One thing we can say about Johnny Depp Does he definitely like the spotlight.
The actor and musician heavily publicized a seven-week defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard with a surprise appearance at a Jeff Beck concert at Sheffield City Hall in England on Sunday.
“Okay… what a surprise to us last night when Johnny Depp joined @jeffbeckmusic on stage,” the venue tweeted Monday. “Best wishes to JeffBeckMusic on their wonderful tour and many thanks to Johnny Depp for joining us!”
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star appeared completely distraught just days after he and Heard’s attorneys argued and a jury ruled their $50 million lawsuit.
Multiple outlets and social media posts report that Depp and Beck graced a few covers, including Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin’ On” and John Lennon’s “Isolation”.
Depp is no stranger to the concert stage. Together with musicians Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, he formed the supergroup Hollywood Vampire in 2012.
Depp’s defamation slogan against Heard started last month. Depp sued Heard in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post in which he described himself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Although Depp was not named in the article, he claims it affected his reputation and caused him to lose his job. Hurd filed a counterclaim for $100 million.
Although Depp sued Heard for defamation, the lawsuit sparked a massive backlash on social media against his ex-wife, with Depp’s fans — and even some celebrities — downvoting. Heard allegations of domestic violence.
One of Heard’s attorneys, Benjamin Rottenborn, asked the jury on Friday to “think about the message that Mr. Depp and his attorney are sending to Amber and, by extension, victims of domestic abuse everywhere: If you didn’t take pictures.” If you took pictures, they are fake. If you didn’t tell your friends, you’re lying. And if you told your friends, they’re part of the deception. If you didn’t seek medical treatment, you weren’t injured. If you didn’t seek medical attention, you’re insane.”
