Johnny Depp is unlikely to attend this year's Academy Awards because of the recent rumours surrounding his relationship with Vanessa Paradis.
The 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star was expected to present an award at the ceremony in February, but now he might turn down the opportunity so he avoids creating more drama around their relationship.
Showbiz Spy reports a close friend of Depp saying: "Johnny feels he can't win. "If he turns up with Vanessa it just looks like they are trying to make a point of being seen together while if Johnny goes on his own it furthers the rumours."
The insider also added: “Johnny is now unlikely to go to the Oscars at all.”
Earlier this month, rumours suggested that the couple of 14 years were on the verge of a split after their constant arguing. It was then further fuelled with reports claiming that the actor had bought a home in the UK so he could be near to France, where Vanessa will live with their two children.
“Johnny isn’t handling anything well right now,” a source said. “People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end.”
“Johnny has started reaching out to lawyers, probably to quietly discuss how to get out of the relationship. They’re not married but they’ve been together for years and have kids together so it isn’t as easy as just breaking up.
“Johnny is so talented at acting, but he doesn’t seem able to hide how badly things are going right now.”
It was also reported that Angelina spoke to Johnny about the split and urged him to fix things with Vanessa.
