Hollywood star Johnny Depp and his new girlfriend Amber Heard are supposedly engaged, claim several reports, citing various sources.
“The Rum Diary” actors caused such rumors earlier this week after “The Playboy Club” alum was photographed leaving Hollywood’s Ago restaurant attempting to conceal what looked like a sparkly engagement ring on her ring finger, E! Online reported.
Which is more, yesterday sources close to Depp and Heard confirmed the nuptial news to some tabloids. However, there is no official statement from the couple’s reps. They even declined to comment on the rumors.
Depp and his current girlfriend met each other back in 2011 on the set of “The Rum Diaries.” The star and the 27-year-old actress had been linked since the beginning of 2012, after Heard’s split from her ex-girlfriend Tasya van Ree, a famous photographer.
Since then, the pair has been spotted together all over the world. “The proposal happened a while ago,” a source told reporters. “She just didn’t wear the ring.”
There’re rumors suggesting that Depp proposed on Christmas Eve, but Heard didn’t say yes right away.
“Amber really took her time to make up her mind,” a source close to the family told tabloids. “She turned him down before, before she said yes. So she waited and was thinking about it for a long time.”
Back in 2012 the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor officially announced that he and his longtime love Vanessa Paradis decided to go separate ways. The couple lived together 14 years and have two children together: Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11.
“They bet that they could move to California and be on long stays on films for his career,” the source close to the pair said then.
“They bet that things could continue there as they had in the south of France … They lost that bet. Vanessa went seven years between albums and several years between film projects while he became Jack Sparrow.”
Earlier, there have been plenty of speculations that Depp and Paradis’s relationship is close to collapse. Two years ago Paradis had reportedly banned Depp from a love scene with Angelina Jolie, while filming ‘The Tourist‘.
Before his relationship with Miss Paradis, Depp dated Winona Ryder, Kate Moss and Sherilyn Flynn.
Johny Depp and with the French singer fell in love in 1998, while filming ‘the Ninth Gate‘, Depp had said: “She turned round and boom!: My life as a single man was done.”
Later he explained why he didn’t want to tie the knots with the mother of his children: “I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married… If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not… But the thing is, I’d be so scared of ruining her last name. She’s got such a good last name.”
When speaking about the reasons of the couple’s split, one source suggested that Depp’s huge success has caused some tension in the relationship.
“Vanessa went seven years between albums, and several years between film projects, while he became Captain Jack Sparrow (from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘),” said a source.
