Johnny Depp claimed his long-standing relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis had been on the rocks for a few years, but his partner cites another reason for their split–Amber Heard.

Paradis, 38, has reportedly called Heard a “man-stealing nobody” and blames the 26-year-old actress for driving a wedge between her and Depp, who at 49 is twice her age.

Heard, who has openly proclaimed her bi-sexuality and is dating photograper Tasya van Ree, starred with Depp on his 2011 flop “The Rum Diary.”

Vanessa is mad enough that she is determined to keep her two children with Depp, Lily-Rose and Jack, from forming a relationship with the actress, according to the UK’s Now magazine.

“Vanessa’s devastated that Johnny’s dumped her. She blames Amber and calls her a man-stealing, two-bit nobody and has vowed to not let her anywhere near their children,” the source claimed.

The pair are “100 percent dating,” a source told USWeekly. “He treats her really well.”

Paradis was reportedly insanely jealous of other women in Depp’s life. She was said to have demanded the removal of a heated love scene between Depp and Angelina Jolie in their movie “The Tourist.”

Paradis and Depp were partners for 14 years, although they never officially married. Depp reportedly paid her $150 million as a settlement, estimated to be roughly half his net worth.

Vanessa, who is one of France’s biggest stars, appeared on the red carpet Monday for the premiere of her film Je me “Suis Fait Tout Petit.”
