Johnny Depp’s breakup with his long term partner Vanessa Paradis was brewing for a long time, and has exclusive details about the real reason why they split.

“Johnny didn’t want to be with Vanessa anymore. They had grown so far apart, and he wanted to be free and try new things," a source close to the former couple tells "He was bored senseless with her, being with Vanessa was making him miserable.

"The spark had gone, and there was nothing left. Johnny just wants more from life and believes Vanessa deserves to be happier too. He's not embroiled in some hot and heavy new romance and he has no plans to jump straight into something straight away, but he is keen to have some fun again.

"Johnny was not handling keeping their split secret too well, it was difficult for him to carry on a farce, so now that it is out in the public he is feeling a lot happier about the situation.”

As previously reported,  has been planning the split for a while.

“Johnny has wanted this relationship to end since last year,” the source says. “He has tried to get out of this for a long time.”

However, one thing is for sure -- even though Johnny no longer wants to be romantically involved with Vanessa, he is determined to continue to be a hands-on dad when it comes to their two children, Lilly Rose and Jack.
