Earlier this week, Lori Anne Allison – who was married to Depp from 1983 through 1985 – came forward and described the actor as a "soft" person who never laid a hand on her.

She went on to compliment Depp for his caring way with animals and, allegedly, has told friends that she doesn’t believe Depp ever laid a hand on Amber Heard.

This has become a relevant opinion because Depp stands accused of some heinous actions.

Upon filing for a protection of custody from the star, Heard recently said in legal documents that Depp abused her.

While sporting wounds on her face, Heard told a judge that the injuries were a result of Depp hurled an iPhone in her direction.

"His temper is exceptionally scary for me as it has proven many times to be physically dangerous and/or life-threatening to me," Heard has said on record.

She also filed for divorce from Depp after 15 months of marriage.

We have no way of knowing the truth at this time, of course, but Vanessa Paradis has now also come out and showed support for the actor.

Paradis dated Depp for 14 years, splitting from him in 2012 after giving birth to Depp’s two kids, Lily-Rose, 17, and Jack, 14.

In a handwritten note obtained TMZ, Paradis refers to Depp as "a sensitive, loving and loved person."

It’s unclear just who this letter was actually written to, but it was dated May 27.

In the message, Paradis calls Heard’s claims "outrageous," and adds:

"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."

A hearing is expected to take place next month, at which time a judge will listen to Heard’s allegations and it will be decided whether or not to bring charges against Depp.
