Johnny Depp's Daughter -- Mystery Illness Revealed

3/8/2007 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny DeppNine days after Johnny Depp's 7-year-old daughter was rushed to a London hospital, the cause of Lily-Rose's mysterious ailment is being pinned on a rusty tack.

According to In Touch, "the wound was left untreated" and "blood poisoning developed. It has now spread through her body and has affected her vital organs."

While there have been several conflicting reports on the severity of Lily-Rose's condition, Depp's reps tell the AP that she is "doing much better." The actor has reportedly not left Lily-Rose's bedside since she was admitted to the hospital on February 28.

She must not have gotten a tetanus shot. They last for ten years, and this is a reminder to everyone to make sure you keep it up to date.

When she stepped on the rusty tack she should have been taken to the doctor for a tetanus shot and anti-biotics to prevent exactly what she got. They are very, very lucky people she is still with them. So terribly sad. I guess they just didn't think it was a serious wound. I wish her a speedy recovery and keep your shoes on llittle luv.

I don't g et all those milllions of dollars, a rusty tack is dangerous, did they wait to long now that it spread to the entire body, when i was a child i was in my grandmother's basement without shoes on and i stepped on a big nail and my parents took me to the hospital asap and i got a tennous shot....i knew johnny would be right by her side, i wonder if it happened on his private island.

Unfortunately, when you have young children, you have to be more alert to their needs.
It seems that this went too far to reach a state to have a child be admitted in such serious condition with damaged organs. Celebrities tend to be too busy with themselves, like B. Spears, and think more of themselves than anyone else. When
young children are neglected, there has to be an awakening. It may take something
dramatic, like this episode, to make the parents slow down and pay more attention to
their children.

All Democrats should boyoctt Faux News , for lying about Obama attending a Islamic madrassa. Faux is "unfair and unblanced." They're nothing but the American Al-Jazeerah. All they do is promote the corrupt Bush administrations disastrous poloicies.

Thanks for reminding me why I'm reading the book by Neal Boortz, "somebodys gotta say it".

Jerks like you trying to put a stranglehold on getting all to goosestep to your love everybody but those who disagree with you righteous nonsense. When you or yours have served this Country let me know. Your claims of loving it are questionable.

And stick to the topic. Your blog site is all watered down flowery garbage. Get creative and think outside the box of those you goosestep too. Having a free and open mind is a wonderful thing.

Now what are your thoughts about Johnny Depps crisis? Pick a better topic to insert your garbage into.

OMG people! SOme of you act like one of the parents stuck the poor child with the tack. She's a kid for cripes sake and stuff happens to kids. Get a freakin' grip on yourselves. It doesn't surprise me that Johnny didn't leave her side. The way he talks about her, you know she is the world to him. Hope all turns out well.

Seriously people, this type of infection does not just happen immediately and can't be blamed on the fact that she may not have told her caretaker. There are MANY symptoms which would preceed her becoming critically ill. Horrible pain, fever, etc. In addition, tetanus has nothing to do with this. As a nurse, I agree with the statement regarding the importance of immunizations, but this is a bacterial infection, not tetanus. There is no way to know who dropped the ball here, parents, nannies or doctors. But this doesn't just show up all of a sudden. No matter what, many prayers to this sweet girl. Best wishes for a complete recovery.
