Johnny Depp spent $50K on his son’s 10th b-day, didn’t invite Vanessa Paradis

A few weeks ago, there were some photos floating around of Johnny Depp performing on stage with Marilyn Manson – you can see some of the photos here. I think Raccoon McPantless was at that gig too. Anyway, the gig was billed as just some kind of weird thing, a stunt for the Revolver Golden God Awards. Marilyn and Johnny are tight – Johnny might even have a cameo appearance on Marilyn’s next album. So… they’re friendly. Friendly enough for Marilyn to perform at Johnny’s son’s birthday party? Weird, right? In Touch Weekly claims that for Jack Depp’s 10th birthday, Johnny treated him to a big rock n roll extravaganza with a big price tag:

Johnny Depp is possibly the coolest dad in the world, and he proved it once and for all when he threw a wild birthday bash for his 10-year-old son, Jack, at SLS in LA on April 7. An insider says Depp, 48, shelled out more than $50,000 to entertain 500 friends in a ballroom that was turned into a giant arcade. And if that wasn’t quite enough, Marilyn Manson and Aerosmith also performed!

“It was crazy – especially for someone who was turning 10!” says the source. One person not there? Jack’s mom, Vanessa Paradis.

[From In Touch Weekly, print edition]

Is that what 10-year-olds are into? Marilyn Manson and Aerosmith? Wouldn’t a 10-year-old be more interested in Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez or…? I don’t even know. Rihanna? Katy Perry? It sounds more like Johnny threw himself a big party and it just happened to be his son’s birthday. It also sounds like Johnny is balls-deep into his mid-life crisis. I wonder if Vanessa was pissed about her 10-year-old’s birthday party?

Oh, did you want to see the first promotional image from The Lone Ranger? Here you go. I don’t really have any comment on it. Nice bird.

      Yeah, because what can you say if a man goes off the rails and is unstoppable?

      He should pull himself together, he’s so pathetic!!

    • Marjalane says:

      Ugh. Can you imagine the crap that kid saw that night? And did any of his ACTUAL 10 year old friends attend? What’s he going to do for the kid’s 11th? Invite Lohan?

      • Pjammie says:

        If he invited Lohan then it would be a fairy tale themed party. Lindsay can be Crackilocks and the three pipes!! Lol

    • Stellax2 says:

      Make me a fourth…I don’t get it at all.

      I thought Depp was over his &*#@.
      He used to be a good actor that I associated with a particular interest. He seems like Burton’s puppet now. All of the movies he does are complete caricatures without any depth (no pun intended). He’s phoning it in and we’ll probably never know what really went down.
      I feel sorry for his children and Paradis. I think she’ll be quite fine though with or without him.

      • Princess Lizabeth says:

        Depp has really gone down the tubes, hasn’t he? I used to think he was a good actor, but he is so lost in his own schtick that he never seems original anymore.

        Incidentally, I think Dark Shadows looks awful. More camp, less substance.

        He’s lost it, IMHO.

      • divorcee says:

        I want to see this movie it looks funny. I didn’t know who Eva was till now and she’s done a good job with her role. Michelle is a good actress and I haven’t seen her acted in a while, and Johnny lines are pretty funny.

    • endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

      + a zillion. What is he doing with his life and family?

      Doesn’t Tonto mean “fool” in Spanish?

      I say we just start referring to him as Tonto.

      There really are no other words for his foolish behaviour.

  2. Lotta says:

    Some kids actually have good taste in music. Good for Johnny!

    • autumndaze says:

      PUHLEEZE. The invitees were 500 of the little boy’s closest friends?
      This was a big boy party; not one designed for a turning-10-years-old child.

      • the wise one says:

        who knows johnny depps birthday is coming up mabye he through a combo party for both…… we do thats lots saves on money and we can all have fun… together…. an hey who doesn’t like to have fun… come on why’s life gotta be so serious anyways…

    • Beatriz says:

      I actually agree on this one, there are ten year olds that haven’t been brainwashed, I know my sister was a big George Michael and Beatles Fan at that age, so it is possible.

