Johnny Depp is set to face off with his ex-wife, Amber Heard, in court over allegations of domestic violence, and the actor just received another powerful ally in his corner as his OG ex-wife Vannessa Paradis, is throwing her support behind the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star.

47-year-old Paradis, who was in a relationship with Depp for 14 years and has two children with him, filed a declaration in his Virginia defamation case against Heard. Paradis called the allegations made by the “Aquaman” star, “false facts.”

Paradis went on record that she’s willing to appear and testify on Depp’s behalf if she were to be called as a witness. The model stated:

"I work as a musician, singer-songwriter, actress, and fashion model. I have known Johnny Depp for more than 25 years. We’ve been partners for 14 years and we raised our two children together. Through all these years I’ve known Johnny to be a kind, attentive, generous, and non-violent person and father.”

Paradis writes that Depp is well-liked by all of his peers in Hollywood, and also calls out his vast abilities as an actor.

"On movie sets the actors, directors and entire crews adore him because he is humble and respectful to everyone, as well as being one of the best actors we’ve seen," Paradis stated.

In what could be the most powerful and relevant part of her declaration, Paradis assures the court that Depp was never violent during their relationship. Paradis has previously maintained the same position since Heard’s allegations went public and shown nothing but support for the father of her children.

"I am aware of the allegations which Amber Heard has publicly accused Johnny of for more than 4 years now,” Paradis wrote.

She continued, “This is nothing like the true Johnny I have known, and from my personal experience of many years, I can say he was never violent or abusive to me."

Shockingly, in her declaration, Vanessa decided to go further than just explaining her experiences with Depp -- she actually calls out Amber Heard's allegations against as untrue.

"I have seen that these outrageous statements have been really distressing, and also caused damage to his career because unfortunately, people have gone on believing these false facts."

Paradis even wrote about the affect the allegations have had on Depp, as she believes he has done too much good during his life to warrant the accusations.

”This is so upsetting as he has helped so many persons in his personal and professional life, with kindness and generosity,” she wrote.

As we reported, several other famous friends, actresses, and ex-partners have come to Johnny's defense including Winona Ryder and Penelope Cruz. The declarations could become extremely important as the two stars continue to head towards a trial in Virginia.

Depp's attorney Adam Waldman isn't surprised by the outpouring of legal statements made, telling The Blast, “Amber Heard attempted to project her own history of abusing others onto Johnny Depp. A groundswell of sworn statements rejecting Heard’s bogus characterization from those who have known and loved Johnny for decades should surprise no one. In contrast, Amber Heard’s confederates and erstwhile witnesses are now crumbling like cookies, recanting their testimony and pulling away from her hoax.”
