Johnny Depp Splits from Vanessa Paradis

Johnny Depp Splits from Vanessa Paradis

Johnny Depp and his longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, are calling it quits.

The 49-year-old actor and Vanessa, 39, “have amicably separated,” his rep tells

“Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children,” adds the statement.

Johnny and Vanessa began dating in 1998. They have a daughter, Lily, 13, and son Jack, 10, together.

Earlier this year, the French actress responded to rumors of a breakup, telling a TV panelist that they were “all false.”

The split was first reported by Entertainment Tonight.

    They were an awesome couple. Bummer.

  • Creed

    To be completely honest I never really liked them as a couple.. but I hope they keep it cordial for the kids

  • Creed

    maybe winona and johnnny can get back together

  • Chiara

    They fell in love because of their shared lack of teeth hygiene

    KASHKJASHHKFASHDLAS omgggg yess!! finally ! he is too hot for her =)

  • julie

    Sh*it. I really thought they were the ones for each other. She seemed so in love with him in the interviews and he praised his family. I really hope he didn’t cheat as some say. And I am just so sad. They seem like genuinely nice people. Hoping for a clear divorce, kids don’t need any crap.

  • Gossipgirl

    This is news?!? Depp has been bearding and living the single life for at least 6 months. Both he and Paradis denied that they were not together throughout that time. What’s the point of going public now, when it has been public knowledge for so long? Dumb rich celebrities….whatever!

  • solecito

    14 years is not bad for a celebrity couple. Other than Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, I can’t think of a celebrity couple who stayed together until death.

  • elle

    Johmmy Sepp seems really odd and unsettled in his mind these days. Probably hates being stalked by photographers and like little suri cruise it has driven him a little nuts. sad

  • cloco

    NO NO NO NO NO !!!!!!!!!!

  • nicole

    call me Johnny :)

  • Losa

    Is this a news? I don’t get it. The newspapers wrote it months ago.

  • Ha!

    It seems as if he’s going through some mid-life crisis. He HAD looked alcohol related bloated for awhile. It’s a real shame. I loved them together. It seems as if no one in the industry can have a HAPPY longtime relationship.

  • Aqua

    I really hoped the split rumor weren’t true.They were my favorite Hollywood couple.I always found them to be interesting.Hoping everyone and everything stays amicable.

  • Amanda

    Well if these two can’t make it there’s no hope for the rest of ‘em.

  • too bad


    yes but in recent interviews they both denied it. They are not married so maybe the did so because they were getting all the legal things in order.
    I always get suspect when couples don’t spend a lot of time together. Off in different places. They stopped spending together and stopped supporting each other. That is a big red flag

  • Seatle

    I certainly saw this coming…

  • Stunna

    Wow. 14 years…….. I never understood why he got with her. I don’t get her appeal. She’s not pretty IMO. I feel guys like her just because she’s tiny and has a cute face. I’ll never understand how she got Lenny and Depp. Well, she must have something. She’s lucky, at least she got ‘em. Anywayyyy this is horrible news. Especially for the kids

  • Gh

    Wow, I really didn’t see this coming. So the rumors about their split that was speculated recently and was denied by both of them was true. I heard that it was Eva Green who caused this problem between them after she and Johnny worked on their luckluster Dark Shadow. Sad for their kids.

  • deadpool

    Seriously the dude has been having a mid life crisis for like the last four years.

  • Sarah

    @Gh: Are you serious? I haven’t heard of Eva Green since Dark Shadows.

  • living in a box

    i hope Johnny’s career didn’t end up like Kevin Costner,Kevin career hit rock bottom after he divorced his wife..

  • sara

    Only one true love for him, and that is Winona Ryder!

  • Reality Check

    If they split, there’s no hope for anybody in the show business.

  • Huh?



    How long before “candid” pics of Amber Heard and Johnny get released. she was just recently spotted boarding his private plane and rumors of them have been going on since Rum Diary.

  • anne

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! they made such a good couple:((
    now he has to come back to winona ryder lol

  • lalalalalala

    Shes too good for him. Hes gross now a days

  • Lailah

    Let’s not get into superficial things such as looks and careers and face the fact that they have two young children together and were adults and wanted to protect them from all of this. I hope they find happiness and love for the sake of their kids and legally, since they were not married. Best of luck :(

  • KATE


  • Catherine Paris

    I was really hoping that this was not going to be true.

  • lola

    Nothing is forever..

  • Love The Shoes

    Hey, it seems amiable and I doubt there’s another person in the mix. Some people stay together forever and some don’t and it doesn’t lessen or diminish the love they have. look at Courtney Cox & David Ar?, or Angie and both her exes. Grow it up. Life is life and not a fairytale. GB their family and I wish them well.

  • Love The Shoes

    @Stunna: Boy, are you that shallow? Really? I would hope that YOU would hope someone went for the deeper you over the outer one. Gee whiz! What a vain and vapid populated world we’ve become. She obviously was beautiful to him.

  • Zoe2

    I knew they had split because he is moving to Nashville. He hangs out with Jack White and Johnny Depp is from the south. Born in Owensboro Kentucky. Same place George Clooney was born. I hope he opens a music venue in Nashville!

  • Lola

    Shame that he has been with Amber Heard since the filming of Rum Diary. Wonder when that will come out.

  • NYC

    Horrible news and the kids are at a very impressionable age = sad

  • Cookie_Monster

    Everytime Angelina Jolie works with a married actor, she wrecks his marriage. Her soccer team of Jolie-Pitt kids, is the only glue that keeps her from going the extra length these days.

  • Todd

    Yay!! She had him for waaayy too long.. I saw her in Target and she looked BUSTED with a capital T

  • scarlett

    Very sad to hear the rumours are true. I feel for the kids, though actually this might mean they (the kids) end up with more privacy in the long run because press focus will inevitabley shift away from Vanessa. It’s always sad when a long term relationship breaks down, people are really quick to lay blame and introduce third parties into it. The truth of the matter is that we (the general public) haven’t got a clue what has happened between them. I suspect they’ve been apart quite a while and if either of them has moved on to other relationships then good luck to them.

  • Guy

    What is so special about this announcement, it’s only a verbal or written contract that thousands of people terminate everyday.

  • Jess

    I don’t know how to believe in love if Johnny and Vanessa are no longer a couple! :(


    WHAT ?????????????
