Johnny Depp's daughter has shown her support for the actor against allegations of abuse from his estranged wife, Amber Heard. Lily-Rose Depp took to Instagram to defend her father.

The French-American model shared a picture of herself along with Depp when she was a baby on the photo-sharing website. She captioned the image: "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."

Following that, the 17-year-old shared a screenshot from People magazine claiming that the Edward Scissorhands actor is innocent. The post read: "The Los Angeles Police Department investigated Amber Heard's domestic abuse claim against Johnny Depp on May 21, but found no proof that a crime had occurred, a police spokesman tells PEOPLE."

"'On May 21, 2016, officers responded to a domestic incident radio call...' LAPD Sgt. Marlon Marrache says. 'The person reporting the crime [Heard] did not insist on a report and no report was warranted. There was no evidence of any crime. A crime did not occur so the officers left the scene and left a business card.'"

"Marrache adds that if there had been any signs of abuse, officers would have conducted an investigation, regardless of what Heard said had happened."

Heard and Depp met during the filming of their movie The Rum Diary in 2011. The 52-year-old actor, who was married to Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1985, proposed to Heard on Christmas Eve 2013 after dating for a year. The two tied the knot in February 2015.

On 23 May, Heard filed for divorce from Depp. Two days later, she filed for a restraining order stating that he hit her with an iPhone.
