Despite Johnny Depp’s red carpet protestations to the contrary, the facts are that his relationship with Vanessa Paradis is over. The couple have split up and each has moved on with new lovers.
Johnny denied on Wednesday that he and his partner of 14 years and mother of his two children, Lily-Rose and Jack, had split. “The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true,” Johnny, 48, said on the red carpet at the London premiere of Dark Shadows, according to U.K.’s Sun.
The facts simply belie Johnny’s red carpet denial that things are all over but the crying with Vanessa. Johnny was spotted boarding his private plane in Las Vegas last month with his new lover, Amber Heard, 26. Amber and Johnny co-starred in The Rum Diary and allegedly began their romance while still filming the movie.
But According to Life & Style Print Edition, May 21, Vanessa was not heartbroken by Johnny’s new relationship because she had already teamed up with her old pal, French singer Matthieu Chedid, 40. Vanessa and Matt recorded a duet together last year and things went from music to much more. “There are rumors in Paris that Vanessa’s dating Matthieu,” reveals a French fashion executive. “They have worked on music together over the years. And now people here are saying they’re a couple.”
Let’s be serious now. Vanessa and Johnny have not been seen together in months and she has not accompanied Johnny on a red carpet in over a year and a half. Even more indicative of the dissolution of their relationship is the fact that Vanessa failed to attend her own son’s recent birthday party that Johnny hosted.
Paradis was quoted saying: “I believe in love, and I want to believe that it lasts forever. But I’m like everyone else, you have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope and love and live.” Do those sound like the words of someone who is still with Johnny?
Let’s be serious for a moment. Even if Johnny and Vanessa have an ‘open relationship’ in which they accept each other sleeping around, there is still no way to explain their failure to spend any time together. Nor does Vanessa skipping her own son’s 10th birthday party fit in with Johnny’s denial that their relationship is kaput.
What do you think? Do you expect to see Johnny and Vanessa grow old together? Or has their relationship already grown way too old? Let us know in the comments below.
