Last week Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter announced they were no longer together.

During this time it’s thought Tim has grown close to production assistant Berenice Percival.
But who is the mystery blonde who was pictured at the cinema with the 56-year-old in September 2013?

In the beginning
Berenice is a 39-year-old production assistant who started working with the American director three years ago.
According to reports they were introduced by members of Johnny Depp’s support team.
The pretty blonde worked as an assistant on on a number of Johnny’s films including Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and Sweeney Todd.
Both of these films were directed by Tim and star Helena.

Business with pleasure
The mother-of-one initially began helping out with basic administration but was soon joining Tim on business trips around the world.
It’s thought the pair really hit it off while on a trip to Vancouver.
A source told scallywagandvagabond.com: “They were there for a few days. They stayed out late and drank tequila.”
Setting the rumour mill in motion
The reported new couple were first seen spotted canoodling after a cinema date in Hampstead, London in September 2013.
In the images Tim can be seen embracing the younger film worker in a car park behind the cinema.
At the time Helena rubbished rumours that her partner had been unfaithful.
She said: "The pictures were taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues."
It’s now been suggested by a source that Helena assumed Tim was having a ‘midlife crisis’ and ‘would get it out of his system.’

Tim is currently believed to be living with Berenice and her nine-year-old son in her London home.
Berenice is reportedly ‘in love’ with the quirky creator.
A source revealed: “Berenice is telling friends that they’re happy, in love and that she sees a future with Tim.
“He has been caring and a lovely father figure to her son. She refers to Tim as her boyfriend.”
According to scallywagandvagabond.com the pair have just returned from a trip to San Francisco and will be back to work in the New Year.
The source said: “Berenice and Tim have just returned from San Francisco and will start shooting a new film in the New Year. It’s business as usual for them.”
