Vanessa Paradis recently denied allegations that she and Johnny Depp had split after 14 years together, People magazine reports.

When asked about the break-up rumor by French TV show "Grand Journal" Tuesday, the 39-year-old actress said: "Yes, they [the rumors] are false."

The couple, who have spent the majority of their life together in the southern French town of Plan-de-la-Tour, have two children together, 12-year-old Lily-Rose, and 9-year-old Jack.

In December 2010, Depp told "Extra" that he didn't need a "piece of paper" to prove his commitment to Paradis, musing that "marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart."

Their rumored split brought to mind other never-married celebrity couples who stayed together for years, only to call it quits in the end. Below, some of those couples' stories.

Jessica Lange and actor-writer Sam Shepard met on the set of 1982's "Frances." The couple went on to spend nearly three decades together, raising two children, Hannah, 26, and Samuel, 24, all without ever saying "I do." The two remained similarly low-key with their breakup; reports of their split in December 2011 came two years after the couple had really called it quits in 2009, after 27 years together.
