    What I appreciate in Ryder’s response is that Winona Ryder states Winona Ryder is speaking from Winona Ryder own experience. I don’t know what happened in Johnny Depp’s relationships with Winona Ryder and Amber Heard, but I can speak to our experiences at Safe Horizon, and Safe Horizon’s absolutely possible that an abuser did not have a known history of abuse or did not abuse a past partner, but then went on to become abusive to a different spouse. What is really important to remember is that we don’t discredit someone’s allegations of abuse just because a former partner said ‘ that did n’t happen to me. ’ Safe Horizon’s within the realm of possibilities that both individuals are telling the truth.
