Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis split after 14 years
After months of dogged rumors that they were headed for a breakup, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis confirmed on Tuesday that they're no longer a couple.
The pair "have amicably separated," a rep for 49-year-old Depp tells CNN in a statement. "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children.”
Reports that their 14-year relationship was on the rocks began circulating earlier this year, but Paradis, 39, reportedly brushed off the gossip as false.
The pair have two children together, Lily, 13, and Jack, 9.

About this blog
Our daily cheat-sheet for breaking celebrity news, Hollywood buzz and your pop-culture obsessions.
Hi, i think that i noticed you visited my blog thus i got here to return the choose?.I'm trying to find things to enhance my website!I assume its ok to use some of your concepts!!
You know thus significantly relating to this topic, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always care for it up!
does Vanessa look like she has a case of a bad under bite, like a bull dog?
Good job couple. Marriage is a stupid idea unless it's temporary and for a specific purpose. If you love your freedom and you love marriage, then there's hypocrisy involved.
MId-life crises are NOT attractive. Even on Johnny Depp. Big jeers to this move. Wore out the older model and bought a pony for the new. Path-etic. Still love him though!
And all the ladies' panties just dropped and they broke out their rabbits. I can't hate ladies I would trade shoes with him in a second.
i mean, its obvious how Johnny Depp really is, i read somewhere charlie and the chocolate factory was tim burtons way of helping depp out of the closet.
She has weird teeth. Like Cabbage Patch Kids teeth. I wonder what kissing her was like? Her bite marks must be horrendous! Can you imagine being chased by her teeth in the forest?
Boo-hoo... I'm so sad for them. Haaa haaaa... goodbye "corpse bride" .. that's what happens when you LIE, a few months ago she used to say "not at all ... we're doing fine... !!!" Silly pseudo-stars
I feel bad for them. But let me get this out there, WHY IS EVERYONE POSTING THINGS ABOUT POLITICS??? YOU WANNA KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT POLITICS? GO TO THE POLITIC SECTION IN CNN!!! Sorry i had to use cap locks but still knock it off!
Hot D##m he's going back to chicks!!
1) Was Hillary involved in the domestic terror operation called "Fast and Furious."
2) Will she be indicted along with Obama for crimes against America?
3) Stay tuned for the new reality show:
4) THE OBAMA IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS
5) Live on CSPAN this Summer 2012.
Saul Alinsky, can't you read? Or do you really think Obama somehow broke Depp and Paradis up?
Wouldn't it be great if CNN installed filters for Obama, etc. to remove them automatically the way they do when someone tries to post something with "bad" words in it? Just have a program that evaluates posts and automatically deletes them, if, for example, they are substantially off-topic. They could also cross-reference posts from IP or MAC addresses, and if they see some machine posting the same basic message to multiple different unrelated boards, just auto-delete them all, and ban that IP or MAC address from posting on CNN! What a great idea! Then people like me wouldn't have to wade through a bunch of ignorant comments that have nothing to do with what the post was about. to read and take part in the conversation. Such posts (as those about Obama either screwing up, or not screwing up whatever thing these people want to think he did or didn't do) should I would think violate the CNN.com's TOS.
OBAMA = GOD
ROMNEY = NAZI
BUSH = NAZI
REAGAN = ADULTERER
Do you wear your tinfoil hat with the shiny side in or out?
You mean the gun fiasco that was initiated under Bush? That's what Obama and Clinton need to answer for? Something that happened years before? That makes sense.
Saul, a liar, was unable to pass CIA pre screening due to low intelligence. He could not pour beer from a boot with instructions on the heel. However, he did pass police physicals and now works in the academy towel room. alinsky...hmmmmm....never heard of him. must be from Greece or North carolina.
Obama Lied – 300 Mexican Politicians Died with "Fast and Furious" Weapons... Holder didn't stop his terror campaign until after he killed Agent Brian Terry... Treason and Terrorism... Arrest Holder, Impeach Obama.
yawn. big shocker. thanks for sharing.
A successful fourteen year relationship isn't exactly 'using someone up and spitting them out' and Vanessa is not some unknown woman without her own career or resources.
