Johnny Depp’s Daughter Was Lucky to Survive a Battle with Deadly E. coli

Lily-Rose, the daughter of Johnny Depp and his longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, is said to survive a battle with the deadly E. coli bacteria.

The seven-year-old girl was hospitalized in London earlier this month suffering a mystery illness. It was reported at that time that she had contracted blood poisoning after stepping on a rusty nail. Despite all the persistent rumor, a member of the production crew on Depp’s new movie "Sweeney Todd" claims Lily had the deadly E. coli bacteria, which caused her kidneys to shut down.

"Everyone gasped when we were given the real reason for Lily-Rose’s illness. It was touch and go for a while," British newspaper The Sun quoted a source as saying.

"Sweeney Todd," a musical, drama, thriller flick directed by Tim Burton, has to halt its production because Depp wanted to be by his daughter’s side until she got the all-clear.
