Lily-Rose Depp defends her silence on dad Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial

Lily-Rose Depp has defended her decision to stay silent during her father Johnny Depp’s defamation trial this year.

The 23-year-old model received backlash online after she refused to address the controversy surrounding Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard when they went to court in April.

Speaking to Elle Magazine Lily-Rose explained the event was too private to open up about at the time.

“When it’s something that’s so private and so personal, that all of a sudden becomes not so personal,” she explained.

Lily-Rose also hit back at critics who she claimed only find interest in her because of her celebrity family, and who she dates.

“I feel like, for a lot of my career, people have really wanted to define me by the men in my life, whether that’s my family members or my boyfriends, whatever,” she said.

“And I’m really ready to be defined for the things that I put out there.”
