The rumours are getting stronger that all isn’t well in
the world of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. Latest reports in the US suggest
that the star has secretly split from his longtime girlfriend.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star began dating the French
singer in 1998 and they set up home in the south of France with their two
children, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, nine.
But a new People magazine article suggests that Depp's
huge success has caused tension in the relationship amid speculation the couple
is now leading separate lives.
A source told the magazine, "Vanessa went seven
years between albums, and several years between film projects, while he became
Captain Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribbean)."
The rumours are further fuelled by allegations that
Vanessa intentionally skipped the Paris premiere of Depp's The Rum Diary in
The insider says, "She went instead to a concert
that night. It was weird and pretty clear: you're in town and don't go to the
premiere of your partner’s film? One which he starred in, (and) produced?"
The couple last walked a red carpet together at the Cannes
Film Festival in 2010.
Meanwhile, a representative for Depp had yet to respond
to reports about the split.