    • asiont says:

      I was a big David Bowie’s fan as a kid and I still am. I have never actually listened to pop crap

    • katie says:

      exactly! leave him alone! its not your dam kid is it? no.. so how do you know what his kid listens too? get a life and stop hateing! god.. and apprently vanessa is a dumbass, its your kids 10th birthday! be there! stop complaining! johnny is f**king amazing! i love him! so stop hatin on him! you dont know whats really going on with him do you? no. you only know what the paper publishs! so just stop! leave him alone!! johnny im on your side.. all the way! thats amazing you would do that for your kids birthday! and people just let him be with who ever he wants to be with! vanessa aint wearin a ring! how u know she aint cheating???? exactly.. just stop hateing!

  3. vv says:

    It is a nice bird and it has some significant meaning behind it. [ ]

    The party sounded like a pretty good time though! Maybe his son really does enjoy that kind of music. I know my son would die of embarrassment if Justin Bieber were to show up to his shindig….

    • Relli says:

      I was going to point out the same thing that Lainey’s friend did a great articles on its cultural significance.

    • the wise one says:

      my son says he would rather have barney at his birthday party then justin beiber
      lol come on beiber at a 10 year old boys party … wow trying to reck his image early….. and have u seen what johnny depp looks like, he certainly doesnt look like a sissy type.. to throw a sissy party…my 12 year old says he would love to have a party like the one johnny depp threw for his son…

      • katie says:

        people just get on my nerves about this crap.. i mean how do they know what music the kid likes? really? so what he dont like fags like justin and selena and all them fake people.. get over yourselves! i mean come on.. really.. i agree with you, go have one of them fags preform and mess your kids up go ahead.. im on johnnys side, they dont really know whats going on.. hes so so fine he can have whoever he wants and him and vanessa are not maried soo.. and if she thought it was important she would have been there, but no shes always in some other place, never with the kids..

  4. Pandora says:

    actually sounds like every ten year old boys dream, and maybe not every mom and little sisters???

    I’ll bet they were doing something fun themselves while the boys did boy stuff.

  5. Axel 5 says:

    Johnny´s son is one lucky child!!!

  6. lower-case deb says:

    i have a hard time believing this.
    doesn’t sound like a 10yr old wish-list party. either JD is trying to recapture lost childhood, or the tabloid writer is projecting his/her needs/wants on this story because they don’t have any idea of what to write.

    i’m inclined to believe the latter, they need a better Fanfic Department.

    then again, i’m not a 10-yr old, or Depp’s 10 yr old to be specific. so what do i know? *shrugs*

  7. French says:

    500 friends ? the entire school was invited????

    • LeManda says:

      That’s what I’m most concerned about. The music and the video game thing sounds great and fun. But imagine how messed up you’d feel if you had 500 PEOPLE at your 10th B-Day party!!I find that part hard to believe, especially since both parents have been doing their best to raise normal, out of the spotlight, kids.

      • Cooper Lucy says:

        I thought Johnny was notoriously cheap? It realize 50k is pocket change for him, but I’m still not sure I believe it was that big of a party.

      • Veruca says:

        I had a friend in LA who spent 22 grand on their seven year old’s party.

        And it’s standard operating procedure to invite hundreds of children to parties in certain suburbs. In fact, it’s almost expected (ice rink/paintball/movie theater, etc) that one rents out an entire facility for such functions.

        You gotta keep people talking about you if you wanna be famous.

        I find it pathetic.

  8. JM says:

    I’m showing my age here but I’d hope a 10 year old would choose MM & Aerosmith over Bieber and the rest of the autotuned lip syncing commercialized crap.

    That being said, it does sound like Johnny used his son’s birthday as an exuse to throw a party. His mid life crisis is really dimming his sexiness and don’t even get me started on Tonto. Looks like Jack Sparrow in bad war paint with a stuffed raven since he couldn’t find a parrot.

    • Alexa says:

      I agree. This sounds like a party for Johnny and his friends disguised as a party for his son. And THAT kind of stunt is a major turnoff! Never thought he was that great before . . . and really don’t now. (I mean I don’t necessarily dislike him intensely, but I never understood why people thought he walked on water, etc.)

    • Carolyn says:

      Well…I’m off the Depp train. Don’t find him attractive anymore. This made-up story is just weird.

