Vanessa Paradis is “mending her broken heart” with Lenny Kravitz, allegedly

All we’ve been talking about for the past week is the Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise divorce. Okay, it’s not ALL we’ve been discussing, but other “important” gossip stories have definitely been pushed to the wayside. Are you wondering what’s going on with Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis? You’re in luck! The Enquirer has two interesting stories, both of them centering around how Vanessa Paradis is dealing. First up: Vanessa is “mending her broken heart” with Kravitz dong. God, I hope this is true:

In the wake of her split with Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis is mending her broken heart with help from her ex-beau Lenny Kravitz. Vanessa dated Kravitz back in the early 1990s, but they stayed in touch during her 14 years with Depp, sources say.

“Before Vanessa met Johnny, Lenny was the love of her life,” a family friend told The Enquirer. “Although their romance didn’t last long, they remained close friends over the years and she didn’t hesitate to call him.”

After Vanessa and Johnny split, Vanessa leaned on Kravitz, with sources claiming, “Vanessa has been calling Lenny over the past few months while she and Johnny have been on the rocks. She needed to talk to someone who would understand and not make any judgments. She knew Lenny would be there for her, and he told Vanessa to reach out to him whenever she felt low. Vanessa usually calls Lenny in tears, but by the time they hang up an hour or two later, she’s in much better spirits and even laughing.”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

You know who else Lenny soothed right after a bad breakup? Nicole Kidman! Do you remember that? Lenny and Nicole dated in 2003 – it was a “summer romance” that extended through the better part of a year. Lenny sure goes in for the kill when a woman is good and vulnerable, huh?

Meanwhile, the other Depp-Paradis story is kind of blah – it’s all about Vanessa being “absolutely distraught” upon realizing how far Johnny’s affair with Amber Heard had gone. Vanessa knew something was up between Amber and Johnny during their promotion of The Rum Diary (when Johnny and Amber were photographed looking very friendly), but sources say “Vanessa can’t believe that Amber was most likely in the picture as far back as 2009” – which is when Johnny was filming The Rum Diary. Vanessa feels like “Johnny walked out on their family” and “she’ll never forgive him.” Oh, and Vanessa allegedly sent Amber a message through their respective management teams – Vanessa ordered Amber to stay away from children Lily-Rose and Jack. Vanessa “doesn’t want them anywhere near Amber… she’s told Johnny her wishes, but rumors are flying that Johnny’s so obsessed with Amber that she gets away with murder. He’s even fired two of his assistants in the past four months for not keeping up with her demands.”

Oh, and beyond that, some of you Johnny-Amber deniers had a field day with those photos last week of Amber having a photo-op with her (ex?) girlfriend Taysa van Ree. The Enquirer says that the photo-op wasn’t about romance – “Amber couldn’t wait to tell Tasya all about Johnny!”

    Lenny Kravitz is unbelievably hot. Lucky Vanessa.

    • Liv says:

      Yeah, good for her – if it’s true! ;-)

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      Agreed from the minute he stepped on the scene!

      I bet he does NOT croon American Woman in Vanessa’s ear. :)

      • sapphire says:

        Trading up in a big way!
        @Original Tiff-I think he keeps getting hotter…

      • Chatcat says:

        Tiff…yes Lenny is definately an upgrade from Deppsh*t. I have had a quiet “thing” for Len for a long time. We are of the same age and he’d be perfect for me! So Len, you are kind to help Vanessa on the rebound and I’ll still keep waiting for you to realize I am the American Woman for you!

      • Winter says:

        Why does the fact the “guess who’s” (a canadian band) song American woman, meaning go right over so many heads? Its a anti war Protest song listen to the dam lyrics the woman is the statue of liberty we canadians laughed for yrs how so many did not get it

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Lenny’s always been hot, and he just keeps getting better with age! (I also think Terrence Trent Darby is [was?] hot as hell in his day!) :D

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        @Winter, it was just a joke based on the song’s name. As the daughter and wife of two amazing musicians, I get what the song means.

        American woman stay away from me.
        It was a JOKE, my Canadian friend.

