Johnny Depp’s Newly Single Life

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(NEW YORK) -- Just days after Johnny Depp announced his split from longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, reports are swirling about the actor's newly single life.

Depp has already been linked to a handful of women, including his Dark Shadows co-star Eva Green and The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, according to People magazine. Reports linked the co-stars earlier this year after Heard was spotted boarding a private plane with the actor headed for Las Vegas. But the openly bisexual actress also brought along her girlfriend, artist Tasya van Ree.

Depp has also been seen regularly hanging around Hollywood bad boy Marilyn Manson, including spending late nights at the rocker's home and jamming on guitar at a Manson concert in April.

The actor is currently busy working on Disney's The Lone Ranger in Albuquerque, N.M., and Creede, Colo., but has been frequently hopping on a private plane back to Los Angeles, sometimes several times a week, according to People.

As for Paradis, she was seen returning to her native Paris June 14 after promoting her film, Je Me Suis Fait Tout Petit, at the Cabourg Festival of Romantic Cinema.

"She looked tired," an observer told People. "She just didn't look well or happy."

Depp's spokeswoman confirmed the Pirates of the Caribbean star's split this week, after months of speculation.

"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated.  Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children," said his publicist in a statement to ABC News. The couple, never married, was together for 14 years.

Paradis, 39, and Depp, 48, once lived a very private life together in the romantic hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour, France.  But over the last few years they often lived in different homes -  Depp in Hollywood, Paradis often in France.  The couple has two children together.

In January of this year while promoting her film Café De Flore, Paradis said she didn't buy the idea of marriage or soul mates because "if you lose your soul mate everything is done for."

"'The idea of a soul mate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about in a movie or a song," she said, "but in reality, I find it scary."

While she was talking about the movie, Depp and Paradis have been outspoken about not needing a piece of paper to be a fully committed couple. They first got together in June 1998.  According to People, Depp spotted Paradis sitting at a bar in Paris.  He was so taken with her that he sent a friend over to invite her to his table where they talked for two hours.

Heidi Klum and Seal Confirm Split

John Shearer/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- After reports surfaced over the weekend that Heidi Klum and pop star Seal were calling it quits, the couple has come out to officially confirm they are ending their seven-year marriage.

In a statement first released to People magazine, the couple said, “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.”

The celebrity couple became engaged in 2004 during a vacation in the Canadian Rockies.  The model and singer were known to renew their vows in lavish ceremonies each year.  Together, they have two sons, Henry, 6, and Johan, 5, and one daughter, Lou, 2.

The two met in 2004 while Klum was pregnant with her first child, Helene -- nicknamed Leni; in 2009, Seal officially adopted Helene.  

Eyebrows were raised last week when the supermodel hit the red carpet solo at the Golden Globes ceremony, while Seal was in the U.K. promoting his new album, Soul 2.

Soon, celebrity blogs were on red alert after the “Kiss From a Rose” singer took to Twitter on Friday, posting a cryptic message simply saying “the end,” along with a photo of his tattoo with wings.  Many wondered if the image was a reference to Klum’s days as a Victoria’s Secret “angel.”

The couple has so far released only a few details on their split, merely stating, “We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart.”

Did Demi Moore Drive Ashton Kutcher Crazy with Her 'Doubts'?

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- It was more than just the rumors of infidelity that led Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore to break up, according to this week's issue of People magazine.

Aside from the reports that he cheated on her, Moore reportedly was also bothered by their well-publicized age gap -- she's 49, he's 33.  A source connected to Kutcher claims, "She drove him crazy after a while with questions and doubts."

However, an insider says, Moore "really wanted to save the marriage but couldn't deal with the pain of his cheating."

Kutcher was allegedly ready to bail on the marriage.  A source says, "Ashton was ready to end it, [but] he wanted to wait for Demi to actually do it.  He loved her but couldn't live with her."

Moore announced last week that she was ending their six-year marriage.
