brightcove.createExperiences(); Johnny Depp‘s daughter Lily-Rose Depp has visited him in the Bahamas as he plans to remain on his private island amid his divorce from Amber Heard.

“He has no plans to return to L.A.,” a source tells PEOPLE of the actor. “He misses nothing about L.A. but his kids, and they are visiting him in the Bahamas.” According to the source, his daughter Lily-Rose Depp, 17, has already visited him on the island, and his son Jack, 14, is expected to arrive with his mother, Vanessa Paradis, in a few days.

“Having his kids around is always great for him. He has really missed his kids,” the source says, adding that Depp has also had friends “flying back and forth for visits” to the island. “He likes being surrounded by people and everyone is trying to cheer him up.”

The actor has been staying on the island since concluding the European half of his tour with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.

Depp avoided making a return to L.A. when a hearing to extend Heard’s temporary restraining order was pushed to August. Heard, who is accusing Depp of domestic violence, was granted the restraining order less than a week after filing for divorce.

In a response to Heard’s initial court filing, Depp’s attorney, Laura Wasser, alleged in court documents that Heard “is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

“Johnny was very nervous about the court date,” the source says. “He really didn’t want to return to L.A. for court. He was very relieved that his lawyer was able to figure things out for now.”

According to the source, Depp hopes to settle the divorce out of court. “He doesn’t talk badly about Amber and just wants to move on,” the source adds.

Depp will return to the U.S. in July to continue his concert tour with The Hollywood Vampires. “He seems excited about the concerts,” says the source.
