Depp daughter’s E. coli scare

According to, actor Johnny Depp has spoken out about his family’s scare following his seven-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose’s bout with E. coli two months ago.

The story notes that Lily-Rose was rushed to a London hospital after contracting the E.coli bacteria, which caused her kidneys to shut down. Filming on Depp’s latest movie Sweeney Todd was halted so he could keep a vigil at the youngster’s bedside with partner Vanessa Paradis (who, according to other media sources, he may finally marry this summer) .

Although Lily appears to be back to her normal self already, Depp was quoted as saying, "It gave us a great scare. What got us through this wasn’t the strength of Vanessa or me but our daughter and her incredible ability to make us feel OK even though she was very unwell. She was super-strong."

The actor further added, "It was a very bumpy patch but she has come through it beautifully and unscathed and she is now as healthy as she always was. She is wonderful."
