Johnny Depp, his publicist has confirmed, has split from wife Vanessa Paradis, who is a French actress and model. The two have been together 14 years.

Depp has been denying rumors that he and Paradis were on the rocks lately, although the two of them haven’t been appearing together in public much lately.

“No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite. I can’t say enough about it not being over,” he said recently.

Trying to keep your private life private when you’re a star as huge as Johnny Depp, however, is not the easiest thing to accomplish, and once the media sniffed around for a bit of trouble, word got out fairly quickly. The couple has two children, and their reps are asking everyone to respect them at this time.

“Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children,” Depp’s publicist Robin Baum said.

Depp and Paradis have been together since 1998, when he broke things off with British supermodel Kate Moss following a high-profile relationship. Depp has famously said that he enjoyed living in France with Paradis because the media was more respectful of their privacy than in the U.S. The couple also had a home in L.A., however, as well as one on a Caribbean island.

    I am a huge fan of Depp, there is no one like him anywhere. That said, I am disappointed in the way he treated Vanessa, the mother of his kids. Don’t have affairs without first letting go of the person you break up with. Protect their dignity. Don’t go fool around on the mother of your kids and let her be the fool in the news all over the world. OK ? That was disgusting. She got a lot of embarrassing press, like “he was bored”. Really ? And he did not step up to combat those ugly stories. He humiliated her and left her in that storm.
