Kate and Pete are still young, in love, and moving more of Pete's stuff into her house. They may not have a lot of people rooting for their relationship at the moment (or ever?) but Kate's ex Johnny Depp isn't one of them. Johnny usually keeps a low profile unless he's promoting a film (yay for Pirates!) and tells the Daily Mail that he approves of her relationship with Pete. Granted, he hasn't spoken to Kate since they broke up (9 years ago!) and has never met Pete. Still, he obviously has fond feelings for her and wishes her well. Here's more:
"I was not good for Kate," he says. "But she's a strong girl and a great girl and very smart."
He says he was shocked at her treatment by newspapers, who nicknamed her Cocaine Kate.
"Dragging her through the mud like that - they are weird and two-faced.
"Let her be! I have never met Pete Doherty, but I think he has talent and he and Kate could be great together.
"She's got a great brain on her and she's a good mummy."
Kind of strange they haven't spoken in so long but whatever. Johnny has totally settled down since his bad boy days and they obviously run in different circles. It's sweet that despite all that he still can stick up for her. More of Kate and Pete so
