Doug Stanhope Says Johnny Depp Thanked Him for Defense Against Amber Heard's Claims

Johnny Depp‘s friend Doug Stanhope, who wrote an open letter defending the actor against Amber Heard‘s claims of domestic violence, is opening up about the reaction to his article.

Amber and her team have filed a defamation lawsuit against Doug as he claimed that she is blackmailing her husband.

“Anything that I say, they can twist my words,” Doug said on The Howard Stern Show. “It’s such a bulls–t suit.”

Doug also talked about how the article he wrote ended up going viral and how words were put in his mouth.

“I put it on my website. The title was ‘At a Loss for Words’ … whatever it was. TheWrap got it as an exclusive, however that worked, and said, ‘Amber Heard Is Blackmailing Johnny Depp — This Is How I Know.’ I didn’t write that f–king title. I didn’t put that stupid tabloid title in there. I’m a better writer than that, so I don’t know if it’s hinged on that, I don’t know how much of it is spite,” Doug said.

“I had no contact with [Johnny] until he texted me after that went out and said, ‘Hey, thanks for being honest.’ He didn’t know that was going out. I was a little petrified because it kind of made him look like a bi—. ‘Cause he was kind of a bi—,” Doug added.

    such a stupid attention-grabbing sheep he is and now the blame is on the wrap? good, amber’s lawyer will be happy to know he can put the lawsuit in a bigger and richer target
    he should shut up unless he was a part at any of their fights

  • atpo

    Yes,the blame is on the wrap for the misleading title.I bet Amber is on cloud nine!Boy,isn’t she sue happy!Lol she won’t win the lawsuit anyway.Defamation cases are very complicated.If Johnny say that he told him all these the case is dropped instantly.Speaking for attention grabbing sheep,iO and the rest of Amber’s free loading friends come to mind.They should also shut up cause they speak like parrots what Amber told them to.Hearing an argument over the phone doesn’t make you a witness.Johnny’s friends must keep their mouths shut but Amber’s can talk all day and leak stories to the tabloids.Sounds fair,

    She won’t win money from either Doug Stanhope or TheWrap. He only wrote an article citing what his friend told him, its not hearsay or gossip. There is such a thing as free speech. What’s next with her, she’s going to start suing people who post comments that don’t support her?

  • VanityInsecurity

    Thank you Mr. Stanhope. For the truth & for sticking up for a friend.

  • lolo

    Wow- a b*tch? Can you be more of a sexist asshole than this disgusting piece of dog poop? This is the most embarrassing thing I have ever heard. This guy is a loooooooooooooser. #liar #desperate

    No, what’s happening ‘next’ is what we see… nothing.
    They’re both going to their respective corners and cooling off, or at least she is. And it’s about time. Is she not aware that while he may love her, she’s not all that? And as someone who apparently might have premeditated this marriage that could be proven? But what’s worse is hitting him at his emotional lowest, which is, believe it or not, abuse. He’s the victim not her. I don’t know about who tossed the phone, whatever, but the only ‘evidence’ I’ve come across is how cold she was when he lost his mother.

  • GFW

    From what I’m seeing is he’s being the gentleman in this. I think he cared, still does, tremendously but could be shocked, and hurt obviously, by the press about it all. He comes across as a private guy.

  • Dorothyfromoz

    Clearly you haven’t read her latest claim which of course came from “sources close to” according to stated source he got really upset when she accused I’m of cheating. FRom what I have read on other gossip sites se was probably the one cheating with a woman. Apparently she was a lesbian when they first met but I guess she decided she was bi ?

  • GFW

    … for the love of money, yes.

  • MyName

    I believe I remember your username from the article prior to their marriage. If you’re the same one,I bet you now regret posting in favor of their marriage and replying negativity to posters who didn’t.
    Thank goodness they didn’t have any children together.

    He said ‘He’ not ‘She’.

  • lolo

    Yes that is the point.