  9. bigchili says:

    I think most 10 year old boys would love a giant arcade birthday party. As for the music, if it’s what he hears his dad listening to and if he looks up to his dad then he probably likes it too.

  10. gee says:

    I loved Aerosmith when I was 10! But I still would have picked BSB over them. Oh BSB.

    • ShazBot says:

      haha me too! My dad took me to an Aerosmith concert when I was 11. He got tickets as far up as possible so I was away from most of the crazy, drunk, smoking people, but it was still a blast!

  11. Rhiley says:

    I am confused by his relationship with Pardis. Are they really over? I know the signs have been there but was there an official announcement?

  12. Jill says:

    I would not allow my 10yo near Manson.

    • Happymom says:

      +1. There are no words to describe how creepy I find that guy.

    • Emma says:

      I would. I remember watching him on some interview with Sharon Osbourne back when she and Kelly had their talk show and there was a kid there and he seemed really good with him. I think MM is a nice, smart guy and that his artist persona isn’t who he actually is. I wouldn’t leave him alone with a kid but then I wouldn’t leave anyone I didn’t know alone with a child.

      • Isabel says:

        Agree with u Emma, nice comment!
        Some people are just kind of shallow and only look at someone’s looks to judge them. If u dont look further than his makeup/outfits and screamy music, yeah of course you think he is crazy. But look at some interviews, he seems like a smart man and kind person generally. Don’t judge a book by its cover people -.-

    • annie_grey says:

      The others are ok, but MM is an awful “entertainer”. No matter how well spoken he is, he’s a bad influence. Especially, to his own friends.

  13. Anna says:

    I can’t come up with any comments regarding the rest of the stuff, but re. Jack’s alleged musical taste – at 10 I found the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys silly and listened to The Beatles and Queen all the time. Some kids are just weird. ;) I guess with Johnny Depp as your dad and Tim Burton as your godfather (? uncle-figure at least) Jack is bound to have some unusual tastes for his age. :)

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yes, this is not your typical 10 y.o. boy we’re talking about. If the kid and his friends are really into this dark stuff at that age, that’s just sad and disturbing. Yeah, coolest dad ever congrats Johnny.

      • anon33 says:

        Ehh, I was into all kinds of classic rock, 80s metal, and heavily into Guns N’Roses when I was 10 (I was also into NKOTB at the same time LOL), and I turned out 100% fine. I don’t think it’s sad or disturbing, it’s just music!

  14. Jayna says:

    Fifty thousand – ten year old – disgusting. Give your son a party for himself, not for you.

  15. Bubulle says:

    I think they are over, remember the People mag cover (,,20562207,00.html) they wouldn’t have published it without Johnny’s Pr team consent. Maybe Vanessa is in denial.

    • Iggles says:

      Yea. She denied the break up, but he has remained quiet. Not a peep, either way which is suspicious because there have been no recent outings of them as a couple …

      • Sarah says:

        Vanessa was backstage when Johnny Depp was performing with Marilyn and In Touch weekly is a joke. She has been in Los Angeles for some time.

  16. jinni says:

    His daughter is into Justin Beiber and went to one of his concerts last year in Florida.

    His son wanted and got a guitar last year, so I doubt Jack’s into the bubble gum, pop music that you’ve listed. Also, since unfortuntely, rock music isn’t as popular in the mainstream as it once was, Jack is probably more influenced by older rockers/the musicians that go over to his house.

    I hope that Lone Ranger is the last Disney movie he does. I’m so tried of him working with those people and hope he does more tiny, indie movies again.

    • carrie says:

      perhaps but Marilyn Manson for a birthday of 10 years old kid? did you listen MM music? and i say it because i love the 3 first MM albums

      • jinni says:

        Well I can’t say I’m familiar with Manson’s music, but I do remember singing songs from R. Kelly’s 12 play ablum at a very young age and if you know anything about that ablum you’d know that it wasn’t suitable for children to listen to. But I think a lot of kids listen to music without really knowing the meaning behind the lyrics and just like it because that’s the music they have access to.

        Besides Manson is a close family friend of Johnny’s and would play Barbies with his daugther when she was little, so Jack probably see Manson from a different perspective than that of his public persona.