        I know how you feel about us. We live a lot in Canada, my kids go to school there and my husband is employed by a huge Canadian country. Well, Quebec, if they had it their way, they’d be independent of the rest of Canada.
        I’m glad you get a laugh at us Americans. Keep wearing those Canadian tuxedos and importing Beibers.

        PS-Bella Love Terrence back in the day and of course my all time crush, PRINCE!

      • Chatcat says:

        Tiff…winter is obviously new to CB and not only does she clearly disdain Americans, she doesn’t seem to have a quick wit or sense of humor either!

      • KAI says:

        Well, Quebec, if they had it their way, they’d be independent of the rest of Canada.

        —————
        Not true. There was a referendum in 1995 and the majority vote was against Quebec separation. It was a narrow victory, but a victory. There has been very little talk in Quebec since that time about a separation from the rest of Canada and, given the relatively stable economy compared to many other countries, I think they will remain quite for some time to come.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        I am aware of that. As I said my children attend the Quebec school system. I know from all we work with that since the government in Canada has changed they would gladly go independent.
        Had this conversation on Canada day…unless I am going to assume my Quebecios friends are all lying to me.

        That was almost 20 years ago and it barely passed. I bet the results would be different today.

      • KAI says:

        Really? Then please explain this:

        In the 2011 federal election, in the wake of a surge of support for the New Democratic Party, the Bloc received less than a quarter of the popular vote in Quebec (less than 6% of all the total votes in the elections), lost 44 of the 47 seats it held at parliament’s dissolution, and only added one seat, which had been vacated by a Bloc Québécois member six months prior to the election. The seats lost included that of Duceppe, who resigned as party president and leader. By electing only four MPs the Bloc failed to reach the minimum of 12 seats required for official party status in the House of Commons. The same fate that they dealt to the PC party back in 1993 had been delivered to them by the NDP, although the Bloc’s loss was not as severe. MPs without official party status are treated as independents and must sit in the back row of the opposition benches. They are permitted just a few questions each week in question period and those MPs cannot sit as voting members on parliamentary committees.

    • bns says:

      Lenny >>> Johnny

      These days, at least.

    • Ginger says:

      +1 Lenny is SEXY! And multi talented…definitely a trade up

    • Violet says:

      Yep, let’s hope it’s true — it’d be a real upgrade!

  2. Jayna says:

    It wasn’t just a summer romance. Nicole Kidman was engaged to Lenny.

  3. Eleonor says:

    Lenny Kravitz dong seems a great way to mend a broken heart.
    You go girl!
    Edit: the next one (for Lenny) to mend will be Katie Holmes? Busy weeks.

  4. beyonce's bump says:

    Lenny does not do it for me. But good for Vanessa all the same.

  5. Jen34 says:

    I’m not sure I believe this, but if it’s true, I’m jealous.

  6. amoi says:

    it seems like a ton of gross body odor would be involved in sex with lenny, vanessa, and johnny. kinda grossed out.

  7. Aussie girl says:

    I don’t know if it’s true but I hope it is. Vanessa deserves some happiness. Jonhnny can suck on a bag of dicks! Lolz!

  8. lafairy says:

    They were together something like 4/6 years in the 90′s so it was far from as quick as the enquirer says it, but they would totally make sense, since her has not been in a serious relationship and they would be really hot together in a hippy, boho kind of way!

    Good for her and Lenny>>>>>> Johnny, hands down!

    As for Johnny I can’t believe he was once one of my fav celebrities, I can’t believe how low and despictable he has become!the perfect picture of your typical dirty old men: foolish, ridiculous and delusional!

  9. cr says:

    As much as is this sounds like a nice rebound for her, since the source is the Enquirer, I’ll have to take it with a very very large grain of salt.

  10. soulsister says:

    Lenny over Johnny any day! Rawr!!!

  11. maemay says:

    B@tch better step off!! Lenny and Depp are about the same age yet Lenny looks 10 years younger.

  12. marie says:

    If true, good for her. Lenny is hot, I’m kinda jealous..

