Johnny Depp’s Ex-Wife Comes Forward In His Defense, Says He’s Not A Violent Person

More people are coming forward about Johnny Depp after Amber Heard‘s allegations continue to reverberate.

This time it’s Lori Anne Allison, a woman who was married to Depp from 1983 to 1985, claiming that she doesn’t believe Heard’s allegations about domestic violence!

Speaking to reports, Lori apparently does not believe that Amber is telling the truth about the domestic violence, citing the fact that during her own three-year marriage to Depp, he never hit or beat her.

Allison goes a step further, calling Johnny a ‘soft person’ kind to animals, and saying that he never even screamed at her.

Allison and Depp connected recently — they still speak often, apparently — when she offered him condolences over his mother’s recent death.

Johnny Depp’s Lawyer Alleges Amber Heard’s Anger At ‘Negative Media Attention’ Is Driving Abuse Claims!

Whoa!!!

They are NOT afraid to call Amber Heard out, alleging she’s in it for the money — and that her anger, rather than the facts, is driving the proceedings!

Johnny Depp‘s lawyer, Laura Wasser, is not holding back about how she sees Heard’s allegations, alleging in new court papers that the domestic abuse claims are a bunch of bunk — and just a money grab!

Wasser didn’t hold back in her response to Heard’s allegations, as we’ve noted previously, but the high-powered divorce attorney added a piece to the puzzle, too, saying:

“Her current application for a temporary restraining order along with her financial requests appears to be in response to the negative media attention she received earlier this week after filing for divorce. Yet Johnny cannot protect himself or Amber from media scrutiny, and Amber’s anger certainly cannot drive this dissolution proceeding.”

Wow!!!

That is a VERY strongly-worded reaction to Heard’s claims, and it pretty much all comes down to a false accusation, and it is NOT a good look for Amber!

Crazy!!!

UPDATE: Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Divorce Details – Domestic Violence, Restraining Orders… Yikes!

Johnny-Depp-Amber-Heard-Divorce

After only a day since being announced the divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard rumors have been running rampant. Here is what ShowbizSpy knows for sure so far…

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard met while filming The Rum Diary movie, and then began dating seriously in 2012. The couple became officially engaged in 2014, and then went on to marry in 2015. The couple that is 22 years apart in age held two weddings. They first tied the knot in a civil ceremony in Los Angeles, and then had a larger affair on Depp’s private island in the Bahamas surrounded by some very close friends of the power celeb.

In a Marie Claire interview published just last November, Heard hit back at claims of marital strife, and called becoming a stepparent to Depp’s two children “one of the best gifts” she had received”. Still, their first year of marriage was not without some major drama. The now “former” couple infamously had a dust-up with the Australian government after bringing their two dogs into the country without proper documentation and quarantining, despite knowing the laws in place.

Though she faced up to 10 years in prison for the alleged dog smuggling scandal, Heard said last December she would plead not guilty. That changed this past April, with she and Depp filming a formal apology video, at the request of the government to drop charges and create public awareness. Now just weeks later, and 15 months after they wed, she has filed for divorce siting irreconcilable differences.

Heard’s petition, which was filed in L.A. where they had legally married on Monday, had a separation date of May 22 listed on the documents, the same day Depp attended the premiere of his new movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass. The legal document also notes they had no prenuptial agreement, and further calls for a very large spousal support amount to continue.

Depp filed his own divorce papers in response to Heard’s petition, and asked that her request for spousal support be denied due to the short term of the marriage. Depp’s camp is putting the blame of the divorce on Amber and her “alleged” inability to get along with his family, specifically being claimed that Heard did not mesh with Depp’s two kids, his mother, and his two sisters. There was rumors mentioned several times, that even though in the public Amber was saying she was so pleased to help take care of the kids, in private she did not want to lift a finger to help. Depp’s mom had said before she passed away that the “witch” was using her son for fame and riches, and had no true love for her son.

An official statement from Depp’s rep said: “Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”

By the rep mentioning “Dissolution of marriage” and the fact that Depp’s attorneys are requesting that he pays nothing in spousal support, it looks as though Depp realizes his mistake and is going to do everything in his power to not get screwed by the California court system that has been known to “give away the farm” to gold diggers. Not saying Amber is one, but by requesting such a large amount after only a short time together is appears that way.

Depp and Heard have been radio silent to this point under the direction of their attorneys.

Amber is also claiming that Depp was very abusive in the relationship, and has now filed a restraining order. Her attorneys recently posted photos of her supposedly getting her ass kicked by Depp to People Magazine:

We have no idea what side to take here, we have loved Johnny for many many years and thought the entire relationship with Amber was a bit weird. We just don’t know what to say yet. What do you guys think about this mess? Let us know in the comments below.

Rainn Wilson On Johnny Depp: “Captain Jack Sparrow Is A Wife Beater”

Rainn Wilson called Johnny Depp a “wife beater” on Twitter on Friday, hours after Depp’s estranged wife Amber Heard accused him of domestic violence.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Heard won a temporary restraining order earlier Friday after alleging Depp was verbally and physically abusive throughout their 15-month marriage. She specifically claimed he assaulted her last Saturday, two days before she filed for divorce, as well as during an incident last month. In both instances, Heard alleged the actor was drunk and high when he became violent with her.

