This makes his second former love to come forward in his defense!
Winona Ryder claims her actor ex Johnny Depp was "never abusive at all" during their four year relationship amid Amber Heard's domestic violence allegations.
"I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. 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," the actress told Time.
The pair met at a film premiere in 1990 and got engaged a mere five months later, so the Girl Interrupted star admits her perspective is one from a long time ago.
"I wasn't there. I don't know what happened. I'm not calling anyone a liar. I'm just saying, it's difficult and upsetting for me to wrap my head around it. Look, it was a long time ago, but we were together for four years, and it was a big relationship for me. Imagine if someone you dated when you were – I was 17 when I met him – was accused of that. It's just shocking. I have never seen him be violent toward a person before," she explained.
"It's just hard to picture. The only word I can come up with is unimaginable. You know with certain people you hear something and go, 'I can see that.' But this isn't that," she continued. "I can only offer my own experience. It's such a serious, horrible thing to be accused of," she concluded.
One thing's for sure -- Johnny doesn't any bitter exes except for Amber!

We remember this story like it was yesterday!
Jamie Lynn Spears shocked the world when she announced she was pregnant at just 16-years-old, and in her new TLC special Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out, which aired on Sunday, June 25, the now 25-year-old opens up about her teen pregnancy and how she found out she was expecting in a gas station bathroom!
"I don't know how you can say this without feeling a little tacky. I kept actually throwing up," she explained of first suspecting she might have a bun in the oven. When her friend suggested she might be pregnant, they bought a home pregnancy test and headed to the gas station to take it. "We didn't want to do it at home, so I went in the BP and I took a pregnancy test," she revealed.
The former child star also discussed her decision to keep the child and raise her as a single parent after her breakup with fiancé Casey Aldridge.
"At the end of the day I knew I had to make a decision as a young girl myself to do something that I could sleep with every night. I knew deep down that I was going to have my little girl, even if I had to raise her on my own, and that's what I did," she declared.

Everyone needs to calm down and leave JT alone!
Justin Timberlake is getting major backlash after tweeting in support of Jesse Williams' BET awards acceptance speech last night, and it seems like people are being hyper sensitive.
"This invention called whiteness uses and abuses us. Burying black people out of sight and out of mind while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil — black gold, ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit," Williams highlighted in his Black Lives Matter speech.
"@iJesseWilliams tho...#Inspired #BET2016," Timberlake wrote on Twitter following the Grey's Anatomy star's inspiring words, and fans were quick to slam the "Can't Stop The Feeling" crooner for being one of the people appropriating black culture that Williams was referring to.
"Oh, you sweet soul. The more you realize that we are the same, the more we can have a conversation," he tweeted as a response to the criticism, but then felt it necessary to add even more explanation when the comments turned increasingly nasty. "I feel misunderstood. I responded to a specific tweet that wasn’t meant to be a general response. I shouldn’t have responded anyway..." he added.
"I forget this forum sometimes...I was truly inspired by @iJesseWilliams speech because I really do feel that we are all one... A human race. I apologize to anyone that felt I was out of turn. I have nothing but LOVE FOR YOU AND ALL OF US. --JT," he concluded.

A Minnesota judge is holding a hearing today to help move forward with divvying up Prince’s estate, which is worth nearly $300 million.
Bremer Trust has been managing Prince’s estate until the family can come to a legal agreement over how things will be divided. Prince has one sister, Tyka Nelson, and several half-siblings: John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker.
Per Minnesota law, Prince's children and parents would be the first family members entitled to his estate, but since he never had kids and his parents are deceased, his siblings would be next in line.
Prince was pronounced dead after being found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park home in Chanhassen, Minnesota at the age of 57. Earlier this month it was reported that the legendary singer died of an opioid overdose, though the official results of his autopsy have yet to be made public.

When bae takes a break from a snuggle sesh to get you burgers, you know it's serious!
On Sunday Tyga cruised around Los Angeles in girlfriend Kylie Jenner's blue Ferrari, and he picked up all kinds of goodies at In 'N Out. We're guessing he was reporting back to Kylie immediately after this -- I mean, why else would he be taking her car?
After taking a break for about a month, Kylie and Tyga are definitely back on, though we're not sure how long it will last this time around. On Thursday night, Tyga posted (and then deleted) an Instagram snapshot of Kylie in a super sexy outfit and wrote, "They always come back." We're guessing Kylizzle demanded that her douchebeau take down the snapshot -- and seeing as he's going on food runs for her, it seems like he's doing everything she wants. For now...

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick took their oldest kids, Mason and Penelope, to the movies on Saturday, and they met up with mom Kris Jenner, Kimye and Nori to catch a matinee screening of Finding Dory. Fun!
Kourtney carried Penelope and Scott held hands with Mason, and later on the family headed home and ordered sushi for dinner. Scott posted a photo of Kourtney in a bathrobe munching away and wrote, "Look like a panda," poking fun at her face mask. Um, so was Scott spending the night? And what's the status of their relationship? We know they split almost exactly a year ago, but they seem to be spending more and more time together lately -- and it seems like more than just amicable family time with the kids.
"There is no hope for a reconciliation," an insider told Radar. "They will not ever get back together. Neither one of them want that anymore. They are both perfectly happy co-parenting and being best friends." OK then!
Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky went on a stroll in Paris on Friday night, and after going on a dinner date at L’Avenue restaurant, the duo partied it up at the Cartel Club, where they danced the night away. Um, what happened to Kendall and NBA star Jordan Clarkson!? Just last week they stepped out at 1 Oak nightclub in Hollywood, but it seems like that's already over! Or maybe it will be once he sees these pics? It certainly seems like Kenny is playing the field ... and we love it!
Kendall is currently in Paris for Fashion Week, and a number of fans snapped photos of the supermodel and the rapper together and posted them on social media. While she's been friends with Rocky for several months, this seems like a little more than a casual evening out. I mean, look at how dolled up she is!
