JK Rowling buys Johnny Depp's former yacht
JK Rowling has bought Johnny Depp's yacht.
The author of the 'Harry Potter' book series has put £22 million down to secure the sale of the luxury 156-foot vessel, which was previously owned by the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star.
The 50-year-old writer was fascinated by the ship's five cabins and three large decks after she took it out on a family charter trip.
And the 52-year-old actor had previously undertaken over £5 million of works done on the luxury boat, which can hold up to ten guests and nine crew, before he sold it off to a unknown buyer, The Sun newspaper reports.
JK is now planning to spend holidays on the boat with her husband Neil Murray and their two children 12-year-old David and ten-year-old Mackenzie and 22-year-old daughter Jessica from a previous relationship.
Meanwhile, Johnny was reportedly forced to sell off the boat by his wife Amber Heard as it was originally bought for his ex-wife, and the mother of his two children, Lily-Rose, 16 and Jack, 13, Vanessa Paradis.
A source said at the time: "Johnny loved that yacht. But he bought it for Vanessa. And Amber is still jealous of her."
