Amber Heard's Lawyer Denies Claim She's Blackmailing Johnny Depp

Amber Heard‘s lawyer is speaking out to deny the allegations that she is blackmailing her estranged husband Johnny Depp.

Doug Stanhope, a comedian who is one of Johnny‘s friends, wrote a guest column for TheWrap in which he claims that Amber was planning on leaving the actor and threatened “to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms.”

Amber‘s lawyer Peter Sample says the “allegations against Ms. Heard are absolutely and unequivocally false.” The claim that she is blackmailing Johnny “has no basis in reality and is nothing but the typical celebrity muckraking for profit.”

The lawyer also told TheWrap that the claims against Amber are defamatory and “outrageous.”

Johnny Depp Being Blackmailed By Amber Heard, Pal Claims

Johnny Depp‘s friend, comedian Doug Stanhope, claims that the actor’s estranged wife Amber Heard is blackmailing him.

The comic wrote a guest article for TheWrap and says that he was at Johnny‘s house on the day of the alleged assault last weekend.

“We assumed initially that his dour mood was because of his mother’s death the day before. But he opened up in the most vulnerable of ways that it was not only his mother, but that Amber was now going to leave him, threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms,” Doug wrote. “Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified.”

“I knew it was bulls—,” Doug said about Amber‘s claim that she was assaulted by her husband. “We’d watched it build like this since before they were married. We’d watched her manipulate and f— with him for years. We didn’t say a word. To each other, yes, but never to him… My girlfriend, Bingo, and I have known Johnny Depp for a few years now. We have watched Amber Heard f— with him at his weakest — or watched him at his weakest from being f—ed with — for the entire time we’ve known him.”

Doug says that he and other friends of Johnny would not speak up throughout their marriage, but now he doesn’t care if he is cut out of friend’s life for talking publicly.

“Abusing women is bulls—. Johnny doesn’t abuse anyone. And he told me that day ahead of time that she’d pull some kind of s— like this. Johnny Depp got used, manipulated, set up and made to look like an a–hole. And he saw it coming and didn’t or couldn’t do anything to stop it,” Doug said. “He may never talk to me again for saying it but I’d never forgive myself for not coming to his defense out of fear or ego. I stand up for my friends and I tell the f—ing truth.”
