As gossip flies around cyberspace about the alleged break-up of Depp and French-born Paradis, a source has told told the The Enquirer: “It’s no coincidence that things began to unravel for Johnny and Vanessa when he started working with Angelina.

Vanessa was absolutely convinced that Johnny slept with Angelina, and her jealousy and suspicions ended up destroying them.”

Apparently the two had ‘obvious’ off-screen chemistry and were constantly hanging out and giggling together like teenagers.

It had been alleged that Vanessa and Depp, who have two children together, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, nine, have been ‘living separate lives’ for some time.

But, recently, on a French chat show, after Paradis’s rambled response to questions about the split, a presenter asked her, “Why don’t you respond to the rumour and put an end to it? Is the rumour false?”

Paradis replied: “Yes it’s false – of course it’s false.”
