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.”
They never married despite being together since 1998. Here’s wishing The Lone Ranger star, the French actress and their kids the best in this tough time.
