After fending off rumors of a break-up for months, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have confirmed that they are indeed entering splitsville, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The couple, who have been together for fourteen years, have "amicably separated," said Depp's publicist in a statement to the news site. He went on to ask the world to "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."

Depp and Paradis have two kids, 13-year-old Lily-Rose, and 9-year-old Jack.
