Amid his legal drama with Amber Heard, two of Johnny Depp’s exes have reportedly come to his defense.
Vanessa Paradis dated Depp from 1998 to 2012 and is the mother of his two children, 17-year-old Lily-Rose and 14-year-old Jack. She penned a letter on Friday slamming Heard’s domestic violence allegations, according to TMZ.
“To whom it may concern, Johnny Depp is the father of my two children,” Paradis’ note, which was obtained by TMZ, began. “He is a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations being made are outrageous.”
Paradis added that she has never witnessed this type of behavior from the Alice Through the Looking Glass star. “In all the years I have known Johnny, he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I live with for 14 wonderful years,” she continued, signing the letter.
Depp’s first wife has also come to the 52-year-old actor’s defense. Lori Anne Allison, who was married to Depp from 1983 to 1985, told TMZ that the actor is a “soft person.” Allison allegedly told friends that “she doesn’t believe Amber Heard’s claim that Johnny brutalized her multiple times during their short marriage,” and she also claims that Depp never got physical with her and “never even screamed” at her.
Paradis and Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose, also came to Depp’s defense, taking to Instagram on Sunday to share a sweet message accompanied by a photo of the pair from when she was a baby.
“My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know, he’s been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same,” the Yoga Hosers star wrote.
As ET previously reported, Heard and her lawyer provided a photo to the Los Angeles court that showed various bruises on the 30-year-old actress’ face, alleging that Depp had harmed her. In her restraining order filing, Heard alsodetailed the alleged verbal and physical abuse she claims Depp inflicted on her throughout their relationship.
