Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are officially a couple.

(Fireworks, crowds applauding, a marching band playing)

Of course, we knew this already, just as we thought they already broke up. But no. The week the National Enquirer reported that after Heard gave Depp an ultimatum about going public with the relationship, "The Rum Diary" co-stars were photographed Saturday night holding hands at a surprise Rolling Stones small-club show in Los Angeles.

(Sounds of thousands of women sighing "awwwwww").

"Amber has been at Johnny to go public since the beginning of the year," a source told the Enquirer, according to MSN.com. "When he balked, she walked out on him and went back to (sometime girlfriend) Tasya (van Ree]) and Johnny totally freaked out. Amber's become the major organizer of his crazy world, and he couldn't cope without her."

She sounds almost as important as the Internet.

Us Weekly reported that Depp built a bar at his Bahamas estate that's an exact replica of the one from "The Rum Diary." Heard was reportedly surprised at the romantic gesture when she saw the bar earlier this month.

There have also been reports the 49-year-old Depp has written several poems for the 27-year-old Heard and gave her a horse.

Is this guy trying to make the rest of us look bad?

"They are so in love," said the Us Weekly source. "He's crazy about her."

The actors were first linked last July, a month after Depp split from longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children. Around the same time, Heard reportedly ended her four-year relationship with photographer van Ree.
