Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ Relationship Timeline


Partners and coparents. Before Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife Amber Heard
for defamation, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor was in a 14-year
relationship with Vanessa Paradis.
Depp met the French model in Paris in 1998 while he was filming The Ninth
Gate. “She was wearing a dress with an exposed back and I saw that back and
that neck, and then she turned around and I saw those eyes, and — boom!”
The Edward Scissorhands actor told the Daily Mail in 2011. “You have this
feeling — I can’t really explain what it was, but I had it when I met her. I saw
her across a room and thought: ‘What’s happening to me?’”


Although Depp went on to get married when he tied the knot with Heard in
2015, he and Paradis, who split in 2012, never wed. They share two children
together: Lily-Rose, born in 1999, and Jack, born in 2002.

In a 2010 interview with Extra, the Nightmare on Elm Street actor revealed
why he and the Heartbreaker actress never exchanged vows.
“I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul
to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, OK you’re married,”
he told the outlet. The actor continued, “If Vanessa wanted to get hitched,
why not. But the thing is, I’d be so scared of ruining her last name! She’s got
such a good last name.”
In 2012, Depp and Paradis went their separate ways after 14 years together. In
a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone, the 21 Jump Street alum addressed the
split. “The last couple years have been a bit bumpy. At times, certainly
unpleasant, but that’s the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there
are kiddies involved,” he said.

Depp added that he kept his act together during the separation for the sake
of his children.
“In terms of the breakup, I definitely wasn’t going to rely on the drink to ease
things or cushion the blow or cushion the situation,” he said. “‘Cause that
could have been fatal. I felt it was my duty to be real clear throughout that. I
had something pretty serious to focus on, really, which was making sure that
my kids were gonna be cool.”
