Despite the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s media maelstrom, an ET source claims he is a “good guy” who is looking to get “his life back on track” following a “painfully difficult” couple of years.

According to the insider:

“Johnny has suffered the most painfully difficult couple years of his life and part of him just wants for people to know he is a good guy… He actually feels the need to write a memoir not just to understand himself and the pain he has experienced, but also to share with the world that in real life he is not a villain.”

In his profile, the thespian admits he poured himself “a vodka in the morning and started writing [his memoir] until the tears filled [his] eyes and [he] couldn’t see the pages anymore.”

The source reveals the death of Depp’s cancer-stricken mother, Betty Sue, in 2016, and his troublesome marriage to Heard was “more than he could bare.”

However, Depp is looking forward to his future projects, and fighting his legal war against The Management Group (TMG) for allegedly defrauding him and mismanaging his money.

“Johnny is ready to move forward with his music and movies, clean up his money issues and prove his former financial team’s accusations wrong… He is looking to the light at the end of the tunnel and I think he feels it’s already starting to shine for him.”

Although fans were concerned about Depp’s health after photos of him looking “thin” appeared on social media (SEE HERE), the source denies the actor is ill.

“He is not physically sick at all… When he heard people were talking about his appearance, he was actually deeply offended that anyone thought his appearance was related to a health condition.”

The insider adds:

“Johnny is very sensitive about being talked about in a negative way… He hates the idea of his fans having any disparaging or incorrect opinions of him. Lately he has been obsessed with the idea that people make up false stories about him … He was full of energy and there are no signs of ailing health.”

In fact, Lily-Rose Depp‘s father “loves the rock star look” where one is “very slim.”

“Johnny actually likes the fact he has lost some weight… He idolizes rock stars like Iggy Pop and Keith Richards and they have always been very slim.”

Regardless of his situation, we wish Johnny well.
