Johnny Depp makes another surprise appearance on stage in London during a defamation trial
Johnny Depp appeared on stage with musician Jeff Beck for the second evening in a row in the UK a few days after the defamation lawsuit ended with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Concert footage posted extensively on social media shows Depp Beck performing on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London, singing guitar. According to Sky News, the duo released their 2020 collaboration “Isolation”, the cover of the song John Lennon, released in 1970.
“He was knocking on my dressing room door about five years ago, and we haven’t stopped laughing ever since,” Beck said on stage in a video, Sky News reported. “We kept quiet because … for obvious reasons … he’s here.”
This is Depp’s second appearance on stage with Beck. On Sunday, Depp surprised fans at the Jeff Beck concert in Sheffield, England.
As previously reported by Insider, video footage from the event shows the pair performing on the cover of Marvin Gay’s “What’s Going On” as well as Jimmy Hendrix’s “Little Wing”. He also performed Depp’s unpublished song “This is Ms. Heidi Lamar’s song.”
The onslaught came just days after lawyers representing Depp and Heard made their final arguments in the pair’s ongoing defamation suit.
Johnny Depp first filed a lawsuit against Heard in March 2019, alleging that he defamed her in the 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence. Depp alleges that Hurd actually attacked him physically and verbally during their relationship. Heard has denied the allegations and countered, citing at least 10 instances in court in which she says Depp physically abused her, most likely the alcohol-or drug-fueled rage she described.
The jury is currently hearing the case, which began on April 11 and has been witnessing for more than six weeks.
