Johnny Depp is ready to pay Vanessa Paradis a massive amount as a good faith gesture and to keep their separation amicable, according to reports.

Though they were never married, the actor is prepared to give his partner of 14 years an out-of-court settlement in excess of $150 million.

Depp and Paradis separated this week, but are determined to keep the already difficult breakup amicable. A nine-figure check can't hurt.

As the couple weren't married, negotiations over financial support could be complicated, according to legal experts ... which is why it just won't happen.

Call it the opposite of Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian.

Depp harbors no ill will toward Paradis and wants to avoid legal wrangling. Said an insider: "he will make a generous lump sum payment as a settlement."

French singer Paradis is also expected to retain ownership of a house in Plan-de-la-Tour in southern France, leaving Depp with his Hollywood Hills home.

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis really have broken up for good.

The couple of 14 years "have amicably separated," Depp's publicist said in a statement released to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday, urging the public to "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."

Rumors of a split have dogged the two for months.

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have effectively been living separate lives after moving to Los Angeles from France. They haven't appeared together in a year.

The couple have two kids together: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9, making their split even more upsetting. A friend said of their crumbling relationship, "It's so sad."

Just last month, Depp denied the split that was widely reported; days later, the couple was said to be trying to work it out despite a recent rough patch.

Johnny Depp has never been one to comment about his relationship, but the rumors have been inescapable lately. Is he still with partner Vanessa Paradis?

Yes, but it's been rough.

That's the consensus regarding The Lone Ranger star and Vanessa Paradis, his love of 14 years together and the mother of his two children, 10 and 12.

Now, after Depp was linked to his Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, comes word from a well-placed source that he's "trying to work it out" with Paradis, 39.

"For the first time in a long time, he is talking about her," the source tells E! News of Depp, 44. "They both really want to make it work."

Depp has been shooting The Lone Ranger in New Mexico and returning to L.A. most weekends to be with Paradis and their two children.

A source tells us Depp has been "very calm and focused" while filming his role as sidekick Tonto, and is trying to be attentive to Vanessa.

Unlike two weeks ago, when he flatly denied rumors of a split, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had no comment on this report.

Johnny Depp was not pleased when asked about rumors that he and longtime love Vanessa Paradis have split. But he confirmed they have not!

The actor got a bit upset when reporters at the UK premiere of his new film (follow the link for a Dark Shadows movie review) asked about her.

“The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true,” he said.

Reports that he and Paradis, 39, his partner of 14 years, are no longer an item have become a recurring celebrity gossip topic, to his chagrin.

Depp walked his Dark Shadows red carpet solo, and was noticeably MIA from her side when she promoted her film, Cafe de Flore, in January.

For the acting great, who is notoriously private about his personal life, it has almost become pointless to address the rumors, in his view.

“No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite,” he said, according to The Sun. “I can’t say enough about it not being over.”

Paradis, for her part, hasn’t done much to dispel the rumors, remaining ambiguous when asked about her stance on long-lasting partner.

Don't put Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp in our celebrity breakups category just yet.

The former has finally addressed the ongoing rumors of their split, and issued a fairly strong denial of reports that they've gone their separate ways after 14 years.

Making the publicity rounds for her new movie, Café de Flore, Paradis offered a clear statement to French program Grand Journal after earlier vague responses.

"Yes it's false! Of course it's false!" the 39-year-old singer-actress said when pressed about herself and Depp, 48. "Such rumors can truly harm my family."

"We separate in winter and we get married again in summer. I'm at this point at my 12th pregnancy," she said, referencing endless gossip about the pair.

According to Paradis, what she really takes issue with is when reporters write hurtful things that end up affecting 11-year-old Lily and 9-year-old Jack.

"These rumors are the content of those magazines that end up in the fireplace or in the toilets and that's about it," Vanessa Paradis said pointedly.

The Rango star has yet to comment either way on the rumors, of course.

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.

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.

Most women might not know who Vanessa Paradis is, but they likely hate her anyway.

The French singer/actress has been dating Johnny Depp for over 10 years. Still, as she tells the U.K. edition of Elle in its November issue, don't mention marriage to either half of this couple.

"Each summer people say we're supposed to be getting married, but we don't talk about it that much," Paradis said. "He's got me, and he knows he's got me."

Paradis added:

"I love the romance of 'let's get married,' but then, when you have it so perfect ... I mean, I'm more married than anybody can be – we have two kids [Jack, 6, and Lily Rose, 9]. Maybe one day, but it's something I can really do without."

Paradis also responded to accusations that she "tamed" the Pirates of the Caribbean star. Depp had previously dated party gals such as Kate Moss and Winona Ryder.

"Tamed. What's that? Like a lion? Noooo, no, we did it to each other. Maybe I'm a good girlfriend because I'm his girlfriend. I'm not sure I'd be a good girlfriend to anyone else; the same for him. It's difficult to explain, but it's something that's natural, obvious and beautiful.
