Man Claiming To Be Johnny Depp’s Long-Lost Son Shares DNA Evidence & Photo Of His Mom With The Actor



It seems Johnny Depp may have an additional child on top of the two he already has.

A man has come forward, alleging that he is Depp’s son and the actor has no idea, detailing events in his life that have led him to believe that he is related to the actor.

While Depp has two children, Lily-Rose Depp, 23, and Jack Depp, 20, with his ex-partner, Vanessa Paradis, the man, James, claims that he is also a part of their family.

The man claiming to be Johnny Depp’s long-lost son came forward on TikTok.

James explained that he believes Depp and his mother met in the Philippines, sharing a photo that he says shows them together.

In a TikTok video, James claimed Depp “was in the Philippines in 1986” filming a movie.

“There is a woman sitting behind him on set, and I believe her to be my mother,” he alleges, sharing the photo along with other images of a woman he claims to be his mom in another video.

James claims that on his birth certificate, his biological father is not named, and instead says “unknown.”

He also alleges that he doesn’t know the exact date of his birth, previously thinking that it was October 15, 1986, because his mother was allegedly issued a “citation for not registering a live birth for up to a year.”

James continued, saying that his mother eventually became abusive toward him when they moved to America, which was around the same time that Depp started to gain recognition in Hollywood.

“I have asked plenty of times only to be met with violence,” James claims, referring to asking his mother if Depp is his biological father or not.

After taking a DNA test, James noticed that he and Depp shared the same ancestry.

James noted that he had taken an ancestry DNA test, where on his father’s side, he allegedly inherited “16% Scottish, 25% English” with some Welsh, German, Irish, and other European countries.

Depp’s reported ancestry shows that he’s primarily of English descent, with some French, German, and Irish ancestry.

Depp also told Entertainment Weekly in 2011 that he has “some Native American somewhere down the line.”

“My great-grandmother was quite a bit of Native American, she grew up Cherokee or maybe Creek Indian. Makes sense in terms of coming from Kentucky, which is rife with Cherokee and Creek.”

James continued, saying that he does bear a resemblance to Depp, and while the timeline is a bit “skewed,” he is determined to figure out the truth.

“Take a look into it,” he urged viewers. “If anything, just help prove me wrong.”

Depp filmed a movie in the Philippines in 1986.

During that year, Depp traveled to the country to shoot his film “Platoon,” proving that detail of James’ recount to be true.

At the time, Depp wasn’t widely known, and according to the Guardian, had a small role in the movie, though much of the material he shot was cut from the finished project, including his two major dialogue scenes with fellow actor Willem Dafoe.

The film started shooting in the Philippines in 1986, however, Depp was reportedly in a relationship during that time.

Depp and actress Sherilyn Fenn were said to be dating after the two met in 1985 while shooting their short film “Dummies.”

The two went on to date for three years, and according to Brides, they were even engaged.

Years after their split, Fenn had nothing but nice things to say about her ex-partner, suggesting that the two didn’t end on bad terms.

“He was very sweet. He was my first love,” Fenn told The Big Issue in 2017. “I had found real love. It was with someone who was walking the same path, but even if he wasn’t, the love and the connection was strong enough – cooking meals, hanging out, laughing, and crying.“So it is more about that than the fact he is this well-known person now. I know him as a human, not a movie star.”

Tina Turner's Cause of Death Revealed

Her death sent shockwaves through Hollywood, with many celebrities speak out about the influence her achievements had on the industry.

Tina Turner survived an abusive relationship with Ike and death of two sons




Tina Turner escaped an abusive relationship to find true love with her second husband, Erwin Bach.

The singer, who passed away aged 83 on Wednesday following an unspecified illness, was in a relationship with the record executive for 38 years. The pair married in 2013.

Tina had publicly praised Erwin for helping her find happiness after fleeing from her first marriage to husband, Ike Turner, which was plagued with physical and emotional abuse.

Ike first met Tina when she was a vulnerable teenager named Annie Mae Bullock. He renamed her Tina, and went on to form the musical duo, Ike & Tina Turner. According to Tina, he micromanaged her career, withheld her finances and beat her while she was pregnant.

After filing for divorce in 1978, Tina was left in debt and had her children to support. She went on to establish a successful solo career.

The songstress met Erwin in 1985 when he was working as an executive with EMI. The pair had an instant connection the moment they met, when he arrived to collect her from Düsseldorf airport.

She said Erwin had taught her how “to love without giving up who I am”, and that he had never been intimidated by her fame or success. He even donated a kidney to her in April 2017, which saved her life.

Writing in her book, Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good, Tina said: “Falling in love with my husband, Erwin, was another exercise in leaving my comfort zone, of being open to the unexpected gifts that life has to offer.

“The day I first met Erwin, at an airport in Germany, I should have been too tired from my flight, too preoccupied with thoughts of my concert tour. But I did notice him, and I instantly felt an emotional connection.

“Even then, I could have ignored what I felt — I could have listened to the ghost voices in my head telling me that I didn’t look good that day, or that I shouldn’t be thinking about romance because it never ends well. Instead, I listened to my heart.”

Tina’s spokesman confirmed she died “peacefully” at home and added: “With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model. With her music and her inexhaustible vitality, Tina Turner thrilled millions of fans and inspired many artists of subsequent generations.”

Tina Turner: legendary rock’n’roll singer dies aged 83




Tina Turner, the pioneering rock’n’roll star who became a pop behemoth in the 1980s, has died aged age of 83 after a long illness, her publicist has told the PA news agency.
Turner affirmed and amplified Black women’s formative stake in rock’n’roll, defining that era of music to the extent that Mick Jagger admitted to taking inspiration from her high-kicking, energetic live performances for his stage persona. After two decades of working with her abusive husband, Ike Turner, she struck out alone and – after a few false starts – became one of the defining pop icons of the 1980s with the album Private Dancer. Her life was chronicled in three memoirs, a biopic, a jukebox musical, and in 2021, the acclaimed documentary film, Tina.

“Turner’s musical character has always been a charged combination of mystery as well as light, melancholy mixed with a ferocious vitality that often flirted with danger,” scholar Daphne A Brooks wrote for the Guardian in 2018.
Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939 and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee, where she recalled picking cotton with her family as a child. She sang in the tiny town’s church choir, and as a teenager talked – or rather, sang – her way into Ike’s band in St Louis: he had declined her request to join until he heard her seize the microphone during a Kings of Rhythm performance for a rendition of BB King’s You Know I Love You.
She had suffered ill health in recent years, being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and having a kidney transplant in 2017.