  13. Tiegs says:

    I really like Lenny and Vanessa together, but am still a little sad about Johnny becoming such a sad, clichéd, mid-life crisis loser.

  14. A. says:

    She should write a book. I want to know how she gets all these hot good aging men!

  15. normades says:

    I don’t believe any of this! I doubt vaness is even talking to Lenny and I still don’t think that Johnny is with Amber.

  16. khaveman says:

    Lenny is super hot stuff! I’d totally go for him over Johnny picket-fence-bad-teeth Depp. I really lost it for Depp when I saw photos of his teeth.

  17. The Original Denise says:

    Finally, some good news!

  18. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Lenny Kravitz is beautiful. I SO want this to be true.

  19. yowza234 says:

    She really goes for the scarf-ed ones, huh…

  20. athina says:

    BS BS BS BS.LEAVE THEM ALONE WHY DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND????THEY ASKED FOR PRIVACY AND YOU JUST MAKE THINGS WORSE.WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE SPLIT.I WILL NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING ABOUT IT UNTIL JOHNNY OR VANESSA SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT BUT I KNOW THEY WON’T BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH TOO COOL TO COMMENT TO SUCH LOW THINGS.IT’S CLEAR THAT THE MAGAZINES WRITE THIS TO TAKE A RESPOND FROM THEM.THEY WILL NEVER GET ANYTHING FROM THEM.AND JOHNNY DEPP IS WAY HOTTER THAN LENNY KRAVITZ.

    • Aussie girl says:

      Wow you really like using CAPS

      • athina says:

        i don’t usually use caps but i am very upset about these stories.the situation is out of control.i understand why people want to know what’s going on in celebrities’ lives but i don’t get why they spread false stories with no actual facts and they are convinced that they are true.how does a magazine know what’s going on in their lives?(i am talking especially for johnny and vanessa because we never knew much about their life)why do people believe without second thoughts everything they read and start hating on people they don’t even know?

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        ARRGGGHHHHH!! No all caps please. Emphasis on certain words goes a LONG way.
        Don’t be a different kind of Courtney, please?

    • LAK says:

      Wow, you really don’t know how publicists work!!

      although you do have a point about the enquirer.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Athena-your point about people not knowing everything about this couple and being too quick to believe what they read—-aren’t you doing the same by claiming all of this is false?
      This is the very nature of celebrity gossip-nobody knows FOR SURE, it’s all just speculation and that’s part of the fun. This isn’t a Johnny Depp fansite, it’s a gossip blog. TRUST me when I tell you that Johnny Depp doesn’t need you defending his “honor”. He’s going to sleep tonight in a bed of millions with dreams of Amber Heard in his mind-he’s going to be juuuuuust fine.
      And sorry, but Depp hasn’t been even CLOSE to attractive (much less hot) in at least a decade.

      • athina says:

        no it’s not the same.i say that this is false because there are more facts that proove it false than true.there is not a single proof that this story is true except those ”sources”.probably the same sources that told us 1 or 2 months ago that johnny and vanessa were OK.i am not defending johnny, i kind of defending the couple by saying respect their privacy.and by the way johnny named sexiest man alive for 2003 and 2009.oh and there is still no proof that he is dating amber heard.and btw there is a thing called friendship which is also between men and women.

    • loldepploon says:

      depploon PUHLEASE mind your business deppsie is seeing cheap amber heard, and yes lenny is hotter than johnny he is the like the same age but he looks ten years younger johnny is not hot anymore bohoo his hot days are over, get over it you are minority here

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Easy there, athina. No need to go all Kanye Kaps on us. ;)

  21. Kaugummi says:

    Hum….I dunno.
    Lenny said many times in itw that he hadn’t seen Vanessa since they broke up.
    Plus he has been on tour since last year, I really doubt he has time for that.

    But I would be happy if they’re back together. Love them both.

  22. grabbyhands says:

    If this is true, I’d say it is a massive upgrade for her. Also, Scientology should think about approaching Johnny Depp-I bet he’s so grateful to have some of the attention off of him that he might be open to joining the fold.

