After a difficult month, Johnny Depp is happy to be recuperating on his private island.

“Johnny is doing okay,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He likes retreating to his private island whenever he can. He hasn’t been there for a while, and really seems happy being there now.”

The source adds, “He wants to see his kids, but otherwise he isn’t looking forward to returning [to L.A.]. He doesn’t seem too worried about court though. He has an excellent lawyer who is taking care of things.”

Depp jetted to the island in the Bahamas after his final European tour date with his band, the Hollywood Vampires, in Bucharest, Romania last week. He had been on tour with them since Heard filed for divorce – and was granted a temporary restraining order against him – in late May.

Depp and Heard tied the knot on the island in 2015. He purchased the 45-acre private property, which includes six beaches, for $3.6 million in 2004. He has called the tropical getaway “pure and beautiful.”

According to a source, the Alice Through the Looking Glass star is expected back in L.A. by Wednesday. This Friday, a court hearing is scheduled to determine whether to extend Heard’s temporary restraining order.