  17. DSS says:

    My Sons are 5 and 7 and like to pretend they are the Who….Much more fun than pretending to be Justin Bieber.

    • Veruca says:

      I love your children, and love you for giving them such good taste!!

      Seeing kids rock out to Moon is classic!

    • Just U says:

      My daughters are 9 and 10 and they have been to see a lot of rock bands in concert. My youngest was so taken with Alice Cooper she dressed as him for Halloween. My eldest plays guitar to be like Jimi Hendrix. They love Rammstein and lots of other bands. They would love that party, especially if Slash was there.
      500 kids is ridiculous though. A group of good pals with a private rock show would be so much better.

  18. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    My nine-year-old son has been a huge Bon Jovi fan since he was five. Took him to an outdoor concert a couple of years ago (he was the only kid in the place and sang every song at the top of his lungs) and he said it was the best day of his life. I would mortgage my house to book them for his tenth birthday bash!

    And what an ass for banning mom.

  19. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Whatever happened to bday parties with real activities? I know most of us did laser tag, skating, etc. Ok, that may be boring for a famous, rich kid. But even then, there should be limits. Even getting some four wheelers or renting out a water park for a day for all the friends, now that would be awesome and cool and comparatively semi-normal to Marilyn Manson concert.

  20. mln76 says:

    This sounds like the typical overcompensating ‘weekend’ dad. In fact I suspect Johnny doesn’t see his kids on weekends since he’s always shooting movies back to back without his family around even before the breakup rumors started he was barely on the same continent as them.
    I think he’s a sweet guy and all don’t get me wrong but this doesn’t seem like the best parenting. Whether or not he does like MM and Areosmith is besides the point.

    • jinni says:

      For some people like the Jolie-Pitts hauling their kids around to everyone of their movie locations works for them (this isn’t a dig at them and their lifestlye) but maybe that’s not how Johnny wants his kids to be raised.

      Johnny has said in older interviews how much he hated moving around as a kid and always being the new kid. So, maybe the reason why he doesn’t have his kids follow him to every movie site is becasue he wants them to have the stability he didn’t have when he was a child.

      As for him taking a lot of work, maybe it’s because he become really successful later in his career and wants to take every opportunity that’s offered to him. It’s not as if he’ll always be guaranteed all of these roles for the rest of his career, so he’s striking while the irons hot.

      • mln76 says:

        That all may be true but an extravagant party doesn’t replace love and quality time your kids.

    • Ann says:

      I agree with ‘overcompensating Dad’-syndrome. During divorce, most parents tend to feel guilty and often go overboard trying to ‘make it up’ to the kids with gifts and extravagant parties. It just happens that Johnny Depp has more resources for WAY overcompensating than the rest of us!!
      Also, it doesn’t say that VP was banned–only that she wasn’t there. That is pretty normal, too, I’d think. The split couples I know don’t attend when the other is hosting an event for the kids.

  21. valleymiss says:

    Wow, Johnny. Spending $50k on a 10 year old’s party? How gauche and tacky and materialistic. Sounds like something an American would do! Those tacky Americans! Do the French people spoil their kids rotten too? *eyeroll*

    I really can’t stand hypocrites. Johnny’s a moron.

    • Mary jones says:

      Why are you on an American website if were all so tacky? Go find one more refined in your own country.

    • Ginger says:

      ditto! No need to bash Americans…I’m sure we can all come up with both positives and negatives about any country/culture.

      • lh says:

        Ok, I may be wrong but I think valleymiss was being sarcastic.
        Johnny has been known to bash America…. repeatedly, actually. He’s always comparing America and France and America always get’s the short end of the stick. So, to have this over the top party for his son, seems very Karadasian/Hilton of him and in my opinion, no kid should EVER have that kind of party. It will only serve to raise a very entitled kid.

        Not knowing Johnny personally, it seems out of character for him.
        Having recently gone through my own version of mid-life crisis, I only hope his is short and he finally emerges out of it. BUT, this is Hollywood and if there has ever been a place to indulge this kind of behavior and actually reward it, it’s Hollywood so we’ll see.

