Sia has come out in support of Johnny Depp amid his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard, who accused the actor of domestic violence. The singer wrote on her Twitter that after listening to the published recordings of the conversation between Amber and Johnny, she was convinced that he was a victim in this situation.
Just showing my public support for Johnny Depp.
I mean, I’d love him to get clean and stop with the jewelry, but he is clearly the victim after hearing those tapes.

In addition to Sia, Johnny was also supported by Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Winona Ryder, and Vanessa Paradis.
Most likely, Sia is referring to the recording of the conversation between the actors, which appeared on the Web in February this year. In the recording, Depp complains to Amber that she is becoming “manic evil” and hits him. And Amber quickly goes up in tone.
Also in that recording, Hurd explains to Depp that she did not try to beat him, but simply pushed or poked him with her hand.
She also noted that throwing objects in the direction of Depp should also not be considered a beating attempt. We will remind, in court, Depp said that his ex-wife threw glass bottles, cans, burning candles, TV remotes, and other items at him.
Now the litigation between the actors has been suspended due to filming. They will continue early next year. Johnny demands $ 50 million from Amber for accusing him of domestic violence, and Amber demands $ 100 million from Johnny for slandering and persecuting her on the Internet.
