After 14 years as a couple, raising their two children 12 year old Lily-Rose and 9 year old Jack, actor Johnny Depp and his french girlfriend Vanessa Paradis have decided to go their separate ways. I thought it was so romantic for him to buy a private island for them to share together. These things remind us that nothing lasts forever. Separation. Was it clash of ego? Was it addiction difficulties? Confusion of priorities? What a crying shame and such a common thing to happen, especially for celebrities.
