- Advertisment -

Rachel Riley has said that she ‘wouldn’t wish’ Johnny Depp on her ‘worst enemy’ as she shared a Twitter thread which called the actor ‘problematic’ on Wednesday.

The Countdown star, 36, retweeted the post, which outlined claims about Johnny’s past, including his comments about disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.

It also mentioned his friendship with Marylin Manson, who was hit with allegations of physical and sexual abuse by ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood and several other women in early 2021.

The Twitter thread also alleged that ‘Johnny groomed Winona Rider when she was 17 and he was nearing 30’ and claimed the actor had a ‘history of homophobia’. 

Rachel then shared another tweet from domestic abuse researcher Emma Katz, which included a link to an article from the National Domestic Violence Hotline in the US, titled ‘The Myth of Mutual Abuse’.

The piece said: ‘Many times, we speak with survivors of abuse who want to address concerns they have about their own behaviors.

‘They will often express that their relationship is mutually abusive, a concept used when describing a relationship where both partners are abusive towards one another.

‘Abuse is about an imbalance of power and control. 

‘In an unhealthy or abusive relationship, there may be unhealthy behaviors from both/all partners, but in an abusive relationship, one person tends to have more control than the other.’

One user praised the presenter, saying: ‘You are very brave to post this – I see the baying mob of Depp obsessives and plain old misogynists have already started in. Thank you for speaking out.’

However not everyone agreed.

Another comment said: ‘Have you looked into the facts or actually watched the trial? Johnny is no angel but it seems Amber was the abuser in this case.’

‘Whilst his alledged actions can’t be condoned I can’t believe your siding with a person who has been recorded admitting the domestically abused someone,’ one other user added. 

Johnny is suing his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, for $50million for defamation over her 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post, in which she spoke about being a victim of domestic abuse.

Aquaman star Amber has countersued for $100million and the court case has captured attention over the last few weeks, with Amber alleging she was beaten and threatened by her husband.

Johnny has denied his ex-wife’s allegations of abusive behaviour and recently declared in court he has lost ‘nothing less than everything’ as a result of the claims.

Asked what he has lost following the publication of Amber’s essay, he said: ‘Nothing less than everything.

‘When the allegations were made [and] rapidly circling the globe, telling people I was a drunken cocaine-fuelled menace who beat women – suddenly in my 50s – it’s over. You’re done.

‘So what did it do to me? What effect did it have on me? I put it to you this way, no matter the outcome of this trial, the second the allegations were made against me, the accusations, the second that more and more metastasized and turned into fodder for the media, once that happened, I lost then.’

The Edward Scissorhands actor also said that he believes the allegations will follow him forever because of the high profile nature of the case.

He added: ‘That is to say, I lost because that is not a thing that anyone is just going to put on your back for a short period of time. I will live with that for the rest of my life because of the allegations and because it was such a high profile case.

‘So I lost then, no matter the outcome of this trial. I’ll carry that for the rest of my days. It never had to be that way. It never had to happen, and I don’t quite understand why it did in the way that it did.’

Elsewhere in the court case, Amber testified she fought ‘really hard’ to stay in the Aquaman sequel when scenes from the movie were axed and ‘communication stopped’ with the producers after Johnny’s team depicted her abuse allegations as a ‘hoax’. 

She said she has been labelled a ‘liar’ during the $100million defamation trial because Johnny, 58, is the ‘bigger star’ and had ‘more publicity reach’.

Amber told the courtroom in Virginia that the ‘sophisticated PR machine’ behind Johnny had worked to label her as a liar in the media – which has impacted her career.

Her testimony was supported by her talent agent, Jessica Kovacevic, who on Thursday claimed the actress’s rise to fame was diminished due to the allegations made by Johnny’s attorney claiming she faked her injuries.

Kovacevic claimed Amber was set to earn $2million for Aquaman 2, but Warner Bros. decided to diminish her role, citing a ‘lack of chemistry’ between Amber and Aquaman star Jason Momoa. 

Kovacevic said its unlikely for a star involved in a movie as successful as Aquaman to not have their career take off.

Aquaman was DC’s most successful movie, grossing $940.7million, with Kovacevic saying Amber should have seen a similar, albeit smaller, rise to fame like her co-star, Jason Momoa.

Kovacevic claimed Amber’s stardom was dimmed due to the allegations made by Johnny’s attorney, Adam Waldman, who claimed Amber had faked her injuries and the damages to Depp’s Los Angeles penthouse.

Amber testified on Monday: ‘I fought really hard to stay in the movie [Aquaman 2]. They didn’t want to include me in the film.’

‘I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it. That depicted by character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another.

‘They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch.’

She added on Tuesday: ‘I don’t know if I will even be in the final cut or how much I will be. It was difficult to stay in the movie.’

Asked about what work she has done since Depp’s legal team referred to her claims of sexual violence as a hoax, she said: ‘I have done one small independent film.’

Johnny has said that it was his connections in Hollywood that helped Amber land the role on Aquaman, with Amber claiming that she got the job on her own. 

Her comments come after a petition calling for DC Warner Bros to drop Amber from the role of Aquaman 2 reached 4.2million signatures.

Amber earlier admitted that she had not given $3.5million from her divorce settlement with Depp to charity – despite telling the UK’s High Court she had.

She told the court she had ‘not been able to fulfil those obligations yet…because Johnny sued me for $50million in March 2019’.

Johnny’s lawyer asked her if she had announced the donation because she wanted ‘praise’ and ‘good press’.

She replied: ‘That wasn’t my interest. My interest is in my name – in clearing my name. At the time, I was being called a ‘liar’ and my motives were being questioned. I did see it as important to clear that up.’

She added: ‘I wanted to make a statement to make sure there was not any doubt. That I couldn’t be labelled these things just because Johnny was the bigger star and had more publicity reach.’
