Johnny Depp Celebrated Defamation Trial Win Over Amber Heard With Locals In A UK Pub

When Johnny Depp won his multi-million dollar defamation suit, he celebrated differently. He started partying with the Brits- while enjoying a plate of fish and chips in a pub. The jury in the trial had taken 14 hours to come to a verdict- considering the gravity of the situation. In the end, they decreed that Heard had indeed defamed Depp. This defamation case, as many already know, stemmed from a Washington Post op-ed that Heard wrote in 2018. The jury then went on to award $15 million to Depp as reparations, which was then reduced to 10.35 million. The high-profile legal battle finally concluded in Virginia, after six long weeks. 

However, when the verdict came out, Johnny Depp was nowhere near Virginia. In fact, he was seen partying in a small British pub in Newcastle. Awed onlookers then watched as Depp took a seat with Sam Fender- the famous musician. And to put the cherry on top, they ordered a traditional $17 fish and chips. Janine Latchford, the General Manager of the pub then recalled the entire experience to Chronicle Live. They explained that Depp was with friends and wanted some anonymity. This led to the pub affording him his own private space.

Janine Latchford also spoke about how polite Johnny Depp was to everyone. He even spoke to one of the bar staff who was expecting. But the best bit about this event was the actor praising the food that he ate. And considering it was a traditional English dish- he really put a smile on the faces of the people. Depp was at the pub till the evening, when he went on to have conversations with others around the pub. Interestingly, the actor had been in the United Kingdom for quite a few days. He also went on to shock his fans with a performance alongside his friend Jeff Beck back in Sheffield. 

Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck did serenade their fans with quite a few hit numbers. This included ‘Isolation’ by John Lennon, ‘Little Wing’ by Jimi Hendrix, and Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’. A few days after that, he was with his friend in London as a part of their tour. There they delighted their fans at the Royal Albert Hall with a rousing ovation.
