Johnny Depp Denies Split with Vanessa Paradis

Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, in 2010
Four months after us reported that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis”s relationship was all but finished, Depp on Wednesday denied that he and his partner of 14 years had split.

“The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true,” the actor, 48, said on the red carpet for the London premiere of Dark Shadows, according to U.K.”s Sun.

Still, conspicuously absent from the premiere was Paradis, who has not been seen publicly with Depp since reports about trouble between them. She also has not shared a red carpet with him in at least a year and a half.

In January, Paradis was alone at the premiere of her own movie, Café de Flore. At the time, Paradis, 39 – a French singer, model and actress, and mother of two children with Depp – was evasive when asked about a split.

This is the first time Depp has publicly addressed the matter.

“No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite,” Depp said at Wednesday”s premiere. “I can”t say enough about it not being over.”

Also quoted by the Mirror, Depp reportedly said of the rumors, “There”s no truth anymore. It doesn”t matter what I say to you right now, it doesn”t make any difference.”
