The Truth About Jack And Lily-Rose Depp's Relationship

When it comes to interesting celebrity offspring, there's no question that siblings Lily-Rose and Jack Depp are an intriguing pair. As the children of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, this brother and sister duo definitely experienced an interesting upbringing. Still, though Lily-Rose has become famous in her own right (thanks to her impressive career as an actor and a model), not much is known about the private life of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star's son. Likewise, the elder Depp and Paradis typically keep quiet when it comes to speaking about their kids, choosing to raise them out of the spotlight.

But while Lily-Rose's fame led to parts of her life becoming more public, the relationship between her and her baby bro has remained fairly hushed. From what is known about the pair's association, it would seem there's plenty of love between this brother and sister. Not only has Lily-Rose shared a heartfelt tribute to Jack for his birthday, but she has also spoken about their special bond during interviews. So naturally, with so much of the duo's time together kept out of the public eye, fans of the twosome are longing to know more about the relationship between Lily-Rose and Jack.

The siblings didn't have a strict upbringing

Growing up with celebrities for parents can be a challenge, but for Jack and Lily-Rose Depp, it would appear that the siblings' childhood was pretty relaxed. According to Lily-Rose via The Sun, the model's famous parents, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, had a pretty laid-back parenting style when it came to raising her and her brother Jack. "My parents weren't very strict," Lily-Rose stated. The actor then added that her parents' choice to let her and her brother have more independence was likely the result of their own experiences growing up and leaving school to pursue other interests when they were just teens.

Likewise, when it came to being in the public eye, the exes ensured that their children never felt uncomfortable. The "Yoga Hosers" star said, "My parents did a great job of giving me and my brother the most private upbringing we could have." Lily-Rose then added that her parents' choices taught her and her brother the value of privacy. She also noted that her parents made sure to keep both kids grounded, despite the fame that inevitably surrounded them during their childhood. "I just think it's really important to have a good ­support system around you and be grounded by those people," Lily-Rose added.

In certain ways, the siblings are complete opposites

Though this brother and sister duo clearly have plenty of love for one another, they couldn't be more different when it comes to some of their career choices. With their famous parents, fans of the family always knew there was a chance Lily-Rose and Jack Depp would potentially follow in Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis' footsteps. However, when it comes to being in the media, it's clear that Lily-Rose is more open to becoming a household name than her more shy and less public brother Jack. As noted by HITC, Lily-Rose's career in the entertainment industry has truly taken off, leading the young star to build quite an impressive resume.

Lily-Rose started modeling when she was just 16 years old. Her first campaign was with Chanel, and just a year later, she was promoting the brand's fragrance, Chanel No.5 L'Eau. Since then, she's consistently worked with the noteworthy fashion brand, and in 2017, Lily-Rose was the face of Chanel's Rouge Coco Gloss for their autumn/winter campaign. The star has also regularly appeared in both American and French films since 2016. Some of her work includes "The Dancer," "A Faithful Man," and "The King." As for her brother Jack, Hello! Magazine reported that the younger sibling has no interest in being in the public eye and doesn't even have any social media accounts.

Lily-Rose and Jack both have a good relationship with their famous dad

Not all celebrity offspring have good relationships with their parents. However, it would seem that things are pretty great when it comes to Lily-Rose and Jack Depp's relationship with their famous father, Johnny Depp. According to Hello!, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor has plenty of love for his children and maintains a strong bond with them. Back in 2014, the elder Depp gushed about his son's abilities via The Inquirer. "My boy Jack, has always been a very talented draftsman," said the star. "He draws really super well. He also plays music very well."

Lily-Rose's relationship with her father is similarly special. The Daily Mail stated that the "Edward Scissorhands" star is clearly very proud of his daughter and her accomplishments. "Lily's really together — she's a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met," Johnny Depp said. He also affirmed that the pair was very close: "We're super-tight and I'm very proud of our relationship."

Additionally, when domestic abuse allegations were first made against Johnny Depp in 2016, Lily-Rose jumped to his defense in a since-deleted Instagram post. "My dad is the sweetest, most loving person I know, he's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same," she wrote (via E! News).

Their parents' separation was hard on both of them

Hearing that your parents are separating can be a challenging experience for anyone to cope with. Likewise, it would seem that for Lily-Rose and Jack Depp, their parents' split was pretty tough. In 2012, when People reported that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, the "Secret Window" star's publicist told the entertainment outlet that the pair had separated on good terms and requested privacy for themselves and their children. Later, in 2013, the elder Depp spoke to Us Weekly about how the breakup affected his family and revealed that things had been quite rocky for the past few years.

