But in 1994 he started dating British supermodel Kate Moss until 1998.
He then established a relationship with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis and the couple has two children from it-Lily (born 1999) and John Jack (born 2002). He said at that time:
“Children have given me real foundation, a real strong place to stand in life, in work, in everything … You can’t plan the kind of deep love that results in children. Fatherhood was not a conscious decision. It was part of the wonderful ride I was on. It was destiny. All the math finally worked.”

Heard filed for divorce the next year and also obtained a restraining order against him on charges of domestic violence. There has been some settlement reached between the parties on this matter.
