Julia Fox attacks online in support of Amber Heard
According to TrasheCultural, a Spanish gossip source, Julia Fox shared her views on the much-publicized defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp against Amber Heard.
In a statement, the 32-year-old model investigated Depp, alleging that Heard had manipulated her life.
She said Depp was “so in love with her and it’s a morbid way of controlling her life by suing her all over the world”.
Meanwhile, a screenshot has surfaced where Fox states that Heard may have shot Depp during their relationship, but that this shouldn’t be called abuse.
The article circulating on social media, ‘Wrong. He never had the strength to mistreat her in the relationship. Did he hit her? Yes. Was it abuse? No. You have to have the power to abuse it. He was 25 years old. He was clearly always much stronger physically and financially.’
Twitter users reacted to Julia Fox, who supported Amber Heard
Many Twitter users were not impressed by Julia Fox’s comment on the controversial defamation lawsuit. His stance sparked a heated debate on the social media platform between the two polarized fan groups.
Several users criticized the model, saying she tried to stay ‘relevant’ after dating Kanye West.
One of the users said, ‘Abuse is abuse. It’s not insane to claim physical abuse because someone is younger, is a woman, or isn’t in a position of power.’

julia fox closed the eff up challenge.
Amber was 26 during her time with Johnny Depp and was financially independent of him. She admitted on multiple audio tapes that she started a fight and refused to let her get on with her violence. #justiceforjohnnydepp pic.twitter.com/mlAjt0wtEW
