Johnny Depp is fleeing the country to save his dogs.


It may have just sunk in for Johnny Depp that he’s not above the law after all.

Depp, who brought his two dogs into Australia illegally to film the new instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean, was given an ultimatum by Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce to take the dogs out of the country by Saturday or they would DIE.

Depp, 51, realised it was probably a bad idea to try and smuggle his puppies – named Pistol and Boo – into the country and is now preparing to flee Australia so his dogs don’t die.

Hey Johnny, you get good-guy points for realising how stupid your decision was and doing something to fix it. That’s more than Justin Bieber ever did for his monkey that was abandoned at an airport.

Depp and his wife, 29-year-old Amber Heard, are supposedly flying out today. Apologies to any die-hard Depp fans out there: we doubt he’s going to ever come back after filming on Pirates wraps.

Johnny Depp’s daughter is all grown up and looks a lot like her dad. Funny that.

Johnny Depp just got married (Shhh, it’s a secret).

This video proves it: Johnny Depp has drunk all the rum.
