“Johnny is suing me for an op-ed The Washington Post, Where I describe my experiences of violence and domestic abuse. I never named her, but wrote about the price women have to pay to speak out against men in power, “Aquaman” actress wrote in her statement. “I keep paying that price, but hopefully when this case is over, I can go ahead and Johnny can.”
