Some people have already come to me to ask whether it is or it isn’t River in this first photo alongside Johnny Depp. As this “mystery” was raised again in a facebook group of which I’m a member, I decided to clarify it here.
That’s NOT River. This photo was taken in 1994 at a birthday party thrown by Depp for fellow actor Mickey Rourke at the Metronome in
New York City. The guy in the photo who people usually assume it’s River is actually the guy behind Johnny Depp in the second photo. I don’t know who the guy is, but you can tell it’s the same person by his shirt. If you repair closely, you can even notice the top part of the shirt he’s wearing underneath the jeans blouse.
