I quoted it directly from the article:
Heard's friend iO Tillett Wright—who was named as a witness to one of Depp's blow ups in Heard's court documents—defended the actress on Twitter Monday night, sounding off on the constant "victim blaming" being thrown against the blonde.
I hadn't heard of her before reading her statement. Here's her Wikipedia page.

ETA: The spelling and capitalization are correct, although, without digging much deeper, I can't ascertain if it was Wright's parents or Wright's own version.

It's more likely a later affection. I wouldn't think it's the sort of thing that's common in Kidderminster.

I could see it going either way, since some of the edgier artists come from parents who were edgier. As we were on the subject, it wasn't a big strain to actually find out which way this went.

It was her parents: "You read it right. Her name is actually iO. Little i, big O. When they registered her name her parents said 'everything in life is made of lines and circles'."

So, there you have it.

Making this even harder to form an opinion on is that all involved (Heard, Depp and say Tillett) are complete weirdo's.

I got to really admire the way Doug Stanhope ran diversion for Johnny with the column he published entitled, "Johnny Depp Is Being Blackmailed by Amber Heard – Here’s How I Know". If you read the column carefully, you will see that Stanhope makes no defamatory remarks...only the Title of the Article is objectionable (and Doug Stanhope probably didn't choose the title for this opinion piece).

So...even though Amber Heard is suing Stanhope and Friends - or thinks she will - it looks like an airtight case on Stanhope's side. And...this wiley move by a guy like Stanhope does not surprise me. I mean, Stanhope is 49 years-old: he's seen a few things and knows how to conduct himself. Additionally, Stanhope is a long-time successful comedian: and this type have average IQs higher than the average IQs of Doctors, Lawyers and Scientists.

As a result of the column, Stanhope has caused heard to expend additional resources for attorneys (i.e., spend money) that she will not be able to replensh soon. In other words, his diversion is help draining her Bank Account - and once Amber's Bank accounts are drained then Amber's friends and Attorneys will leave her - and then Johnny can easily get the settlement he wants.

Furthermore, if Johnny and Stanhope (and other friends of Johnny, too) really did have a discussion of what was about to happen between himself and Amber (i.e., she was going to make false allegations according to what Stanhope said), then don't bet against Johnny not having that condo wired for video and sound the night that the supposed Domestic Abuse incident occurred - it's an act that any smart man would have recommended to Johnny given the circumstances. Also, Johnny had witnesses on hand, and was smart enough to be away from the scene when the cops arrived (he had obviously been coached and prepared - he knew what to do!).

But...even more telling is Johnny's.....ABSOLUTE SILENCE: which is incredibly smart for it allows Johnny time to scope out what is about to be done and said against him before he must make a counter move. People often confuse Silence with guilt - and they couldn't be more wrong. A smart man remains silent and lets the other side infect the discourse with stupidity and falsehoods until he must make an official on-the-record statement (and this gives the other side no time to prepare a response!). Johnny's Silence is indicative of his discipline and his good legal consul - and it's going to be a major factor in him winning this fight.

it should be interesting.

Standhope's conspiracy theories about bin Laden and the poppy fields and his endorsement of Ron Paul kind of takes the wind out your sails on that one... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=3IeNYF-OzSc

I love Standhope. But most comedians are cynics of a kind and given to conspiracy theories and stupidity. Bill Burr, Bill Hicks, etc... yeah ok bud.

I suspect Olivia Pope is involved.

I love Depp and I think Heard (understandably) has gone a little bit screwy from the stress of having an unpredictable lover who drinks and does coke as much as she does.

Actually, what I just said should be the end of it....

Don't do coke.

Olivia Pope makes nice fiction, but there are real-life Lawyers who do even more profound things...and they don't do it "Let's get her done in 59 minutes" Hollywood Style like in the movies: the late Lawyer Percy Foreman was just such a guy.

If Johnny Depp has such a lawyer, then he is plenty lucky.

Well . . . I was going for the joke, but I'm well aware Olivia Pope is partially based on crisis manager Judy Smith.

I've hated Depp ever since he got an Oscar nomination for the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie while Russel Crowe was ignored for Master and Commander even though he absolutely nailed the character of Jack Aubrey. Which is not Johnny's fault, but still maybe she could get Clarkson to come over and punch him for me.

Funny, even if it does not mention age. Single women reach peak craziness in their 30s.

I have had the privilege to know many women who are very hard or resilient or mentally tough or whatever you want to say. When your lover gets crazy, you lose your mind the same as any human, doesn't matter if you are special forces or a nanny for Joel Osteen.

Well...it appears that Amber Heard and friends are avoiding a deposition prior to the Domestic restraining Order Trial scheduled for 17 June.

https://www.tmz.com/2016/06/10/amber...osition-trial/

As a result, Depp's Lawyer doesn't think they should be allowed to testify if they are unwilling to sit for the Deposition and has filed court papers to that effect. As a parting shot, the Lawyer says, "[Amber] has tried her claims in the media. It is now time to do so in a court of law."

Also, it appears that the Police Woman who arrested Amber Heard for Domestic Violence against her partner in 2009 was not the Homophobic Cop that Amber's friend contends she was...the cop is a proud Lesbian! Ooops...one more story just fell though for Amber!

I seemed to have pushed a button.

It wasn't meant to be taken seriously. I didn't mention anything about dismissing her claims, I was attempting to humorously mock those that might claim she is not to be believed simply because she is a bisexual atheist.

I just think it's appropriate to wait and see if any of those people exist before mocking them, that's all.

Being a Lesbian is not evidence that the person is not Homophobic. There have been many people caught doing things they tell other people not to do. Or behaving in ways that you would not expect.

Well...she's open about her Lesbianism and proud of her choices and her girlfriend and doesn't hesitate to tell the world. Yet....somehow your mighty logic has led you to conclude that there is a significant chance this woman is homophobic?

I am in awe of your deductive powers.
