It's official: Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have split after 14 years together.
The couple "have amicably separated," Depp's publicist said in a statement released to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday. "Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."
As PEOPLE has reported, the two drifted into living separate lives after moving to Los Angeles from France. They haven't appeared together on a red carpet in a year and, an insider told PEOPLE about their crumbling relationship, "It's so sad."
The couple have two children together: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9.

In the days since PEOPLE reported that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis's 14-year relationship is all but finished, the actress has been spotted solo, even hitting the red carpet alone at the premiere of her new film Café de Flore.
She kept mum at her movie premiere, but on Tuesday, French TV panelist Arianne Massenet asked Paradis, 39, the million-dollar question on Le Grand Journal.
"The press is going on about this separation with Johnny Depp ... How do you handle these rumors?" asked Massenet [PEOPLE's French correspondent translated the interview].

Vanessa Paradis attended the Paris premiere of her new film, Café de Flore, on Monday, marking her first official public appearance since PEOPLE's report that she and longtime partner Johnny Depp are living separate lives.
The actress, 39, breezed past photographers on the red carpet, pausing only once to pose with Marin Gerrier – the young actor who plays her son in the movie – and the film's director, Jean-Marc Vallée.
"She had the air she always does – polite, smiling saying hello to everyone inside," says French TV reporter Christophe Beaugrand. But reporters were explicitly told that no personal questions were allowed.

With their nearly 14-year relationship at a breaking point, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have been 5,000 miles apart this week.
French actress-singer Paradis, 39, has spent the last few days in Paris, where on Friday she shopped in the Marais district and went for a fitting at Chanel's headquarters on Rue Cambon.
While Paradis is expected at Monday's Paris premiere of her film Café de Flore, Depp, 48, has been keeping a low profile in Los Angeles. He was spotted sporting a fedora and driving a luxury sports car Thursday, and he showed up later that night at the Hollywood Museum, according to sources.

These days, they may be living separate lives in Los Angeles. But there was a time – not too long ago – when Johnny Depp and girlfriend Vanessa Paradis lit up red carpets and glamorous Hollywood events together.
In fact, in June 2009 at his Public Enemies premiere in London, Depp recalls fondly when he first laid eyes on the French actress, answering an interviewer's question about whether or not he believes in love at first sight.
"Yeah," Depp said at the time. "We've been together for about 11 years and we have two children. [At the time], I saw her back about 30 yards away. I saw her back and her neck. [She] turned around suddenly and looked at me – and I was stupefied."

Once upon a time, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis lived a quiet family life far from the spotlight in the sleepy French hamlet of Plan-de-la-Tour.
But that time is no more, and now the couple largely reside in L.A. – when they are in the same city at all.
Depp, 48, and Paradis, 39, who are parents to Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, have not appeared side-by-side on a red carpet for more than a year. Multiple sources tell PEOPLE in this week's cover story that the relationship is all but officially finished.

At Vanessa Paradis's concert Wednesday night in New York City, the audience was filled with fans from France, couples extending their Valentine's Day love and ... Paradis's own love, Johnny Depp.
Depp, 47, who has two children with Paradis, 38, sat in the front row of the balcony, his eyes fixated on her throughout the two-hour show. She sang mostly in French, dedicating one song to "love and fire," and producing a beautiful, feminine rendition of Jeff Buckley’s "Hallelujah."

It looks like we're not the only ones who can go on and on about all the many reasons Johnny Depp is the perfect man.
"I could make an endless list of all the things I admire about him," PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive's longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, in a rare interview, gushes in the August U.K. edition of Marie Claire. "But above all, I admire his immense loyalty … I admire him as an actor, as a father and as the man he is for me. But more than anything, I admire him as a person."
And just how does one snag – and keep – a Hollywood heartthrob like Depp for 12 years?
