As the Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, controversy is at it’s peaks there are more witnesses coming forth, in favor of Depp.
Recently, Depp’s ex-partner Winona Ryder said it is “impossible to believe” the allegations. “I truly and honestly only know him as a really good man.”
Actor Johnny Depp, 57 allegedly sued the executive editor, Dan Woolton of the tabloids, News Groups Newspaper, when their sun magazine referred to Depp as a “wife beater”. They stood firm In their claims and said that the title was “accurate and truthful.”Depp denies 14 allegations of domestic violence. The news groups newspaper is relying on these for their defense.
David Sherborne, Depp’s barrister spoke about the released statements of Winona Ryder and Vanessa Paradis. Paradis was also a former partner of the actor.
Winona Ryder claims Johnny is not violent or abusive
Winona Ryder was in a relationship with Depp for four years. Speaking from her “own experience” with Depp, she said that she “was absolutely shocked, confused and upset” on hearing the “accusation against him.”
She added, “The idea that he is an incredibly violent person is the farthest thing from the Johnny I knew and loved.”
She seems rather perturbed and “cannot wrap” her “head around these accusations.”
Ryder rather praises Depp and believes him to be “a really good man- an incredibly loving, extremely caring guy who was very protective.”
According to Ryder “He has never been violent or abusive to anybody,” and that he is “so very protective” of anyone that he loves. “I felt so very, very safe with him.”
Ryder says that she does “not want to call anyone a liar,” but yet for her it is impossible to believe in the allegations hurled at him.
Paradis claims Depp is humble and respectful
Apart from Ryder, actress, musician, model Vanessa Paradis also gave her statement. She had been Depp’s partner for 14 years and has known him for more than 25 years. They have, together, raised their two kids.
According to Paradis, Johnny is a very “kind, attentive, generous and non-violent person and father” she adds that Johnny is adored by everyone in the movie its due to his “humble and respectful” demeanor.
She slams Heards allegations. Paradis claims that it was “nothing like the true Johnny I have known from my personal experience of many years, I can say he was never violent or abusive to me.”
Mr Deuter, presently the European president of Depp’s production had claimed, witnessing violent gestures of Ms Heard on several occasions. He also spoke of one such incident in a flight when he clearly saw Heard “gesticulating” violently.
Sean Bett, Depp’s head of security also issued his statement. He has worked for Johnny for
nine years. According to him he saw the couple “very regularly,” and had never seen “any cuts, bruises or other injuries on Ms. Heard.”
He claims that it was Johnny Depp was being “verbally and physically” abused by Amber Heard.
He said that, “I would describe it as a recurring cycle that Ms. Heard would abuse Mr. Depp who would then remove himself from the situation.”
The case seems to be taking an interesting turn. Johnny Depp ,after all, does not seem like the “wife beater” as Sun magazine claims. As the guns slowly point towards Amber Heard now, is she a ‘husband beater?’
