Trouble in Johnny Depp-Vanessa Paradis` paradise?

Los Angeles: Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp`s long term relationship with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis is reportedly in trouble.

The actor and Paradis are said to be headed for a split because of their constant bickering, according to Radar Online.

"People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now," a source told the website.

Depp, 48 and Paradis, 39, have been together for 14-year and are the parents of Lily-Rose, 12, and nine-year-old Jack.

"Johnny isn`t handling anything well right now," a source told the website said, adding Depp is seeking legal advice.

"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," the unnamed source said.

Depp was spotted on New Year`s Eve in Los Angeles with Paradis, their two children and a woman believed to be his mother, Betty Sue.

He started dating Paradis in 1998, when they met on the set of the Roman Polanski thriller `The Ninth Gate`.

Depp had earlier denied the need for marriage.

"I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don`t need somebody to say: `OK, you`re married`. She and I have been together for nearly 14 years, and, well, I can hardly believe it. It only seems like yesterday that we met," the actor had said.

The family divides its time between France, Los Angeles and Bahamas.
