Johnny Depp is embroiled in a legal battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Sia publicly supports the Pirates of the Caribbean star by announcing that he is the victim.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce was finalized in 2017. But three years later, the exes are still in a legal battle, and Sia takes Depp’s side.
Johnny Depp is innocent for Sia
Sia voices her public support for Johnny Depp amid his legal battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard, NME reported. The Chandelier singer was convinced that Depp is innocent due to the tape recording of Heard admitting that she hit Depp. The recording leaked earlier this year.
“Just showing my public support for Johnny Depp,” Sia tweeted.
“I mean, I’d love him to get clean and stop with the jewellery, but he is clearly the victim after hearing those tapes.”
Depp’s exes support her
Aside from Sia, several fans support Johnny Depp in his legal battle against Amber. Even his exes Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder backed Depp from his ex-wife’s allegations. Both said that Depp never hurt them when they were with him.
“Through all these years I’ve known Johnny to be a kind, attentive, generous, and non-violent person and father,” Paradis said. “He was never violent or abusive to me.”
Just like Paradis, Ryder, who was engaged to Depp in the early 90s, didn’t experience any violence or abuse from Depp.
“I cannot wrap my head around (Ms Heard’s) accusations,” Ryder said in her statement. “He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me.”
J.K. Rowling supports JD too
The author of Harry Potter also supports Johnny Depp. J.K. Rowling received an intense backlash when she decided to cast Depp in Fantastic Beasts. But she never backed down and stood by her decision to make the actor part of the movie.
Rowling said she was “genuinely happy” to cast Depp. However, due to her decision, several campaigned to cancel Rowling with some urging the others to not support her books and movies.
Amber Heard allegations against Depp
Amber Heard alleged that Johnny Depp was violent and abusive. She had photos of herself with bruises claiming that Depp caused it during a fight.
She also claimed that The Tourist star was uncomfortable with her doing nudes and even controlled her appearance.
However, earlier this year, an audio recording of Heard confessing that she hit Johnny Depp leaked. She even taunted him to tell the world that he is the victim and see if the world will believe him. The leaked recording changed the narrative of the exes’ divorce story.
Many slammed Depp for allegedly hurting Heard. Disney even dropped him from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. But due to the recording, many started to support Depp.
