Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis Officially Split
The couple "have amicably separated," Depp's publicist said in a statement released to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday. "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."
As PEOPLE has reported, the two drifted into living separate lives after moving to Los Angeles from France. They haven't appeared together on a red carpet in a year and, an insider told PEOPLE about their crumbling relationship, "It's so sad."
The couple have two children together: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9.
