When It’s Time To Stay Silent

8 Jun

I’m sure that many of you have seen this already, but it was sent directly to me from the author Elizabeth Cline, and it needs to be posted, seen, and seen again. I am truly glad to see some of those close to Johnny Depp speaking out.

You see….I believe from what I have seen, and read over the years about Johnny, that domestic violence is not a part of his nature. If we take into account the numerous things that have been said about the content of his character over 30 years, it’s impossible to believe he harmed anyone.

Actions speak louder than words, but words carry weight as well. No one, NO ONE has ever came forward in the past to give any indication Johnny Depp is, or was violent.

I am honored she has sent this to me for posting. I am also pleased to see his friends taking a stand, and communicating to the masses, denouncing the assassination of his character, and giving an accurate account of Johnny’s disposition.

A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.’

When It’s Time To Stay Silent

Johnny Depp and his camp have only released the one official statement that has now been read by half the globe;
“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.”

Throughout the past weeks though Amber Heard and her camp have gone headline crazy with accusations, stories, so called evidence and deranged off the wall accounts of a person that no one would recognize as the Johnny Depp that anyone knows. So the question hangs in the air, why does Johnny and his people continue to let the internet and publications throw around all this dirt and stay quiet? The answer is simple, “Give her enough rope and she’ll hang herself.”

The one thing that can be said no matter how much is true on Amber’s fairytale of the past two years is that she reached above her head and climbed up the ladder. An actress who had no great prospects before her film with Johnny, “Rum Diary”. No matter how stunning she may be, Los Angeles is filled with beautiful women who want to be famous. The chance to be the center of THE Johnny Depp’s attention for any amount of time gave her the cracked door that any woman dreams of. This was her chance and she knew it. “With a little bit of faith, trust and pixie dust” she hit the jackpot. Her intentions are hidden to us and so all her forethought planning can’t be known. The only thing we CAN know is that unfortunately for Amber there is a little invention called the internet. The internet, a place where our past can’t be hidden and neither can a person’s life on social media.

So while Johnny goes into his self-healing regrouping with his circle of friends, he leaves Amber and her minions to slowly peel off the layers of her life and her imaginary “nightmare” of being Mrs. Depp. Every day she, her friends and her camp embarrass her more and more all over the public realm. Johnny stays silent while his friends, family and employees speak volumes for him. It may be because she’s new to the public eye and Johnny is a seasoned famous figure who has been known worldwide half his life or she’s just the mentally unstable female. It could be said that inexperience caused a rookie mistake on her part. There have been theories about her stalking Johnny when she was young and even if that isn’t true, one has to wonder if she wasn’t paying attention at all during her time with him.

Did she not notice his huge fan base or his lifetime circle of supporters and friends? Was she oblivious to his esteemed reputation? Of course she was, which is why she tried to pull him away from anyone close to him and why she stayed so close to him while he was working. The ingenuity ended there however; Amber must not have thought far enough ahead to realize what she was dealing with throwing out such outlandish allegations. Doctored photos and heat of the moment screaming into a phone doesn’t paint a full picture of a person’s demeanor. The brushstroke of guile doesn’t equal a masterpiece of art. Mid-life crises or not, an infallible point of time unfortunately has befallen this great gift of talent and it will pass. He isn’t scared or stupid; he isn’t depressed or intimidated trust that. Johnny is sagacious and shrewd. He folds his arms quietly and sits back to watch the train wreck. Just like the traffic on the 101, everyone will slow down to gape and stare while at the same time wishing they could just unsee it and look away.

The rope goes thicker and longer and steps can now be heard leading up to the hangman’s noose, not unlike in “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Since this is the REAL world and not the movie set, there will be no dashing pirates launching a last minute escape here for Amber Heard.

    Well put. Happy Birthday Johnny…

    I am soooo hoping Johnny comes out victorious and Amber gets Squat. Kudos to him for showing patience.

    Really strong and well crafted piece …. go team Johnny !!

  5. Tgirl June 9, 2016 at 5:29 am #

    Well said and beautifully written.

    She thought she could play the victim and instantly win the pubic sympathy but she is the one looking like a fool now. Johnny and his team know exactly what they are doing. Bravo to them.

    Like I always say karma will catch up with you and win every time.

    Well stated.

    I hope he has down time to grieve his mothers passing. So much has come his way at lightning speed in a very short span. He’s always been a class act, we of course send thoughts of health and well being to him and his family members and for a favorable outcome.

    Happy Birthday Johnny, put your feet up and let the world be kind to you today:)

    I hope he prevails over this smear campaign but his judgment of innocence needs to be just as public as her damaging allegations. No time to be the nice guy, Johnny. And I am concerned to see the cloth around his wrist again.

    • Liz June 9, 2016 at 9:23 am #

      why that’s a keepsake from his daughter I believe.

      • Nobody June 9, 2016 at 12:33 pm #

        Good news if so. I was worried it was being used as a sort of bandage.

