Ever since Amber Heard was granted a restraining order against estranged husband Johnny Depp after accusing him of domestic violence, more and more people are speaking out in defence of the actor.

An LA judge granted the temporary order, which states that Johnny must stay 91 metres from Amber, 30, at all times and avoid contact with her until a June 17 hearing.

The 52-year-old’s ex-partner Vanessa Paradis, 43, has penned a letter in support of the actor – specifically, outlining the loving nature of their 14-year relationship and her disbelief over Amber’s claims.

It begins, ‘Johnny Depp is the father of my two children, he is a sensitive, loving and loved person’.

‘I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations made are outrageous, in all the years I have known Johnny he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I lived with for 14 wonderful years.’

Furthermore, Johnny’s 17-year-old daughter Lily-Rose has taken to Instagram to show support for her dad, uploading an old photo in which Johnny is holding her as 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,’ she captioned the snap.

The image has gained lots of support from Johnny’s fans, who are sceptical of Amber’s domestic violence allegations. Lily-Rose has since shared a screen grab of a People article that says the LAPD had investigated Amber’s abuse claims and found no proof of a crime.


As the couple’s divorce gets more complicated by the day, it doesn’t look like the proceeding will be over any time soon.
