Johnny Depp celebrated his defamation lawsuit victory in London.
The 58-year-old actor joined his friend and collaborator, Jeff Beck, on stage while stopping on the singer’s tour in London. The show was held at The Sage in Gateshead in the northern part of London. He appeared on the right side of the stage and was welcomed by cheers from the audience. Beck has just finished singing some songs.
He referred to Depp’s victory, saying, “What a result. What a result.”
The two embraced and then the Pirates of the Caribbean star started playing the guitar and sang some songs including “What’s Going On?” by Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing.”
He performed for about 30 minutes before leaving the stage and returned only for an encore. He didn’t say anything about the trial during the show. Other artists were present at the show such as Sharon Corr who showed her support for the actor by saying in the middle of the concert, “pleasure to see Johnny tell his truth. The truth will always come out as they say,” midway through the concert.
This wasn’t the first time he was with Beck. He also joined the musician on Monday night at London’s Royal Albert Hall and they were also together at Sheffield City Hall last Sunday. He’ll be touring with Beck in the U.K before going to Scandinavia, Italy, and France.
On Wednesday, the actor was awarded $10.35 million in damages after winning against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. He claimed that she defamed him after writing an op-ed which was published on The Washington Post in 2018. She filed a countersuit and sued him for $100 million. She claimed he harmed her career and reputation as well as discredit her and her allegations.- Advertisement -
Meanwhile, Depp was at a pub in the U.K. before the verdict was released. A source told PEOPLE that he was “very down to earth and a very nice bloke.” He had fish and chips together with a pint of Guinness. He also had a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale. He was there with Beck and another singer, Sam Fender.
The source said that the actor left before the much-awaited verdict was announced.
