Once a break-up hits the cover of People Magazine, I’m much more inclined to believe it. After weeks of rumors, it looks like there may be some truth to the fact that Johnny Depp and his longtime partner Vanessa Paradis are breaking up. The couple have been together for 14 years, and have two children together.
Once upon a time, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis lived a quiet family life far from the spotlight in the sleepy French hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour.
But that time is no more, and now the couple largely reside in L.A. – when they are in the same city at all.
Depp, 48, and Paradis, 39, who are parents to Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, have not appeared side-by-side on a red carpet for more than a year. Multiple sources tell PEOPLE in this week’s cover story that the relationship is all but officially finished.
In fact, some in their circle say the couple of nearly 14 years have already split. Says one insider: “It’s so sad.”
I hope this isn’t true. I’ve always loved them as a couple. I like how laid back and private they are. That seems like the key to a successful Hollywood marriage. Maybe this is all just gossip and there’s no truth to it.
Speaking of gossip, there are spies that told the Enquirer that Johnny Depp and Eva Green got too cozy during the filming of Dark Shadows. Also – apparently Angelina Jolie has “reached out” to help her ol’ bud Johnny. According to Now Magazine, “They stayed in touch after The Tourist. When she heard what was going on she reached out to him to see how he was coping and urged him to work it out.”
