Despite the Aquaman star's insistence that Johnny was an "awful father" and that his own children — he shares daughter Lily-Rose, 22, and Jack, 20, with Vanessa Paradis — openly disliked him, the actor countered that it was actually the opposite.
The Yoga Hosers actress also previously spoke out against the abuse allegations hedged against her father in 2016, claiming they were directly opposite of his character. "My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know," she wrote via social media. "He's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same."
As OK! previously reported, Johnny also recently testified that he never once hit the All the Boys Love Mandy Lane actress. Now, he hopes to resolve this, not only for his career and reputation, but for the sakes of his kids.
"Never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life," he told the court. "Since I knew that there was no truth to [Heard's claims] whatsoever, I felt it my responsibility to stand up not only for myself in that instance, but stand up for my children."
He continued, "I wanted to clear my children of this horrid thing that they were having to read about their father, which was untrue."
