Talking about ending his 14-year relationship with Paradis, the 50-year-old told Rolling Stone magazine that the last couple years have been a bit bumpy and at times, unpleasant, the CBS News reported.
He told the magazine that split wasn't easy on him, neither was it easy for Paradis, who is mother of his two children.
He asserted that irrespective of the reason, the split doesn't stop the fact that you care for that person, and she's the mother of your kids, and so you'll always know each other.
Depp said that his love for their two kids, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, has made him want to stay sober through the break-up.
He went on saying that his kids are taking him ending things with their mother quite well as they have been incredibly understanding and strong throughout the whole ordeal.
