Jaime King won’t take sides in Johnny/Amber split
Jaime King isn’t taking sides in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s split.
Amber, 30, has accused Johnny, 53, of physically assaulting her throughout their 15-month marriage but despite the actress being granted a restraining order against him, Jaime, 37, says "we cannot take sides in a situation that we’re not there for".
Speaking to Us Weekly, she said: "It’s all hearsay. It’s all ‘he said, she said’. Frankly, it’s not about sides because we cannot take sides in a situation that we’re not there for, bottom line. It’s about loving and supporting each person by saying, give them their privacy let them work it out. Also, bring awareness to any sort of domestic violence no matter what happened or did not happen."
"Bottom line, what bothers me the most is that people are being hurt on both sides. It is a deeply painful situation and people are treating it as if it’s entertainment, and it’s not f**king funny. And it’s not entertaining."
Jaime played Johnny’s daughter in 2001 movie ‘Blow’ and says she has "so much respect for him".
She explained: "It makes me really emotional. Listen, I love Johnny Depp. One of my very first movies he played my father. I learned so much from him. I have so much respect for him. He is one of the most loving, kind, generous, attentive, brilliant men that I’ve ever met.
"I would have scenes that he wasn’t even in and he wouldn’t even leave. He would just stay to watch. He would rehearse with me. There was so much that I learned from him. He was an incredible mentor. Being able to work with someone like that at the beginning of my career really taught me what it meant to be a true professional and a true artist."
And Jaime also praised Amber, saying: "I love Amber. I think that she’s an incredible bright light. She’s a beautiful human being."
Amber recently filed for divorce from the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor and has accused him of being physically and verbally abusive towards her during their marriage.
The actress’ pal iO Tillet Wright, who called the police after Johnny allegedly attacked Amber last month, recently said that Amber was left with a "busted lip and clumps of hair on the floor" after an "all-out assault".
Johnny has denied the allegations.
