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.
