Marilyn Manson says Johnny Depp was 'unjustly crucified' over divorce
Marilyn Manson has backed Johnny Depp after the actor went through divorce proceedings with Amber Heard.
The A-lister was accused of domestic abuse when the couple split in May.
Shock-rocker Manson told The Daily Beast that Depp's daughter Lily-Rose is his goddaughter and that he has been "crucified" throughout the process.
He said: "Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when Jack [Depp's son] 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.
"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."
Depp and Heard reached an agreement last month, with the domestic violence case dropped as a result.
