Vanessa Paradis’s “No Drama” Reaction to Ex Johnny Depp’s Engagement
If you were expecting Vanessa Paradis to cause a stir after she learned that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard had gotten engaged, think again. Vanessa, the mother of Johnny’s two children, has kept quiet throughout her ex and Amber’s tumultuous relationship, and that hasn’t changed now that he went and put a ring on it.
The biggest move Vanessa made was chopping off her hair right around the time Johnny and Amber’s engagement news broke. That, of course, may just have been pure coincidence and not the “I’ll show you how hot I am” move we would have made in similar circumstances.
Now, however, Vanessa’s spoken out about her former partner and his new relationship status. A source exclusively tells Us Weekly that the 41-year-old French entertainer isn’t upset one bit. In fact, when Depp called to tell her the news there was “no drama” and Vanessa “wished him happiness,” a friend of Vanessa’s tells Us.
Vanessa and Johnny were together from 1998 to 2012 and never married. Their daughter, Lily-Rose, was born in 1999 followed by son Jack in 2002. Fifty-year-old Johnny met his 27-year-old wife-to-be Amber while filming The Rum Diary; the two began dating in June 2012, just after he and Vanessa parted ways after 14 years together.
Vanessa’s similarly moved on in the romance department. Rather than stewing over relationships past, Vanessa is “happy” and “not bitter,” her friend tells Us. It probably helps she has a new companion of her own: smoking hot French musician Benjamin Biolay.
