But PEOPLE Magazine said it was over!

And PEOPLE Magazine wouldn’t say it was over if it wasn’t over, right?

Vanessa Paradis appeared on a French talk show the other day and was asked about the reports that she and Johnny Depp are done. Her response:

“People say we are buying houses in the middle of nowhere, or that we have fifty two houses in France. And that is along with saying we split up every winter and get married every summer, and that I'm on my twelfth pregnancy. All that is not too serious, but this latest one is a rumour which could cause a lot of harm to my family and my children.”

She kinda went on for a bit from there...so then the presenter pressed her:

“Why don't you respond to the rumour and put an end to it? Is the rumour false?'

Vanessa finally answered, “Yes it's false - of course it's false.” (Source)

Is it?

Here’s what’s interesting to me about the entire situation, and PEOPLE’s bold declaration on the cover of last week’s issue...

Vanessa’s people, her friends, any “sources” tied to her, would never have talked to PEOPLE. Remember, she’s not the Hollywood player with the big Hollywood game. That’s his business. And that’s 100% his move. Or the move of a savvy publicist who is strategically putting pieces on the board so as to slowly, slowly, meticulously extricate her client out of what may become a tricky situation.



Is that who you are now?

Because if his people are the ones feeding MiniVan-friendly magazines exclusive tips about the split, and she’s publicly denying them, it sounds like there’s one person who wants to walk, and another who wants to save. And Johnny doesn’t seem like he’s interested in Saving...

Anything but Money.

Is this...about money???

When it comes to Johnny Depp, it’s more often about the money than not. Perhaps even more so these days than Brad Pitt and George Clooney. How did this happen?
