Marilyn Manson Says Pal Johnny Depp Was 'Crucifed Unjustly'

Marilyn Manson Says Pal Johnny Depp Was 'Crucifed Unjustly'

Marilyn Manson is speaking out in defense of his longtime friend Johnny Depp.

The 47-year-old singer opens up about their friendship and references Amber Heard‘s abuse allegations in a new interview.

Lily-Rose is my goddaughter and I was there when [his son] Jack was born, so we go back,” Manson told The Daily Beast. “Johnny is one of the nicest people that I know – to the extent where it’s almost heartbreaking how kind he is to his friends, and everyone around him. I know that he was completely crucified – unjustly.”

Marilyn continued, “I would stand by him on anything. As my friend, I know that he’s handling it the best he can and he’s a great dad, too. It fills me with joy to see his kids grow up and be so smart, and so hilarious. We played a show together not too long ago. It’s hard to say when you talk about your friends. Of course I think that all of it was bullsh-t, and I think that he is a great person. I wouldn’t agree with any of it if someone were to put me on the stand and ask me what I know, or what I’ve witnessed.”

    I don’t know that I would use the word crucified but it surprised me how many out there wanted to think the worst of him without the allegations being proven in a court of law. However I saw a lot of support for him in many of the comments. The public saw through her act and she ended up hurting her own image.

    She tried to crucify him but she lied so badly and so obviously no one believed her.

  • guest

    he wasn’t crucified until the video
    the victim was the one crucified here
    and read the comments here, people still want to believe he’s innocent despite of the many pictures, texts messages, terrifying stories and video
    But Manson is enabler of his addictions. He would never admit Johnny doing wrong because his addictions. Also I don’t know abuser who abuse their partners in front of their pals

  • DorothyfromOz

    You mean the video where she was taping him illegally? Where he abused his cabinets , where he didn’t lay a finger on her just her cell phone. Its not a crime to have a temper, most people call that being a passionate person.

  • Grunge Groupie

    I didn’t see him do anything in that video but get upset and slam some cabinets… I am curious what Amber Heard apologized for that got him so angry.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Johnny Depp is not an abuser. People who think otherwise need to just eff off. Anyone with half a brain can see that scAmber is the liar here & no one else.

  • Kat123

    Lets hope no one ever video tapes you without you knowing when you are having a temper fit.
    He didn’t abuse her in the video in anyway shape or form.
    And let’s not forget SHE dropped the claims and requested the TRO be dropped with prejudice. Meaning she can never make such a claim again.
    If she was abused she wouldn’t have settled. Not after everything she exposed through the media. Clearly it was carefully manipulated to show him in a very very bad, and one sided light and her a meek weak “victim”.

  • Gina

    Well the media & the public at large didn’t crucify him though, they treated him like a king…

  • Mike1288

    Exactly! I don’t know if he is a woman abuser but he clearly likes to drink and from his teeth drugs. People are always quick to make decisions without evidence. I doubt if this was another guy that people would take to his defense so quickly.

  • DorothyfromOz

    His teeth are veneers for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell no tales. He can’t remove them until the movie is released or totally finished.

    AH sold her pictures to People rather than submit them to court as evidence, thus bypassing any meaningful scrutiny. The text messages were not included in the evidence she submitted either, strongly implying that they were not authenticated. The stories are just that – her version of events (which many impartial witnesses including the LAPD contradict). No one ever saw JD abuse her. The video showed nothing to substantiate her claims – JD was not violent; he did not even bad mouth her, let alone lay a hand on her & at no point did she appear fearful. She chose to settle & she withdrew all her allegations & dropped the DV claims ‘with prejudice.’ Had her accusations been valid either she would have taken it to court & fought to obtain the PRO or JD would have agreed to the (exorbitant) financial demands laid out in her original lawyers letter & avoided the whole mess. She fought this in the court of public opinion because she knew that her case would not stand up in an actual court of law.

    The media were consistently pro AH – hardly surprising as she was providing them with countless click bait articles. Many people looked beyond the headlines, at the inconsistencies in AH’s arguments & the way she conducted herself throughout this affair, & drew their own conclusions.

  • Gina

    The media wasn’t pro AH just because she provided them with juicy click bait. Relaying a juicy story is not the same as being pro AH. Know the difference. Also, the media liked to use her bisexuality as some sort of weapon against her.

    Johnny’s’ ties to the powerful in Hollywood, pretty much insulated him the whole time. The story was absent from all major TV shows that supposedly talk about celeb news and he has legions of blind followers who would believe him if he said hid not stab them in the face after he stabbed them in the face. If anyone was crucified it was the woman who dared to say anything bad about him.

    Yet she’s the one who couldn’t control herself and hit her wife in an airport leading to an arrest. Do you think that was the only time Amber hit Tasya?
    As for Depp, people don’t start abusing people at 50. There are signs in previous relationships — a push here, a slap there, isolating their victim — yet all of his exes said he was loving and gentle; and none had anything to gain or lose by coming out for or against him.
    He was cut off from friends and family while Amber had her friends living off of him with keys to their place so they could pop in any time.
    Who was the abuser and who was the abused then?

  • ALittleBitOfSomething

    She drinks (and does drugs) as well only he admits while she denys it.
    The teeth are for a movie. You really think he can’t afford to pay to get his teeth fixed?

  • ALittleBitOfSomething

    Yes, he’s paid off the whole world, even those of us who weren’t fans before this. He went back in time to give her a criminal past and erase his.
    Or maybe, just maybe, some of us followed the timeline and saw Ambers’ lies and changing stories and moving here-today-gone-tomorrow bruise and realized she’s the one with all the signs of an abuser and he’s the one who had been abused.

  • Bobbi Baker

    I never believed her allegations for a second. I’ve followed Johnny’s career since Benny + Joon, and I know he’s no saint. If you told me he was screwing around, I’d believe it. If you told me he needed rehab, I’d believe it. But a woman beater– no way. He grew up with a mother and two sisters he adored. He just isn’t that kind of person. (I still can’t get over the way Amber filed for divorce mere days after his “best friend,” his mom Betty Sue, died. Amber knew how to hurt him and she went for it.) Both Jennifer Grey and Winona Ryder have said of him “he was the love of my life,” and he’s still friends with his first wife Lori Allison and the mother of his children Vanessa Paradis. I don’t know if he’s still in touch with Sherilyn Fenn, but she was one of his many defenders. Now that he can begin to heal, I’m kind of hoping he and Winona run into each other somewhere and start talking about what might still be…
