This week’s tabloids are full of rumors and innuendo about Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s relationship. These rumors have been swirling for about a month pretty consistently – first it was “Johnny Depp is having a mid-life crisis and Vanessa is pissed” and then it was “Johnny is miserable and Vanessa is holding on and Johnny is consulting lawyers.” And now it’s “Johnny is miserable, consulting lawyers and Vanessa is a Jealous Monster who won’t let him bone Eva Green.” First up, Star Magazine’s story which is basically like last week’s Radar story:
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s world has been crumbling behind the scenes!
“Johnny’s been having relationship problems with Vanessa that have been brewing behind the scenes for a while,” says a source close to Depp. “He started making phone calls to friends toward the end of last year, talking about how unhappy he’s been with Vanessa and how he wants out of the relationship.”
Johnny Depp’s longtime love is green with envy over his sexy young co-star in the upcoming horror movie Dark Shadows, sources say. Vanessa Paradis – who’s had two children with Depp during their 14-year-romance – is seething over his onscreen chemistry with Eva Green, according to insiders.
“They’ve always had a strange relationship, often spending weeks apart… now I think Johnny’s absences are more serious. His friends think he’s going through some sort of mini-midlife crisis.” The source adds that Johnny is “really struggling to deal with the crucial problems between himself and Vanessa.”
One of the biggest problems is Vanessa’s jealousy – “When you’re one of the sexiest men in the world, attractive women are constantly throwing themselves at you – and Johnny can be a bit of a flirt when he’s not home. That’s driven Vanessa crazy in the past, and I’m sure it’s just added to their troubled and helped push them to the brink.”
Meanwhile, “Johnny’s been drinking more over his unhappiness with his and Vanessa’s situation,” says the source. “His behavior is starting to raise some red flags. He just doesn’t seem to be handling this well at all, and it’s heartbreaking.”

Vanessa is jealous, you say? Let’s see how she feels when Johnny starts taking breaks with Eva Green in his trailer! That’s the way to mend a 14-year-relationship with the mother of your children, right Johnny?
“Vanessa is afraid that Johnny has fallen head over heels for Eva,” a close source told the Enquirer. “Like Vanessa, Eva is a French actress and model, and Vanessa senses that she’s exactly Johnny’s type. Friends have even remarked that Eva looks like a younger Vanessa. Johnny has brushed off Vanessa’s fears, but it’s caused so much tension that rumors are flying they’re about to split up.”
Vanessa had originally lobbied for her younger sister Alysson to get the Dark Shadows role, but sources say “Johnny wanted Eva all along. He personally had her audition for Dark Shadows and they became close on the set. She spent lots of time in his trailer.”
“Vanessa’s worst fear is that Johnny wants someone new in his life,” added the source. “Even though it all seems to be in her head, it’s making Johnny sick.”

Look, none of this paints a very attractive portrait of Johnny Depp. He seems like he’s knee-deep in some kind of mid-life crisis, or maybe he’s just so insanely rich, he’s completely lost perspective on everything. All I know is that it really does seem like he’s spending more time drinkin’ and sluttin’ up the world than he spends with his family. For shame, Johnny.
