JOHNNY Depp has been telling pals he has a new lease on life following his split from Vanessa Paradis.
Sources say the actor is relieved to be out of his relationship with the French actress, with whom he raises two children.
“Johnny has been saying that he is immensely relieved to finally be out of the relationship with Vanessa, he feels like the weight of the world is off his shoulders,” a source told RadarOnline.
“As they were splitting up and only those close to them knew about it Johnny was struggling with keeping his life hidden. He was out partying too much, friends were worried about his drinking and he was starting to get out of control. Once he and Vanessa admitted that their relationship was over he was able to loosen up and not wallow in misery.
“Johnny wants to move on with his life, he’s happy dating other women and he’s able to do so freely now. His relationship with Vanessa was so bad at the end and now he’s happy again. He’s relieved that it is over and he can move on.”
Vanessa, 39, was devastated by news of her longtime love’s relationship with the bisexual beauty — and is now preparing to wage a full-scale palimony battle for her share of his $350 million fortune.
“Vanessa might be putting on a brave face in public, but she’s absolutely distraught,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“There’s no amount of money that can take away her agony as the full picture of what actually went down with Amber slowly emerges.
“Right now, she’s angry and humiliated and not seeing things straight, but everyone believes her when she says she’ll never forgive Johnny for walking out on his family.
“Vanessa doesn’t want Amber anywhere near the kids. Obviously, she’s told Johnny her wishes, but rumors are flying that Johnny’s so obsessed with Amber that she gets away with murder. He’s even fired two of his assistants in the past four months for not keeping up with her demands.
“When it comes to his relationship with Amber, Johnny doesn’t care who he hurts – least of all Vanessa.”[imagebrowser id=1072]
