Johnny Depp’s loving daughter Lily-Rose Depp has broken her silence on claims her Hollywood star father was abusive towards his estranged wife, Amber Heard.

The 17-year-old newly appointed face of Chanel posted a touching throwback picture of Johnny holding her hand as a baby with a caption in support of her famous 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.”

Lily-Rose’s mother is Vanessa Paradis, Johnny’s ex partner. The former couple also share a 14-year-old son Jack.

Lily-Rose shared a vintage snap of her and her dad to show her support.

Lily-Rose’s statement was one of a few statements reportedly made by people close to Johnny, speaking out about the domestic abuse claims made by Amber.

Vanessa reportedly also made a statement in support of the Alice Through The Looking Glass actor.

Vanessa threw her support behind her former lover.

TMZ reportedly obtained a letter written by the 43-year-old that spoke of Johnny’s kind nature throughout their 14-year union.

“He’s a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations being made are outrageous,” Vanessa reportedly wrote.

Amber was granted a temporary restraining order against Johnny late last week.

She continued: “In all these 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 Pirates of the Caribbean actor’s first wife Lori Anne Allison also spoke out on behalf of her former husband, according to TMZ.
