Johnny Depp’s Ex Vanessa Paradis Reportedly Writes a Letter in His Defense: ‘He Has Never Been Physically Abusive With Me’

Johnny Depp’s ex Vanessa Paradis reportedly wrote a letter in his defense amid the shocking domestic abuse allegations by his estranged wife, Amber Heard.

According to a handwritten letter obtained by TMZ, Paradis, 43, allegedly insists that Depp, 52, was nothing but kind and loving during their 14-year relationship, which ended in 2012.

“Johnny Depp is the father of my two children,” she wrote. “He is a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart, that these recent allegations being made are outrageous.”

The French singer, who reportedly penned the letter on Friday, May 27, in Los Angeles, continued, “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.”

The former couple share two children together — Lily-Rose, 17, and Jack, 14.

Lily-Rose also defended her dad with a sweet message and throwback photo shared via Instagram on Sunday, May 29.

“My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know,” she wrote. “He’s been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same.”

As Us Weekly previously reported, Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Depp on Monday, May 23, after 15 months of marriage. She was later granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order against the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who she claims was physically abusive throughout their relationship. Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, argued that Heard is merely trying to secure financial gain with her allegations.
