Valeria Altobelli has shared her "compassion" for Johnny Depp on behalf of her non-profit for women and children who have suffered abuse.

Heard, 36, and Depp, 58, are still battling it out in the multi-million dollar defamation court case as they prepare to enter the final week of the trial. The latter is suing the Aquaman star for supposedly defaming him in an article she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018.

The op-ed was titled: "I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture's wrath."

Pirates of the Caribbean star Depp was not named in the op-ed, however, he believes it falsely implies he abused his former wife.

Altobelli is the founder and president of Mission NGO - a nonprofit that aims to fight violence against women and children around the world. She recently shared an official statement showing her support for Depp amid the explosive trial.

Heard was not mentioned in her statement.

The 37-year-old model, who was Miss World Italy 2004, said: "Violence is a serious topic. As women, as mothers, we have the duty and the responsibility to educate our sons and daughters, that's to say, the Future Generation, in the light of the values of dialogue, respect and compassion between men and women, without any gender distinction, in order to prevent violence with the weapons of love and education."

She continued: "In deep respect of the victims of domestic abuses that we have to affirm for intellectual honesty are, generally, WOMEN, we feel to express, as women, as mothers, as free thinkers, our compassion for Johnny Depp in this bad page of his personal history."

Altobelli also wrote an open letter that read: "Mission NGO women from all over the world stand against domestic violence, regardless of gender, age or race. Our mission is to educate men and women, with no gender differences, to keep talking and living in the values of love, mutual comprehension and sensitivity in order to prevent all kinds of violence, against women against men, against children.

"As women, we have compassion and we feel empathy not for THE star, THE talent, THE actor but for a man, a father, a worker, A HUMAN. Mental Health is something we have to care about to live in a positive environment where women and men can love and respect each other without any kind of abuse and violence. We are human and we have to find the HUMANITY we are born to live for."
