Just days after Johnny Depp announced his split from longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, reports are swirling about the actor’s newly single life.
Depp has already been linked to a handful of women, including his “Dark Shadows” co-star Eva Green and “The Rum Diary” co-star Amber Heard, according to People magazine. Reports linked the co-stars earlier this year after Heard was spotted boarding a private plane with the actor headed for Las Vegas. But the openly bisexual actress also brought along girlfriend, artist Tasya van Ree.
Depp has also been seen regularly hanging around Hollywood bad boy Marilyn Manson, including spending late nights at the rocker’s home and jamming on guitar at a Manson concert in April.
The actor is currently busy working on Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” in Albuquerque, N.M., and Creede, Colo., but has been frequently hopping on a private plane back to Los Angeles, sometimes several times a week, according to People.
As for Paradis, she was seen returning to her native Paris June 14 after promoting her film, “Je Me Suis Fait Tout Petit,” at the Cabourg Festival of Romantic Cinema.
“She looked tired,” an observer told People. “She just didn’t look well or happy.”
Depp’s spokeswoman confirmed the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star’s split on June 20, 2012, after months of speculation.
“Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children,” said his publicist in a statement to ABC News. The couple, never married, was together for 14 years.
Paradis, 39, and Depp, 48, once lived a very private life together in the romantic hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour, France. But over the last few years they often lived in different homes - Depp in Hollywood, Paradis often in France. The couple have two children together.
In January of this year while promoting her film “Café De Flore,” Paradis said she didn’t buy the idea of marriage or soul mates because “if you lose your soul mate everything is done for.”
“‘The idea of a soul mate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about in a movie or a song,” she said, “but in reality, I find it scary.”
While she was talking about the movie, Depp and Paradis have been outspoken about not needing a piece of paper to be a fully committed couple. They first got together in June 1998. According to People.com, Depp spotted Paradis sitting at a bar in Paris. He was so taken with her that he sent a friend over to invite her to his table where they talked for two hours.
