The latest in celebrity breakup-related depression is the alleged separation of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. I heard the rumors just last week, and chalked them up to just that — rumors. Neither of the two parties have come forward with an official statement but, lo and behold, they’ve landed the cover story of this week’s People with a tale of “love gone wrong” and “their separate lives.” The cover continues to read:
After 13 years and two kids, the couple’s longtime relationship has hit the rocks. Inside the secretive stars troubled love life.
As much as I don’t want to believe it, it’s People. People never gets it wrong, and especially not on the cover. I’m interpreting this story as one of sad truth. In honor of Johnny and Vanessa’s time together, here’s a look back at some of the couple’s appearances over the past 13 years. I wish all the best for them and their children.

“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, okay you’re married. … 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.”

“I could make an endless list of all the things I admire about him, but above all I admire his immense loyalty. I love watching him when he’s thoughtful or involved in something. I love observing him when he is talking to people. I love seeing how he deals with situations. … I could go on and on, tell you I admire him as an actor, as a father and as the man he is for me. But more than anything, I admire him as a person. Not only when he is talking to me or his mother, but as a person in the world, in all kinds of situations. I think he is magnificent. Truly magnificent.”
—Vanessa Paradis gabs to Marie Claire UK about her man of 12 years and baby daddy, Johnny Depp. I think he’s pretty magnificent, too! I guess she’s not leaving him anytime soon. I’ll have to find someone else. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