An attorney for Depp, who is currently out of the country, responded to Heard’s declaration with a filing accusing her of using the allegations to get “premature” financial assistance before the details of their divorce are worked out. The lawyer further suggested Heard was using the claims to change the public discourse surrounding the couple’s split. And that discourse has dominated Twitter, where Depp’s name has been a trending topic for much of the day.

While most people tweeting about the situation are everyday Twitter users offering opinions and fans weighing in, Wilson so far is one of the few celebrities, if not the only, to make a social media remark. He tweeted, “Here’s what I learned today: there’s a 100% antibiotic resistant bacteria, bees killed a hiker, Cpt Jack Sparrow is a wife beater.”

Jack Sparrow, of course, is the name of Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean character. And while the movie star’s new film Alice Through The Looking Glass opened on Friday, another Pirates sequel is in post-production. Wilson’s tweet sparked a range of responses.

“The ACTOR that played Jack Sparrow is a wife beater. Jack Sparrow himself seems in pretty good shape – for a pirate,” one person replied. Another cracked, “Careful now Rainn, I think you meant ‘allegedly.’ Those bees can be awfully litigious.” And another expressed, “..what…what…do we know this or is it just speculation. I hope the latter.”

Depp has not personally commented on the allegations. He’s currently in Portugal, where he played a concert with his band Hollywood Vampires on Friday night.

Blake Shelton performed “Savior’s Shadow” on the 2016 “Red Nose Day Special” on Thursday. Watch below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the “Red Nose Day Special” is a telethon that raises money for and awareness of children living in poverty in the U.S. and around the globe. While Red Nose Day began in the U.K. 25 years ago, the campaign is only in its second year here in America. And NBC is once again hosting the star-studded TV broadcast.

In addition to Shelton’s performance, longtime Red Nose Day supporter Elton John also signed on to provide musical entertainment. Along with Paul Shaffer’s “Red Nose Orchestra,” they added to the special’s blend of music, comedy and short films spotlighting communities and kids in need. And Shelton opted to sing the moving “Savior’s Shadow,” an inspirational song from his new album, If I’m Honest.

The record came out last Friday, and Shelton has been making a number of appearances to promote it. He was featured on the “Today” show twice in the last week, as well as on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The country superstar also performed one of the new tracks on “The Voice” season finale on Tuesday.

Nick Jonas has released the trailer for his upcoming documentary series that will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at his new album Last Year Was Complicated. Watch the first preview below!

“This album has been my most personal & I wanted a way to share the process with you sonically + visually,” Jonas tweeted on Thursday along with the trailer for his documentary. The series will feature candid interviews with Jonas, as well as backstage footage from his concerts, music videos, recording studio and more.

In the preview, Jonas says, “I could fall flat on my face with this album… Falling flat on my face would be fine, because I know I made something I’m really proud of.” In March, Jonas revealed his latest album’s title, cover art, and track list in a series of tweets. Hours later, the singer released the album’s first single, “Close,” featuring Tove Lo, which he has since performed on “Saturday Night Live” and the Billboard Music Awards. Jonas has also recently put out the singles, “Champagne Problems” and “Chainsaw.”

The singer’s latest album drops on June 10. Check out the teaser trailer below for Jonas’ “Last Year Was Complicated: The Documentary Series,” which will be available to stream on Tidal starting June 1.

Donald Trump ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Video 2016 – Watch Full Interview!

Donald Trump Jimmy Kimmel Video 2016

(ABC)

Donald Trump appeared on Wednesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to discuss his ongoing campaign for president, as well as Kimmel’s own (pretend) run for vice president. Check out the video below!

Trump last appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel” in December, discussing everything from the Republican debates to his stance on Muslims and immigration. In the time since, Kimmel has devoted a substantial amount of his show to mocking the GOP frontrunner, and has even repeatedly used him as the inspiration for “Lie Witness News” bits, including a new one on Wednesday. Still, Trump agreed to come back on the late-night show, probably in part because the California primary is less than two weeks away.

In his opening monologue, Kimmel said of Trump being the episode’s guest, “Tonight, those of you watching at home will have the rare opportunity to see Donald Trump on television. Trump is here in Hollywood, and I thought this was interesting — he has promised to make Hollywood Boulevard great again, by building a wall around Bill Cosby’s star on the Walk of Fame. And Guillermo is gonna pay for it!”

When Trump eventually came out, the two discussed the presumptive nominee’s Democratic rivals, the nicknames he gives his opponents, and plans to pick a running mate. Kimmel also read aloud Winners Still Aren’t Losers, the sequel to the (mock) children’s book, Winners Aren’t Losers. The TV host amusingly ghost-wrote both installments on Trump’s behalf.

Trump taped his new “Kimmel” appearance earlier Wednesday, and a small protest actually formed outside the show’s Hollywood studio, where the detractors shouted negative comments about the mogul, and even complained about Kimmel having him as a guest. Strikingly, though, the show’s musical guests, The Weeknd and Belly, canceled their performance, citing they didn’t want to share the same stage as Trump. Gossip Cop has video of the full interview below!
