Like Sweeney Todd after a clean kill, being free of his relationship with Vanessa Paradis has put a smile on Johnny Depp's face and a song in his heart!
A close friend of Mr. Deep has reveals that:
“Johnny has been saying that he is immensely relieved to finally be out of the relationship with Vanessa, he feels like the weight of the world is off his shoulders."
This new carefree Depp is a complete 180 from pre-split Depp.
Before the break up was announced, the actor struggled to conceal his broken relationship from everyone, and it was taking a toll. Johnny's pal says:
“Those close to them knew about it Johnny was struggling with keeping his life hidden. He was out partying too much, friends were worried about his drinking and he was starting to get out of control."
But that's all in the past. Now that his relationship with his baby momma is officially kaput, Johnny is whole new man:
"Once he and Vanessa admitted that their relationship was over he was able to loosen up and not wallow in misery. His relationship with Vanessa was so bad at the end and now he’s happy again. He’s relieved that it is over and he can move on.”
And move on he has!
This explains why news he was dating Amber Heard broke almost immediately after the break up.
We're just glad Depp is happy now! He deserves it!
