What the Media’s Not Telling You About Amber Heard

When news broke last Thursday that Amber Heard may have been abused by Johnny Depp, I was already having a pretty disturbing day. I had just learned that Blake Leibel, for whom I had worked for as a proofreader and writer until last December, had murdered his girlfriend. And now seeing that one of my favorite childhood idols quite possibly used his bisexual wife as a punching bag, it suddenly seemed like no matter how well you know someone — whether they’re a celebrity or someone in your personal life — they can always turn out to be someone you never expected.
