Amber Heard didn't just file for divorce from Johnny Depp last week, she also filed for a restraining order, claiming that the actor had assaulted her on her birthday. While Johnny chose to stay quiet about the accusations, his former partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, and daughter Lily-Rose Depp came to his defence.

"Johnny Depp is the father of my two children, he is a sensitive, loving and loved person," Vanessa allegedly wrote in a letter obtained by TMZ. "I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations made are 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."

Lily's support read as: "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."

Other celebs such as Paul Bettany and The Walking Dead star Laurie Holden took to Twitter to also provide their support.
