Celebrities don't always play by traditional rules when it comes to real estate. Johnny Depp bought a home for his ex and star couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have listed a townhome for sale they never lived in.
When it comes to breakups and sharing the treasure, Johnny Depp is no pirate.
According to the New York Daily News, the 49-year-old Depp has made real good on his good-guy image by purchasing a Hollywood Hills home for his former partner, Vanessa Paradis.
The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star has netted more than $300 million for his box-office-smashing film work, according to Curbed, so the $4.4 million sale price won't put a dent in Depp's stash. Still, the gesture goes a long way to preserving the peace between Depp and Paradis, 39, the mother of his two children, 13-year-old Lily-Rose and 9-year-old Jack.
The 5,800-square-foot home is nestled on a wooded lot of an Hollywood A-lister retreat off Mulholland Drive. Along with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the Mediterranean spread earns its "wow" factor from the exposed wood beams, the masterful tile work and swimmer's pool and spa.
Paradis and Depp were never married, and their relationship officially came to an end after they moved from France to Los Angeles last year.

When you're at the level of star caliber of Sarah Jessica Parker or Matthew Broderick, you can do things like buy a townhouse you never move in to.
The couple have long been on the hunt for their perfect townhouse. They thought they found one in Greenwich Village, but according to Curbed, after purchasing the home and even dropping some serious money to renovate it, they're moving on.
Listed for $24.995 million, the stately Manhattan townhouse is 25.5 feet wide and located just off Fifth Avenue. Parker and Broderick picked up the home for $18.995 million last year.
A double parlor with 12.5-foot ceilings opens from the home's entrance. From here, there's access to a private, tiered garden that is connected to the kitchen. The third floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, while the fourth floor holds the entire master suite with multiple walk-in closets and giant terrace.
