Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis: Is It Over?

by at . Comments

Are Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, his partner of 14 years now, a thing of the past or headed in that direction fast? Such rumors have been swirling this week.

The pair has not made a public appearance together for more than a year, and the Dark Shadows star's solo trip to the Golden Globes fueled the split rumors.

People reports that America's favorite actor and the French singer-actress have called it quits, having led "separate lives" for some time now.

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis

The couple has long maintained separate homes, in West Hollywood and France.

A source allegedly close to Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis said the following:

"They bet that they could move to California for long stays for his career. They bet that things could continue there as they had in the south of France."

"They lost that bet. Vanessa has gone seven years between albums and several years between film projects while he became Jack Sparrow," the source said.

On January 6, a tired-looking Paradis was spotted shopping with daughter Lily-Rose, 12, at Los Angeles The Grove, adding to the speculation of trouble.

The couple also has a nine-year-old son, John Christopher Depp III.

For what it's worth, in December 2010, Depp gave an interview to Extra about why he and Paradis had no plans for marriage - now or down the line.

"I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don't need somebody to say you're married."

"If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not... But the thing is, I'd be so scared of ruining her last name. She's got such a good last name," he said.

Neither party has commented on the rumored breakup.

I think Johnny Depp is a fabulous very versatile talented actor!! If they are splitting, it is their personal private business. The only people who will get hurt either by the gossip or the split are their children. There are times in life when two people are apart for whatever reasons... whether it be by choice or for work they can grow apart. That doesn't mean they don't love one another... it means that they have just loss a feeling of togetherness. Sometimes they can relight that spark and other times the wick is wet and the spark is gone. Lets give them their privacy!! For those of us who have gone through our parents separating can relate to how hard it is without outside people speculating what is really going on. Stop the gossiping!!
DO IT FOR JOHNNY & VANESSA"S CHILDREN!!

I went into the first one with fairly good epoxctatiens because I love good pirate movies and this was getting great reviews. I walked out thinking it was long, ponderous and boring.The second one was also long, ponderous and boring but at least it had the kraken scene at the end which was kind of cool. So that makes it my favourite. I haven't seen the third one.I might see the fourth because it's apparently the shortest one. They've also replaced the dead wood Bloom and Knightley with the much better looking Cruz. No pirate movie should be over 120 minutes.

Wrong Rumor!!! Vanessa Paradis is actually in France promoting her new movie. Yesterday night she was invited by "le grand journal" (french speaker can get that video online for free- it is in french). The question was asked to her and she denied the fact that they were separated - clearly, simply said "no we are not separated" she also added that these rumors affected their family and especially their children! then she smiled and said "We divorce every winter, get married every summer and I have had about 12 pregnancies already! ;-)
So --End of the conversation - They are separated for work situation, not separated in life (not yet anyway) ALL BS!!!!!!!

This Useless anti-American shouldn't even be let in this Country. I wouldn't pay 50 cents to watch any of his movies.

Hollywood 'cafe society' are working on the split. They want Johnny for themselves. Shame, he was safe in France and now they have him.
Worked on his weak points and big ego and hey presto - vanessa and johnny are history. Yes, sad that a society can make or break you!

I hope this is just a rumour. They really showed the industry what it is like to have principles, be dignified and to be committed to a relationship. They are internationally liked and are never the subject of squalid tittle-tattle. Their relationship and family values have been (and still are) a great example.

I think it sad, but the world is sad, so...
