Depp denies breakup after months of staying mum

  • Print

It's been four months since People magazine reported Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had split. And in the four months since the headline "Love Gone Wrong" ran on the mag's cover, Depp hasn't said a thing about it. He hasn't done some tell-all interview, or released an official statement, or even a tweet.

Sometimes, maybe, it just takes time to decide on the right wording -- because Depp was addressing the breakup reports at the London première of Dark Shadows last night. And as he plainly told U.K. newspaper The Sun: "The rumours are not true."

"They are absolutely not true," a frustrated Depp continued, according to the Sun. "No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite," Depp said, reportedly sighing after his statement. "I can't say enough about it not being over."

Depp, 48, and Paradis, 39, have two children -- daughter Lily-Rose and son Jack -- and have been together for 14 years. And though neither actor released an official denial of People's breakup report in January, Paradis has commented briefly on the stories. When pressed by a French TV interviewer on Le Grand Journal this January, People reports that Paradis said that the rumours "are false," and that the suggestion of a split "could cause a lot of harm to my family and my children."

Regardless of their relationship status, Depp and Paradis certainly prefer to keep separate lives on the red carpet. By People's count, they haven't appeared at a public event together for a year and a half.
