Amber Heard’s Lawyer: Johnny Depp Using Media to Spread ‘False and Malicious Allegations’
[link to www.breitbart.com]

An attorney for Amber Heard says the actress will give a full statement to the Los Angeles Police Department about the repeated physical abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of husband Johnny Depp, and said she initially did not file a police report about a recent alleged domestic violence incident in order to protect both her privacy and Depp’s career.

Heard, 30 alleged last week that the 52-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star repeatedly physically abused her during their 15-month marriage, and that he struck her in the face with a cell phone during a violent altercation on Saturday night. But police arriving at the couple’s residence that night reportedly saw no evidence of injuries to Heard, and the actress declined to file a police report.

The Rum Diary actress filed for divorce from Depp earlier this month.

“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,” Spector said in astatement provided to the Independent. “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,” Heard’s attorney added. “Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny. In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator’s playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain.”

Depp’s team has vehemently denied that the actor abused Heard, with the actor’s high-powered attorney, Laura Wasser, flatly stating last week that the actressinvented the abuse claims to gain a financial upper hand in divorce proceedings.

Depp’s former romantic partners, Vanessa Paradis and Lori Anne Allison, have each released separate statements claiming that Depp never physically abused them throughout their relationships. On Monday, the actor’s friend Doug Stanhope alleged that Heard is attempting to blackmail the actor with the abuse allegations.
