That “REHAB” Story

16 Jun

From Article today:


Hmmm, bad idea.

After a complaint from the star’s representatives, the magazine determined that the information could not be verified. Martin Singer, Depp’s attorney, denied that Depp had left the movie’s set for an alcohol-related issue.

“The only rehab he went to was for his hand,” which had been injured, Singer said in an interview.

The story wasn’t just inaccurate and potentially defamatory, according to people at People. It posed another legal and financial issue as well: Movie producers pay handsomely to insure their productions against disruptions — such as the unexpected illness or departure of a key player — and disclosure of an addiction problem could prompt an insurance company to raise its rates or even refuse to issue a policy for a troubled star.

Great, so after reading the above we have no idea if rehab was real, along with getting a finger repaired, or if it wasn’t real. Sounds to me like his reps wouldn’t and don’t want the truth out there. With the raising of insurance and all.

I don’t think he went to rehab because he’s been sighted, and photographed drinking with buddies. After last Novembers show, he seems to need rehab. Being toasted, and blitzed on stage? No, it Doesn’t matter if others were drunk, everyone was drinking at the Hollywood film awards. Sure, but Depp likes to drink a lot, and stumble and fall out in public (pubs clubs etc) November, it happened to be on stage, he was clearly more intoxicated than most, and honestly no one should have let him go onstage like that, but still………..he should have known better too.

It is strange that after PEOPLE Mag…having a set way to do things, screwed this up. Mistakes can happen, but if there were always so careful with A listers and Jenner, WHY would that have been a fast mistake? Sounds like the Johnny camp wanted it pulled. Maybe because he DIDN’T actually go to rehab. Why would he? LOL

    The only story i can remember People mag took down was the one about them leading separate lifes. In which they mention a possible rehab. They had to take it down because of this? Who would’ve thought!?

    Looks like PR are trying to cover something up. Very suspicious.

      Well I mean regardless, his team doesn’t usually expend the energy on any of this stuff, so this particular story getting a “no no” is strange.

        True. Most of the time his people do ignore this stuff so this is indeed bizarre. More nonsense in this whole fucked up mess.

          Uh…maybe they got bored. HA! Or maybe they thought they should take action on s o m e t h i n g since shit has hit the fan so much. I dunno.

    I had wondered about this. I knew about the insurance issues and major implications a story like this could have on a production. Just like the one when Johnny had reportedly “walked off set to chase after his wife”… which you may remember got shot down quickly as well. People often do no realize that not only can those stories affect production insurance but they can also cause Disney stocks to drop! As crazy as it sounds, Depp is the star, without him Pirates (a major money tentpole) doesn’t happen, therefore if something happens to him, it has a MASSIVE ripple effect.

    I’m not surprised at all to see his people hitting back. This affects his BUSINESS as well as many other people’s jobs and incomes. I think he could care less if the general public believes he went to rehab, though I too do not think he did. There’s clearly evidence to prove he has since been drinking. Personally I’d say he needs it and perhaps the business is part of what keeps him from taking that route. It WOULD effect his risk factor on future projects. However, they can’t NOT hire him due to having sought help for addictions and clearly, if he keeps up the way he’s going it’s going to either destroy his brand aka business OR it’ll kill him.

    To me, it’s a no brainer, wrap pirates if he must, then get clean and for SERIOUS this time. No “at home” lazy bullshit.

    And kick that Succubus to the curb, she clearly is not a good influence.

    Agreed. Clean house completely and get rid of the bitch and all of those enablers around him.

    There’s no denying it..Johnny has a drinking problem and has for years. The company he keeps, the industry he’s in and relationships he’s had or has don’t help the situation. He talks about his love affair with alcohol and claimed he was sober for a number of years. He always wanted to keep his private life private…and for the most part did just that. Of course he had public appearances and there were pictures of him and his family but he did a good job of keeping his children from the public eye…..but in the last 3 to 5 years his life has gone from private to public. Things have changed in the world due social media, his children are older and now his daughter is an actress and model… Johnny’s new girl likes allot of attention. …Johnny has said for years that he’s shy and doesn’t like all the attention and he uses alcohol to calm the circus.
    Amber wants to be on the cover of magazines, she wants to be famous, she wants attention and wants to be a household name.
    So where will this go…She’s wants what she wants and has made it clear that she won’t stop til she gets what she wants….so it is Johnny or is it fame? Johnny doesn’t want nor can handle all the fame whoring. ..he walked away from it years ago….and has shown and talked about how he can’t handle that circus act….it drives him to drink. Amber and Johnny are at an impass… are they actually in love and will worked it out? Will she choose fame and dump Johnny when she finds someone who can give her what’s she needs or drive johnny to his grave? Will Johnny put a stop to the madness, dump Amber and live a quite live or keep Amber and drink himself to death?
    To me it’s all very sad for his children….they are both at an age where they can easily take the wrong path…and having parents that are drinking and partying etc . just makes it allot easier to achieve.
    I wish the best for Johnny, he’s a big boy and he has to make some hard choices….Amber or sanity.

      “Amber or sanity.” Well put Sad For JD.

      Also, I think we might as well add “absent father” to the list of changes in his life. The evidence is growing that indeed, Johnny is NOT seeing his children much and certainly not much alone time.

      Personally I think that has more to due with Amber than his behavior as he’s clearly gone through periods of heavy drinking before. It seems shocking to think a man who so loved his children, who claims he’s wrapped around his daughter’s finger, would allow ANY woman to sever that bond.

      If loosing his children doesn’t push him to wake the fuck up, I’m loosing hope that anything else can!

      I would really hate to add his name to a sad and ever growing list of talented people we lost too soon because their demons won out. 😦
