A video filmed by a spectator shows the standing ovation the actor received after performing on stage with Jeff Beck at Sage Gateshead, in the north of England.
Actor Johnny Depp emerged victorious Wednesday from his bitter and highly publicized lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, even though the jurors concluded that the two Hollywood stars had mutually defamed each other through the press.
After some 13 hours of deliberations in a court near Washington, the jury ruled in favor of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor on all three grounds of his libel suit, awarding him $15 million in damages .
Clearly, they unanimously felt that Amber Heard, 36, had made false statements by describing herself as a victim of domestic violence, and that she had acted “with malicious intent”.
The seven jurors – five men and two women – also ruled that Johnny Depp, 58, had defamed Amber Heard, awarding her $ 2 million in financial compensation.
The 36-year-old actress, present in court, welcomed the verdict with a serious face, seeming to accuse the blow. His lawyer said she would say on appeal of the verdict.
