Johnny Depp's Ex Vanessa Paradis Pens Letter in His Defense

Johnny Depp's Ex Vanessa Paradis Pens Letter in His Defense

Vanessa Paradis is the latest person to come to the defense of Johnny Depp amid what she calls allegedly “outrageous” domestic abuse allegations from his estranged wife Amber Heard.

The 43-year-old French actress reportedly penned a letter (obtained by TMZ) about her “sensitive, loving and loved” former partner of 14 years, with whom she has two children – Lily-Rose, 17, and Jack, 14.

“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,” Vanessa allegedly wrote.

She and Johnny were together from 1998 to 2012 before he married Amber in 2015.

In case you missed it, Lily-Rose also came to her father’s defense via Instagram.

    Amber is the puppet of Marc Jacobs. He made her famous. Jacobs wants to control everyone. Jacobs has been torturing a talented Hungarian designer for 7 years. She ecxposed the truth. Read more at http://styleangelique.blogspot.hu/2016/05/marc-jacobs-has-been-copying-young.html

    Vanessa is doing this because she loves her kids, and he’s the father of her kids. If he was so “wonderful” to her why did he leave her for someone way younger than him and even her? It seemed that Vanessa truly loved him. He was like a different person from who he is now when he was with Vanessa, Amber has already ruined him. He made his own decisions though, it was him who left Vanessa and pursued Amber, and all she wanted was to use him for his fame and money – everyone saw that except him, and now he’s just having to pay for his mistake.

  • Willy Billy

    Sounds like you know them so well!

  • Cruizin1960

    Glad to know you were intimately involved with his relationship with Vanessa. Regardless of what you THINK you may know, it appears that the split with Vanessa was a long time coming. Did he move on with Amber? Sure, but that does not mean that she was the reason for the split. Your argument might have some validity (about doing it for the kids) if their children were young…they are not. To most rational people…folks who are wise enough to pick up signs and coincidences…this is a set up.

  • Mona

    I never claimed to know them on a personal level, but I saw French interviews of Vanessa talking about how much she loved him, she comes across as loyal and loving and caring of the family they created together whereas he comes across as a jerk who did her wrong by leaving her and their children for someone younger. He even looked way better when he was with Vanessa, now he can barely talk and looks like a hot mess. Again I never claimed to know them personally, yet you’re saying “the split with Vanessa was a long time coming” – there was never any evidence to prove this to be true. When he worked with Amber, he was mesmerized by her beauty and pursued her relentlessly, now he’s just having to pay for leaving his family for a rising star who saw nothing in him but the money and fame. I don’t sympathize with him. He had it coming.

  • Mimilarue82

    I do agree that anyone saw that coming, but her allegations have far more consequences..even if there are not true the damages were done already and his children would have to deal with those allegations unfortunately. Amber doesnt care all she wants is the money that she feels she is entitled with.

  • logik69

    People grow apart for various reasons. I am sure Mr. Depp will rue the day he made his big mistake marrying Ms. Heard.

  • Helen S

    It’s so disgusting how women are spewing such hate. This is why women are afraid to come out and reveal their abuse. We saw the pics of her injuries but because you guys have hard ons for Depp you are team *insert guy* Reasons why guys like Chris Brown still have careers

  • Alien Visitor

    Completely agree. Amber’s young and wild ways brought out Depp’s bad side. With Amber, his mother fell ill and his career fell away/ Furthermore, he took up drinking again.

    Apples and oranges.

  • suzybel

    Never even a sniff of anything like this about Johnny Depp in the past, as far as I can remember. Unfortunately he now has a question mark by his name from his estranged wife. Unfortunately as well, she wouldn’t be able to take back what she has accused him of.

  • Arx

    Women receive hate because other women have lied about being abused and raped. Those lying awful women create doubt and make it far more difficult for women who have ACTUALLY been abuse to have credibility.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Things happen. And even if he did leave her for another woman at the time, Vanessa doesn’t seem like a bitter woman . Johnny is not like Brad Pitt or ANgelina. Yes he had an affair but didn’t brag about it to the press nor constantly attack his ex like Pitt did.
    Now that Vanessa has come to his defense, I really starting to have my doubts about Amber.

  • Mona

    You say “he didn’t brag to the media” – um yes he did, but apparently you hadn’t been paying attention. Plus, he was with Vanessa for 14 years I believe, and he never married her. He began dating Amber in 2012 (before that he was still pursuing her, that’s why his relationship with Vanessa ended) in 2012 him and Amber moved in together, by 2015 they got married, her friends are saying she had a very hard time and cold feet on deciding whether to marry him, but she knew he was rich and famous and it would help her career, so she went through with it. She pressed on as long as she could, now she’s just doing what we were all expecting of her, except for oh “poor Johnny”.

