After his court victory against Amber Heard, Johnny Depp has practically disappeared from the radar. As recently emerged, the actor has settled in the English suburbs.
And if fans have already begun to worry about their idol’s extremely strange appearance, it’s definitely time for them to sound the alarm.
And the thing is that Johnny has decided to change his profession and… become the owner of a pub. The fact that the 59-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star has chosen a venue in the city of Smarden.
The Checkers Inn pub belongs to the girlfriend of British celebrity chef Paul Hollywood, who hosts the British food show Best Baker, and is valued at one million pounds (or €1.2 million). Interestingly, amid discussions of its acquisition, prices have skyrocketed.
As a result, locals complain that the pub has gone from being a cool spot to an expensive, metropolitan institution. And now, why this purchase is such a bad idea…
First, Depp is not new to the restaurant business. In the early 1990s, he opened the Viper Room venue in Los Angeles, where celebrities didn’t feel exposed.
Naturally, all of his friends really appreciated this approach and the place quickly became a point of attraction for up-and-coming stars like Keanu Reeves and Brad Pitt.
However, it all went wrong, with the venue gaining a bad reputation after the tragic death of 23-year-old River Phoenix in 1993.
One of Hollywood’s most promising young actors died of an overdose right in front of the Viper Room. And it’s no secret that Depp himself has been abusing alcohol and illegal substances until recently.
Amber Heard has opened up about her shocking behavior under the influence of alcohol during the trial.
And although the actor has categorically denied all cases of violence, he did not dispute the fact that he had been suffering from addiction for many years.
And many temptations await him in his own pub… In general, there is a fear that the English peasants of the Depp institution will be surprised not only by the high prices.
