What’s going on with Johnny Depp? Midlife crisis, anyone?

First, Johnny, 50, splits up with his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis, mother of his two children.

Then he hooks up with young starlet Amber Heard, who at the age of 27 is 23 years Johnny‘s junior.

Then, just over a year later, Johnny‘s apparently putting an engagement ring on Amber‘s finger and is preparing to tie the knot! Which he didn’t do for the entire 14 years he was with Vanessa, 41!

All a bit sudden, isn’t it?

There was a time when Johnny‘s relationship with French actress Vanessa was heralded as one of the soundest and longest-lasting in Hollywood.

No, scrap that – coz they didn’t live in Tinseltown, did they. Johnny and Vanessa shunned the sparkly places for a private family retreat in rural France – and we loved them for it. How unspoilt! How real! How normal! Gawd bless ’em, one and all.

But as soon as things turned topsy with Vanessa, seems like Johnny‘s been drawn to the sparklies like a moth to a flame.

And here he is, hobnobbing with girlies half his age and chucking diamond rings at them like there’s no tomorrow.

And, well, maybe that’s the thing – seeing as Johnny‘s the wrong side of 50 now, maybe he feels there’s not so many tomorrows left so he’s got to grab it while he can…
