-Comment of the Day-
TBH he has had alcohol and drug issues for YEARS, much longer than Amber was even alive for, hell, he was pictured with a pipe walking with Manson into a friends house right after dropping Lily off to school in plain sight of the paps and he seemed to give zero fucks about it.
-but having said that-it’s funny how it’s been years of D & A abuse but never once has he been accused of hitting anyone, only things, until this particular relationship.
Funny how she sits idly by and collects images and video footage instead of hauling his ass to emergency to get treatment.
Funny how she goads him on, instead of attempts to help him.
Funny how she plies him with his vices instead of making a stand to remove such temptations from his environment and support him through rehab.
Funny how she’s throwing all this stuff out there into the public eye for her own selfish requirements instead of quietly trying to rally a support group together to help him fight his demons.
A person who cares (e’g-“she won’t file charges because she still ‘loves’ him and doesn’t want to get him in trouble”) would still want to see that person, even if the relationship is over, get the professional help he needs, and have a solid support network around him to help him regain control of his life-not splash out private images and heavily edited videos to gain sway with the court of public arena.
The funniest thing of all is that even though he has suffered his addictions for many years-his addictions never got so beyond uncontrollable to the point where both he and his actions could barely be recognized and where he developed such a low level of self confidence and self respect that it began to affect his work, his health and his image. For example-never before has he lashed out in the press so often-his motto was always the motto of “Don’t complain-NEVER explain.” That seemed to go right out the window after a level of time with this woman.
I guess maybe that’s where the difference is-his past exes tried to help him control and curb those addictions, tried desperately to help him, protect him, Scamber did the opposite-she enabled him, and manipulated him and used his illness to serve her own selfish end.
Yes-he has issues, and yes he needs help. But that still doesn’t prove he hit her, it just proves what a sad and lonely life he must have been living, filled with dread, fear and shame and the ever ominous shadow of blackmail hanging heavily over his head.
I was never more sad than seeing the video and the photo, thinking what sort of life could that be, sick, sad, trapped and basically alone-if he felt that he couldn’t trust his closest/nearest and dearest. Seeing Johnny before Scamber came into the picture and then after really is like seeing two different Johnnys. There is a reason for that.
I want the old Johnny back.
