Trouble in Paradis

Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis


She was the French star said to have tamed the unruly bad boy with a long standing relationship that seemed unbreakable. But now amidst rumours of separation, is one of Hollywood’s finest actors set to join the racks of his divorcee peers?


A source commenting on the supposed breakdown, said; “people around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end. Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship. They’re not married but they’ve been together for years and have kids together so it isn’t as easy as just breaking up. Johnny is so talented at acting, but he doesn’t seem able to hide how badly things are going right now.”


The couple, who have been together fourteen years are said to be living apart and haven’t been seen together in public for a year, with Depp, 48, attending The Golden Globes over the weekend, alone, without Paradis, 39, at his side.


Speaking in 2008, Paradis told The Daily Mail, “I knew I would be with Johnny long before we ever met. I believe in love at first sight, but my connection with Johnny was even stronger than that. I loved Johnny years before I met him. It might sound dumb, but that’s how it was. When we met each other, we just knew, “This is the one.” And we were right. I can’t believe any two people love the way that we love. People might think it’s easy to love someone like him because he’s so gorgeous-looking. But the thing about Johnny is that he’s even more gorgeous on the inside.”


False accusations only or the sad inevitability of a celebrity relationship? Only time will tell.
