â— Winona Ryder, 1989-1993
Ryder and Depp met at a movie premiere and quickly became an item. They co-starred in Tim Burton’s film “Edward Scissorhands.” After their split, Depp changed the tattoo on his right biceps from “Winona Forever” to “Wino Forever.”

â— Kate Moss, 1994-1998
Hollywood insiders say Depp’s relationship with model Kate Moss is best described as tumultuous. The couple was often seen in public either making out or yelling at each other. Their romance yielded Depp’s fourth broken engagement.
â— Vanessa Paradis, June 1998-June 2012 The French model met Depp while he was filming “The Ninth Gate.” Several months later, the couple moved into a $2 million villa in France. With the success of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise, Depp and Paradis purchased a 156′ charter yacht and named her VaJoLiRoJa. The boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack.
