Vanessa Paradis’ Dramatic Reaction to Her Ex, Johnny Depp, Proposing to Amber Heard

Vanessa Par­adis was report­edly furi­ous when she first found out that her ex-boyfriend and father of her two kids, Johnny Depp, was dat­ing actress Amber Heard, who’s almost half his age. Par­adis was sup­pos­edly under the impres­sion that their May-December rela­tion­ship was just a fling and that Heard was “try­ing to get her hooks into Johnny and his money by get­ting him to propose.”

Although Depp and Heard were far from mar­riage at the time, the celebrity cou­ple is now said to be engaged. So, what did Par­adis have to say now about her ex mar­ry­ing his much younger sugar baby? Not much, appar­ently. “Vanessa wished him hap­pi­ness,” a friend told Us Weekly, adding that Par­adis isn’t bit­ter at all after hear­ing the news that the celebrity cou­ple was plan­ning to take their May-December rela­tion­ship to the next level. “She’s happy,” said the insider.

Par­adis’ reac­tion is def­i­nitely sur­pris­ing, con­sid­er­ing how much she was rumored to despise her ex’s May-December rela­tion­ship. But her new easy­go­ing atti­tude about Depp mov­ing on with Heard might have to do with the fact that she’s moved on, too; Par­adis is now dat­ing French singer Ben­jamin Bio­lay. On the other hand, we have yet to hear from Par­adis directly, so there’s a chance that the drama is only just beginning.

What do you think: Would you invite your ex to your wed­ding? Or if you were the one on the invite list, would you go?
