More people close to Johnny Depp are publicly speaking out in defense of the actor.

Vanessa Paradis, Depp's ex and the mother of his two children, reportedly wrote a letter defending her former partner of 14 years.

"Johnny Depp is the father of my two children, he is a sensitive, loving and loved person," Paradis allegedly wrote in the letter obtained by TMZ.

E! News has not yet confirmed the letter, and a rep for the French actress and singer has not returned request for comment.

The handwritten letter continues, "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."

Earlier today, Lily-Rose Depp took to Instagram to give her father support and weigh in on the domestic abuse allegations made by Johnny's soon-to-be ex-wife, Amber Heard.

"My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know," she wrote alongside a throwback photo of her dad holding her as a toddler. "He's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same."

As of Friday, a Los Angeles judge had ordered that the Through the Looking Glass star stay 100 yards away from Amber and said that the 30-year-old actress was able to stay and live in the family home.

Amber's restraining order request came just days after she filed for divorce from the star, citing irreconcilable differences in the court documents.

"This is not about right now. It's an ongoing thing that she needs protection from. She did what she had to do protect herself," an insider told E! News at the time.

Our insider added, "It wasn't an easy decision, but this is the truth. It was very hard for her."
