Long before the plane ride, gift horse, or their respective break-ups, actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were allegedly sleeping together during the ‘Rum Diaries’ press tour.
Perez Hilton reported that a close source claimed the ‘Rum Diaries’ co-stars were a romantic item long before the series of events that apparently ended Depp’s 14-year-relationship with Vanessa Paradis. Amber Heard had been seen boarding Depp’s private jet, and it was known that Johnny got Amber a horse as a gift after he heard that she liked horseback riding.
“He’s smitten by her,” the insider claimed. The source also alleged that “They started sleeping together during the press tour” of ‘Rum Diaries.’ Johnny Depp was still partnered with Paradis at the time, while the bisexual Amber Heard was still dating Tasya Van Ree.
Another Perez Hilton source claimed to have overheard Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis arguing over an unidentified woman. “If I see her,” the reportedly furious Paradis was alleged to have snarled, “I’ll drown her!”
The source wasn’t able to clarify if the woman that Vanessa Paradis was threatening to drown was ‘Rum Diaries’ star Amber Heard (who recently became single again,) a female extra from the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ set, or Depp’s publicist, all of whom had been linked to the 49-year-old actor.
Perez Hilton made sure to point out that the second source admitted that Johnny Depp and Paradis had technically broken up at that point already. The long-time couple supposedly had that argument before they revealed their break-up to the public.
Whoever he was linked to, Johnny Depp was still reportedly “mourning the collapse of his family.” Sources close to the father of two kids claimed that Depp’s split with Vanessa Paradis was ” heartbreaking for all of them.” According to these sources, “Their loved ones are just trying to be there for them at this horrible time.”

Soon after his separation with long-time partner Vanessa Paradis, the newly-single Johnny Depp was reportedly courting ‘Rum Diary’ co-star Amber Heard by buying her a horse.
Perez Hilton reported that the latest gesture between Depp and Heard involved Johnny -who was currently shooting the ‘Lone Ranger’ movie- getting a horse for his bi-sexual co-star. The webloid further brought up the fact that the ‘Rum Diary’ cast mates acted very affectionate with one another during the promotional tour for their movie.
According to Perez Hilton, Amber Heard declared that co-starring with Johnny Depp was the best experience of her life. In turn, Depp reportedly claimed that setting eyes on Heard was like setting eyes on a classic movie star.
In addition, Perez Hilton earlier came across photos of Amber boarding Depp’s private plane back in April. During that time, Depp denied that he and Vanessa Paradis were not splitting up.
As anyone who follows showbiz now knows, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis recently ended their 14-year-long relationship. Depp was reportedly giving Paradis half of his personal worth, of which estimates range from $25-35 million. Depp and Paradis had two children together, and they reportedly worked hard to save their relationship.

A publicist for Johnny Depp confirmed that the “Lone Ranger’ actor and his long-time partner Vanessa Paradis were “amicably” splitting up this Tuesday.
The publicist issued a statement to E! News that Depp, 49, and Paradis, 39, ”have amicably separated” after 14 years and two children together.
As early as January of this year, there had been rumors that the relationship between the two thespians was starting to crack because of their busy schedules. Both Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis were also noted to have gone alone during recent events like the premiere of Depp’s recent movie ‘Dark Shadows.’
At the time, Paradis dispelled the rumors of a possible break-up between her and Depp.
“Yes, it’s false!” Vanessa Paradis informed French TV program Grand Journal. “Of course it’s false,” she assured the paper. She then expressed her concerns with how the rumors “can truly harm my family,” and how herkids with Johnny Depp -11-year-old Lily and 9-year-old Jack- will be affected.
Now that they had indeed split, it was reportedly Depp and Paradis’ wish for everyone to “please respect their privacy and, more importantly,” emphasized the statement issued to E! News by Depp’s publicist, “The privacy of their children.”
Entertainment Tonight was the first to report the split between Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.

