The 47-year-old defended Depp following his bitter split from Heard, who accused him of being abusive when they split in May, reports people.com.

Depp has children Lily-Rose, 17, and Jack, 14, with ex-partner Vanessa Paradis.

"Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when Jack was born, so we go back," Manson told The Daily Best magazine.

"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," he said.

After Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May after 15 months of marriage, she sought a restraining order after accusing him of striking her in the face with an iPhone and reports subsequently emerged of their explosive rows.