They had a good long relationship which would NOT have been lengthened by marriage, they are going their separate ways. The children are still loved by both, and the fact this is an amicable ending to the relationship should benefit the kids as well. People's lives change, and they change more mercurially when they are famous and on the move all the time. Cut them some slack and for F's sake get those racist would-be political masterbators off the comments board!!
Has he not always been single. I don't think they where ever married, so why does this come as a suprise. Hope they keep it nice for the kids-that's who it will really effect!
So Johnny's single? Here's my number, call me maybe.
i am so crushed.
What is President Obama hiding?
1) Fast and Furious was created to reinstate the assault rifle (or stricter) ban by showing easy access to guns by drug cartels.
2) The death of Brian Terry the border patrol agent was not the first. Prior to Brian, there were over 200 deaths in Mexico due to these guns. Brian Terry’s death just attracted the attention of politicians.
3) The President OK’d the start of the program.
4) As the program continued, President Obama was informed of the deaths occurring in Mexico due to guns that had slipped away.
5) President approved the continuation of the program, that the mounting deaths were acceptable and necessary casualties to justify the passage of a gun ban.
6) This is what the President fears will be revealed; he traded hundreds of Mexican lives for his ideological goal of a gun ban.
7) Impeachment proceedings begin next week.
um... what does anything you just spouted have to do with the story?
Man Jessica, I didn't know Johhny Depp had a hand in that. Maybe he was just undercover during the program, like when he was part of that police unit that used to infiltrate highschools back in the 1980s.
Johnny's on the prowl.
Probably very tough being monogamous when you basically can have any hot woman you want and not even have to try.
STFU, idiot. If you want to go rant against Obama, how about tie it into something that has to do with politics?
I hope they find some real dirt on him and impeach him. Fast an Furious wouldn't have happened without approval from top levels of government.
Get real, you're not fooling ayone. You've NEVER liked Pres. Obama, and never accepted him as being POTUS. This is just the excuse you and millions of other teapartiers were looking for to hold something against him. This whole thing is much ado about nothing. Except for the fact that a Federal Agent was killed, that is sad.
But this program started under GWB and you nor anyone else cared about the thousands of different "programs" that the US Govt. ran everyday that ended in disaster. People like you are the reason everything Obama has tried to intrduce in Congress got blocked. Just because his name is attched to it, and nothing else. And this Fast & Furious program is the same thing.
Give a Republican a House of Representatives, and an impeachment cannot be far behind....it's what they do. Last week they impeached a house cat.
hey, vickie....the verb you are looking for in one of your racist rants – is "lose" – not "loose"......are you aware this article is about an actor splitting with his long-time girlfriend??.....you are far off the faux news, o'reilly, limbaugh beat ....take a couple of aspirin and chill....
To the Central Scutinizer: You're dumb all over,a little ugly on the side!
People should think twice about marrying someone who grew up in a different country and culture.
You can end up feeling lonely when you can't connect about shared experiences in the same culture
or country. I've seen many such marriages end. What do you have in common? What are the
values you grew up with? When values differ, you are headed for divorce.
Oh so true – because two people who come from the same country and culture NEVER get divorced!
I've seen many marriages where the couple grew up in the same city, same neighborhood, everything. Divorced anyway
I doubt that has anything to do with it. My guess is Johnny just gave into the pressure of knowing he could have any hot girl he wanted, any day of the week and decided to go for it.
That may be true in some cases but there are many mixed international couples that make it work too - which contradicts what you said. Besides, what would you say to the high divorce rate here in the US with same cultured couples, as you put it?
Johnny, I'm here for you in kc if you need a hug, backrub, someone to listen, share some wine at sunset with....:))) Plz come play your guitar in kc, it will help you get over the pain, we all go through with a break up. You have 2 beautiful children together and you are a great dad, good luck to all , God bless and I'm here for you if I can help :))))) kcsue
"Larry, your an idiot." Oh the irony.
He used her up and spit her out. How original.
Aww that suck. Bet wishes for both of them.
Johnny Depp, you should go back to Winona.
Just read on another site that Demi Moore is dating Joe Manganietto of True Blood. That is a huge step up from Ashton Kutcher. Joe is a real hunk! I would however like to see Demi dates someone closer to her age or she may suffer the same heartbreak again!
