Holy shit, so Amber Heard is basically Amy from Gone Girl.

Used and abused her ex-assistant in despicable ways over the years, even used and twisted her own sexual assault story to present it as her own.

It goes on and on... And weirder.

I wouldn't be surprised if Depp is guilty of some of Heard's accused him of, but between the leaked audio from a while ago and many of the new findings like this:

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/j ... court-told

She is indeed a dangerous and insidious person in how she used the MeToo both weapon and shield. Whatever else he is I don't know, but one thing I am sure of is that Depp is a victim. It's a sad state of affairs.

I'm more concerned about those who write off and trivialize the actual proof about Heard towards Depp for gendered reasons, as if men can't be victims and should be treated with sensitivity and care.

People with substance abuse problems spiral hard when they suffer abuse. This is well known and tragic, and clearly what's been going on with him. He's always been a troubled guy.

I agree with this too.

It's just annoying seeing people who wanted the truth told in court now getting mad and accusing people of lying for telling the truth.

Rose McGowan has accused director Alexander Payne of sexual misconduct.

McGowan, the actor and whistleblower, made allegations on Twitter on Monday about an incident with Payne that occurred when she was 15. At the time, Payne would have been in his late 20s.

Based on McGowan’s age, the incident would have occurred in the late ’80s.

β€œAlexander Payne,” McGowan tweeted. β€œYou sat me down & played a soft-core porn movie you directed for Showtime under a different name. I still remember your apartment in Silverlake. You are very well-endowed. You left me on a street corner afterwards. I was 15.”

In another tweet, McGowan shared a photo of herself at 15 years old, writing, β€œI just want an acknowledgement and an apology. I do not want to destroy.”

Monday’s allegations are the first time McGowan has named Payne, but in the past, she has referred to an incident of alleged misconduct when she was 15.

In a conversation with investigative journalist Ronan Farrow in early 2018 at the 92nd Y, McGowan spoke about a sexual encounter with a β€œvery famous” man when she was 15, and said she recently learned it was statutory rape and that she would eventually come forward with the man’s name when she was ready. β€œHe took me home, after he met me, and showed me a soft-porn movie he’d made for Showtime, under a different name, of course,” McGowan said during the conversation with Farrow. β€œAnd then he had sex with me. And then he left me next to Tropical in Silver Lake, standing on a street corner.”

FKA twigs Sues Shia LaBeouf, Citing β€˜Relentless’ Abusive Relationship

Just after Valentine’s Day in 2019, the musician FKA twigs was in a car speeding toward Los Angeles. At the wheel was her boyfriend, the actor Shia LaBeouf. He was driving recklessly, she said in a lawsuit filed on Friday, removing his seatbelt and threatening to crash unless she professed her love for him.

They were returning from the desert, where Mr. LaBeouf, the star of β€œTransformers,” had raged at her throughout the trip, FKA twigs said in the lawsuit, once waking her up in the middle of the night, choking her. After she begged to be let out of the car, she said he pulled over at a gas station and she took her bags from the trunk. But Mr. LaBeouf followed, and assaulted her, throwing her against the car while screaming in her face, according to the suit. He then forced her back in the car.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, says that Mr. LaBeouf knowingly gave Ms. Barnett a sexually transmitted disease. It accuses him of β€œrelentless abuse,” including sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress.
Mr. LaBeouf responded Thursday to the concerns raised by Ms. Barnett, and a second former girlfriend who has accused him of abusive behavior, in an email that broadly addressed his conduct.

β€œI’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel,” he said in an email to The New York Times. β€œI have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I’m ashamed of that history and am sorry to those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say.”

This might be the least shocking news regarding abuse in Hollywood thus far.

I actually came across this news only now. I know Shia being a big hot mess was a surprise to literally no one, but I was under the impression that his very recent years and his movies almost seemingly painted this picture of him trying to get on a better path. But that can be so incredibly misleading, as evident here.

This is mortifying. How traumatic it must have been for the victims. The dude has seemingly had a very troubling childhood and lots of inner turmoil, but neither that nor mental health issues should ever be an excuse or reason to treat someone this horribly. Good for FKA Twigs.
