Just like his friend states, we doubt Johnny will be talking to him again.
A close friend of Johnny Depp, comedian Doug Stanhope shared his shocking views on the Amber Heard abuse allegations in a new post.
Doug issued his scathing words about Amber in a guest column for 'The Wrap', and he didn't hold back. He claims he was at their home the DAY of the alleged domestic assault, and also claims that he and other friends of Johnny's believed she would resort to this one day.
Read excerpts from his article below:
“We assumed initially that his dour mood was because of his mother’s death the day before. But he opened up in the most vulnerable of ways that it was not only his mother, but that Amber was now going to leave him, threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms,”
“Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified.”
“I knew it was bulls—,”
“We’d watched it build like this since before they were married. We’d watched her manipulate and f— with him for years. We didn’t say a word. To each other, yes, but never to him… My girlfriend, Bingo, and I have known Johnny Depp for a few years now. We have watched Amber Heard f— with him at his weakest — or watched him at his weakest from being f—ed with — for the entire time we’ve known him.”
“Abusing women is bulls—. Johnny doesn’t abuse anyone. And he told me that day ahead of time that she’d pull some kind of s— like this. Johnny Depp got used, manipulated, set up and made to look like an a–hole. And he saw it coming and didn’t or couldn’t do anything to stop it,”
“He may never talk to me again for saying it but I’d never forgive myself for not coming to his defense out of fear or ego. I stand up for my friends and I tell the f—ing truth.”
Since Doug's column, Amber's lawyer issued a statement, denying the claims:
“allegations against Ms. Heard are absolutely and unequivocally false.” The claim that she is blackmailing Johnny “has no basis in reality and is nothing but the typical celebrity muckraking for profit.”
Johnny has still yet to respond to the allegations himself, as he is still on tour in Europe with his band Hollywood Vampires.
