Lily-Rose is Depp’s only daughter with ex-wife Vanessa Paradis, who was born in 1999.
“When Lily-Rose arrived, you know it was sorta like . . . boom! You hit the pavement and it’s strong beneath you and suddenly you realize, ‘Ah, that’s what it’s for. That’s why you care about integrity or doing things without compromise. It’s for that. It’s for her.”

“I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said,” she said in an interview with Time Magazine,
“He was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.”
