Johny Depp’s wife 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,”
According to TMZ, Depp’s first wife Lori Anne Allison told friends that Depp, to whom she was married between 1983 and 1985, was a “soft person” who was never aggressive during their relationship.
