Fans had been showering Johnny Depp with gifts and flowers on all the days of his trial. His fans also made posters for the actor that they held out when he entered and left the London High Court. They would also chant ‘Justice for Johnny’ and were often heard encouraging the actor to stay strong. Thus, Johnny Depp decided to thank his fans for their unwavering support.
The gesture from the actor was highly appreciated by his fans. While posting pictures of the gift on Twitter, a user mentioned that the world ‘doesn’t deserve’ Johnny Depp. The user wrote, “The notes aren't printed but each & every note is hand written by him. This world don't deserve him. I don't know a better man & that's on PERIOD.” [sic]
According to news agency AP, in closing arguments at the three-week trial, Depp's lawyer, David Sherborne, said the actor strongly denied "this reputation-destroying, career-ending allegation.” “He has never hit a woman in his entire life — period, full stop, nada," Sherborne said.
According to a report in AP, Judge Andrew Nicol will retire later to consider his verdict. He is expected to hand down his ruling in several weeks. NGN's lawyer, Sasha Wass, had mentioned in her summing-up that there was no doubt Depp “regularly and systematically abused his wife" and so the “wife-beater” label was justified.
Johnny Depp is suing a publication and its executive editor over an article that called him a ‘wife-beater’. The article also referred to have ‘evidence’ that Johnny Depp attacked Amber Heard. Johnny Depp denies hitting his then-wife, while Amber Heard, 34, has submitted details of 14 occasions during their relationship when the actor has assaulted her. The paper has to prove that the allegations that they made against the actor are substantially true. According to reports, the verdict of the libel trial will be out in October.
