Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis may have split up

Johnny Depp and his partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, are living ‘separate lives’, it has been claimed.

The French actress was nowhere to be seen as the Pirates of the Caribbean star mingled with his A-list friends at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

And now some insiders are saying that the long-term couple have already split up.

According to a new report, their relationship has been rocky for quite some time.

It follows several reports that the pair’s relationship is on the rocks.

One source said,  ‘Johnny isn’t handling anything well right now.

‘People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end.’

The source added that things are apparently so bad between them, the Pirates of the Caribbean star is seeking legal help.

The source claimed: ‘Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship.

‘They’re not married but they’ve been together for years and have kids together so it isn’t as easy as just breaking up. Johhny is so talented at acting, but he doesn’t seem able to hide how badly things are going right now.’

And her absence at the Golden Globes was allegedly difficult for Johnny to deal with, an eyewitness told the celebrity website.

The informant claimed: ‘He had his head down and he did not smile. He looked messy. He walked off stage and went right out the back door.’

Although they show displays of unity at family functions for children Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, they are infrequently spotted together.

While both Johnny, 48, and Vanessa, 39, were in Paris last November, she opted out of attending the French premiere of his film, The Rum Diary.

Instead, People reports, she went to a concert, which one source notes was ‘weird and pretty clear: You’re in town and you don’t go to the premiere of your husband’s film? One which he starred in, produced?

She was also noticeably absent at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film in May.

Though they have both been staying in LA, it is believed they are living at different locations.

An insider tells the magazine that the two, who never married, may have been broken up for years.

‘My sense is that this is a couple which hasn’t existed for two years,’ says the source.

Vanessa has remained at home in Los Angeles with their kids, who attend private school there, while Johnny gallivants around the world shooting movies.

While he was filming Pirates in Hawaii in 2010, he was often spotted drinking wine at local bars in and around Honolulu.

‘He would chat with girls and was very friendly and flirty,’ a source tells the magazine.

Now Depp is flying off to shoot The Lone Ranger in Mexico while, once again, Vanessa remains at home in LA with the children.

The stony-faced French singer was spotted walking through the city’s outdoor shopping mall, The Grove, on Friday – which meant she could have easily attended the Golden Globes as his date.

Though friends hope they can reconcile, it isn’t looking likely for the once-wonderful couple.

Though he told the Daily Mail last October that when he first saw Paradis ‘my life as a single man was over’, their pals say their relationship is damaged beyond repair.

‘They are both very attached to their children and things could work out,’ a source tells the magazine, ‘but they have both changed – a lot.’
