Johnny Depp's former partner has come to his defence over allegations that he was abusive to Amber Heard.
Actress Vanessa Paradis, who is the mother of Depp's two children, has described the accusation as "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,” said Paradis in a handwritten letter obtained by TMZ.
"I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations being made are outrageous.”
The couple’s 17-year-old daughter Lily-Rose echoed her mother’s sentiments, taking to Instagram the teen posted a photo of herself as a toddler with her father.
“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 said
The statements come after news that Amber Heard had filed for divorce from Depp - her husband of 15 months - citing abuse.
In court documents obtained by People, the 30-year-old actress provided evidence of two separate accounts in which she says Depp physically abused her.
"During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me," she says in the documents.
The Pirates of the Carribbean star has not directly commented on the allegations. However his attorney has filed a response that claims Heard is trying to “secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse”.
The actor’s ex-wife Lori Allison has also leapt to Depp's defence in recent days.
Allison, whom Depp was married to for two years in the 1980s, has said that he is "incapable" of hitting a woman.
