She says: ‘[Johnny] is a gentle soul. I can tell you that last night he spent about 45 minutes in his dressing room on his knees, talking to this little girl who was reading his newspaper to him.
‘Now I don’t know many guys who would sit down and do that. There were no cameras around, there were no film crews. He did it because he’s a gentle soul.
“Sometimes I guess he lost his rag, but as a human being he’s a good human being,” she added.
Still, Sharon noted the couple’s relationship was ‘toxic’, saying: ‘For me, I related to it so much and I know alcoholic behavior inside out and inside out…but they were both abusive , both very, very abusive towards each other.

“She knows the game, she knows how it goes. »
Sharon added that Amber “wanted to destroy” Johnny, stating, “Johnny has a huge price on his head, the world loves him”. The world really wanted him to win and he won and that was it. She could have backed off somehow, she could have had it, there could have been something to save it.
‘Because he wouldn’t have gone this far, if she hadn’t pushed and pushed and pushed… she wanted to destroy him.’
After the libel trial, Johnny hopes to pick up the thread of his movie career, and Sharon said she thinks it might be possible for the star to make a comeback.

She said in a statement: ‘This is a setback. It takes the clock back to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It pushes back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously.
“I believe Johnny’s lawyers have succeeded in causing the jury to ignore the key issue of freedom of speech and ignore the evidence so conclusive that we have won in the UK. I’m sad to have lost this case.
“But I’m even sadder to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly. »
