Wednesday gossip roundup: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are getting matching tattoos

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber in the audience at the 2011 American Music Awards.

After six months of dodging rumors that they were on the rocks, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have ended their 14-year relationship, Depp’s rep confirms in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. “Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children,” the statement reads. There’s no word on how Depp and Paradis, who never married, will handle custody of their children, 12-year-old Lily Rose and 9-year-old Jack.

Wedding preparations might be getting to Alec Baldwin, as the “30 Rock” actor allegedly punched a cameraman in the face outside New York City’s Marriage License Bureau, according to the New York Daily News. The paper insists that the photographer in question, Marcus Santos, was minding his own business when Baldwin charged at him. “He was looking mad,” Santos says. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’ He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin.” But Baldwin tells a different story on Twitter. “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning,” he posted, adding in a reference to the recent Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida: “I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over.”

It must be love between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, because the young couple is taking a very big step together: The Canadian pop star and former Disney Channel actress will reportedly be headed to New York tattoo artist Bang Bang’s shop to get some ink together, according to Hollyscoop. The source didn’t say exactly what the pair would be getting, but it will be “something small.” Gomez already has a piece by Bang Bang on her side, and Bieber has a growing collection of tattoos, including a portrait of Jesus on his lower leg.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis learned the hard way that vacations in paradise can be treacherous. During a trip to Jamaica — their first as a couple — Wilde says Sudeikis nearly drowned kayaking and she was stung by a swarm of jellyfish. First they set out on a kayaking trip across a bay, despite being warned about stormy seas, only to be rescued by fisherman. “They had been watching us with binoculars. I’m sure they were taking bets on who would go down first,” Wilde tells David Letterman in an interview. They then tried something more relaxing, only to be faced with the swarm of jellyfish. “I was covered in welts,” Wilde says. “I had to go and get the same rescue team to come back with a kayak to get [Sudeikis] out of the water.”

Rapper Lil Wayne is reportedly pressuring Drake to make peace with Chris Brown after last weeks New York nightclub brawl, according to TMZ. But why the desire to calm tensions? Because Wayne is worried it will hurt his business, as songs with Brown doing a guest vocal tend to be big hits, a source explains. “Making money matters most,” a source says. Drake, for his part, is reportedly hesitant to extend an olive branch until he knows that Brown doesn’t blame him for instigating the brawl.

Charlie Sheen admits that he’s had to make some changes to the way he parties at his house after last year’s very public flame-out. “We take phones and purses at my house, and people have to sign s—,” Sheen tells Playboy magazine. “I’m not living in the Pentagon, but I’ve been burned enough to have to take precautions. It’s either that or choose a different type of woman or party guest, because you never know.” And as for why the troubled actor remains popular? He has a theory: “If you’re special, you’re tortured,” he says. “I know that sounds arrogant, but you can’t not be special and have a 30-year career. You can’t not be a little different from others and be successful for three decades. Your mind has to work a little differently than the average brain.”
