Julia Fox says Amber Heard was not ‘powerful’ enough to abuse Johnny Depp.
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million over an op-ed she wrote in 2018 in The Washington Post about being abused. The actor was not named, however, he claims that these allegations have negatively impacted his reputation and his career.
Heard then countersued Depp for $100 million, accusing the 58-year-old of creating a “smear campaign” against her.
Now Julia Fox has given her opinion on the case, one of many celebrities to do so.
The actress appeared to write a comment on an Instagram post on 14 May claiming that Heard could simply not have abused Depp because she had no physical or financial power over him.
“Wrong. She never had the power in the relationship to be abusive to him,”
“Did she hit him? Yes. Was it abuse? No. You need to have power to be able to abuse it. She was 25. He clearly was always way more powerful including physically and financially.”
This comment sparked mixed opinions online, with many agreeing with the actress while other described this as ‘ludicrous’, claiming that abuse isn’t solely physical strength over another.
