Lily-Rose Depp kisses girlfriend as ‘The Idol’ is deemed ‘exploitative’

PDA in LA.

Lily-Rose Depp passionately kissed her girlfriend, 070 Shake, at LAX on Thursday after she arrived back in the US from the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The “Voyagers” actress, 23, threw her arms around the 25-year-old “Cocoon” rapper, whose real name is Danielle Balbuena, as the couple — who went public with their romance earlier this month — shared a steamy smooch on the sidewalk.

For the reunion, Depp opted to go braless in a white crop top, black sweatpants and a pair of dark shades.

The daughter of Johnny Depp had just landed back in Los Angeles after spending the last few days overseas to promote her controversial new series, “The Idol,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday.

In the Sam Levison-directed HBO series, which also stars and was co-created by The Weeknd, Lily plays Jocelyn, America’s greatest pop star who is trying to make a comeback after having a breakdown.

The TV series garnered mixed reviews, with several critics slamming the model for showing too much nudity.

“Rarely does a scene go by without the camera showing flashes of her breasts or ass,” the Hollywood Reporter wrote about Lily in a scathing review, adding, “You start to wonder if this is building to anything, and by episode two it seems likely that it’s probably not.”

Another added that the series “heavily exploits” Lily, who is reportedly nude and or having sex in every episode.

“I hope she’s okay with it all because it comes off very exploitative,” the critic tweeted.

There was also controversy surrounding Levinson, who also directs the hit drama “Euphoria,” during filming. He was accused of ramping up the sexual content and nudity of the upcoming HBO drama and turning it into a “rape fantasy.”

However, Lily denied the claims, telling The Post in March that Levinson, 38, was “the best director I have ever worked with” for “so many reasons.”

“Never have I felt more supported or respected in a creative space, my input and opinions more valued. Working with Sam is a true collaboration in every way — it matters to him, more than anything, not only what his actors think about the work, but how we feel performing it,” she said.

“He hires people whose work he esteems and has always created an environment in which I felt seen, heard and appreciated.”

“The Idol” premieres on HBO on June 4.
