that Vanessa was at home with her ailing son.

"Unfortunately, Vanessa Paradis was not able to join us tonight, she had to be absent because of her son's serious health problems."

According to Entertainment Tonight, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis dated from 1998 to 2012 and the couple have two children together. The couple's other child, Lily Rose Depp, is 19 years old and is following in the footsteps of her famous parents by getting into acting.

"I was as low as I believe I could have gotten. The next step was, you're going to arrive somewhere with your eyes open and you're going to leave with your eyes closed. I couldn't take the pain every day."

"Under TMG's watch Depp's sister Christi was given $7 million and his assistant, Nathan Holmes, $750,000, without his knowledge, and that he has paid the IRS more than $5.6 million in late fees," the lawsuit says.

His son Jack was also mentioned in that particular interview when an emotional Depp told the magazine that Jack had to hear about how his father "lost all his money from kids at school, that's not right."
