After 14 years together and two children, Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp went their separate ways.

In 2021, in a witness statement relating to the court battle between Depp and Amber Heard, Vanessa said: "I can say he was never violent or abusive to me.

"I have seen that these outrageous statements have been really distressing, and also caused damage to his career because unfortunately, people have gone on believing these false facts.

At the time of their split, they asked for privacy for themselves and "more importantly, the privacy of their children".
