Comedian Doug Stanhope claimed that Amber Heard had been threatening to leave Johnny Depp, while she blackmailed to lie about him publicly.
Doug said that she would lie about the actor “in any and every duplicitous way,” if he did not agree to her terms.
According to Daily Mail, amidst the turmoil of this divorce, Doug has now come to the defense of Johnny Depp.
However, the essential question is whether “The Rum Diary” actor had been living in fear for the entire time he was married to Amber.

Earlier this week, Amber filed for the divorce. Since then she had been alleging that she “lived in fear” of her husband of 15 months.
She also said that the actor had been abusive throughout the time they were married.
Doug said that the actor was getting “murdered” on social media after the pictures of Heard with a facial bruise was released. According to Doug, this “murder” was the incident that inspired him to speak out.

The moment he heard the allegations from the actress, the comedian said that he “knew it was bulls***t.”
“We have watched Amber Heard f–k with him at his weakest — or watched him at his weakest from being f–ked with — for the entire time we’ve known him,” he said.
He also said that even after knowing this, he didn’t say a word to Johnny Depp because of the fear getting discarded from the actor’s circle.
After Doug and other friends told the actor about their views, Johnny was “dumbstruck.” The actor was shocked as nobody had ever informed him what they really thought of his 15-month marriage, says Page Six.

“He still pronounced his love for Amber but was presciently aware that she was going to pull off some kind of ruse to f–k him over,” Doug said.
Earlier, the actor’s daughter also defended him along with her mother Vanessa, who also stood up for Johnny.
