Johnny Depp has gotten an easy ride the past few weeks. Immediately before Katie Holmes ripped out Xenu’s heart (and ATE it), Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s split was all we could talk about. What went wrong? Did he cheat? Is he a drunk going through a mid-life crisis? Did Vanessa “nag” him into leaving? Did she always want more, more, MORE? Well, it seems like Team Depp’s take was “Johnny had to leave Vanessa because she was driving him crazy because she was so demanding and crazy, and that’s why he had to sleep with Amber Heard.” Team Paradis… well, Vanessa didn’t have much to say. But I’m assuming her side of the story was something along the lines of “We have two children together and you’re going to leave the relationship like this?” Since their split left the tabloid covers, it seems like Depp and Paradis have been reorganizing and reviewing everything. Johnny flew to France last week, and now the UK tabloids claim that he’s enjoying a “family vacation” with his kids AND with Vanessa. So now they could be getting back together?
He was reported to have moved on to a younger woman following the announcement of his split from Vanessa Paradis last month but Johnny Depp seems to have had a change of heart. The actor has flown to his home in the South of France for a family holiday with Vanessa, 39, and their two children, Lily-Rose, 13 and nine-year-old Jack.
While the couple had agreed to keep a cordial relationship for the sake of their kids, it appears as if Johnny has now decided he wants more. Instead of spending his break from filming The Lone Ranger in New Mexico with rumoured new girlfriend Amber Heard, he rushed to see Vanessa and presented her with an antique gold pendant inscribed with a message about how he will always love her.
A friend told The Sun ‘They are having a family holiday to show the kids they are still a strong family even if those two are split or not. But the fact he presented her with such a touching gift, it’s almost as if they could make another go of things. Johnny wants to be with his family, he’s a very family oriented man, his kids mean everything to him.’
The couple needs to spend time together with their kids away from the distractions of Hollywood, according to the friend and they decided on France where they have spent some of their happiest times.
Eh. I mean, it’s great that they can still enjoy each other’s company and that a family vacation doesn’t have to end in hair-pulling, tears and retribution. But I think reconciliation probably isn’t in the works…? It’s more likely (in my mind) that Vanessa and Johnny are just trying to act like adults and spend some quality time with their kids. But… if Vanessa does end up taking him back, that would be very interesting, wouldn’t it?