      • valleymiss says:

        Yeah…I was being sarcastic. Johnny’s been known to bash America in the press (yet he has no problem with making millions off of us, the Great Unwashed Americans lol) so I was being a b*tch and asking if the French people spoil their kids rotten, too. Johnny’s always like “Yay France Boo America!” and it gets old, ya know? Can’t stand him…

    • says:

      Doesn’t he live in America? I didn’t mind the bashing (because all celebs who move away love to wax on poetically about how great their new country is and it just makes them look like wankers) but then I read that he actually lives in LA most of the time and I was like huh? Not too good for America now are you Depp? Plonker.

    • Irishae says:

      Completely agree! Once Johnny tipped over the hill, he starting acting and looking really creepy to me. He developed this money-grubbing bloatface a la William Shatner, minus the boozehound charm. He just seems soo inauthentic even though he portrays himself as a beatnik national treasure of France. You cannot have both–you can’t sign your soul away to Disney and ham it up with Patti Smith at the same time. PICK ONE. Douche.

  22. OXA says:

    I see his daughters bout with a life threatening illness a few years back has not changed his self indulgence.

  23. deppism says:

    This rumour is totally fake.
    at least , Jack’s birthday party is on 14 April , not 7 April. (according to the article written by Johnny’s friend.)

  24. ladybert62 says:

    I agree that this was a party for Johnny and not for his son – Mr. Depp has gone over the edge as far as I am concerned.

  25. iuy says:

    apparently vanessa’s not into Johnny’s music as well as he’s into hers… i dont think johnny’s gonna be cool about this.

  26. Madpoe says:

    I can’t even make rent this month and reading the gross amount of money people spend pisses me off!

    • Anon says:

      Knowing people that CAN’T afford to spend the way they do pisses me off-I don’t begrudge him spending money he earned. Neither should you-unless he owes you some $ and hasn’t paid up!
      I can make my rent because I live in a small house in an old neighborhood and have stopped spending on crap I don’t really need. Even though I wish I had a newer house in a newer neighborhood…

    • flan says:

      Unlike the anon, I can understand why you’re pissed off.

      The gap between rich and others have been growing steadily, especially after Bush’s tax cuts.

      The typical ‘hey, they earned it, let them do what they want with it’ has become a very hollow argument indeed.

  27. Ginger says:

    My son just turned 10 and had a “normal” birthday party with about 11 guys. He would be thrilled about Aerosmith and he HATES Justin Bieber…we tease him about that all the time. It sounds like a lot of fun although perhaps overwhelming with that many people there. Kids get overstimulated easily…can you imagine trying to Jack to go to sleep that night??

    • cara says:

      yeah, see my kid would love aerosmith too. but it’s like what do you get a kid who turns 15 when he’s had aerosmith at 10? Talk about taking the fast track to jading your child.

  28. wunder says:

    Only $50,000 for a party of that magnitude (Aerosmith performs! Food/drinks for 500 people? Renting/decorating the ballroom?) sounds rather CHEAP to me.

    I think Johnny must have gotten a LOT of FREEBIES to pull this off!

  29. mymy says:

    Poor kids today have to get relics if they want to hear anything good. This has been going on for about 20 years.Rap music destroyed the music industry

    • PyCaramel says:

      Ironically, it’s the music industry that destroyed rap/REAL hip hop. Don’t get it twisted sweetheart.

      • flan says:

        Nope. Listening to music used to be fun on the radio, tv etc, until rap became predominant and it was all about bitches, hoes and women were nothing but decoration.

        Yes, women were used as eye candy before, but nowhere near the extent as in rap, where they get portrayed as being nothing but sex toys.

  30. MSchic says:

    When my son was 10 he was listening to some hip hop, lots of the Beatles, classic rock. He can’t stand pop music.

  31. katie says:

    Oh Johnny. How I’ve loved you all these years. Don’t implode now and kill my girlhood fantasy.

  32. cara says:

    Too much, too fast for a kid. I don’t care if you can afford it, he’s gonna have to top that at 11, 12, 13, 14, etc. for this kid. I don’t know, I just think it’s a bad precedent to set as a parent, even if you can afford.

