Johnny Depp received a standing ovation from his fans at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday night as the actor awaits judgment in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Fans were delighted as Depp, along with friend and singer Jeff Beck, performed a string of music covers for the second night in a row, including John Lennon’s “Isolation” and Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On”.
Depp fans took to Instagram and Twitter to share their take on the American actor’s performance on stage.
“Johnny is an absolute lunatic… leaving court on Friday. playing a gig in Sheffield, UK on Sunday with Jeff Beck was mind blowing.” 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 snaps — simply captioned “🍦23🍧🌸!” — to her Instagram feed, including one with a bouquet of flowers and two photos of her wearing a cheerful pink sash with the caption, “Birthday Princess.”
The Depp Heard trial ended Friday with closing arguments before going to the jury for deliberation.
The 58-year-old actor and Heard have fallen out at the Fairfax County, Virginia, courthouse after Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife over a 2018 comment she made wrote in the Washington Post, in which she claimed that she was a victim of “domestic violence” but did not identify him. Heard is suing him for $100 million.
Depp’s team declined to comment when asked if the actor will appear at the Fairfax County Courthouse tomorrow as jury deliberations resume.
