Marilyn Manson spoke out in defense of his friend Johnny Depp recently. According to JustJared.com, The Beautiful People singer opened up about his friendship with Depp. He also referenced Amber Heard’s domestic violence allegations against Depp in an interview. “Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when (his son) Jack was born, so we go back. Johnny is one of the nicest people that I know — to the extent where it’s almost heartbreaking how kind he is to his friends, and everyone around him. I know that he was completely crucified — unjustly,” the 47-year-old star told The Daily Beast.
Marilyn continued, “I would stand by him on anything. As my friend, I know that he’s handling it the best he can and he’s a great dad, too. It fills me with joy to see his kids grow up and be so smart, and so hilarious. We played a show together not too long ago. It’s hard to say when you talk about your friends. Of course I think that all of it was bullshit, and I think that he is a great person. I wouldn’t agree with any of it if someone were to put me on the stand and ask me what I know, or what I’ve witnessed.” (sic)
