Four months after PEOPLE reported that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis's relationship was all but finished, Depp on Wednesday denied that he and his partner of 14 years had split.

"The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true," the actor, 48, said on the red carpet for the London premiere of Dark Shadows, according to U.K.'s Sun.

Still, conspicuously absent from the premiere was Paradis, who has not been seen publicly with Depp since reports about trouble between them. She also has not shared a red carpet with him in at least a year and a half.

In January, Paradis was alone at the premiere of her own movie, Café de Flore. At the time, Paradis, 39 – a French singer, model and actress, and mother of two children with Depp – was evasive when asked about a split.

In an interview with Stylist magazine, excerpted in Thursday's Sydney Morning Herald, in Australia, Paradis says, "I believe in love, and I want to believe that it lasts forever. But I'm like everyone else, you have to take things a day at a time and you can never know what comes next. All you can do is hope and love and live."

Depp's comments at his movie premiere Monday mark the first time he has publicly addressed the issue.

"No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite," Depp said Wednesday. "I can't say enough about it not being over."

Also quoted by the Mirror, Depp reportedly said of the rumors, "There's no truth anymore. It doesn't matter what I say to you right now, it doesn't make any difference."
