While rumours are circling that Johnny Depp's relationship with co-star, Amber Heard, 26, is heating up. There's still the question of the split split with Vanessa Paradis and what she can expect from his earnings.
An insider revealed, he has harbours no hard feelings towards Paradis and "he will make a generous lump sum payment as a settlement."
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor earned a reported £50 million last year alone and has an extensive property portfolio. The French singer is also expected to retain ownership of a house in Plan-de-la-Tour in southern France, leaving Depp with his Hollywood Hills home.
Despite the large check that he will be signing, photos have emerged of Depp boarding his private plane with Amber Heard. The Rum Diary co-stars are said to be so close that bisexual actress Heard, has been a 'regular visitor' to the New Mexico set of The Lone Ranger where 49-year-old Depp is currently filming.
They flew to Vegas together, with reports that he had bought the actress a horse, so the pair can go riding together, according to Globe magazine.
A source claims Depp is smitten by the Hitchcock blonde, and reportedly said: "When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star like Lauren Bacall."Heard has described her role as Johnny Depp's love interest in the film, The Rum Diary, as "the best experience of my life."
Depp and Paradis announced their split officially early in the week, after the couple hadn't been seen together for months. Johnny and Vanessa have declined to appear at their respective premieres and public events together recently, with the French actress attending her premiere, of Café de Flore in Paris alone, and not accompanying the actor on promotional duties for Dark Shadows.
