It was after months of speculation and numerous denials to the contrary, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis confirmed they were separating yesterday.
And it has now emerged the French singer was looking for new properties weeks before the official announcement was made.
Vanessa was spotted viewing houses in Beverly Hills and Malibu back in May, hinting she was preparing to move out of the home she shared with Johnny.
According to the Daily Mail , the star looked at several properties including an eight bedroom, $7,995,000 mansion complete with pool, spa, games room, as well as a six bedroom house on the market for $10,995,000, which has its own guest house.
The couple - who have been together for 14 years and have two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10 - released an official statement on the split yesterday on Entertainment Tonight.
"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children," it read.
Most recently, Johnny Depp denied the reports of trouble in their marriage at the UK premiere of Dark Shadows last month.
"No matter what I say about this, people believe the opposite... I can’t say enough about it not being over."
