When Johnny Depp first broke up with long-time girlfriend and mother of his children, Vanessa Paradis, rumors started abounding over why, when, how, and where. What we’ve been able to discern now is that the relationship had been unraveling for some time now, even though no one seems to know why exactly. A lot of people have attributed it to Depp’s ‘mid-life crisis’, although it’s not really clear whether he was even having one. Despite this, he’s been professionally solid, signing up for the next Pirates of the Caribbean and headlining Disney’s tentpole ‘The Lone Ranger’.
A few months ago, right around the time of Depp’s break-up, there were rumors that he was hooking up with his ‘Rum Diary’ co-star Amber Heard, although nothing was confirmed. Heard was also in a relationship during that time, and eventually, the rumors went away. However, now they are resurfacing through a report from the New York Post.
The report is saying that Heard and Depp were seen being close in the VIP section of LA’s AV nightclub. A source told the newspaper, “They looked very flirty and sat close, conversing the whole time." While the two were rumored to be having a fling this past summer after Depp broke it off with Paradis, this seems to be longer-lasting that just a ‘fling’.
