Johnny Depp was greeted by a standing ovation from his fans at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday night as the actor awaits the verdict in his libel case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Fans rejoiced to see Depp alongside his friend and singer Jeff Beck perform a series of musical covers, including John Lennon’s “Isolation” and Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On,” for the second night in a row.
Depp fans took to Instagram and Twitter to share their views on the American actor’s performance on stage.
“Johnny is an absolute madman…leaves court on Friday. playing a gig in Sheffield UK on Sunday with a blown away Jeff Beck,” 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 snapshots – captioned simply, “🍦23🍧🌸!” — to her Instagram feed, including one of a bouquet of flowers and two photos of her wearing a cheery pink sash that reads “Birthday Princess.”
The Depp-Heard trial ended with closing arguments on Friday, before heading to the jury for deliberations.
The 58-year-old actor and Heard fought in the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia after Depp filed a $50million libel suit against his ex-wife over a 2018 op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post, in which she claimed that she was the victim of “domestic violence” but did not identify it. Heard is suing him for $100 million.
Depp’s team declined to comment when asked if the actor will appear in the Fairfax County Courthouse tomorrow as jury deliberations resume.
