Now, Johnny's group of supporters — which includes the actor's ex and baby mama
, Vanessa Paradis
, and long-time friend Doug Stanhope —
are taking drastic measures to prove Johnny's estranged wife wrong. Doug recently published a story on The Wrap
, saying that Amber is "manipulating" and "blackmailing Johnny by telling about his domestic abuse." On June 3, Heard filed a defamation lawsuit against Stanhope, insisting his claims were false and caused "tremendous harm."
