Johnny Depp’s new girlfriend Polina Glen is reportedly ‘hiding out in her father’s flat’ in Russia amid her budding romance with the actor.
The 23-year-old gogo dancer, who was recently reported to have moved in with the Hollywood star, 55, declined to comment on her links to Johnny as she stepped out in St Petersburg on Saturday.
During her casual outing, Polina opted for a casual display as she sported denim skinny jeans, a cream biker jacket and a baseball cap emblazoned with the Russian word ‘Любовь’, which means ‘love’.
Her father Gennady, who at 51 is four years younger than Johnny, is said to have shouted ‘Polya run!’ when he saw a Russian journalist near the family’s abode.
It was recently reported that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has been besotted with the ex-model, with the couple planning to wed in the near future.
It is unclear when Polina returned to Russia, but there are whispers that – despite the romance rumours – she was also in her home city for a dance event on April 13.
Gennady reportedly deepened the intrigue over his daughter’s love match by revealing her ‘affair with Depp’ was ‘very old information’.
Polina’s father indicated he had known about the relationship from the start of last year, but refused to reveal whether his daughter was happy with the 21 Jump Street star as he said: ‘I don’t know… It is necessary to ask her… She didn’t say.’
Mr Glen, who works in consumer protection, added: ‘I will not give an interview without Polina’s permission. Her personal life is her own thing. So I cannot tell you about it.’
Polina’s mother Irina, 52, a vet, who appears to live separately from the ex-model’s father, echoed: ‘We do not comment on her life.’
MailOnline has contacted Johnny’s representatives for further comment.
Johnny was pictured in a steamy embrace with a ‘mystery woman’ earlier this year at a hotel in Belgrade, Serbia – but DailyMail.com recently identified the woman as Polina.
The bombshell was also pictured walking alongside him in May 2018 while he was on tour in Moscow with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.
Polina is a trained dancer and choreographer, and is said to have been living with the multimillionaire actor at his Sunset Boulevard mansion.
A friend close to Polina recently told Dailymail.com: ‘Polina met Johnny at a party in LA. She gets invited to a lot of stuff and ran into him. She’s a dancer and a hot girl.
‘She was just chilling at the party and didn’t know who he was when he came over to introduce himself. They hit it off.
‘He’s got legal issues with his ex-wife and then here’s this beautiful young Russian dancer, that doesn’t want anything and doesn’t even know who he is. The Russian girls don’t know him. They have no clue about actors and people always look different in person.
‘When she found out who he was, she was happy.’
Johnny’s relationship with the gogo dancer is said to be his first since the breakdown of his turbulent marriage to American actress Amber Heard.
At the age of 17, Polina worked as a bar top dancer at a St Petersburg nightclub called Nebar, revealed The Mail on Sunday.
In 2012, she was awarded the title Miss Nebar in a beauty contest with a prize of 100,000 roubles (£1200), and has since opened her own dance school in the city.
One of the judges, writer Alexander Tsypkin recalled Polina as ‘a very intelligent and clever girl who ‘had something to talk about’.
A man she dated in her late teens – named Daniyar – labelled her ‘a typical girl from the provinces’, while a female pal added: ‘She got to university early, and studied and worked at the same time, all by herself, without anybody’s help.
‘She is not light-headed, for sure, and no-one assisted her. I do not know how it was in the USA.’
A former dance teacher in St Petersburg also sung her praises as they shared: ‘She was always cool, beautiful, and confident – and always very hard-working. She was outstanding because of this capacity for super hard work.’