I think you mean Joe Manganiello. And poor Joe.
What does Joe see in her?
@Vickie-oh dear...have you grown up on Fox News? A few college courses would have enlightened you but since majority of Americans are too uneducated to understand real issues, people like you let similar uneducated morons like Bush run the country down to its ruins. I guess in the near future, the ignorance and apathy of millions of Americans will bite this country in the a@# if we are going to continue to elect actors and rich Texans with no brains to run this country.
Wow! Where have you been for the last four years? Speaking of idiocy and ignorance, dude! Take a refresher course in economics and history and get yourself educated. CNN and MSNBC don't count. Yikes!
NICE !! One of my followers, the Kool Aide has kicked in. I'm betting you are trying to graduate from one of the temples of higher education we dems. have provided in order to brainwash your already dense skull. IT'S WORKING !!
She must have seen Dark Shadows...
For every hot chick there is a guy tired of burying his schmeckle in her.
Cccc...can't we all just get along
So right Pat – Vickie...you are an idiot.
Dear Johnny, Your life is your business, not mine (or anyone else's). Best Wishes, Missouri Fan
I think half the population isn't that upset about this one, Mr Depp, you might have to hire security... 😉
Obama is a Kenyan socialist hell-bent on destroying America.
Jack, unfortunately, you're just a moron.
what a dumb comment-it's people like you that are hell bent on destroying America!
I think you may have something there. I believe in the end he is going to be a part of terrorism in America. First of all he should have never been able to be a president or any political officer because he is not American no matter what he says. I don't believe he was born anywhere in the US. He has run the United States in the ground and we may never survive it. And I am sure since he is buying up all the votes he can that people will be dumb enough to put him back in office. I could live the rest of my life very wealthy with just the money he and his gorilla wife have spent on 'shopping and vacations'. It isn't cheap to run Air Force One..... and they do it so often for nothing. So don't let anybody tell you different.... you are on the right track here.
Is it hard to type on a keyboard with your hood on?
Believing something in the face of overwhelming evidence is called delusion.
There are people in Hawaii who remember the birth, the local paper's own reporter reported the birth based upon hospital records. The State of Hawaii have verified it countless times. His political opponents ifrom both parties n the 2008 election would have verified it.
Obama's gonna register all the zombies to vote Democrat- he's a shoo-in. Plus, he's black... don't underestimate him. Did you see Night of the Living Dead? He's SUPPOSED to be in charge, dude.
What the heck does politics have to do with this couple splitting?
Good luck to both of them...love your movies Johnny.
Vickie-admit it. You just don't like black people.
and you, sir, are an ignoramus..........
to jack: and you, sir, are an ignoramus..........
@Jack, so are you suggesting Obama is somehow responsible for the end of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis' 14 year-long relationship?
Do you have any evidence to support such an assertion, or are you just vomiting diarrhea out of your face-hole on CNN's discussion boards by posting incendiary and generally false, stupid, and malicious comments where they don't belong because they have nothing to do with the story?
This board or blog is about Depp and Paradis. I don't think Obama is responsible, no matter how much you'd like to blame him for everything you see as wrong in the world. While you're at it, why not add that he was the second gunman on the grassy knoll, that he was once somehow John Wilkes Booth, and Dr. Samuel Mudd, both; that he is the reincarnation of Benedict Arnold, Adolf Hitler, and the Roman Emperor Nero, the guy who killed Archduke Ferdinand, and Pontius Pilate all simultaneously?
As his first term draws to a close, all of you who are for some reason thinking and writing about him where the story is about the break-up of a couple of famous actors, perhaps it's time you got used to his being president. I'm not a fan, didn't vote for him, won't vote for him, think he's been pretty bad, but I will LMFAO if he wins reelection, just because I know what it will do to all of YOU. On balance, better a poor president than a stupid one, (like his predecessor)! So sit and spin, losers!
So too bad Helana Bonham Carter does not have a twin sister...She seems to be Johnny Depp type..and Tim Burton's type..and Tim found her first...three very unconventional, very creative, people..... Peace, Love, Joy, to All....
