- Johnny Depp is awaiting the verdict of the famous defamation trial
- He flew to London and surprised fans
- He was seen on stage beside Jeff Beck
Johnny Depp is taking a well-deserved break after a very long and very stressful few weeks during his trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The ex-couple have been involved in a very public and very damaging defamation trial after Heard wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post calling Depp out for alleged abuse. After losing the libel case against the UK newspaper, The Sun, tensions are high as the jury deliberates.
Johnny Depp heads to London and performs
The legendary Jeff Beck had a concert in London on Sunday, and Depp made a surprise appearance on stage! The Pirates of the Caribbean star grabbed his guitar and rocked out to adoring fans.
Beck, who wrote a song with Depp back in 2020 titled "Isolation", said on his website that the two had been working on music together for a while and that fans can expect more from them.
Journalist and friend of Depp, Bobby London, posted a video on his Instagram of the mega-star rocking it on stage alongside the rock icon.
The jury is made of 7 individuals, and they have up to six weeks to deliberate and unanimously come to a decision on whether to grant Depp a win.
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million dollars in damages, after her reporting the alleged abuse which Depp has called "egregious lies", caused him to lose countless job opportunities and movie deals, including being let go from the Pirates franchise and his role as "Grindlewald" in Fantastic Beasts.
But Depp is more than just a good actor. Along with his iconic roles, the A-lister is also an ambitious rockstar!
During the trial, Depp revealed that he actually originally came to Hollywood to pursue music, and it was just by chance he started acting in films.
He's currently part of the band Hollywood Vampires, which includes rock icon, Alice Cooper. It's his ultimate passion for music that he used as a reason why Heard's claim he severed his own finger is false, as it meant he wasn't able to play guitar for weeks on end.
"Why would I ruin the only thing that was really good in my life aside from my children?" he said while on the stand.
Last week he concluded his statements about the horrible allegations, stating that it's all one elaborate hoax.
"No human being is perfect," he said. "Certainly not. None of us. But I have never in my life committed sexual battery, physical abuse, all these outlandish, outrageous stories of me committing these things and living with it for six years and waiting to be able to bring the truth out."
Only time will tell what the end result will be!
