Celebrities—they're just like us. They, too, are known to seek solace in the bottom of a bottle during trying times. Even film star and pirate Johnny Depp is allegedly using booze to crush his feelings in the wake of his split from girlfriend of 14 years, actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, with whom he raised two kids. Many are saying that Paradis called it quits due to resentments over Depp’s success and busy schedule, and it has been rumored that the couple’s “blazing fights” caused the Pirates of the Caribbean star “to drink heavily” prior to the break-up. Sources close to the star insist that when the relationship started to crumble a year ago, Depp’s drinking became noticeably worse, and multiple reports surfaced that he'd been out “drinking, dancing with models are generally acting like a bachelor.” Vanity Fair even claimed that the actor was once found passed out in a hotel toilet. Since splitting from Paradis, Depp is said to be dating his The Rum Diary costar, Amber Heard, who is 23 years his junior
