Four months after PEOPLE reported that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s relationship was all but finished, Depp on Wednesday denied that he and his partner of 14 years had split.
“The rumors are not true. They are absolutely not true,” the actor, 48, said on the red carpet for the London premiere of Dark Shadows, according to U.K.’s Sun.
Still, conspicuously absent from the premiere was Paradis, who has not been seen publicly with Depp since reports about trouble between them. She also has not shared a red carpet with him in at least a year and a half.
