This is really sad news, y'all. Johnny Depp and his longtime lady, Vanessa Paradis, have officially split up! Yeah, I know there's been loads of rumors lately, but I didn't want to believe them, did you? They seemed like such a regular kind of couple, living with their two young children, Lily-Rose and Jack, in France and avoiding the limelight. Well, they did recently move to Los Angeles. Still, this was one couple you felt was truly in it for real, and not for publicity like Kimye some other celebs.
Johnny and Vanessa have been together 14 years and their kids are still young. Lily-Rose is 13 and Jack is 9. The couple seemed really solid, much more solid than a lot of couples who actually get the marriage license. Vanessa said to Elle magazine:
I love the romance of 'let's get married,' but then, when you have it so perfect ... I mean, I'm more married than anybody can be -- we have two kids. Maybe one day, but it's something I can really do without.
Well, I guess she will be doing without it now! Too, too sad. They just seemed so normal. Sigh. Between these two and Heidi and Seal, I'm losing faith!
Johnny's career always outshined Vanessa's, though she is very famous in France for her modeling and singing. Johnny's new movie, Dark Shadows, got so-so reviews and hasn't exactly burned up the box office. He also just appeared on the MTV Movie Awards, playing guitar with the Black Keys. Maybe he shoulda been home, working it out with Vanessa! Okay, I won't get bitter here.
Johnny's new movie, The Lone Ranger, will be out next May. Wonder who he'll take to the premiere? Please, Johnny, don't let it be someone trashy! And I'm here if, you know, you want someone to cover the event. In a strictly professional sense, of course.
What do you think about Johnny and Vanessa's split?
