Johnny Depp was greeted with a standing ovation from his fans at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Monday night, as the actor awaits sentencing in his libel trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Fans rejoiced to see Depp perform a string of music covers with his friend and singer Jeff Beck for the second night in a row, including John Lennon’s “Isolation” and Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On.”
Fans of Depp shared their thoughts about the American actor’s performance on stage via Instagram and Twitter.
“Johnny is an absolute madman… leaves court on Friday. playing a gig in Sheffield UK Sunday with Jeff Beck stunned,” Twitter user @OneloveEarth said.
Meanwhile, the actor’s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, celebrated her 23rd birthday on social media last weekend.
Lily-Rose shared three snapshots – with the simple caption “🍦23🍧🌸!” — to her Instagram feed, which included a bouquet of flowers and two photos of her wearing a cheery pink sash that reads “Birthday Princess.”
The Depp-Heard trial closed with closing arguments Friday, before going to the jury for deliberation.
The 58-year-old actor and Heard fought it off in Fairfax County Courthouse Virginia after Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife over a 2018 op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post, in which she claimed she was the victim of ‘domestic violence’ but did not identify him. Heard is suing him for $100 million.
Depp’s team declined to comment on whether the actor will appear at Fairfax County Courthouse tomorrow when jury deliberations resume.
