She also urged Depp to stay strong and reminded him that they will always love him and the best is yet to come for the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Meanwhile, a different netizen said he hoped he were rich because he wanted to purchase the note Depp wrote.
“I want to buy it and frame it on my wall. So everytime I’ll be lost or feels down, I’ll look at it and be reminded that – no matter how bad things get if you’re good, things will come around eventually,” Rusdy Roman wrote.
Supporting statements for Johnny Depp
Meanwhile, Stephen Deuters, Johnny Depp’s former personal assistant, released a statement supporting the Fantastic Beast actor. According to him, Amber Heard is the real abuser because when he was still his personal assistant she never mentioned any physical abuse. Also, he never saw any evidence of injury.
“I knew that Ms. Heard was the abuser in the relationship and I was appalled that she would behave in this way,” Deuters said in a statement obtained by Page Six.
“At no point did Ms. Heard ever mention any physical abuse and I never saw evidence of any injury to Ms. Heard. In contrast, Mr. Depp told me on multiple occasions that Ms. Heard had attacked him or abused him physically and verbally.”
Heard admits that she hit Depp in an audio recording that leaked earlier this year.
However, Heard’s makeup artist Melanie Inglessis also supported her claims that Depp hit her. Inglessis said she saw Heard’s injuries when she was about to appear on The Late Show With James Corden.
Inglessis stated in her declaration in 2019 obtained by The Hollywood Reporter that Heard did not want to expose that part of her life to the public. In fact, she reportedly considered canceling her appearance on the show altogether.
