It’s no secret that Johnny Depp enjoys a rockstar’s lifestyle. And why shouldn’t he? With such an illustrious film career, the Pirates of the Caribbean star has undoubtedly earned it. But partying too hard and too often (while struggling with substance abuse, no less) always comes at a price. The anonymous source reports,

There are probably a lot of reasons he wants to check out, but some say the Amber drama still affects him. He’s famous for falling down, picking himself up, brushing himself off and moving on, but he can’t do that forever, and at some point something is going to give…Johnny is way too old to be acting like a young rock star.
