Happy together? After 14 years together, Johnny Depp and partner Vanessa Paradis are said to be living separate lives

Johnny Depp and his partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, are living 'separate lives', it has been claimed.

The French actress was nowhere to be seen as the Pirates of the Carribean star mingled with his A-list friends at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

And now some insiders are saying that the long-term couple have already split up.

According to a new report by the highly respected publication People magazine, their relationship has been rocky for quite some time.

It follows several tabloid reports that the pair's relationship is on the rocks.

Although they show displays of unity at family functions for children Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, they are infrequently spotted together.

While both Johnny, 48, and Vanessa, 39, were in Paris last November, she opted out of attending the French premiere of his film, The Rum Diary.

Instead, People reports, she went to a concert, which one source notes was 'weird and pretty clear: You're in town and you don't go to the premiere of your husband's film? One which he starred in, produced?

She was also noticeably absent at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film in May.

Though they have both been staying in LA, it is believed they are living at different locations.

An insider tells the magazine that the two, who never married, may have been broken up for years.

'My sense is that this is a couple which hasn't existed for two years,' says the source.

Vanessa has remained at home in Los Angeles with their kids, who attend private school there, while Johnny gallivants around the world shooting movies.

While he was filming Pirates in Hawaii in 2010, he was often spotted drinking wine at local bars in and around Honolulu.

'He would chat with girls and was very friendly and flirty,' a source tells the magazine.

Now Depp is flying off to shoot The Lone Ranger in Mexico while, once again, Vanessa remains at home in LA with the children.

The stony-faced French singer was spotted walking through the city's outdoor shopping mall, The Grove, on Friday - which meant she could have easily attended the Golden Globes as his date.

Though friends hope they can reconcile, it isn't looking likely for the once-wonderful couple.

Though he told the Daily Mail last October that when he first saw Paradis 'my life as a single man was over', their pals say their relationship is damaged beyond repair.

'They are both very attached to their children and things could work out,' a source tells the magazine, 'but they have both changed - a lot.'
