Johnny Depp Performs With Jeff Beck 2 Weeks After Amber Heard Wins In Court

This Sunday, 59-year-old Johnny Depp was on the same stage with his regular musical partner Jeff Beck. The concert took place as part of the Helsinki Blues Festival.

Apparently, Johnny has had a long process with his ex-wife and is ready to move on – to act and take on new roles in the cinema.

“The trial was necessary, but he’s glad it’s over,” an insider said of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. “Although he is relieved by the jury’s verdict, he is not overjoyed about it.”

On June 9, Depp and Beck announced the imminent release of a new album called 18. The release is slated for July 15.

“I am honored to play and write music with Jeff, one of the real greats and who I can now call my brother,” said the actor.

The duo also released the official music video for their lead single from the new album titled This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr.

“I haven’t had another creative partner like him in ages,” Beck said of Depp in a press release. “He was the main force on this album. I just hope people take him seriously as a musician because it’s hard for some people to accept that Johnny Depp can play rock and roll.

Recall that earlier this month, Depp won all three libel cases in his case against Amber Heard over her 2018 article alleging she was a victim of domestic violence.

The jury awarded Depp $15 million in damages, but Amber will pay only $10.35 million because of a Virginia law limiting punitive damages. In addition, a seven-member jury awarded Heard $2 million in damages for her counterclaims against Depp.

“Now he’s not even talking about the process,” the source added. “He filled a lawsuit because he felt it was necessary. However, he goes further.

Now Johnny can do what he loves again. He enjoys performing and has a busy summer ahead of him. He also looks forward to continuing the work. He just wants his career back. He likes acting.”
