Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s lawyers made their closing arguments in a Virginia courtroom on Friday. The jury began deliberations but was excused after two hours. They’ll return on Tuesday to continue the conversation. Johnny Depp recently rocked out with his old friend/musician Jeff Beck as a surprise guest during a U.K. gig.
The 58-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star performed at Beck’s event at Sheffield City Hall. Depp can be seen playing the guitar alongside Beck on a cover of John Lennon’s song Isolation in a YouTube video. Following six weeks in court alongside his ex, the Hollywood star was in excellent spirits for his first public appearance.
Heard and Depp will have one hour from the time the jury announces its decision to arrive at the courthouse before the decision is announced. If Depp plays with Beck on Tuesday, he may miss the verdict if the jury deliberates quickly. Eve Barlow, a close friend of Heard’s, expressed her displeasure with the show on Twitter.
So, Johnny Depp is on tour with Jeff Beck. He played in Sheffield tonight, and will likely play the Royal Albert Hall in London tomorrow and Tuesday. That’s the domestic abuse victim waiting for his defamation case verdict. The one who’s been canceled.
The actor sued Heard, accusing her of inventing abuse charges that resulted in his Hollywood blacklisting. He entered the stand to give impassioned evidence, claiming that he never touched his ex-wife and that he has never been physically abusive to any other woman in his life. Heard, for one, has maintained that Depp was abusive toward her on several times during their relationship. Keep an eye on Thirsty to get latest updates on this story.
