Johnny Depp promises things are going well after his relationship with Vanessa Paradis has ended and they raise their "kiddies."
Johnny Depp has finally decided to talk to Rolling Stone about the breakup that was all the rage last year. At first, the split was merely a rumor, but soon everyone figured out that it was real. At anytime Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis were cornered or asked about the breakup rumors, they kept mum about their love life. Once Johnny Depp began to be seen with Amanda Heard, the media exploded with hearsay and somewhat of confirmation that he and Vanessa must have ended it all. Surprisingly at this juncture, Johnny Depp has much to say about the breakup, life after loving Vanessa and how the children are taking the separation:
"The last couple years have been a bit bumpy. At times, certainly unpleasant, but that's the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there are kiddies involved. They've been incredibly understanding. Incredibly strong throughout the whole ordeal. And it's hard on every side. You know, Vanessa's side, certainly not easy. My side, not easy. The kids are the most complicated. Relationships are very difficult, especially in the racket that I'm in because you're constantly away or they're away and so it's hard. It wasn't easy on her. It wasn't easy on me. It wasn't easy on the kids."
According to him, after the relationship had prevailed up to a certain point, it plateaued then began to fall way off course:
"The trajectory of that relationship ? you play it out until it goes, one thing leads to another. So for whatever reason that ceases, it doesn't stop the fact that you care for that person, and they're the mother of your kids, and you'll always know each other, and you're always gonna be in each other's lives because of those kids of it."
Even in the bad times and throughout, Johnny has done well in relying on his strength, staying away from substances to cope and just carrying on with life as usual:
"In terms of the breakup, I definitely wasn't going to rely on the drink to ease things or cushion the blow or cushion the situation.
Cause that could have been fatal. I felt it was my duty to be real clear throughout that. I had something pretty serious to focus on, really, which was making sure that my kids were gonna be cool."
