Ladies, Johnny Depp Is Now Single

Captain Jack Sparrow is sailing solo. Edward Scissorhands has cut the strings. Willy Wonka won't be making chocolate for his sweetheart. In other words: ladies, Johnny Depp is now single.

The multi-talented actor has split with his girlfriend of 14 years, French actress Vanessa Paradis. Depp has been married once before, however he and Paradis never officially tied the knot. The couple has a 13-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, and a 9-year-old son, Jack, together.

Depp's publicist released a statement saying that the two have "amicably separated," and asked for respect for the privacy of the couple and their children. While that's a regular request of celebrity couples ending their relationships, Depp is notoriously publicity-shy.

Depp most recently appeared in "Dark Shadows," the latest in a long string of movies that paired him with director Tim Burton. Depp is set to play Tonto in the upcoming "The Lone Ranger" movie with Armie Hammer, but budgetary problems have delayed the movie somewhat.

So, ladies, if you're looking for a mumbly new boyfriend who can perform with The Black Keys and has a penchant for fedoras and goatees, there's one on the market. Oh, and he's also tremendously rich and famous and handsome.
