AceShowbiz - Johnny Depp's 16-year-old son is "on the mend" following reports he was suffering with "serious health problems".
The Hollywood actor's youngest child, Jack Depp III, was allegedly being cared for by his mother, Johnny's ex girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, in Paris. But a source has confirmed to editors at People magazine the teen is doing "fine" and is no longer suffering from an illness.
"He's fine and doesn't have a health issue," the source shared with the publication, while another insider admitted she had seen Jack walking with a female friend around his mum's Paris apartment on Wednesday looking "a lot better."
The teenager, full name John Christopher Depp III, was believed to be sick after French musician and actress Vanessa skipped Knife + Heart premiere on Tuesday, June 26.
According to French outlet Public, the film's director Yann Gonzalez acknowledged her absence in a public announcement at the screening, sharing: "Unfortunately, Vanessa Paradis was not able to join us tonight, she had to be absent because of her son's serious health problems."
News of the teen's rumoured illness comes as the Pirates of the Caribbean actor tours Europe with his band The Hollywood Vampires. The supergroup, which includes rock legends Joe Perry and Alice Cooper, has been globetrotting with stops in Russia and Germany.
Johnny will reportedly reunite with Jack and model daughter Lily-Rose Depp, 19, when the tour concludes this summer.
"He will spend time with both of his kids once the tour is over in July," a source told People, adding: "Johnny is doing great."
It's not the first time the former couple, who split in 2012, has faced a health scare concerning their children.
In 2007, a seven-year-old Lily-Rose was rushed to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London after contracting food poisoning. Her stint in the children's ward, which Johnny described as "the darkest period of my life", prompted the actor to make a $1.3 million (£1 million) donation the hospital.