  8. Jaj Latty June 9, 2016 at 8:11 am #

    Happy birthday Johnny! This too shall pass!!!

  9. Liz June 9, 2016 at 9:23 am #

    This piece is fantastic but I hadn’t seen it anywhere else! Hope it makes the rounds!!! It goes exactly to what I’ve been saying, Amber Heard ALWAYS underestimates her audience. Reason # 162 why she is a shitty actress! LMAO

    Nicely written. ..no slaughter. I really hope that Johnny has it together but it’s hard sometimes to believe as he spent 4 to 5 years with this narcissistic sociopath. If he was as smart and self aware as the author is claiming, he would have figured her out while filming ‘rum diary ‘ or when she was setting him up by wearing his clothing, calling the paps and planting stories of their secret relationship. And if not then when they were on tour together getting him to go against what he hasn’t done his whole career. . Fault his children and his life to the public…he did this for her.

    We all predicted that he would wake-up and dump her after each dramatic horrific public mess but he went ahead and married her…on the island he had special and private moments with his family, friends and children. She could have been married anywhere in the world but she chose the island …why to show his children, family and friends as well as us that she was the one and only. We still watched in disbelief, wondering when this was going to end, knowing it would end horribly. But still it continued.

    Now it’s seems to be coming to an end but until he actually dumps and we don’t see them together for at least a year, I will still be waiting for her to somehow patch it up with the help of her daddy. Some how convincing Johnny it was a mistake that they belong together. I truly hope she has someone else in her sights cause she has some sick hold on Johnny.

    Good luck Johnny!

      And happy birthday. ..I’m sure you won’t forget this birthday for a very long time if ever and wishing you all the best in the weeks to come and hoping your next birthday will be a more joyous and peaceful birthday…take care.

      And he sold his beloved yacht (Vajoliroja) to please her, and had his property in France on the market with all of their belongings still there. I don’t know if a buyer was found.

      • Author June 9, 2016 at 2:01 pm #

        Suggesting to him to sell things so there is more cash? Wait. I just woke I have to get coffee v

      • frompariswithlove June 9, 2016 at 3:47 pm #

        Yes! With all their belongings. How symbolic and disgusting is that ? LR and J. must have been sooo sad.

    • Anon June 9, 2016 at 5:14 pm #

      Im still holding out hope that there was some real legit reason he didnt leave this crazy bitch sooner. I might be grasping at straws, maybe he really “loved” her, who the fuck knows. I just hope at the end of this there will be a REASON for some of it. A reason other than “love” because that is horseshit. He looked MISERABLE with her the ENTIRE FUCKING TIME.

      • sadforjd June 9, 2016 at 6:29 pm #

        I agree it always been odd maybe he loved her and maybe he did hit her… time will tell.

        The thing is Amber and minions, stop the slaughter, stop killing depp on social media and selling photos to rag magazines. If he’s a mean , violent sob then go to file report to the cops and use the evidence in court and stop the bullshit.

      • Mango June 9, 2016 at 9:36 pm #

        So where I’m at…. and he seemed level headed and liked where he was before her…. he still had his own way with things but just seemed really in control in his own way…. no this mess was like Twilight Zone…

        HE always seemed like he was actually “acting” a different self to the world after her. And many of his answers and mannerisms for replies to “them” were just bogus and off too. Like your comment Anon.
        I guess it just feels closer to the truth until I learn otherwise.

  11. frompariswithlove June 9, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

    The house (the domain I should say!) in France, Plan de la Tour, was for sale in June 2015. But it was no longer on the market in September 2015. Johnny said he wanted to see his grand children there.

    • frompariswithlove June 9, 2016 at 3:42 pm #

      I suspect this is where he plans to enjoy a summer break with his kids

    • phonytexanbitch June 9, 2016 at 3:47 pm #

      I think Teard tried putting it up for sale, as his wife she wanted to liquidate it so the sale of it would become part of the divorce settlement. Johnny’s business people caught on and informed him before a sale went through and they took it off the market. That would be my guess.

  12. M June 9, 2016 at 3:39 pm #

    This is perhaps the smartest thing I’ve read so far on this shit !!

    • Mango June 9, 2016 at 9:47 pm #

      Hahahaha….Until the divorce goes through…. that’ll be smart too.

  13. frompariswithlove June 9, 2016 at 3:40 pm #

    As for the yacht, yep, sold last January to JK Rowling.

    • Anon June 9, 2016 at 4:55 pm #

      It was sold long before that to another owner who changed the name to “Amphitrite” and then Ambers publicist started a rumor that he had renamed it for her. That was bullshit. The sale record is available on the internet. The new owner renamed it and sold it to JK Rowling.

      • Mango June 9, 2016 at 9:48 pm #

        so many rumors on this boat…. the boat got lucky….. it sailed early out of this mess

  14. SL June 9, 2016 at 5:07 pm #

    I have read this 3 times now, and I commend Elizabeth Cline for chiming in an standing beside Johnny. At this point, he needs all the support he can get.
