If Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis Split We Quit Life

Mark it in your calendars: today's the day that love officially died. They've been together for almost 14 years, raised two children together and have never seemed anything but super happy together, so you'll excuse us if we gently collapse after hearing Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis are on the verge of a split. Word on the street is that Johnny is "quietly" consulting lawyers amid talk he was caught flirting with other women recently. "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," said some absolute bummer. "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." If this is true then we should all break up with our significant others now – if they can't make it no one can. [Radar]

Model fanatic Leonardo DiCaprio has been given the go-ahead to get serious with Victoria's Secret girlfriend Erin Heatherton after a New Year's Day brunch with his mom Irmelin went swimmingly. As we know, the matriarch's approval means everything to the momma's boy and his relationship with Blake Lively was snuffed out because Irmelin said she was a low-rent tramp (I might be paraphrasing). "The meeting went well, and Mom and Erin were seen laughing," said someone. [Page Six]

The Fighter director David O. Russell has gained lifelong membership to the slimeball club – and possibly the sex-offender registry – for coming onto his transgender niece. Working out in the gym together, the 59-year-old asked his sister's kid Nicholas Peloquin, 19, about her physical transformation and put his hands under her top and "felt both breasts" when she replied that the hormones were making them grow. Russell has since told police that it was "consensual" – his niece confirming she didn't ask him to stop – and Nicholas is "always causing drama since the transgender transformation and has become very provocative and seductive."

He's makes his money from the exploitation of women, so it should come as no surprise that King of Scmucks Joe Francis was handcuffed by cops after getting into a physical fight with a female motorist. Apparently, he opened his the door of his Bentley into traffic, she crashed into it and things turned violent when they began to argue about who was at fault. The woman grabbed his cell phone as he tried to take pictures and that's when the scuffle broke out; both parties emerging with minor injuries. Though no arrests were made, it's just one more strike to add to the many thousand douchey ones already against him. [TMZ]
