No person is safe from domestic violence, and it doesn’t matter if you’re rich and famous. The topic is being discussed in the wake of the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation case where the former couple is suing each other.
Since the breakdown of Depp and Heard’s relationship, they’ve been throwing domestic abuse allegations at each other. However, Amber’s testimony that she is a domestic violence victim of Johnny doesn’t add up. Body Language expert, Derek Van Schaik, analyzed interview footage of the pair and found that Heard’s narrative via her body language doesn’t comply.
Throughout the interview, she eats chocolate to give herself time to come up with an answer. Meanwhile, Johnny’s interview is more on point and coherent. He answers the questions without hesitation.
Two of Johnny’s ex-partners, Winona Ryder and the mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis, have both said that he was never violent towards them. This is further backed up by several witnesses who were called to testify against Amber. Not one person saw Amber with bruises on her face.
Not to mention, Emily Smith reporting for the New York Post via news.com.au, has alleged that. In addition, Eve Barlow, a friend of Amber’s, “was thrown out of the courtroom” for interfering and being disrespectful. She has since been banned permanently from the trial. What’s more, she was also part of creating fake evidence by claiming a tweet from a witness from Depp’s side of the defence was recent when it was actually tweeted in 2021.
Johnny is suing Amber over an op-ed she wrote indirectly about him and being a survivor of domestic violence for the Washington Post. After the piece was published, Disney dropped the actor from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Warner Brothers fired him from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and recast his character, Gellert Grindelwald, with Mads Mikkelsen.
What’s more, the world naturally assumes that domestic violence is a women’s only thing. It is not. There are a few stories of male victims. One such example is when Katherine Knight, an Australian woman, killed her husband, cut him up, and planned to feed parts of his corpse to his children, as per 7News Australia’s Duncan McNab.
According to the NCADV, in America, one in seven women and one in twenty-four men experience some form of Domestic Violence.
As Dr Shannon Curry has proved during the Depp v. Heard defamation case, as per LADBible, Amber has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Histrionic Personality Disorder. In other words, she is a narcissist.