  23. Gabrielle says:

    Wasn’t there recently an article where Lenny said he always regretted breaking up with Vanessa.

    I will always love Johnny Depp, but Lenny Kravitz is pretty hot too.

    • lenny says:

      ”I was madly in love with her. Vanessa was the perfect woman but she arrived at the wrong moment. I regret it. And I hope she will read this. She met Johnny Depp through me. After that, I never saw her again. She didn’t come to my concerts, we didn’t have anymore contact. I can only wish her to be happy. But I know one day we’ll meet again. And it will be the right time to talk about all this.”
      he told that to parismatch during one of his concerts in paris in 2009 he went all nostalgic, these days he is way hotter than johnny, go get him vanessa

  24. Ina says:

    found this on tumblr:

    In 2009, Lenny finally talked about his romance with Vanessa:

    ”I was madly in love with her. Vanessa was the perfect woman but she arrived at the wrong moment. I regret it. And I hope she will read this. She met Johnny Depp through me. After that, I never saw her again. She didn’t come to my concerts, we didn’t have anymore contact. I can only wish her to be happy. But I know one day we’ll meet again. And it will be the right time to talk about all this.”

    He’s only a year younger than Johnny. I hope she goes for it!

  25. tracking says:

    They would be hot, hot, hot together–hope this is true! The Johnny amber heard stuff doesn’t ring true to me, but I guess time will tell.

  26. Sillyone says:

    Good lord I hope this is true. If I remember not that long ago Lenny had said he really wanted to talk to Vanessa because he was still in love with her and wasn’t really sure what went wrong between them.

    I have always liked Johnny however if I see photos of him and Amber together I will then know the rumors are true and he will go on my shit list forever! Damn you Johnny.

    I always thought I would be team Johnny now well I am all for team Vanessa and I do hope her and Lenny rekindle the flame (he is super sexy).

  27. Lindy says:

    Man, I hope this is true! Lenny is hot. And I also hope Johnny keeps his kids away from the revolving door of conquests. That gets confusing for children.

  28. LeeLoo says:

    I love Lenny and I hope this is true. I hope they reignite whatever they had. I would love to see them as a couple.

  29. Jordan says:

    If true, way to go Vanessa! Lenny is hot and just what the Dr. ordered right after a breakup with a long lasting relationship.

  30. Paula says:

    You go girl! I hope it’s true!

  31. ernie says:

    YES! These 2 would be HOT. Google the video “Lenny Kravitz & Vanessa Paradis singing ‘Natural High’ acapella. If nothing else, they would make beautiful music together. Now, only thing Johnny has going for him is his big wallet and his publicist. Wait a few years, Amber Heard will be cat food.

  32. Rose says:

    I have to agree with Athina on this – no one knows what’s really happening with these people, and until I see photos of Johnny and Amber – and Vanessa and Lenny – together, I’m going to call bullsh*t on these stories.

    • athina says:

      i am happy to see that i am not the only one who thinks that way

      • Lola says:

        I have to agree too! It’s sad what force tabloids have. They can destroy lives and reputation and no one can stop or prosecute them for that. No one knows what happened behind the closed doors of family Depp/Paradis but everybody think he has the right to judge or to make hateful comments without any proves. I bet few weeks ago every woman which posted here such nasty things about Johnny has dreamed of being with him…

  33. girl says:

    Johnny depp looks like he might have a really ridiculous obsession with keith Richards….

  34. Aboveall says:

    For what I remember, Lenny was a “dog” with Vanessa (they didn’t finish well) so I’m not sure if this would be an “upgrade” at all…

    And if she were as worried about Amber being near her children, then why she let the children to stay so much time in US?…the children are in LA (very recent pictures of them) and she’s in France since early june…so that doesn’t make any sense

    Fake!!

  35. wilkiecollins says:

    Two images come to mind when I think of these men. Lenny’s naked butt in that video, yes please.
    And Depp in a show “Life’s to Short” on hbo his fingers are brown from smoking and not bathing its so gross looking.
    up grade

  36. LucyOriginal says:

    If she is mending her broken heart with Lenny (allegedly) , I can’t blame her. I would mend my broken heart (whatever needed mending) with him too (allegedly).

