Johnny Depp was greeted with a standing ovation by his fans at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday night, as the actor awaits a verdict in the defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Fans were delighted to see Depp perform a series of musical covers with his friend and singer Jeff Beck for the second night in a row, including John Lennon’s “Isolation” and Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”.
Depp’s fans took to Instagram and Twitter to share their thoughts about the American actor’s performance on stage.
“Johnny’s a complete madman… Leaves court on Friday. Jeff Beck got upset while playing a gig in Sheffield UK on Sunday,” Twitter user @OneloveEarth said.
Meanwhile, the actor’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp celebrated her 23rd birthday on social media over the weekend.
Lily-Rose shared three snapshots — captioned simply, “🍦23🍧🌸!” — on her Instagram feed, which featured a bouquet of flowers and two photos of her wearing a cheerful pink sash that read “Birthday Princess.”
The Depp-Hurd trial ended on Friday with concluding arguments, before going to the jury for deliberation.
The 58-year-old actor and Heard is battling it out in Fairfax County Courthouse Virginia after Depp filed a $50 million defamation suit against his ex-wife in a 2018 op-ed he wrote in the Washington Post, which he claimed She was a victim of “domestic abuse”, but he did not identify her. Hurd is counting him at $100 million.
Depp’s team declined to comment when asked whether the actor would appear at the Fairfax County Courthouse tomorrow when jury deliberations begin.
