Johnny Depp's relationship with Vanessa Paradis reportedly crumbled because she grew to resent the success that she inspired the actor to achieve.
The couple – who never married - are said to have called it quits in 2010, after Vanessa decided that she could not go on, but decided not to announce it.
According to a source, the former model and singer, 39, urged the actor to take mainstream roles, such as 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.
Until then, despite being a huge name, Johnny had been inclined to take on more obscure roles. But his step into the world of blockbusters paid off handsomely. The film hauled in more than $300 million and turned Johnny into one of the world's most profitable leading men.
However, Vanessa soon grew unhappy, despite the fact she was reaping the rewards of his $20 million a film career. It didn't help that Vanessa, who had a huge hit in Europe with Joe Le Taxi, was now watching her singing career lie dormant.
A source said: 'Nothing Johnny did was ever good enough for Vanessa. When he was working, she wasn't happy. And when he wasn't working, he was called a slob for not doing enough for the kids and her family.'
The former couple are parents to two children; Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10.
Johnny, 49, is now rumoured to have found love again with his Rum Diary co-star, bisexual Amber Heard, 26. 'They are 100 percent dating,' a source revealed. 'He treats her really well.'
