(Newser) – Johnny Depp never married Vanessa Paradis, but his break-up could still cost him up to a whopping $157 million, or half his fortune, one lawyer estimates. It won't be a breeze for Paradis to claim the money—she'll need to go to court—but Depp will probably "make a lump sum payment as a settlement" to avoid costly litigation, the lawyer explains to the Sun. Apparently Depp isn't concerned, because he's spending money on rumored new flame Amber Heard: In perhaps the most amusing headline so far, the Daily Mail declares, "Johnny Depp 'buys Amber Heard a HORSE' following Vanessa Paradis split."

What the what now? Yes, a horse, a source apparently told the Globe. Heard is said to visit Depp on the Lone Ranger set often, and he wants them to be able to ride together. Maybe that's the sort of thing he couldn't do with Paradis, because Radar's source claims Depp had grown "bored senseless" with Paradis, and the relationship was "making him miserable. … Johnny just wants more from life," the source says, adding that the actor "is keen to have some fun again." But take all this with a grain of salt: People reports that Heard, who is bisexual, brought her longtime girlfriend along on at least one visit with Depp.
