Wright, a photographer and TV host who was named in the actor’s divorce filing, fired back at a report by TMZ on Monday, June 6, which claimed that two concierges from the apartment block where Heard and Depp lived had denied seeing “evidence of any facial bruising,” after the alleged iPhone attack on May 21.

“BULLS–T,” blasted Wright, who took to Twitter to defend her friend Heard. “I’ve had enough. I saw the bruises. Many times. And the fat lip. And the cut head,” she continued.

“How much evidence does a woman need to present?! She has photos, texts, witnesses, and filed a restraining order,” she went on. “This culture of victim blaming makes me sick. I’m a witness. I’m here. I’m standing up. I can’t take any more of this witch hunt. I was on the f–king phone when he hit her. I HEARD HER SCREAM. I will testify. Here and in court. Under oath. WHAT ELSE DOES A WOMAN NEED?”

In a court filing to support an application for a restraining order on May 28, Heard named Wright as the person who was on the phone with her at the time of the alleged abuse.

Heard, 30, said in a signed affidavit, that Depp, 52, had demanded she call Wright to “prove his paranoid and irrational accusations about some delusional idea he was having,” adding that he had screamed “profanities and insults at iO.”
