Amber Heard's Lawyer Releases Lengthy Statement: "Her Silence Has Been Used Against Her


That previous statement was short and to the point.....

This one however, is trying to drive home what REALLY happened that night.

Legal team to Amber Heard Samantha F. Spector and Joseph P. Koenig have just released a very lengthy statement regarding their client.

Amber has been blasted in the media as of late for possibly lying about what really happened with estranged husband Johnny Depp. She was even called out by a friend of Depp's for blackmailing and making everything up.

The statement reads:

“As the result of Amber’s decision to decline giving an initial statement to the LAPD, her silence has been used against her by Johnny’s team. Amber did not provide a statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny’s career. Johnny’s team has forced Amber to give a statement to the LAPD to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media. Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny,”

“In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator’s playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain,” the statement continued. “In reality, Amber acted no differently than many victims of domestic violence, who think first of the harm that might come to the abuser, rather than the abuse they have already suffered. Amber can no longer endure the relentless attacks and outright lies launched against her character in the Court of Public Opinion since the tragic events of May 21st. With her statement Amber hopes to give the LAPD the opportunity to conduct an accurate and complete investigation into the events of that evening and before. If that occurs, and the truth is revealed, there is no doubt that Amber’s claims will be substantiated beyond any doubt, and hopefully Johnny will get the help that he so desperately needs.”



From the beginning it has been Amber’s desire to keep this matter as private as possible, even though LAPD officers responded to a 911 call made by a third-party. The LAPD officers viewed not only the disarray that Johnny had caused in the apartment but also the physical injuries to Amber’s face. We filed the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage at the very end of the day on Monday May 23rd and we did not serve Johnny with the Petition at the premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass that evening. We sent a letter to Johnny’s counsel team the next morning making it clear we wanted to keep this matter out of the media. We then held off requesting a domestic violence restraining order as we knew that Johnny was out of the country.

We took the high road. Unfortunately, Johnny’s team immediately went to the press and began viciously attacking Amber’s character. Amber is simply a victim of domestic violence, and none of her actions are motivated by money. Amber is a brave and financially independent woman who is showing the courage of her convictions by doing the right thing against Johnny’s relentless army of lawyers and surrogates.

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor

UPDATED WITH FULL VIDEO:


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

PopGoesTheArts Is BACK!!!!

Did you miss me?

Well, yours truly knew he wasn't going to be able to stay away forever......

After just over 3 months, I've gotten the itch to start writing again.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be dipping my toes back into my blog and of course, continuing to express my undying love of Britney Spears.



Truthfully, these past few months have given me time to reflect on what I want to get out of writing this blog again. It's not about quantity of posts, but the quality of what I'm writing. I don't watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so why write about it?

I need to focus my blog on writing about the things I love. This will no longer be a stream of daily posts about anything and everything Hollywood. Instead, this will be focused on what I find interesting and love.

I mean, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 is fast approaching......so obviously I'll be writing about that. Awards season is in full swing, so of course that's going to be discu…

'Big Little Lies' Officially Returning For Season 2

And shockingly, yours truly isn't jumping up and down for joy.

I'll get to that.

HBO has announced that this years breakout hit 'Big Little Lies' starring Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon, will be returning for a 2nd season.

At this years Emmy Awards, the show took home Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Directing (Jean-Marc Vallee).

As of right now, only Witherspoon and Kidman are confirmed to return, although reports are saying most of the cast will return as well.

Now, here comes my complaining.

This series was perfectly executed, featured stunning performances from everyone (okay, even Shailene Woodley was FINE),  and delivered an outstanding (at what we thought at the time) finale.

So.......why do we need to possibly ruin everything with a 2nd season?!

That's not to say that it will be awful, but when something is th…

My Reaction To Golden Globe Nominations

It's that time of the year again:

AWARDS SEASON!!!

The 75h Golden Globe Awards were announced yesterday, and as per every other year....

It was kind of bananas.

While most of the acting categories seemed to get things right (more on that shortly), there is quite a bit of backlash concerning the Best Director category.

The category went to all men:

Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri), Guillermo Del Toro (Shape of Water), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All The Money in the World) and Steven Spielberg (The Post).

First off, we would argue that Jordan Peele should have been nominated for 'Get Out'. Hands down, that right there is a snub.

But what about Patty Jenkins for 'Wonder Woman'? Where's Great Gerwig for 'Lady Bird'? Where the HELL is Dee Rees for Netflix's 'Mudbound'??

Oh, that's right. They're all WOMEN.

Not a single woman was nominated for Best Director at this years Globes. What happens come …

Jimmy Kimmel Returns To Late Night......With A Very Special Guest!!

Jimmy Kimmel continues to use his platform for AMAZING things.....

And how freakin' adorable is Billy!?

Last week, Jimmy Kimmel took the week off to be with his family, while his son Billy underwent his 2nd open heart surgery. Chris Pratt, Tracee Ellis-Ross, Neil Patrick Harris and Melissa McCarthy filled in for the host while he was off.

Jimmy didn't waste any time going back to pushing for healthcare, only this time there was a tad bit of a distraction as we couldn't take our eyes off of Billy.
