French music artist Vanessa Paradis looks like she did not take the break-up from the father of her children very well. Life after Johnny Depp looks blue.
The split between Hollywood star Johnny Depp and his sweetheart of 14 years, French singer Vanessa Paradis, was publicly confirmed on June 19. The actor released the break-up statement on “Entertainment Tonight”. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children.”
Of course, amicably means they did not throw things at each other or fight over who gets the dog and who gets the piano. But a break-up, after so many years, always leaves marks. While Depp infirmed all rumors about him dating and spent a lot of time in the company of pal Marylin Manson, exploring his musical qualities, Paradis chose to show herself into the world with the risk of being discussed.
On June 14, the 39-year-old singer and actress attended the Cabourg Festival of Romantic Cinema in Paris, to promote her new movie, “Je Me Suis Fait Tout Petit”. According to observers, cited by People, she looked “tired. She just didn’t look well or happy”.
Depp, 49, started dating Vanessa Paradis in 1998, after breaking-up with supermodel Kate Moss. The couple’s first child, daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp was born in May 1999. Three years later, Paradis gave birth to a boy, John Christopher Depp III.
The couple never had wedding plans, but Depp says that their relationship has a “real foundation” and “a real strong place to stand in life”, because of the kids. “You can’t plan the kind of deep love that results in children. Fatherhood was not a conscious decision. It was part of the wonderful ride I was on, he had told ABC in 2006.
