Should we believe the reports?  If so, there’s trouble in Paradis for Captain Jack Sparrow.     



People Magazine reports Hollywood A-lister Johnny Depp is in hot water. He and his love of 14 years, singer Vanessa Paradis, are calling it quits.  According to People, Depp, 48, and the Chanel model, 39, have not been in public together for more than a year.



To the movie-going public, Depp is a star.  He is best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The pirate is the central protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise.  In the yachting industry, the actor is more familiar.  For instance, he is the celebrity owner of a charteryacht often cruising the Bahamas.

This week’s office water-cooler question: will the split lead Depp to rename his Bahama yacht charters motor yacht, VaJoLiRoJa?

They are casually dressed. He is wearing green shorts, a light blue sleeveless t-shirt that shows his arm tattoo, and a bandana on his head. She is wearing a pink long-sleeved shirt, and her hair is pulled back in a ponytail. The yacht is white with brown shiny wood interior.

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. 



If Johnny drops Vanessa, can we assume the multi-syllabic boat name will shed its current first syllable – leaving us with JoLiRoJa?  We kind of like that – if you say it fast enough it sounds like, “Jolly Roger”  — a perfect name for this 156 foot yacht of distinctive character.



But wait, what if it’s Vanessa forcing Johnny to, “Walk the plank?”  If she keeps custody of the yacht, the new name could be VaJoLiRoJa.   Has a nice sound to it – kinda rolls off the tongue…



Perhaps the best name for the yacht is RANSOM, as in Depp’s reported $300 gross profit sharing booty from Disney’s Pirates movie franchise.

Johnny Depp


Our intrepid reporters sensed trouble in paradise for actor Johnny Depp, the owner of the Mediterranean yacht charter vessel, VaJoLiRoJa and his companion of 14 years, singer Vanessa Paradis, in January.


Now that the actor has confirmed the breakup, review Depp’s relationships below. In addition to beautiful women, they come from all walks of Hollywood life.
First, Lori Allison, 1983-1985
Depp married makeup artist Lori Allison when he moved to Los Angeles.  Allison introduced Depp to her friend, Nicolas Cage.  Cage then introduced Depp to the agent who landed Depp his breakthrough role in “Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Second, Sherilyn Fenn, 1986-1988
Fenn and Depp met on the set of a student film. The couple announced their engagement.  Fenn appeared in one episode of Depp’s hit TV series, “21 Jump Street.”  They broke up.  Fenn then starred in the TV series “Twin Peaks.”
Third, Jennifer Grey, 1989
The “Dirty Dancing” star engaged Depp in 1989. Not much else is known about their relationship. Their engagement seems to have fizzled when Depp met Wynona Ryder the same year.


Fourth, Winona Ryder, 1989-1993
Ryder and Depp met at a movie premiere. They quickly became an item. They co-starred in Tim Burton’s film “Edward Scissorhands.”  They split, and Depp changed the tattoo on his right bicep from “Winona Forever” to “Wino Forever.”
Fifth, Ellen Barkin, 1993-1994
Depp briefly dated Barkin.  She is nine years older than Depp.
Sixth, Kate Moss, 1994-1998
Hollywood insiders describe Depp’s relationship with model Kate Moss as tumultuous. The couple was often seen in public. They constantly either make out or yell at each other. In the same way as others, the romance equalled a fourth broken engagement.
Seventh, Vanessa Paradis, June 1998-June 2012
The French model met Depp while he was filming “The Ninth Gate.”  Months later, the couple moved into a $2 million villa in France.  Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise succeeded.  Depp and Paradis purchased a 156′  charter yacht. They named her VaJoLiRoJa.   The name is a result of combining the first few letters of each family member’s name. For instance, partner VAnessa Paradis, JOhnny, and their kids, LIly-ROse and JAck.  In conclusion, concentrate now.
