Johnny Depp is busy traveling abroad while performing with Jeff Beck.
The 59-year-old actor was photographed Sunday in Italy getting out of a van with a woman as he continues touring overseas after releasing an album Friday. Depp was spotted helping the woman with her bag as they exited the vehicle and he headed to rehearsals.
The last time we saw Johnny Depp, he was on tour with Jeff Beck promoting his collaborative record, and then boom! Pictures of Mr. Sparrow with a mysterious redhead that some confused to be Jeff Beck’s drummer, but it seems all speculations were wrong.
It turns out that Mr. Depp is perfecting his French for a new flick and as we predicted before it was just smoke, and the artificial kind, like the one that comes out of fog machines. They were both seen coming and going to rehearsals, and people immediately started speculating about Johnny’s romantic life and the Hollywood phenomenon still seems single.
Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp attended the Umbria Jazz Festival and there is where all the pictures were snapped by the photographers and paparazzi.
During the performance, Depp and Beck performed many songs from the 18th album which features a few songs that he composed during difficult times with ex-wife Amber Heard
The upcoming movie is called Jeanne Du Barry where Depp will play Louis XV so that is why perfecting his French, the movie is about Jeanne Du Barry, an illegitimate daughter of a seamstress that made her way into Louis XV’s court and became his mistress.
The Depp sighting, one of many in recent weeks as he goes from one concert to another, comes as his ex-wife Amber Heard had her request for a mistrial denied by the judge, who ruled that the verdict in their Virginia defamation trial still stands.
On June 1, the verdict was handed down from the seven-person jury, siding mostly with Depp and awarding him over $10 million in damages. Heard, 36, was awarded $2 million for one of her defamation countersuit claims.
She called the verdict a “setback” to a “time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated.” Heard said she was “sad I lost this case” but “I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly.”
Depp, meanwhile, celebrated the outcome, saying in a statement that “the jury gave me my life back.” He added, “My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought. From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome.”
“The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun,” the actor concluded.
When she did a post-trial sit-down interview with Savannah Guthrie for NBC News, Heard said she has “no ill will” toward Depp “at all.” She said, “I love him. I loved him with all my heart, and I tried the best I could to make a deeply broken relationship work and I couldn’t.”
Heard admitted, “I did do and say horrible, regrettable things throughout my relationship. I behaved in horrible, almost unrecognizable to myself ways.
I freely and openly and voluntarily talked about what I did. I talked about the horrible language. I talked about being pushed to the extent where I didn’t even know the difference between right and wrong.”
“I will always continue to feel like I was a part of this, like I was the other half of this relationship because I was. And it was ugly, and could be very beautiful. It was very, very toxic,” she continued. “We were awful to each other.”
Depp recently reached a settlement in another legal battle that was lodged against him, this one involving a film crew member named Gregg “Rocky” Brooks who alleged that Depp assaulted him on the set of the movie City of Lies back in 2017, which the actor denied. The settlement came just weeks before they were set to go to a civil trial in Los Angeles on July 25.
Since Depp and Brooks settled the suit, the judge agreed to put off the upcoming trial until Jan. 5. Though the filing did not publicly reveal the specific things Depp must do in order to fulfill his end of the agreement, if he complies the case will be dismissed.
