Johnny Depp doesn’t seem to want to leave Britain any time soon as he performed with Jeff Beck for the third night in a row.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor is currently awaiting a verdict in his libel lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, after an explosive six-week trial that exposed the harsh details of his former marriage.

However, on Tuesday, 58-year-old Depp forced his legal woes off the stage as he reunited with Beck, 77, and his band at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

With a white guitar draped across his body, Depp looked overjoyed as he sang in front of an audience wearing a peaked hat and a waistcoat and several scarves with a white shirt with rolled up sleeves.

As the gig closed, Depp and Beck shared a warm hug on stage before the actor saluted the audience.

It was the second time the pair shared the stage at the Royal Albert Hall after Depp’s surprise cameo on Monday, where they received a standing ovation. Depp also performed with the musician at his Sheffield City Hall show on Sunday.

About 4,000 miles away in Fairfax, Virginia, a seven-person jury continues its deliberations to decide whether Heard defames Depp in his 2018 article published in The Washington Post.

In the op-ed, Heard discussed her experience with domestic abuse, but did not name Depp in the article. However, Depp’s lawyers argue that the article explicitly referred to the actor and suggested that he was physically and sexually abusing the Aquaman actress.

Depp filed suit against Heard seeking $50 million in damages, but she is suing Depp for $100 million.

on Tuesday, The jury asked the judge a question regarding the article after four hours of deliberation.

He asked Judge Penny Azcarte to clarify whether he should consider the entire article or just the title.

The title of the article read: ‘I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. It has to be changed.

According to Deadline, Judge Azkare said: ‘I think the confusion came in this particular because the statement in question is the title of the op-ed, so I think they are confused whether it is the entire op-ed or not the title statement. .

‘It is clear that the title is the statement.’
