Johnny Depp Says He 'Felt Bad' That J.K. Rowling Had to Defend Him

Johnny Depp is speaking out about the fact that J.K. Rowling, the author of the “Harry Potter” series, had to defend his involvement in the Fantastic Beasts movies after domestic violence allegations surfaced.

:I’ll be honest with you, I felt bad for J.K. having to field all these various feelings from people out there” he told EW. “I felt bad that she had to take that. But ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused, which is why I’m suing the Sun newspaper for defamation for repeating false accusations. J.K. has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused, and that’s why she has publicly supported me. She doesn’t take things lightly. She would not stand up if she didn’t know the truth. So that’s really it.”

If you missed it, read J.K.‘s full statement about keeping Johnny involved in the films, despite the allegations against him by ex wife Amber Heard. Amber and Johnny settled out of court after the allegations.

    A gentleman who’s been accused so wrongly and viciously would of course feel bad, as if it was his fault. I’m glad JK got wise to Amber’s fake claims against Johnny. The evidence coming out and going public next month will be highly satisfying. #IBelieveHim #JohnnyDeppIsInnocent #amberheardADMITTED

    Heard settled out of court. because there was no real evidence. A photo and friends who said that she said …. that is no evidence, The police saw nothing and people in the house did not see a bruise or swelling.

    The truth will all come out in a court of law next month and her supporters will claim the court was paid off. Everyone believes what they want to believe. I believe J.K. and Johnny. You have to look at the facts. AH lied.
