Amber now faces a $50 million defamation lawsuit stemmed from the article brought on by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. Though Depp was not specifically mentioned in the op-ed, his lawyers argued that the article unmistakenly referred to him.
Amid the case, ex-girlfriend Winona Ryder has reportedly come out in support of Johnny Depp. The Stranger Things actor has allegedly filed a declaration in Virginia and went on record to provide her side of the story. According to the court documents as reviewed by a news source, Winona Ryder made it clear that she is in support of Johnny Depp. Fans are speculating that amid Winona's Stranger Things fame and these back-and-forth allegations of Depp and Heard, coming out in support of Johnny could be a big thing for her.

She said that she is aware of the domestic abuse allegations publicly made by Amber Heard.