A source close to Johnny Depp claimed that the actor was “trying to work it out” with longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis.
According to E! News, the 44-year-old Depp has always been reticent when it comes to his personal life. He remained mum earlier this year despite the rampant rumors that he and Paradis had broken up after 14 years together.
Now, weeks after new rumors linked Johnny Depp to his ‘Rum Diary’ co-star Amber Heard, a well-placed source informed E! News that ‘The Lone Ranger’ star is truly “trying to work it out” with Vanessa Paradis.
“For the first time in a long time,” the source claimed, “He is talking about her,” and added that, “They both want to make it work.”
Johnny Depp is currently shooting ‘The Lone Ranger’ in New Mexico. He returns to L.A. on most weekends to visit Paradis and their two children: Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 10.
A source on ‘The Lone Ranger’ informed E! News that Depp has been “very calm and focused” during shooting. The part-Cherokee actor has recently been adopted by the Comanche Nation for his depiction of the Ranger’s taciturn Comanche sidekick Tonto.
Neither Johnny Depp nor Vanessa Paradis discussed the status of their relationship.

Johnny Depp recently refuted rumors that he and longtime lover Vanessa Paradis are breaking up as “absolutely not true.” The Hollywood Gossip reported that the ‘Dark Shadows‘ star became upset when reporters at the UK premiere of his new film brought up their rumored break-up. “The rumors are not true,” Depp stated, “They are absolutely not true.”
This generation’s Barnabas Collins was chagrined to have his relationship with the 39-year-old Vanessa Paradis, Depp’s partner of 14 years, rumored to be on the rocks. But reporters couldn’t help but wonder. The Hollywood Gossip noted that Johnny Depp was alone on the red carpet of his new movie’s UK debut. Likewise, Paradis had been equally lonesome as she promoted her film, ‘Cafe de Flore,’ back in January.
The 48-year-old Johnny Depp is known to be notoriously private about his personal life. The ‘Dark Shadows’ lead expressed how pointless it was to address the rumors.
“No matter what I say about this,” Depp told The Sun, “People believe the opposite. I can’t say enough about it not being over,” stressed the star of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ mega franchise.
Vanessa Paradis remained ambiguous when asked about the state of her relationship with Johnny Depp. “I have a problem with the term ‘soul mates,’” the French actress recently told Stylist magazine in an interview. “It scares me a lot.”
According to Paradis, the term is “such a strong statement… ['Soul mates' is] like a marriage contract,” she observed. “I believe in love, and I really want to believe that it lasts forever.”
Citing practicality, Vanessa Paradis said that, “I have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next.” She believed that, “All you can do is hope, love and live.”
Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp have never married. The couple have two children.

“Finding Neverland” star Johnny Depp has been reportedly sued by a disabled woman at the Iggy Pop concert who claims she was roughed up and humiliated by the actor’s bodyguards.
According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the alleged victim, Robyn Ecker, claims she was trying to get to her seat in the V.I.P. area of an Iggy Pop concert when the security guards of Johnny Depp went berserk, tore her trousers off which exposed her buttocks to the other Hollywood Palladium Theater patrons, and bear-hugged her while restraining her wrists.
Robyn Ecker, a professor of medicine at UC Irvine also claims that the bodyguard of Johnny Depp ripped her cell phone out of her hand. The woman alleges she suffered bruising, possibly broken bones, and a dislocated elbow.
The alleged victim, who is suing 48-year-old Depp for an unspecified amount of damages, also claims the incident caused more damage to her pre-existing spondyloarthritis and fibromyalgia.
TMZ reports that Robyn Ecker had cashed out for the expensive tickets for her husband’s birthday, and had been seated next to the “Edward Scissorhands” actor. Ecker added that she was having a great time at the concert, and had been dancing when she “accidentally” got too close to the table of Johnny Depp, after which she claims she was tackled by the actor’s bodyguards and grappled to the floor. Following her ordeal, Robyn Ecker said she left and went for a hospital examination to make sure she had not suffered any injuries.
Robyn’s assistant confirmed she and her party had been drinking during that evening. A law enforcement source also claims that Robyn Ecker appeared extremely intoxicated when she filed her report.
If charges are eventually made, it would not be the first time Johnny Depp would be involved in a legal woe. Back in 1994, the actor was charged with destroying a hotel room in New York. Additionally, Depp was arrested after a ruckus with a group of photographers outside a restaurant in London.
The said melee occurred when photographers tried to take his picture, and Johnny Depp allegedly threatened them with a wooden board when they approached him outside Mirabelle restaurant in central London.