"Relationships are very difficult," the star stated. "It wasn't easy on her. It wasn't easy on me. It wasn't easy on the kids," Even so, Depp admitted that he and his ex would always be connected since she is the mother of his children. "You're always gonna be in each other's lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it." The actor then reflected on how his children were dealing with everything, stating that his kids would always come first. "They've been incredibly understanding, incredibly strong throughout the whole ordeal," Depp said, adding that it was important for him to be honest with Lily-Rose and Jack about what was going on with their family.

The siblings weren't fond of their father's former partner

Separation and new relationships for newly single parents can be a rough experience for the children involved. When it came to Lily-Rose Depp, it would appear that she wasn't exactly the biggest fan of her father's romance with actor Amber Heard. According to a write-up by Us Weekly, Johnny Depp revealed during his court testimony that his daughter didn't attend his 2015 wedding to the "Aquaman" actor. "She and Ms. Heard were not on particularly great terms, for several reasons," the elder Depp said. Likewise, according to The News, Lily-Rose's brother Jack Depp didn't seem too fond of his father's former partner either.

In a 2018 GQ interview with Johnny Depp, the outlet noted that the actor revealed Jack had a lot of struggles due to his romance with Heard, the complicated divorce, and the claims that arose from it. The "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" star stated that other kids would address both of his children about the allegations against the elder Depp. "Why did he [Jack] have to go through that? Why did my daughter have to go through that?" the actor questioned. Additionally, during his testimony, the star revealed that his children had no relationship with Heard. "My kids are far more intelligent than I am. They refused to be around her," he said.

Lily-Rose celebrated her brother's birthday with throwback photos

It's clear that Lily-Rose and Jack Depp are closely bonded siblings, so it's no surprise that the "Yoga Hosers" star has celebrated her brother's milestones publicly. As noted by People, Jack Depp was born on April 9, 2002, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. However, unlike his sister — who has become a well-recognized figure thanks to her flourishing career in the entertainment industry — Jack prefers to keep his life pretty private. He's also rarely in the media. Still, for his 18th birthday, Jack's big day was broadcast to all when Lily-Rose decided to share a special tribute to her sibling on Instagram.

"My little baby Jackie is 18," the model wrote. Lily-Rose then stated, "My baby bro my heart and soul happy birthday I love you SO MUCH!" She also included a throwback photo collage of the duo from when they were kids. In the picture, a young Lily-Rose and Jack can be seen making silly faces. In addition to the old image, the "Voyagers" star also included a snap of her bro all grown up, in which a shirtless Jack can be seen lounging outside in a chair wearing a pair of sunglasses. Lily-Rose's sweet homage definitely shows how much she loves her brother.

Lily-Rose and Jack Depp use French as their secret language

In addition to being the children of famous stars, Lily-Rose and Jack Depp are also multi-cultural, having an American dad and a French mom. In an Interview Magazine chat with Keira Knightley, Lily-Rose via discussed growing up bilingual and experiencing two cultures. "I identify with both cultures equally. My dad is very American and my mom is very French, and I grew up in both places," she explained. Considering the fact that she and Jack are siblings, this likely indicates that Jack had a similar experience.

Additionally, while chatting with Knightley, Lily-Rose stated that for her, it feels natural to speak both languages. "I speak exclusively French with my French family and exclusively English with my American family," the model said. The rising actor added that when she has kids of her own, she'll want them to know both languages as well. 

Lily-Rose also revealed something special about being bilingual siblings. "You can have a secret language with people," she declared. "When my brother and I were at the same school, whenever we wanted to say something that was going to stay just between us, we could say it in French and nobody would understand," she told Knightley.

The siblings split their time between America and France

In addition to being bilingual — thanks to their American dad, Johnny Depp, and French mom, Vanessa Paradis — Lily-Rose and Jack Depp frequently split their time between France and America. According to the Daily Mail, the siblings chose to stay in France with their mom during quarantine and were frequently spotted out and about during their stay. Similarly, in 2020, Sound Health and Lasting Wealth reported that Lily-Rose and Jack had been sighted going about their days, separately enjoying their time in Paris. While Lily-Rose was spotted enjoying a solo outing, her brother Jack was seen out and about with his girlfriend. 

According to Hollywood Life, photographers snapped pictures of Jack — who is known for being more camera-shy than his sister — while he was hanging out in Paris with his girlfriend, Camille Jansen. Pictures were taken of the pair while they were walking the streets of Paris, looking comfy in their casual streetwear. 

That's far from the only time that Lily-Rose and Jack have been seen jetting off to their mother's native home. In 2016, the Daily Mail reported that the brother and sister duo had gone to France for the holidays. The pair were spotted at the CDG airport in Paris, where they were greeted by their mother and grandfather.
