Singer Vanessa Paradis gave an emotional interview about the pain of heartbreak just two days before she announced her split from Johnny Depp.
The stars confirmed the end of their 14-year relationship in June after months of break-up rumours, but both have remained silent since the split.
It has now emerged that the French artist gave an interview to America's Harper's Bazaar magazine just two days before the news hit the headlines.
"Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life," Paradis told the publication. "Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it."
The couple are parents to Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10.
