Johnny Depp’s appearance at Savage X Fenty follows his surprise appearance at the MTV VMAs, following his defamation trial with Amber Heard.
He made a brief appearance in the show’s opening, with his face digitally superimposed on a floating moon person’s helmet.
Johnny Depp appeared again as the show returned from commercial, quipping, “Hey VMAs, let’s get back to the f-ing music, shall we?”,” Depp told the crowd at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Heard’s appearance comes months after a jury sided mostly with Johnny Depp in a case that found she defamed him in her 2018 Washington Post op-ed on domestic violence, even though she did not mention him by name. He won more than $10 million in damages, while Heard won $2 million on one of her three defamation countersuit claims.
When Heard officially appealed the verdict, Johnny Depp’s legal team announced that they would also appeal her countersuit verdict. Judge Penney Azcarate denied Heard’s request for a mistrial.
