American movie star John Christopher Depp III was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, on June 9, 1963. His father John Christopher Depp was a city engineer and his mother Betty Sue Palmer was a waitress and homemaker. Young Depp was later relocated to Florida soon after the death of his grandfather and there he was raised together with his sisters Debbie and Christi Dembrowski, who in the future is a personal manager; and his older brother D.P. Depp who in present day becomes a screenwriter. A year after his parents divorce at his 16-year-age, Depp dropped out of Loft Studio school in Los Angeles, California, in expectation of becoming a rock musician. In an attempt to follow his dream, he joined a band called The Flame, with whom he toured the Florida nightclub circuit and who at the end dubbed themselves The Kids, preceding their sign up as the opening act on an Iggy Pop tour.
