The pair, who never married, have two children together: 12-year-old Lily-Rose and nine-year-old Jack. For years the family hunkered down in the anonymity of the quiet French countryside village of Plan-de-la-Tour. Now, thanks to Depp’s busy work life, the family spends most of its time in Los Angeles — but not together.
According to People, Depp, 48, and Paradis, 39, stayed in separate hotels during a November visit to Paris and has spent a lot of time in bars with pals.
“They bet that they could move to California and be on long stays on film locations for his career. They bet that things would continue there as they had in the south of France,” a source tells People. “The lost that bet. Vanessa went seven years between albums and several years between film projects while he became Captain Jack Sparrow.”
