The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case sparked intense controversy around the globe in the past few months. Many people preferred Amber Heard, but Johnny also had a sizable following of admirers. In the long run, Paul McCartney also appeared to be backing Johnny Depp. Paul McCartney recently honored Johnny Depp at the Glastonbury Festival

On Saturday, June 25th, 2022, Sir Paul McCartney performed onstage at Glastonbury. He played the song “My Valentine” during his headlining performance as a tribute to his close friend Johnny Depp. Paul hummed and strung along to the song as he projected a black-and-white video of Johnny from the song’s music video, according to The Daily Mail.

Following Johnny’s triumphant defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, the set choice appeared to him as a sign of solidarity. The actor received a 10 million dollar payout from the case in June 2022, to be paid by Amber. Amber has since filed a notice of appeal against the judgment, which divorce lawyer Raiford Dalton Palmer strongly cautions against in this case.

“Her chance of success on an appeal is a long shot. Any deal would include a confidentiality agreement and a non-disparagement provision with a liquidated damages clause to keep her from repeating the defamation statements and any other negative statements about Depp. He would buy her silence by releasing part or all of the judgment in my opinion.”

Paul himself did not directly address the chaotic trial that has received extensive media coverage during Glastonbury, though. Despite this, the audience allegedly applauded when Johnny’s video, which was the same reel that Paul had previously used on his Get Back Tour prior to the trial’s ruling, appeared onstage.

The actual video shows Natalie Portman and the Edward Scissorhands actor playing guitar and singing along to the song. In other exciting festival news, Paul’s performance makes him the festival’s oldest headliner ever and marks his first visit to the venue since 2004.

With George Harrison’s ukulele, the former Beatles member paid tribute to the late John Lennon. In addition, he invited the late rock icon Dave Grohl to play many songs, including the popular “Band On The Run.” Bruce Springsteen was then brought on stage by Paul, and they both rocked out to the song “Glory Days” together.

However, Johnny Depp has received a lot of love and support throughout this difficult period, which he greatly appreciates. Although Amber Heard has filed an appeal, let’s see what happens next. Keep checking Thirsty for more updates.
