After falling off the wagon with a thud, Johnny Depp is trying to kick booze with an at-home rehab program, sources have told The National ENQUIRER.
It’s understood Depp, 51, started treatment when family members and fiancée Amber Heard demanded he get help after his boozy speech at the Hollywood Film Awards on Nov. 14.
The rehab stint forced Depp to miss the New York City premiere of his new film, “Into the Woods,” on Dec. 8, according to a top Hollywood insider.
Depp’s absence “raised a lot of questions,” the source told The ENQUIRER.
“People were discreetly told that Johnny is relying on professionals to help him get through this fight in private.”
According to another insider, execs at Disney – the studio producing the film – have “graciously allowed Johnny to bow out of all press and events” for “Into the Woods.”
The insider added: “The decision was motivated at least in part by concerns over Johnny’s privacy. Having caregivers come to him eliminates the risk of fellow patients or clinic staff spilling the beans about his treatment.”