  37. crtb says:

    I don’t understand why everyone thinks Lenny is such a great catch. He wasn’t such a great husband to Lisa Bonet. He cheated on her the entire time.

    • sisi says:

      Johnny is not better than him, imo whatever the article here is indirectly telling they might have a fling/ friends with benefits thing going on, nor that they are getting back together in a relationship, lenny also made an album to show how much he regretted cheating on lisa, also in 2009 he opened about the relationship he had with vanessa during 4 years in the 90′s, he said he was the perfect woman but she appeared on his life, at the wrong time he said he regrets their split he wished her to be happy and that he will love to ‘see her’again and talk about it (what they had), so this rumor makes sense she is beautiful and lenny is hot and talented good for them

  38. please says:

    I dont believe this story, he wouldn’t go back there after 14 years and two kids that she had with Johhny Dep that would be too weird even for him.

    • just saying says:

      in 2009 he said he was madly in love with her and he knows one day they will meet again and ‘talk’ about the past and at the moment when he said it she was happily and madly in love with johnny and their 2 kids already existed and now she is free again, the source here is enquirer (not reliable) but whatever after how he talked about her it can be real she can give him another chance maybe not for a serious relationship but something bed related (if you know what i mean), i hope so, go and get him vanessa, johnny showed he is an absolute jerk douche

    • deppochebag says:

      no, not for a relationship but don’t forget about what he said about her
      ”I was madly in love with her. Vanessa was the perfect woman but she arrived at the wrong moment. I regret it. And I hope she will read this. She met Johnny Depp through me. After that, I never saw her again. She didn’t come to my concerts, we didn’t have anymore contact. I can only wish her to be happy. But I know one day we’ll meet again. And it will be the right time to talk about all this.”
      during one of his concerts in paris (2009)
      I don’t see it happening as a relationship form but as a bed-friend relationship hell yes, where there was fire, ashes remain

  39. go for it says:

    Not trying to be malicious but I’m sure what Lenny can do to her in just a night it’s way better that what Johnny did to her during the million ages she spent with him, you know alcoholics are not good in bed, and Johnny def broke her heart you can see the pics in january she looked like sh*t she never looked worse in her life a woman looks like that only when she is absolutely devastated while Depp was partying with Manson and his rocker buddies, and as you all mentioned here that interview of lenny about her a few years ago seems like he is not over her, go for the dong Van and have fun while Johnny keeps ridiculing himself and keep on ruining his career/reputation

  40. LucyOriginal says:

    Something tells me that when Johnny’s midlife crisis is over, he will regret it so badly and it will be too lately. Just saying…

  41. thinlizzy says:

    i don’t know what JD sees in Amber. She looks like a throw back to the 40′s stars but without hte mystery. I think Johnny’s into 3-somes.

  42. ernie says:

    Hey, I just figured out where JD got his dress look–from Lenny! Seriously,
    he had Lenny’s hair and necklaces in POTC. Johnny also was showing us all his guitar moves earlier this year. Who was he trying to impress?

  43. Bellaboo says:

    Lenny is yummy. He totally gives this 41 yo mom jungle fever.

  44. Julimonster says:

    O Lenny, where were you when my heart broke….

  45. Lola says:

    Lenny took drugs all the years (he brought Vanessa to take drugs) and cheated all of his women with his groupies all the time…. and this ugly man should be better than the father of her kids? You are all so ridiculous, blind and stupid!

    • hehe says:

      lol, depploon please don’t be so jealous, and here we don’t like johnny so gtfo, go to deffend papa johnny to E! online, e! is full of his crazy fans

    • Rose says:

      Lola, you’re soooo right. Lenny Kravitz is nothing compared to Johnny – but there’s a little clique of people here who are determined to hate him and accuse him of all kinds of things, even though they don’t have one shred of proof. Very cosy – but unfortunately for them, everyone is entitled to their own opinion – and the right to express it, so whether they like it or not, they’ll have to accept that there are still millions of us who love Johnny and his work, and just want to see him happy.

