Doug Stanhope will NOT keep quiet!
On Monday, Doug visited the Howard Stern Show to discuss Amber Heard's defamation lawsuit against him. The blonde first filed the suit earlier this month after the comedian penned an op-ed defending Johnny Depp against abuse allegations.

Naturally, Ambs was NOT a fan of the message and she quickly slapped Mr. Stanhope with a suit. Now D.S. has spoken out again to reiterate his suspicions of Heard in addition to chalking up the legal issue as "spite".
To sum up just how bitter Stanhope is over the defamation issue, he started off the convo by declaring:
"Anything that I say, they can twist my words. It's such a bulls–t suit."
While the 49-year-old never intended to cause a major sh*t storm by his post, the media blew it up into such a big deal that the actress couldn't help but catch wind of it:
"I put it on my website. The title was ‘At a Loss for Words' … whatever it was. TheWrap got it as an exclusive, however that worked, and said, ‘Amber Heard Is Blackmailing Johnny Depp — This Is How I Know.' I didn't write that f–king title. I didn't put that stupid tabloid title in there. I'm a better writer than that, so I don't know if it's hinged on that, I don't know how much of it is spite."
Hmm… if Stanhope didn't use the phrase "blackmail" himself, then we wonder how much of a case the beauty has. Otherwise, all the California resident did was retell his version of events.
To make matters even more complicated, Doug claimed he doesn't have any money for the Texas native to take from him, joking:
"The idea of some Hollywood supermodel lady winning all of my s–t … She would be locking the doors driving down my street even without seeing a person. I live on the Mexican border in this dirty pothole-riddled neighborhood."
Ha! Well, if this is an issue of "spite", then we're thinking money isn't the motivation here!
As for whether or not Depp himself appreciated the piece, Stanhope revealed:
"I had no contact with [Depp] until he texted me after that went out and said, ‘Hey, thanks for being honest.' He didn't know that was going out. I was a little petrified because it kind of made him look like a b*tch. 'Cause he was kind of a b*tch."
Hey, at least the jokester is being honest!
Summing up his feelings on the legal matter, Doug explained:
"I think what she's trying to do is make me shut the f–k up. Because I can't say anything about it, and now I'm talking more."
"Talking more", indeed! We wonder what else the comedian will come out with in the coming days and weeks!
So, whose side are YOU on?
