Lily-Rose Depp Escaped Paris Attacks
Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp escaped the terror attacks in Paris on Friday night after leaving a house party in the French capital early.
The 16-year-old daughter of the Hollywood actor and French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis was in Paris when a number of bloody shootings erupted across the city.
She later posted a ‘selfie’ picture on Instagram and declared in a caption that she was “home safe” after leaving a friend’s party before the attacks took place, but her pals had locked themselves indoors.
“This was right before I left the house tonight to go to a party where all my friends are still locked inside waiting for this to be over,” she wrote.
“I’m so lucky to have left when I did and to be home safe but I’ve never seen more panic in my life than on the streets on my way home. This kind of cruelty is heartbreaking. Sending love and prayers to everyone anywhere near this danger. Stay inside#prayforparis.”
The teenager then posted another photo on the social media site after a number of followers criticized the model for sharing a ‘selfie’ along with her post about the horrific events in Paris.
Alongside a photo of the Eiffel Tower, she wrote, “People were complaining that my last photo discussing the Paris attacks was a selfie. If what you’re worried about is what photo I post to talk about the Paris attacks and not the attacks themselves then you are very small minded. That was the last photo I took before the attacks happened. It is a terrifying and emotional night for everyone here in Paris, please only express good vibes and love. that is what we need right now.”
More than 120 people were killed when terrorists targeted a number of locations across the capital, opening fire in restaurants and bars, and detonating bombs outside the Stade de France, where an international soccer match between France and Germany was taking place.
Gunmen also took more than 100 revelers hostage at an Eagles of Death Metal gig at the Bataclan venue in Paris. Officials have since confirmed more than 80 died in the siege, but reports suggest the bandmembers escaped unharmed.