  33. Jenna says:

    Yeah, I don’t know any 10 year old boy that’s into Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez. Some kids do just gravitate towards classic rock. Sounds like a pretty cool birthday party actually. :)

  34. bns says:

    Johnny is so gross these days. I’m sick of him and his cartoon characters.

  35. Youknownothing says:

    Jack Depp performed, along with his Dad Johnny and his uncle Marilyn Manson, in the cover of the song: “You’re so vain”, according to Marilyn Manson himself

    Jack, like his father, plays guitar…he is obviously into rock music!

    By the way, nothing says that Vanessa was not invited!! don’t be poisonous…

  36. Sarah says:

    I think In Touch is confusing this with a party for Suzanne Allison kid that she held. Johnny Depp, Aerosmith, and Marilyn Manson performed at. She took the pictures of it and her kid played guitar with them. She is longtime friends with Depp.

    • MW says:

      In Touch Weekly confused? That’s a polite way to put it. I don’t think they care what variation of the “truth” they print as long as their stories incite a riot amongst their readers.

  37. says:

    When I was a kid (like 7-12) I liked Gun n Roses, Green Day, Aerosmith, Nirvana, etc (I used to spend all day every day watching MTV). so if I had been like Jack Depp I would have been the happeiest kid in the world.

    We all weren’t obsessed with New Kids on the Block or whomever was around at that time.

  38. MW says:

    Sounds like something that coincided with Jack’s birthday. I seriously doubt JD would have excluded his daughter, regardless of his relationship with Vanessa. And just for the record, my kids have always loved old-school. Their first concerts were Rod Stewart, Garth Brooks, Paul McCartney, and the Eagles and they still talk about and appreciate that they went! And still listen to that music along with current music. They would have jumped at the chance to go to this “concert” at age ten, or now — 15 or so years later.

  39. stop the madness says:

    It wouldn’t be surprising if his son likes rock music, but the party is over the top for a 10 year old. Period. How do you top that later in his life without raising an entitled child?

    His daughter will be 13 this year. Wonder what he’s going to do for that?!

  40. Chrissy says:

    My son is 10 and he would love the arcade bit. But he doesn’t know who Marilyn Manson or Aerosmith are. He has music he likes, but those sound more like Johnny’s choices (and pals). Maybe the music was more for the adults in the crowd, but it seems a bit inappropriate to me.

  41. foozy says:

    nothing strange about the choice of music!!! my niece is 10 and she’s a lovely little girl who sings for her choir in school and is as normal you get. her parents love judas priest and she was brought up listening to all kinds of music including classical and heavy metal. she loves judas priest, iron maiden and all sorts of things out there.

  42. jesstar says:

    IF true, sounds douchetastic

  43. katy says:

    So no one cares if his mother is there or not?is this a male only party?

  44. moo says:

    He’s gone from the hotness to the notness.

  45. DemoCat827 says:

    Several years ago my husband and I attended a birthday party at a swanky Dallas hotel for a kid who was turning 3. There were probably at least 500 people there in shiny clothes with glittering jewelry – all for a kid who won’t even remember it. I always thought the party was for the parents to show off, not for the kid. At least Jack Depp will (probably) remember this party.

  46. Lisa says:

    Katie Perry at 10? The one who sings about having sex on the beach?

    Wow, I guess kids grow up really quickly these days … At ten, I was still into Star Wars (the originals, obviously). I don’t think I was even into Tiffany or Debbie Gibson yet.

  47. PL says:

    I have a 10-year-old who LOVES Aerosmith. I’m not going to let her listen to MM, mostly because he sucks, but Aerosmith is fine. I’m sure she isn’t the only one out there.

    talked to her. Sounds like they are together. Get real, can’t fathers and mothers have their own kid parties? Do they have to do everything together? Ugh. I doubt his son’s sister was at the party either.–happy-days-in-oohlala-land-7682216.html

      Thanks for the interview…it was GREAT! I’m happy if she’s happy (and Johnny looks so healthy, handsome and well the last couple of month)…and if she’s still considering “My American Lover”, it’s a good signal for the fans who wants the best for them both!

