Vanessa Paradis and son seen in Paris after testimony cancelled

Vanessa Paradis was seen packing up her car to leave Paris with her son Jack Depp, 18, as they headed for the South Of France together on Friday.

The 47-year-old French singer’s appearance comes after her testimony in her ex-partner Johnny Depp’s libel case was cancelled last week. 

Vanessa was covered in a face mask as she stepped out in the Capital city following the decision to scrap her video link appearance during the trial.

Vanessa was wearing a denim jacket with a pair of plaid trousers and suede boots, as she toted her belongings in a padded red bag on her shoulder.

Meanwhile, her son Jack looked equally stylish in a slouchy cream jumper teamed with a pair of camel corduroy trousers, while carrying a rucksack.

Vanessa could be seen loading the back of a taxi, as they left the city and headed for a relaxing break on the coast. 

Vanessa, who was in a relationship with Johnny for more than 14 years and had two children with him, had been expected to give evidence in support of the Pirates Of The Caribbean star’s case over a videolink on Thursday.

But the court was told that there was no need for her – or his ex-fiancee in the 1990s, actress Winona Ryder – to give evidence because Depp’s claim that he has never hit a woman was only tested by the defence regarding Amber Heard.

However their bombshell statements were released by the court, showing both stood faithfully by his side.

Winona said she was ‘absolutely shocked, confused and upset’ by the allegations against him.

She added in her statement, provided in advance of the trial: ‘The idea that he is an incredibly violent person is the farthest thing from the Johnny I knew and loved.

‘I cannot wrap my head around these accusations. He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me. He has never been violent or abusive towards anybody I have seen.

‘I do not want to call anyone a liar but from my experience of Johnny, it is impossible to believe that such horrific allegations are true. I find it extremely upsetting, knowing him as I do.’

Vanessa described the actor as a ‘kind, attentive, generous and non-violent person and father.’

‘On movie sets the actors, directors and entire crews adore him because he is humble and respectful to everyone, as well as being one of the best actors we’ve seen,’ she added.

Johnny is suing The Sun publisher News Group Newspapers (NGN) and its executive editor over an April 2018 article which alleged he was violent towards ex-wife Amber, 34, during their tumultuous relationship.
