Heard was reported to have joined Depp in Las Vegas earlier this year as he plugged his new film — and was pictured boarding his private jet. Sparks of passion are said to have flown between them when they filmed The Rum Diary in Puerto Rico in 2009.
She is said to have even danced for him seductively on the set of the movie, which is based on a Hunter S Thompson book. The 26-year-old is openly bisexual and had been in a relationship with Tasya van Ree until last year.
Depp, 49, and Paradis, 39, began dating in 1998. They have two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10. The French-born actress and the American star who never married, have not been seen at a public event together since 2010.
Paradis did not attend any of the promotional events for recent film Dark Shadows or The Rum Diary, in which he starred alongside blonde actress Amber. Depp and Paradis didn’t take their separation lightly, and apparently put in a valiant effort to save their 14-year relationship.
The Hollywood A-list couple announced on Tuesday that they have split “amicably”.
