Johnny Depp Celebrates End Of Trial Performing Live With Jeff Beck
Johnny Depp is spending some time in England while he awaits the verdict in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Only days after his attorneys delivered closing remarks, The Pirates of the Caribbean star joined Jeff Beck on the stage at a concert in Sheffield, England, on May 29. They performed their 2020 collaboration “Isolation,” a remake of the 1970 John Lennon track. As seen in videos circulating online, Depp also joined Beck on guitar for a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing.”
A source close to Depp, who founded the rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires, said that Depp was in town due to “previously scheduled work obligations.”
During closing arguments on May 27, Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez called Heard the abuser in the former couple’s relationship and accused the actress of lying about alleged injuries from the actor. The legal team for Heard, who is countersuing Depp for $100 million, argued that their client wrote the infamous op-ed as a way to promote legislative measures designed to protect victims of domestic abuse and “if Ms. Heard wanted to be malicious for Mr. Depp, the article would be very different.”
Jury deliberations started on Friday and are expected to continue on May 31.