    • blasted1 says:

      EmmaStoneWannabe probably has it right: Johnny and Paradis have an “agreement.” I hate to stick a pin in someone’s balloon, but the article you linked to is a rehash of old remarks made back in January in other gossip magazines. I don’t put too much faith in tabloids or tabloid t.v., but if People and Inside Edition BOTH say they’re over as a couple, you can pretty much make book on it. Sorry.

    Good that he has nice folks in the biz to protect him. it is promo time so all is family-famila mode lol

    • Stop the madness says:

      I know. WTH! This does NOT sound like an interview it reads like a cut and paste article!

      He is really starting to piss me off with this crap. I can not believe what a jerk he has become. Anything to protect the money! I wish someone would blow this guys cover and put his shady @$$ on blast!

        I can’t stand him, for years he lived in France because it has many advantages (like no paparazzis) but when the French government asked him to pay taxes,he suddenly decided that he missed LA

  50. Lisa B. says:

    As others said before, Johnny threw the party for himself.

    Even if his boy actually likes old school music, why on Earth would a 10 year old need 500 people on his birthday? Does he even know this number of people? I’m not sure about that.

    I used to love Johnny but I think his recent behaviour is dangerously close to his Kate Moss years. Which is not a good thing, you know. If he and Vanessa really split up, this dude will spin out of control, I’m not even kidding. Especially if hanging out with good company (/sarcasm) like Marilyn Manson.

    MM and JD go waaaay back. MM also has a long standing friendship with Jolie.

    When I was ten I listened to Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Staind, Metallica kiss, and ACDC etc.

    What this kid listens to is a tricycle compared to what I and my siblings listened to haha.

  53. Hip-ster says:

    He didnt get a holographic Queen to perform? Come on Johnny!

  54. dorothy says:

    I really like Depp and his acting. Sad that after the break-up he is becoming a jerk.

  55. Paula says:

    can you imagine how spoiled and awful that particular 10 year old must be, sounds like the kind of thing someone would do to piss off the x wife, I’d be looking for full custody if I was her, and yeah, what’s he doing hanging out with that cxxt manson, he’s definitly been heading down the road of asholery for some time now, like a male angalina, loves himself!

  56. ZenB!tch says:

    Earth to Johnny Depp – Aerosmith has been irrelevant for centuries. The clown is an AI judge for Jagger’s sake! Only a wannabe rockstartard like you would care about Aerosmith.

    Manson – he’s from my time. The last of the rock and rollers and while more credible than Aerosmith, he’s no longer relevant either.

    Sadly rock is no longer relevant – thankfully I’m old and have no time to look for new music. The old crap is already keeping the iPod full

  57. Ravensdaughter says:

    He and Vanessa need to get a parenting plan (that’s what they call custody in WA State) hammered out now. He can have his fun, but not at the detriment of his children. No critique of the b’day theme-it’s just obvious that Johnny is going through another adolescence; something that is not likely the best for his kids.

  58. Ashley says:

    If I was 10 at my birthday I wanted to see(& have) my mom more than 500 strange looking wrierd people my dad is inviting.
    A child needs his mom not friends.

  59. a fan says:

    First of all, most of the rockers that attended are all pretty “vintage” right now. Some of them even have children! Do you really think that they’d be smoking crack and having orgies at a 10 year old’s party?? If you do, then I feel sorry for your kids.

    They were there to entertain with music, and perhaps Johnny’s kid is as much into rock and music as both his parents are.

    I think it was a cool thing for him to do and a “once in a lifetime” experience for any kid. From what I hear of Johnny and his generosity, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if some of the guests there were from local charities etc. He’s a great actor and a good human being. You all should really do your research before slagging!

  60. Jane says:

    Johnny makes a much better couple with Eva Green and Vanessa with sexy french singer Benjamin Biolay. I don’t think Eva would be interested in Johnny though, but if she were, he would be there in a snap.

    Google Benjamin Biolay, he’s sexy. Sings like Serge Gainsbourg.

  61. Casey says:

    This story sounds either partially or completely fabricated, doesn’t it? It’s one of those stories that goes a little to far into the realm of extreme. Sorry folks.

    Marilyn manson & 10 year olds. It wont print my opinion on that. Im a child advocate.
