Johnny Depp is getting support from friends and relatives after his wife accused him of physical and verbal abuse and applied for divorce. The Pirates of Caribbean star’s former partner and mother of his two children Lily-Rose Depp and Jack, Vanessa Paradise, Defended the Actor from ‘Outrageous’ Domestic Abuse Allegations.
Daughter Lily posted a picture on Instagram showing her as a baby with her father holding her hands and helping her to walk. Rose described her father as the sweetest and most loving father for her and her kid brother. She added that everyone who knows him would say the same.
A temporary restraining order was issued against the actor when his wife appeared in a court with a black eye accusing the actor of domestic violence.
Heard has filed for divorce in Los Angles accusing him of repeated physical assault and sought spousal support. She also produced pictures in the court showing a bruise on her face that she claimed was inflicted during a fight, and said she feared Johnny might harm her. The former actress and model gave a sworn statement which stated that her husband was verbally and physically abusive all through their married life.
The couple had met on the sets of The Rum Diary in 2011. The 52-year-old actor was still in a relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis, the mother of Lily-Rose and her brother Jack.
The estranged couple doesn’t have any children and were earlier embroiled in a spat with Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce since Heard failed to declare the couple’s two dogs, Pistol, and Boo, on arrival at the Gold Coast last year.
The feud was re-ignited when Depp told US talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live that Mr. Barnaby Joyce looked like he was interbred with a tomato.
