Amber Heard Is Suing Johnny Depp's Friend for Making Blackmail Claim

Amber Heard is suing comedian Doug Stanhope, the friend of Johnny Depp who accused her of blackmailing her husband and lying about the alleged domestic abuse.

The 30-year-old actress is asking for the “maximum possible jury award” and plans to donate whatever she receives to an Arizona-based domestic violence charity.

In the court filing (via People), Amber claims that Doug “orchestrated a plot to write an article, which was published at TheWrap.com, which falsely accuses plaintiff Amber Heard of ‘blackmail’ and other criminal behavior towards her husband, Johnny Depp, from whom she is seeking a divorce.”

Amber says that the claims made by Doug are “completely false and defamatory” and that “tremendous harm” was caused by his statement.

Here is what Amber‘s lawyer said in a statement: “The Complaint alleges that Stanhope is a close friend of Johnny Depp and, as part of a coordinated effort, wrote a highly defamatory article about Ms. Heard, filled with completely false, highly defamatory and very hurtful statements. Ms. Heard seeks the maximum possible jury award.”

Johnny Depp 'Kicked' Amber Heard, According to Alleged Texts

A text message exchange allegedly between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp‘s personal assistant from two years ago has emerged.

According to the messages obtained by ET, the 30-year-old actress wrote back and forth with his assistant, Stephen Deuters, about an incident of physical abuse in May 2014.

“Obviously he has no idea what he did or the extent that he did it. If someone was truly honest with him about how bad it really was, he’d be appalled,” Amber allegedly wrote. “”I’m sad that he doesn’t have a better way to really know the severity of his actions yesterday. Unfortunately for me, I remember in full detail everything that happened.”

Stephen allegedly responded, “He was appalled. When I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it…He’s a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get. He is so very sorry, as he should be.”

“He’s done this many times before,” Amber reportedly wrote back. “Tokyo, the island, London (remember that?!), and I always stay. Always believe he’s going to get better…And then every 3 or so month [sic], I’m in the exact same position.”

The text messages follow new photos of Amber‘s alleged domestic assault injuries.

Amber Heard's Lawyers Defend Her in Lengthy Statement: 'Amber Is the Victim'

Amber Heard‘s legal team, lead attorney Samantha F. Spector and co-counsel Joseph P. Koenig, just released a statement defending her and her actions throughout the past week in her allegations of domestic violence against Johnny Depp.

“As the result of Amber’s decision to decline giving an initial statement to the LAPD, her silence has been used against her by Johnny’s team. Amber did not provide a statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny’s career. Johnny’s team has forced Amber to give a statement to the LAPD to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media. Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny,” the statement, provided to Just Jared, began.

“In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator’s playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain,” the statement continued. “In reality, Amber acted no differently than many victims of domestic violence, who think first of the harm that might come to the abuser, rather than the abuse they have already suffered. Amber can no longer endure the relentless attacks and outright lies launched against her character in the Court of Public Opinion since the tragic events of May 21st. With her statement Amber hopes to give the LAPD the opportunity to conduct an accurate and complete investigation into the events of that evening and before. If that occurs, and the truth is revealed, there is no doubt that Amber’s claims will be substantiated beyond any doubt, and hopefully Johnny will get the help that he so desperately needs.”
