Should we believe the reports? If so, there’s trouble in Paradis for Captain Jack Sparrow.
People Magazine reports Hollywood A-lister Johnny Depp is in hot water. He and his love of 14 years, singer Vanessa Paradis, are calling it quits. According to People, Depp, 48, and the Chanel model, 39, have not been in public together for more than a year.
To the movie-going public, Depp is a star. He is best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The pirate is the central protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise. In the yachting industry, the actor is more familiar. For instance, he is the celebrity owner of a charteryacht often cruising the Bahamas.
This week’s office water-cooler question: will the split lead Depp to rename his Bahama yacht charters motor yacht, VaJoLiRoJa?
The boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack.
If Johnny drops Vanessa, can we assume the multi-syllabic boat name will shed its current first syllable – leaving us with JoLiRoJa? We kind of like that – if you say it fast enough it sounds like, “Jolly Roger” — a perfect name for this 156 foot yacht of distinctive character.
But wait, what if it’s Vanessa forcing Johnny to, “Walk the plank?” If she keeps custody of the yacht, the new name could be VaJoLiRoJa. Has a nice sound to it – kinda rolls off the tongue…
Perhaps the best name for the yacht is RANSOM, as in Depp’s reported $300 gross profit sharing booty from Disney’s Pirates movie franchise.
