Sources say Depp might be seeking solace in the arms of someone very, very familiar: his ex, Vanessa Paradis.
OK! magazine reports that Depp and Paradis were seen together having a dinner at a romantic restaurant in Los Angeles.
“They were flirting with each other in a quiet corner at the end of the bar and didn’t seem to care who was looking,” an onlooker told the magazine. The source continued, saying that Depp “didn’t want to leave her side” — apparently so much that he even followed her into the bathroom. We’ll give you three guesses what we think they were doing in there.
Depp and Paradis already have a long history. They were together for 14 years — from 1998 until 2012 — and they have two kids together, Lily-Rose Melody Depp and John Christopher Depp III.
Their split was reportedly very amicable, so it would make sense if they were just having a friendly catch-up sesh or if Paradis was hanging with Depp to support him after his messy divorce. But from the sound of what other people in the restaurant saw, it’s always possible that there could be more.
Depp and Heard just settled their divorce after a long and contentious battle filled with domestic abuse allegations and restraining orders. They eventually agreed to a quiet, out-of-court settlement, and Heard donated all $9 million of her settlement money to domestic violence charities.
“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity,” they wrote in a joint statement released after their divorce was finalized.
