Paul Bettany, 45, shocked his followers when he posted a tweet on May 28 that fully defended friend Johnny Depp, 52, against wife Amber Heard‘s claims of abuse. He really doesn’t believe his dear friend could ever do something violent. Wow! Click through to see his tweet!
“known Johnny Depp for years and through several relationships. He’s the sweetest, kindest, gentlest man that I’ve ever known. Just saying,” Paul tweeted. While Paul didn’t name Amber, 30, specifically, or any of the allegations lobbed at Johnny, it’s clear what he’s talking about. Johnny’s the “gentlest man” the Captain America: Civil War actor has ever known? After hearing Amber’s accusations, that’s pretty terrible for Paul!
To Amber, Johnny is apparently anything but sweet, kind or gentle. The Danish Girl actress has secured a temporary restraining order against Johnny until they can go to court. She’s accused Johnny, in legal docs, of substance abuse problems and a violent temper. She’s claimed that Johnny threw an iPhone at her face, grabbed her hair and struck her — and she has photos that show the bruises. “[Johnny is] often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me,” Amber claimed in her legal docs. “Johnny’s paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship. So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse.”

After going public with her accusations, things have been particularly hard for Amber because she’s facing people like Paul who don’t believe her! As a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, she’s upset that people are calling her a liar. “[Amber is] absolutely devastated. Everyone is worried about her, but she’s a very strong woman and has a strong support team,” the source told us. “One thing is for sure, whether these allegations are true or not, she is a very strong woman. To be willing to come out about her pain knowing it could potentially harm her career is commendable.”
