Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis Split

Johnny Depp and Vanessa ParadisThat’s right, ladies.  Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have officially announced, through their publicist, that they have “amicably separated”.


It wasn’t all that long ago that we heard the rumours of a split, something Depp was quick to deny.  Around that time Depp was even caught “sneaking out” of a building in which Ashley Olsen resides and reporters soon put two and two together, assuming he had spent the night at her apartment.


It would seem clear now that the recent widespread speculation about their split did in fact have some fire behind the smoke, although Depp had denied the rumors to The Sun newspaper in May.


Depp and Paradis have two children together who they have been raising away from the spotlight.  Lily-Rose, 13, and her brother Jack,  nine, are the real ones you feel for.


This really is the year of the unexpected celebrity break-ups.  Other unlikely celebrity separations during 2012 include Heidi Klum and Seal, Ronan Keating and his wife Yvonne, and Dannii Minogue and Kris Smith.
