Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis Officially Over
A rep for the Oscar-nominated actor issued a statement confirming what the blogosphere has been gabbing about for months.
“Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children,” was the terse blurb issued early Tuesday afternoon.
Depp began dating Paradis in 1998, following a lengthy engagement to Winona Ryder and a long-term relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. To outsiders, their relationship was one of the most rock-solid in Hollywood. But according to sources, the two have been leading separate lives — and have been doing so for the past two years, tattles insisted. Constant bickering over everything from their living arrangements to Johnny’s “midlife crisis” has driven a wedge between them that’s so great they’ve been sleeping apart for months.
There was also dish that a “miserable” Depp, 47, had fallen for his Dark Shadows co-star, Eva Green, 31. Last January, sources close to Johnny and Vanessa likened the situation to a “trial separation that has turned permanent.”
Johnny and Vanessa, who never wed, are the parents of two children: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10.
