Jenna Dewan & Amber Heard Spotted In London

Amber Heard swears it isn’t about blackmail.

The actress denies that she is blackmailing ex husband Johnny Depp or lying in her claims about domestic abuse, in a letter to TheWrap from her lawyer on Monday. It’s a shame that she even needs to write the letter- our outlook around domestic abuse is so skewed. The Wrap reports:

The “allegations against Ms. Heard are absolutely and unequivocally false,” said Peter Sample, a lawyer for Heard. The letter said that the claim of blackmail by Depp’s friend Doug Stanhope “has no basis in reality and is nothing but the typical celebrity muckraking for profit.”

Sample demanded a retraction of the article, calling the claim defamatory and “outrageous.” TheWrap will respond to the letter through its legal counsel.

Stanhope, a friend of Depp, published a guest column in TheWrap this weekend in which he said Depp was being falsely accused of physical abuse and instead was being manipulated by Heard, who was “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.”

This comment sparked the denial by Heard’s lawyer, who wrote: “It is highly offensive and disturbing that you would choose to publish it in the first place.” TheWrap reached out to Heard’s publicists for comment on Sunday when Stanhope’s guest column was published, but received no response.

A lawyer for Depp has denied that he was physically abusive to Heard…but really hate people doubting victims of domestic abuse. If she had gotten robbed and had evidence that this was so, would be choose to question Amber? Why so then do we always seem to want to discover if a domestic abuse allegation is “false” or “true?” It’s hard enough coming out as a victim.

What do YOU think?

I think Amber is disgusting. He couldn’t trust her whatsoever, because she cheated on him over and over. I feel sorry for him, & I’m not even a fan.

Why do you assume she is the victim? Because she said so? Perhaps he is the victim of her lying.
