In 2016, Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, obtained a domestic violence restraining order against the actor in the midst of their divorce. Ryder, who is known for keeping quiet about her personal life, told the magazine Time that Depp never abused her during their relationship, which had ended decades earlier. Depp, now 59, has long denied the allegations.

“I can only speak from my own experience, which was very different from what is said”Ryder explained at the time. “He was never, he was never that way with me. He never abused me at all. I just know him as a really nice, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.”

“I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. I’m not going to call anyone a liar.”Ryder continued. “I’m just saying it’s hard and upsetting for me to understand. Look, it was a long time ago, but we were together for four years and it was a great relationship for me. Imagine if someone you went out with, I was 17 when I met him , he was accused of that. It’s shocking. I’ve never seen him be violent with a person before.”
