Amanda de Cadenet Sends Messages of Support for Friend Amber Heard After the Actress Claims Husband Johnny Depp Abused Her
In 1994, Depp was arrested after drunkenly trashing a hotel room and fighting with then-girlfriend Kate Moss
Amanda de Cadenet is showing her support for friend Amber Heard.
On Saturday, the British talk show host retweeted several messages of support for Heard from Friday and Saturday. While most of the tweets simply expressed belief in Heard’s claims in paperwork filed Friday that estranged husband Johnny Depp had abused her.
Heard claimed in court documents that were filed on Friday that Depp had thrown a cell phone at her face on Saturday, May 21, resulting in bruising. She submitted a photo of her bruised face as evidence and was seen with what appeared to be marks on her cheek when she appeared in court on Friday.
De Cadenet had previously shared a photo of herself with Heard and model-turned-actress Amber Valletta last Sunday during her birthday party, one day after Heard claimed she was abused by Depp. In the photo, which has since been deleted, Heard is seen smiling but with her hair placed over half of her face.
Depp has his supporters too.
The Walking Dead‘s Laurie Holden tweeted her defense of the actor Friday night.
“I, for one, am going to see Johnny Depp’s new movie,” she wrote. “His personal life is just that. Personal. No one knows the real truth so just zip it.”
In another tweet, she wrote, “To be clear: I am just saying DON’T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. Even a pic might not be telling the whole story….”
Although Depp has not yet directly responded to the abuse allegations, his attorney Laura Wasser claimed on Friday that Heard is making the allegations in order to gain an upper hand in the divorce proceedings and “secure a premature financial resolution.”
Depp has not been charged with domestic violence and LAPD told PEOPLE that they investigated the May 21 incident after receiving a 911 call. At the time, Heard declined to file a police report and the officers did not see “any evidence of a crime” so they did not pursue charges against Depp.
