Johnny Depp confirms split from Vanessa Paradis
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have split after nearly 14 years together.
The actor’s publicist finally confirmed the couple had ‘amicably separated’ despite their repeated denials their relationship was in trouble.
Depp, 49, and Paradis, 39, have two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9.
The French-born actress and the American star who famously never married, have not been seen at a public event together since 2010.
Vanessa did not attend any of the promotional events for recent film Dark Shadows or The Rum Diaries, in which he starred alongside blonde bisexual actress Amber Heard, 26, whom Depp has been romantically linked to.
According to a source, ‘They’ve tried for months to save the relationship but have known for weeks that it couldn’t be saved.’
The ‘Dark Shadows’ star recently blasted untrue speculation about his relationship being over and said: ‘The rumours are not true. They are absolutely not true.
‘No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can’t say enough about it not being over.’
And it seems that Depp was determined to weather the bad times, making a last ditch bid to save the relationship.