Smart man not to actually get married. He'll still have to pay child support, but at least he will be able to keep his money, house, business, ect... Good for him!!!
She's incredibly wealthy in her own right from modeling. Not on his scale, but she'll never have to worry. Losers always go there.
Yea, heaven forbid men should have to ay child support to actually help feed and clothe their kds.
Not necessarily. Don't they live in Crazifornia? They were together very publicly for 14 years, and who knows how long privately before that? Plus they have not one, but TWO kids together... a case could easily be made for alimony based on common law marriage. His only hope of not having to support her is that she won't seek support, because she doesn't need it or she doesn't want it, or values her reputation or harmony or peace and quiet more, etc.
If she doesn't make at least close to what he makes, he's probably going to have to part with a fair chunk of cash, if only to pay the lawyers. That's who wins in virtually 100% of contested divorces: the lawyers. They usually even make their daily wages on uncontested divorces, it's just that when there's a fight, they stand to make a whole lot more.
On the flip side, in the unlikely (I'd say, based on I've heard of him and have really never heard of her, except in connection to him) event she has or makes way more money than he does... who knows, she might end up having to pay HIM alimony! But this being the US, and I think they live in CA, (I don't know this for a fact, it's just where most movie and film actors seem to be, there and New York when they live in the US...)
Johnny's going into depps trouble...
Well Im single Jack Sparrow...give me a call 🙂
If you think obama is to blame for everything thats happened in the last four years you are surely out of touch! Mr. george bush has wrecked this country and nearly ruined this country trying to finish What his daddy could not do. if he cared about his country he would have done right by the people who love this country!! If we get another republican in office we are surely ruined!!! leave the man whos in there he trying to clean up somebody elses screw ups!!!
You will be singing that song for 20 years. People aren't going to dance to it anymore.
Larry, your an idiot. why post politics on an entertainment artical?
Um, wrong article Larry.
That right..... all you people want to blame Bush.... you are so stupid... Bush gets all the blame but it is the guy there now that is killing us. What other so called president's wife took Air Force One for her shopping trips. Why not stay in the US and shop so the money stays here.... but no she has to spend a fortune just to fly somewhere else to shop. There are fools like you born everyday and that is what is wrong with the US. Another country will own us before he is done..... and people are just to blind to see it. Which are you... black? Gay? Illegal? Those are his supporter... because he is buying votes to get re-elected. I can only pray that he will loose before we are totally wiped out.
You seem to be the most stupid person on this blog! I am not black, nor gay, nor illegal, but I would vote for Obama again. If you only vote for a person, because of the color of his skin, YOU ARE A RACIST. You keep saying he's buying votes. Have you heard of Citizens United? The GOP & their billionaires are going to try to buy this election for Romney. I wonder exactly what they expect from him in return for all their money? Tax cuts for the rich? Take away all regulations, so big business, especially the oil companies, can just run amuck? Think about that when you post your next idiotic statement.
Hery Larry, can you and the rest of the idiots get back to the story here or go to another site to post your political trash talk. You're obviously as blinded as those you are responding to.
@Vickie - Give it a rest and go get some sleep. Have sweet dreams of Johnny Depp...
I think it is very sad for both of them and the children. I really liked them together and I think she kept him grounded. I hope he does not move back to the states it could be dangerous for him mentally and physically.
Huh? Well, it has obviously trashed your mind....
There are seasons when all hell breaks loose – just before the dawning of the blessing. Letting go is simply a step to letting wholeness become.
Hey Johnny.....call me....
Its so shameful that the high rate of divorce is from the white countries and this is due to lack of discipline.In Africa you hardly hear of divorce here and there.the whites do it as if divorce is a normal way of life what a shame.
This couple is not married...
Yeah, that's who you want to emulate, Africa. Honestly, some people just don't think things through before they post.
