Johnny Depp is in hiding on his private island in the Bahamas as his contentious divorce from Amber Heard plays out. While he's avoiding Los Angeles, he's bringing his friends and family to him.

"He has no plans to return to LA," said the source. "He misses nothing about LA but his kids, and they are visiting him in the Bahamas." Now that school has concluded, his daughter Lily-Rose Depp has scheduled a visit, and his son Jack is allegedly expected to arrive shortly with his mother Vanessa Paradis, who has remained close to Depp.
