Amber Heard's lawyer has explained why the actress did not report her alleged abuse to the police.
Heard's lawyers Samantha F. Spector and her co-counsel Joseph P. Koenig released a new statement in which she explained that Amber is, "simply a victim of domestic violence." The lawyers explained that the reason that the "Rum Diary" actress did not give a statement to police about the alleged abuse after calling them on May 21 was in order to "protect her privacy and Johnny's career."
Her lawyers went on to say that, "As the result of Amber's decision to decline giving an initial statement to the LAPD, her silence has been used against her by Johnny's team."
The statement continues, "Amber did not provide a statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny's career. Johnny's team has forced Amber to give a statement to the LAPD to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media."
In addition, the lawyers say, "Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny. In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator's playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain."
This whole thing sounds very suspicious to us ...

T-Swizz is one lucky lady!
Calvin Harris is a certified hottie with a body, and he took the opportunity to show us that with this black-and-white shirtless selfie that he posted to Instagram on Memorial Day. Fans were quick to lose their marbles over the snapshot, and it even incited some jealous rages directed at girlfriend Taylor Swift.
The Scottish DJ is still recovering from the car crash he got into last week, so he's been forced to cancel some of lucrative Las Vegas gigs. "Adam is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the car accident last Friday. Unfortunately, as a result he will not be able to perform in Las Vegas at Hakkasan tonight, 5/26 and Omnia tomorrow, 5/27," a statement on his Facebook page read.
The "Bad Blood" songstress probably doesn't mind waking up to this in the morning!

Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin kicked off the summer with some sexy bikini selfies -- because when your whole life is lived for social media, that's what you do!
Kylie, Hailey, Kendall and some pals celebrated the beginning of the summer poolside and of course they caught every skin-baring moment on camera and posted the fruits of their lack of labor on social media.
In the photos, Hailey dons a Solid & Striped Morgan bikini top, which runs for $88, and a Solid & Striped Morgan bikini bottom, which also runs for $88. Kylie got cheeky in a a strappy black bikini that highlights her derriere.
Of course -- the Memorial Day festivities seemed all about the baring of butts. The gaggle of gals perched themselves next too the pool and posed as they grabbed each other's rumps.
Those are some bootylicious babes!
Of course, Kylie and Hailey also took the opportunity to showcase their hip tattoos -- because why not?
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians
has a "sanete" on her right hip, which is "sanity" spelled out in the letters of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Meanwhile Hailey has "gente" inked on her, which means "people" in Portuguese and is an ode to her Brazilian heritage.
We think those are pretty dumb tattoos -- but let's look at who has them, not exactly the brightest bulbs!
The pretty young things look like they had a fun day off -- but let's get real, this is basically what these girls do all day everyday!

Jessica Simpson was feelin' patriotic on Memorial Day, and decided to flaunt her ample curves with an Instagram selfie in a red and white bikini. We guess this is one way of supporting the troops!
Remember when John Mayer gave that awful interview and said he would "sell all his sh*t just to f**k her?" We do too... and he's probably looking at this pic and wondering why he ever gave her the boot!
The buxom blonde bombshell has a new swimwear line, and what better way to promote your new project than by showing off the girls?!

There's no way the real KP would ever be sweet to T-Swizz!
Katy Perry's Twitter account was hacked yesterday, and the perpetrator sent a message to her rival Taylor Swift! "Miss u baby @taylorswift13," they tweeted at the "Bad Blood" songstress. The hacker also leaked an unreleased song titled "Witness 3.1," and insinuated it was from the "Roar" singer's archive.
Almost as soon as they mischief began, Soundcloud and Twitter blocked the activity, but not before fans took a trusty screenshot!
Katy and Tay have hated each other for years, and it began in 2014 when the blonde beauty hinted at a fellow pop star mean girl in an interview with Rolling Stone
. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'," she told the mag.
We're surprised the hacker didn't tweet at John Mayer while they were at it!

We're not sure how she placed, but she did post a photo on Instagram with a trophy, so she clearly won something!
Real Housewives of Orange County
star Tamra Judge competed in her very first Muscle Mania fitness competition over the weekend, and all those months of training look like they paid off.
"Hard work, determination and it all comes down to tonight," the 58-year-old star wrote on Instagram. "Thank you @mia_finnegan for training me and being so dedicated. Thank you @juliusmichael1 from @juliusmichaelsalon for the amazing #hair you always do for me and for being a dear #friend. Thanks @missm1437 for my amazing #makeup always. Thanks for @milliondollartan for making me look pageant perfect! #fitness #glamorous #RHOC #tamrajudge #juliusmichael #love my #glamteam so much!"
After the competition was over, Judge shared a pic with her personal trainer husband Eddie -- and a huge plate of nachos. “Amazing experience,” she wrote, adding, “But it’s Time to relax and enjoy the holiday weekend with friends and family."
Sounds like she earned it!

But it appears as though the Biebs was having some trouble slurping down the booze!
Justin Bieber congratulated pal Lewis Hamilton as soon as the British Formula One racer won the 74th annual Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, and the boys celebrated by cracking open a giant bottle of champagne. Bieber tweeted a pic of the two and wrote, "Congrats to my brother @LewisHamilton on an amazing victory."
"It feels like the best race ever," Hamilton told Sky Sports F1
. "I've had a lot of races so it's difficult to recall all of them, but this one I feel in my heart that I earned it.
In addition to the pop singer, Hamilton palled around with NBA star Chris Bosh, and Bosh's teammated Dwyane Wade and wife Gabrielle Union were at the race as well.

George and Amal Clooney attended the Un Muro o Un Ponte Seminary held by Pope Francis at the Paul VI Hall in Vatican City, Vatican on Sunday, and the two seemed more interested in snuggling with each other than paying attention to the speeches. Or maybe they were...in love with what the Pope was saying? Either way, they looked awfully cozy!
George and Amal met with Pope Francis, as the actor is collaborating with the religious leader and his arts foundation, Scholas Occurrentes, to serve as an ambassador on one of their projects. Richard Gere, Salma Hayek and her hubby Francois-Henri Pinault also attended the event.
Amal wore a black Atelier Versace dress while George rocked a sexy suit, and the couple posed for some photos outside of the venue afterwards. The pair married in the fall of 2014 in Venice, so clearly they have a bit of a love affair with Italy!