      • nope says:

        Rose, you are so wrong, today Johnny is.. he is just, humm, overrated? his movies are crap his life is out of control his appeal is gone, he lost it all in just a few years why? because he is just a middle aged child! he said it himself last year exactly like this “I’m just a middle aged child’, i think he needs to retire he said he wants to retire at his 50, it would be a good idea because he actually looks P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C and desperate he seems like a tool douche now

  46. jack says:

    I don’t think Johnny realizes just how many people are going to go off him in droves. Part of his appeal to me was that he was a family man, with the strength to stay away from women like angie jolie. seeing how easily he wandered…makes me wonder if he did with angie too. poor vanessa :( I can’t imagine the pain she must be going through, she seemed to really love him.

  47. sup says:

    vanessa looks like a vampire

  48. Lenny's Great however says:

    Kravitz married Lisa Bonet in 1987. Child born 88. Lisa & Lenny separated in 91 amid rumors he was cheating with Madonna. Lisa & Lenny divorced in 93. Kravitz & Paradis began working together in 90. He wrote 9 of the songs & produced her 1st English language album that was released in 1992 (some of his fans are still angry that “he wasted his best material” on this horrible French singer). They never officially said they were dating, but were seen together everywhere, from official events to nude beaches. He brought her to the US to promote her album. Kravitz admits he was “always stoned” during his time with VP & kept on staff a guy whose only job was to roll joints. They split in 1995.

    • sup says:

      oh yes those were definitely his best songs!

    • dude says:

      you forget this he said a few years ago
      ”I was madly in love with her. Vanessa was the perfect woman but she arrived at the wrong moment. I regret it. And I hope she will read this. She met Johnny Depp through me. After that, I never saw her again. She didn’t come to my concerts, we didn’t have anymore contact. I can only wish her to be happy. But I know one day we’ll meet again. And it will be the right time to talk about all this.”

      • Lenny's Great however says:

        On his way back to the US after Dark Shadows wrapped last Fall, JD met LK for dinner at Sambuca in Nashville. Commiserating over a woman who used both of them to further her career? Or JD letting LK know she was available? LK always says sweet things about ppl, but why would he go back to a much older & less attractive VP when he’s had Penelope Cruz, Kylie Minogue, Adrian Lima, Nicole Kidman & Natalie Imbruglia? LK can do better and he knows it.

      • jojo says:

        @Lenny’s Great however
        No, lenny talked about vanessa because he was nostalgic about their relationship back then nobody asked him about Vanessa directly
        Vanessa is a gorgeous woman and he knows it

  49. foozy says:

    it all started with “the tourist”

    • penny says:

      I agree, But I think ” the tourist” was the straw that broke the camels back.Vanessa absoulutely did NOT want Johnny to even be in the film and wanted love scenes cut from the film ,but johnny went ahead and defied her. That is why Vanessa did not go with Johnnny to the Oscars when “Tourist” was nominated.Also, I saw an interview with Johnny and he described Angelina as “A walking poem”. I knew it was over when I heard him say that!!

      • laura says:

        It all started with the rum diary promotion last year, in 2010 they were doing perfect going everywhere together and looking happy plus he had no chemistry with Jolie and that story VP was not at the GG is pure fiction of tabloids so false she was not there because she was in an acoustic tour concert exactly that day there’s no way she could have canceled that concert to go with him to the award show go to her wikipedia and see the dates of her acoustic tour 2010 2011, it all started with rum diary promotion when she took off the ring he gave her when they started dating in 1998, all exactly when TRD promotion started the homewrecker this time was Heard not Jolie

  50. romie says:

    I love the post that called Johnny Depp “An old fool” I had a long elaborite explanation for his disgusting behaviour but I think you nailed it honey, “JOHNNY DEPP NOW OFFICIALLY AN OLD FOOL!!!!”too funny!!

  51. romie says:

    Johhny Depp is a gross pig!!
