The couple officially announced their separation after 14 years together, last month, and the break up is apparently a “weight off his shoulders”.
A source close to the actor told Radar Online: “Johnny has been saying that he is immensely relieved to finally be out of the relationship with Vanessa, he feels like the weight of the world is off his shoulders.
“As they were splitting up and only those close to them knew about it Johnny was struggling with keeping his life hidden.”
The insider continued: “He was out partying too much, friends were worried about his drinking and he was starting to get out of control. Once he and Vanessa admitted that their relationship was over he was able to loosen up and not wallow in misery.”
The actor is currently about to enjoy a vacation with his kids, daughter Lily-Rose and son Jack, for some relaxation in the French Riviera.
