Sir Paul McCartney seemed to support Johnny Depp at his Orlando concert over the weekend. The Hollywood actor is waiting for the verdict in his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The Beatles legend, who turns 80 next month, is said to have shown a clip of his music video for “My Valentine,” which features Johnny Depp, on giant screens behind him while performing at the Camping World Stadium in Florida on Saturday (May 28). This is said to be a show of support for the “Alice in Wonderland” actor, but it could just be a coincidence.
The actor, who is 58 years old, is suing Heard, who is 36, for defamation over an opinion piece she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018 in which she called herself “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
The actor from “Pirates of the Caribbean” says it gives the wrong impression that he is a domestic abuser, which he has strongly denied, and that it has made it hard for him to get roles in Hollywood.
He is suing for $50 million, but the actress from “Aquaman” is suing him back for $100 million. She says that Depp is behind a “smear campaign” against her and that his lawsuit is just more “abuse and harassment.”
While this was going on, Depp spent a few weeks in court in Fairfax, Virginia. On Sunday, he went to England to surprise his musician friend Jeff Beck during his show at Sheffield City Hall (29.05.22).
The friends sang their 2020 cover of John Lennon’s 1970 hit “Isolation,” as well as versions of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” according to videos of the concert shared on social media, in which the “Sweeney Todd” star looked in good shape.
On May 30 and 31, the former Yardbirds star will play more concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and it’s possible that Hollywood Vampires rocker Johnny Depp will also be there.
