If you’ve been anywhere near the Internet in the last six months, you’ve most likely heard the distinct whispers — or rather exclamations points– surrounding a Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis split. And although some long-standing couples in Hollywood seem to evade these rumors from time-to-time, an official announcement of the parents parting ways once again confirms that often times tabloids smell smoke where there is metaphoric fire.

Entertainment Tonight reports that the separation is completely amicable following 14 years together and two children, Lily-Rose, aged 13, and little Jack, aged nine. Although the pair never married, they raised their family in France before moving to Los Angeles. But according to People, the move to the states revealed that the two were “living separate lives,” not partnering up on the red carpet and doing the obligatory paparazzi song and dance for about a year.

In typical celebrity split fashion, the mother and father have asked that the press prioritize how the separation will affect their children. Depp’s publicist told Entertainment Tonight:

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

And for tips on how successfully pull off that endeavor, I would recommend the pair set up a lunch with Seal and Heidi Klum.
