Have Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis Split? See Their Relationship Timeline (PHOTOS)

10 Things About Depp
Fun facts about Johnny!
Has one of Hollywood’s long-standing couples hit the rocks? After nearly 14 years together, superstar Johnny Depp, 48, and his lady love Vanessa Paradis, 39, are said to be on the outs. Tissues up, everybody.

While nothing is confirmed, Celebuzz has a timeline of their romance rumors amid reports that their relationship may be ending — if it’s not over already.

When did the rumors begin? Tabloid reports began to surface early this year that the two were on the verge of a split, citing sources that said the two were fighting all the time. One report claimed Johnny had secretly enlisted a legal team to figure out how to leave the relationship. Although he and Vanessa never married, they have two children together and common law marriage legalities could be an issue given there is no prenuptial agreement. 

What are their friends saying? People.com reports that various sources close to the couple have revealed the two “live separate lives.” One insider says they have already split and that “It’s so sad.” People notes that the two have not appeared side-by-side on a red carpet for more than a year.

What happened? The two seemed to have a romantic life together away from Hollywood, raising a blissful family in the French hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour. Although Vanessa is a performer as well, after appearing in Elisa in 1995 she decided to concentrate on her personal life and raise their two children: Lily-Rose Melody, born in 1999 and Jack, born in 2002. Vanessa has since returned to acting (she currently has two movies in post production). Now, reports say the two are rarely in the same city and only live as a couple when they are both in Los Angeles. There is a nearly 10-year age gap between the two, Depp is 48, and Paradis is 39. 

What does the future hold? So far, reports indicate that unless there is a specific legal agreement in place, she could be entitled to half of Johnny’s earnings. That is a considerable amount of money considering his Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has made billions — with his paycheck from the fourth installment alone reported to be about $75 million. That’s a lot of booty! Some say Johnny is not taking the split well and he’s practically inconsolable. Friends are said to be worried about his well being.
