A mber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce is getting super nasty – and Heard continues to release information about how Depp abused her during their relationship. Close friends on both sides are defending both parties – so it’s just impossible to figure out what the real story is at this point.
Now, Benicio Del Toro has defended Johnny Depp, saying that Amber’s story is strongly suspicious and he doesn’t believe it for a moment:
“What I know, there’s a lot of trouble from the girl that sounds a little manipulative. It seems the fact that his mom passed away and she filed for divorce two days later and then she wants money and she’s saying she got hit, it’s almost like, ‘Wait, I saw them not too long ago’. Maybe it was January, a dinner for the Oscars or something like that. He was there with her and they were fine.”
Meanwhile, a close friend of Amber’s has also rushed to her defense. iO Tillett Wright claims to have seen Amber with many cuts and bruises. She wrote via twitter that she is sickened by the amount of evidence people need before believing Amber’s story of abuse:
“Bulls**t. I’ve had enough. I saw the bruises. Many times. And the fat lip. And the cut head. How much evidence does a woman need to present?! She has photos, texts, witnesses, and filed a restraining order… This culture of victim blaming makes me sick. I’m a witness. I’m here. I’m standing up. I can’t take any more of this witch hunt. I was on the f***ing phone when he hit her,” she continued. “I HEARD HER SCREAM. I will testify. Here and in court. Under oath. WHAT ELSE DOES A WOMAN NEED?”
