Johnny Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, has come to his defense in wake of domestic abuse allegations from actress Amber Heard, who recently filed for divorce from the “Alice Through the Looking Glass” star.
Lily-Rose, who is an actress herself, used Instagram to gush about her father on Sunday.
“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,” the 17-year-old “Yoga Hosers” star wrote.
The caption appeared next to an older photo of Depp with Lily-Rose as an infant. The cute pic shows a candid moment, as Depp apparently helps his daughter take some of her first steps.
The young actress is starring in Kevin Smith‘s “Yoga Hosers,” opening in theaters July 29. Her famous father also makes an appearance in the horror comedy, reprising his character from Smith’s last feature film, “Tusk.”
Lily-Rose’s Instagram post come on the heels of a judge granting Heard a temporary restraining order against Depp on Friday. Heard claims the actor threw an iPhone at her face and pulled her hair. A court hearing for the case will be held next month.
The actress filed for divorce earlier last week claiming irreconcilable differences.
Lily-Rose’s mother, Vanesa Paradis, has also reportedly written a note in defense of “sensitive, loving” Depp.
“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 letter reads.
