'Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship,' a source said.
Johnny Depp and longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis are hit with split rumor. The couple, according to Radar Online, has been arguing constantly and they have considered ending the relationship.
"Johnny isn't handling anything well right now," a source close to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star told Radar. "People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end."
Depp reportedly has even consulted lawyers on how to get out of the union although they are not married. He also tried to be strong in front of their children, Lily-Rose and Jack, but he can't hide it. "Johhny is so talented at acting, but he doesn't seem able to hide how badly things are going right now," the source added.
The news of separation contradicts the fact that the whole family went out together recently in Los Angeles. They rang in the New Year as a family although Depp did not join Paradis and the kids when they went to LA Guitar Center a couple of days later.
