The spokesperson told US magazine last night: "Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated.

"Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."

It's such sad news as they were one of the most beautiful and stylish showbiz pairings and even more so that they have two children, Lily Rose, 13, and Jack, 10.

The actor and French singer have been living apart for some time and failed to travel together as they promoted their work projects individually.

In recent times they'd rarely been photographed together, in fact the last time they posed as a pair was in 2010.

Despite this, the couple insisted they had not broken up until yesterday.

The pair had been plagued by rumours that Johnny was seeing his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard.

It's believed the actress accompanied the 49-year-old as he promoted his latest film, Dark Shadows in Las Vegas.

She was also photographed getting in the actor's private jet while in California and it's believed she danced seductively on set when they worked together.

Vanessa and Johnny's split is reported to be amicable and we hope things continue in this nature as the couple, who famously never married, divide up their assets which are thought to be worth in excess of £190 million.

Perhaps tellingly, Vanessa told Stylist magazine earlier this year: "I believe in love and I want to believe that it lasts forever.

"But I'm like everyone else, you have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope and love and live."

Aww, we are well and truly gutted for them.
