Prior to Amber Johnny had been in other long term relationships and there had never been any suggestion that he was anything other than a loving and respectful partner. Yes, he was always something of a wild child and was open about enjoying a drink and other things but there’s a huge leap between that and abusing a woman. Amber has a lot to answer for and I fully support him in taking out a lawsuit against her. Her accusations are so serious they are for certain affecting his career and of course his reputation and he has every right to defend himself. That he is prepared to take this action seems to indicate that he has solid evidence against her that will stand up in court - it makes no sense for him to proceed without it.
Unfortunately for him this saga has coincided with the rise of the #metoo movement, that seems to promote the idea that all men are automatically guilty upon accusation with no leeway for them to defend themselves. I think it will be very hard for him to repair the damage she has done, but I wish him well on this road. He does have to take some responsibility for marrying her and being drawn in by her, I will never understand what he saw in her, she is nothing compared to Vanessa, or indeed Kate, Winona and his other partners.I still feel very sorry for Lily Rose and Jack for whom all this must have been so distressing.