  • xica

    He didnt marry Vanessa because Vanessa has a past too. She lived with many men before hooking up with Johnny starting relationships at the tender age of 15. Vanessa ain’t no saint either but Hollywood actors don’t seem to care about the horishness of them all. I agree Amber is a bitch too and he shouldn’t have married her either but that’s what you find in Hollyweird. Very few are kind of normal. We all commit mistakes but being a ho isn’t something I would see as forgivable.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Johnny never bragged about his relationship with Amber and the affair to the media. I don’t recall him ever slamming Vanessa or propping up Amber during those years.

  • Blu3Butterfly

    I don’t know if Amber’s allegations are true or not, but just because he didn’t abuse his past lovers is not proof that Amber lied. People can change especially if they are on drugs like she claims. I guess the court will decide if he is guily or not but I find it gross that so many people commenting are quick to burn Amber and call her a liar before the authorities investigate. It doesn’t matter if she was a gold digger or not, using that to excuse him is victim blaming, like saying she asked for it. It’s disappointing that a lot of those comments come from fellow woman.

  • Jess

    And I’m sure he’s been with many, many women since the “tender age of 15″ but would you call him a ho? Of course you wouldn’t, cause you’re clearly sexist.

  • Roscoe

    I’m still waiting for Depp’s friends to deny that he abuses drugs and alcohol. They claim to know what this man won’t do even though they weren’t witnesses to the alleged incident. Why not go all the way with it by saying he never would abuse alcohol or drugs?

    “If he was so “wonderful” to her why did he leave her for someone way younger than him and even her? ” He didn’t leave her you fuck head, they split on good terms, they are still friends and that’s why she is still defending him.

    what’s your evidence he left his family you idiot ?

    Im not sexist Im realistic. Men and women are biologically different. For me hos are like men but without the basic instinct

    I also want to give my opinion about JD & AH situation … and
    it has nothing to do with the personal experiences of the people around here at Just Jared..

    It is a case of SHE SAID, HE SAID. It’s one word against another, although we are reading statements mostly from their friends, reps, lawyers, exes. No one can really tell what really transpired between the former couple except them. What we are very sure of is that one of them is definitely lying…. and one of them is telling the truth. Also, domestic violence may or may not have happened at all.

    Whatever it is, domestic violence is a no no in a civilized society. Regardless of the status of the people who are involved with it, the victims should be protected, supported & understood. Laws in every country are there to give them protection & run after the perpetrators.

    We hope the truth will prevail on JD & AH case. Whoever is telling lies should be found guilty of perjury. And whoever is found guilty of a crime (if there’s any) should be punished to the full extent of the law.

    Meanwhile, let’s hold judgment until we are certain of the
    real story between the two and we can only do that after the proper authorities have made their investigations, evaluations & conclusions based on facts or evidence or credible witnesses being presented. Any opinion that may be formed before that, are only opinions but not necessarily conclusive.

  • Jess

    The ignorant belief that men have some sort of basic primal sexual instinct that can’t be controlled is just the type of bullsh*t that fuels rape culture. I bet you also believe a woman who dresses provocatively and then is raped was “asking for it.” Cause men can’t help themselves! But you’re not sexist! Keep on believing in fairy tales.

  • xica

    I dont think they cant control themselves but I do think they have other needs

  • Mona

    Hey you idiot reread the comment I previously posted.

  • Mona

    The terminology you use: “idiot”, “fuckhead”, the only person these words describe is you.

  • jane

    just because he didn’t hit vanessa it doesn’t mean he didn’t hit amber. if he has been on drugs or alcohol then anything is possible. the very fact that he left a stable relationship and jumped into something else so fast shows some personal changes. his life (and looks) have been very different since he hooked up with amber.

  • haremgirl

    I think it is really cool that Vanessa has said something on Johnny’s behalf. I feel that is very important.

    Sorry, but being a woman does not mean I have to give a pass to someone whom I believe is putting on a big act. There is a photo that was on Instagram the day after the event…with her looking fine and happy…it was mysteriously taken down. WOnder why? Everything is just so contrived…from the timing to the so-called photos that show evidence. Sorry, she is just not believable. I am not a huge fan of Depp, however what I am a fan of is the truth and not trying to use someone for monetary gain.

  • Cruizin1960

    There are always three sides to every story. You are relying on Vanessa’s interviews…although you didn’t say whether they were pre or post separation. Depp has also talked about their split…he said that it was a long time coming. His attraction to Amber may have been what made him finally end things, but she was not the cause of the breakdown in their relationship. He is merely guilty of being stupid and not having a pre-nup.