I am not sure of divorce in Africa but you do here a lot about child rape. South Africa has an extraordinarily high rate of murders, assaults, rapes (adult, child and infant). The incidence of rape has led to the country being referred to as the "rape capital of the world". One in three of the 4,000 women questioned by the Community of Information, Empowerment and Transparency said they had been raped in the past year. More than 25 per cent of South African men questioned in a survey published by the Medical Research Council (MRC) in June 2009 admitted to rape; of those, nearly half said they had raped more than one person.[
Newsflash – divorce is tied directly to the financial status of women. The reason women in the US divorce more is that they have become more financially independent, and thus aren't chained to bad relationships. How prosperous are African women right now? 1 + 1 = 2 Are we getting the picture?
But in Africa you just take the cows or goats back for a refund and your free again!
So you prefer the African option huh? D you mean the one where the wives have to stay or risk being murdered by a husband who considers the wife property? Or the option where women have to stay for economic reasons no matter how often they are beaten? Or the one where the husband sleeps with every other woman he can get his hands on without ever using condoms then give his wife AIDS? Please be specific.
Yes, Africa is such a glowing example for all of us in so many areas. With the growing Muslim influence there, I'm sure people are afraid to get divorced for fear of getting killed/stoned/shunned, etc.
That's because is Africa the only way for a woman to get a divorce is to get her head chopped off.
So very true. American people divorce or break up like changing underwear. And who pays the price? The kids. And that is shameful. But nobody has morals anymore. We are a lost country!
Assuming you're right, which I doubt, as I'm not sure how you could possibly get reliable data to base such an assumption on, that there is a typical rate of divorce in "white countries" versus countries in Africa... which I don't think you are...
You're comparing apples and pagers. These are not only NOT the same things, they're emphatically different. Also, is she really from Africa? If she is, I'd say she was (or was the descendant of) Europeans herself, so I'm not sure how Africa even entered the conversation.
The US (even amongst African Americans) has a very different culture from Africa, what it means and what it takes to be married is different, especially given that both places (the US and Africa) are so vast that to make a sweeping generalization about the culture of either is absurd... there are many diverse cultures and socio-economic realities in different regions in both places.
The fact is relationships ending (whether nuptials were formally exchanged or not) is much more common in people who work in and around show-business than in many other fields. I won't even try to speculate as to why that might be, but a 14 year relationship between Hollywood types is like a 140 year relationship in most other places. They far outlasted so many of their contemporaries... (they were together for an eternity compared to some!) that it's something to marvel at.
In fact, they were, according to the article, together as a couple almost long enough to raise a child from birth to adulthood, and that's something to be proud of, nowadays. It's sad that that's something to be proud of, but nonetheless, many relationships, even marriages don't even last a year, they made 14. Give them a break, and a round of applause!
Thats because everyone there is so fukcing ugly!!! Guess you left to find something prettier or wash dishes...
This is sad for the children but what's just as sad is that a 14 year relationship for celebrities is actually considered a success, most don't come close to lasting that long. For the haters of Depp, you may have your opinions of him but he really is a nice and genuine person. I had the opportunity to meet him in New Mexico on-set and let me tell you that you couldn't meet a nicer or more down-to-earth person. The same cannot be said for many other celebrities.
Soo many people are hypocrites. Depp can "live" with a woman for 14yrs., a multi-millionare, without even marrying her, and have kids. But if an NFL or NBA player does the same thing, oh, they're dogs. Ultimate hypocricy the way people are in the US.
Although it is sad anytime a couple splits, it's gross that celebrity splits are considered "news". I'm sad for their kids, but the most upsetting thing about this article to me? The fact that Johnny Depp is almost 50. When I was 11, I had his "21 Jump Street" pin-up on my wall...I'm getting old!
Where's the beef?
Fox News aspires to be the propaganda Channel that would have made Joesph Goebells proud. After all the Repubs are the modern day Na~zis.
I would take great pleasure in placing a steaming pile of pooh squarely on Johhny's forehead.
Wonder if Depp will move back to the states? I bet the accent from the Pirates trilogies got to her .......
He's an f maggot.
This is ancient history!
they were a very good couple
T0ilets are white, my ba11s are blue, i'm in the wrong blog, and you circle j3rks are too.
