Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis are splitting up, report says




Perennial nice guy Johnny Depp and his life partner Vaness Paradis may be splitting up, if we're to believe RadarOnline's breathless report that he's falling apart. Maybe he played Hunter S. Thompson one too many times and he's starting to crack up.

"Johnny isn't handling anything well right now,"a source tells the site. "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."

So what's going to happen to the 48-year-old actor and the mother of his two children? "Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship," the source said. "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."

Johnny and Vanessa have been together since 1998, so it's tough to say whether this is true or not. After our dreadfully incorrect dismissal of rumors that Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were splitting up, however, we're hesitant to rule either way.
