Johny Depp’s long-term ex partner and the mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis has dismissed Amber Heard’s domestic violence claims as “outrageous” and has said the actor is a sensitive and loving person.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge last Friday issued a temporary domestic violence restraining order against Depp after his wife Heard alleged he had been violent towards her on multiple occasions during their 15-month marriage.
Heard appeared in court, with a visible bruise on her face, alleging that Depp threw a Phone at her face last Saturday and a month before “grabbed [her] by the hair and violently shove [her] to the floor”. In court documents, Heard wrote, “I live in fear that Johnny will return to the residence unannounced to terrorise me, physically and emotionally.”
The 43-year-old French actress dismissed said Depp was not once physically abusive to her during the 14 years they lived together. They were in a relationship between 1998 and 2012 and have two children together, Lily-Rose and Jack. In a letter obtained exclusively by TMZ, Paradis wrote:
“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. He is a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart, that these recent allegations being made are outrageous,”