Fox n friends is like my cup of joe n d morning....sorry to hear they actually split but thats life n d fast lane....why do actors/actress ever get married? they r not like us hard workin normal folk so why even try to have a normal life with the whole marriage/kid thing. hell i work 80 hrs a week some weeks n barely see my kids n husband n go crazy with stress of not feelin like a good mom but im puttin food on the table n a roof over the heads of my girls. i can only imagine what a strain makin films causes on family life. but hell they got the money to divorce n not feel a thing money is true happiness for their kind.
They were never married
we never know what is tomorrow all is happened in a second but life still goes on n grab ur opportunity to bring back some good things.
14 hours per day on a set is "hard work"–wealth does not necessarily mean laziness. Sure, actors are overpaid, but a blue collar position does not always indicate "hard work"–also, not our place to judge why anyone gets married. Why do factory workers "even get married"?
@romneysux: obama sux even worse and his time is up. He blmed Bush for everything and then made it worse. He has had his turn.
What in the hell does this have to do with the article above. GOD I'm sick of idiots like you bringing politics into EVERYTHING!!!
Obama? WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER!
He made it worse, huh? How do you figure that? Last I knew we were losing jobs at a rate of 750,000 per month under Bush. Obama has created 4.3 million. Obama wins on that one. Unemployment is coming down, even though it is slow going. GDP is up. Consumer confidence is up. Small home building is up. We are out of Iraq & working on getting out of Afghanistan, and the nation has stayed safe under Obama. Do you remember 911? Who was President? Obama saved the auto industry. You know, I could go on & on. Your statement was not only stupid, but not even factual. You come from the party of old white men who think they know what's good for this country. I personally resent the fact that they have made it their mission to tell us women just how to treat our own bodies. Maybe you should contact the House, & tell them to work on getting jobs on their agenda, instead of passing abortion bills. So again, just because Romney said he made it worse, you believe him. This coming from a man who has NO policies to talk about, and if he did, he change the story, being the world's biggest flipflopper. He has no platform except to give tax cuts to the rich. Think we've been there before. Look what they did to the federal deficit. It is so easy to blame Obama, but don't forget, the gop came right out & said that their mission was to make him a one term president. Just think what good could have been accomplished if the right would have actually tried to work with him & get something done to benefit this country. Just one more thing, what did Romney & Obama do yesterday. Obama met with all the world leaders in Mexico, Romney was in Michigan making pies. Guess who I'd rather have as President.
Hey moron...this is about Johnny Depp.....go find another site and do your whining...god, you cons are pathetic losers!!!
Don't feed the troll dude.
WORST. REPLIES. EVER!
Worst. Troll. Ever.
LEAST. ORIGINAL. TROLL. EVER!
Fox news stinks
Fox doesn't have 'news'. just propaganda.
Funny... would you believe a lot of people say the same of CNN?
@ Helga-really?! Who? Fox "news" watchers? At times, MSNBC seems to have a liberal slant, but CNN reports facts and is relatively objective. Whereas, Fox "news" will report crazy non-factual stories (e.g. "Obama is a Nazi! You heard it here first"), is an unabashedly, completely ultra-conservative channel, and relies on straw dog arguments, hype, and rumors to report "news". Even the Fox "powers that be" would not claim to report objectively. Just sayin'.
Always sad when parents of younger children don't make it. Best of luck on a great friendship that leads to healthy parenting.
So sad hope they can be friends and be there for there kids which i am sure they will be
stay friends and be there for your children. sad to hear this i thought you two might make it. God bless
Amazing they lasted that long with all of the pressure they have to deal as a Hollywood couple. Can't imagine how hard it must be...
That "pressure" is precisely why they chose to live in France rather than in the U.S. I think the choice not to live here can certainly be credited with the fact that they lasted as long as they did. They were allowed to live a much more normal life in France than they would have been able to do here in the U.S....sadly enough.
wish them the best, and be parents first than anything else xoxoxoxo
This is what happens when you agree to cameo in the 21 Jumpstreet movie
If I were Jonny Depp, I be bangin a lot of honeys everyday of the week
Crisp anal cobbings on a nightly basis.
so true! screw marriage and commitment! why would any man with a brain want to get married today? unless you just really wanna lose half your money in the eventual divorce.
go have fun johnny!
Now maybe they both can take a bath.
He's prettier than she is.
Ha! Best comment on this blog...hilarious! Pass the soap
