Johnny Depp Buying Country Mansion?

Thursday, January 26, 2012

JOHNNY Depp is buying a new house!

The actor — who has reportedly split with Vanessa Paradis after 13 years together — has apparently splashed out on a new $10.8 million estate, Burnham Westgate Hall in Norfolk, England.

The property is set on 40 acres of land.

“He’s such a big star — everyone is quite excited about him moving in,” a neighbor told America’s Life & Style.

The 15,870-square-foot abode was built in 1750 and boasts 13 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

This home will be the newest addition to Johnny’s real estate portfolio, which includes a mansion in West Hollywood, an estate in Plan de la Tour, France, and a private island in the Bahamas.

Reports earlier this month claimed Depp and Paradis have been arguing constantly.

Depp, sources said, is struggling to deal with the couple’s crucial problems.

“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’s also been claimed that Depp’s The Tourist costar, Angelina Jolie, has urged him to fix the relationship.

“They stayed in touch after The Tourist,” a source said.

“When she heard what was going on she reached out to him to see how he was coping and urged him to work it out.”

    Vanessa has already confirmed the split rumors are false.  It this rumor about him buying a home were true it would make sense since he works in England a lot and while he was filming Dark Shadows I read that he rented a mansion.  There were also rumors last year that he bought a house in Venice (and this was all over the internet and newspaspers) which he said in a video interview that it was NOT true.

    It’s a rumour.  JD is not purchasing and has not purchased a home in Norfolk.

    Pseudo journalists – use your imagination, invent something new.
