Johnny Depp has been the subject of much controversy in recent years, but he has still managed to garner a significant amount of support from those closest to him.
Depp was recently found not guilty in a libel case against British tabloid The Sun, who had accused him of domestic abuse. The verdict was a huge victory for Depp, who had maintained his innocence throughout the trial.
However, others have also spoken out in support of Depp, including his ex-partners Winona Ryder and Kate Moss, as well as actor Javier Bardem and musician Sia. All four have publicly declared their support for Depp, with Ryder even testifying in court on his behalf.
On the eve that the verdict was announced, Depp was spotted hanging out with Sam Fender in Newscastle, with the UK musician calling Depp one of his “heroes”. Fender has since taken to social media to express his support for Depp, writing that he “stands with Johnny”.
Other celebrities have also come out in support of Depp, including actor Amber Heard, who has been in a long-standing legal battle with Depp. Heard has publicly stated that she “respects the verdict” and wishes Depp “the best”.
Depp’s supporters have also included his fans, who have long been vocal in their support of the actor. Many of them have taken to social media to express their delight at the verdict, with some even organizing protests in support of Depp.
It is clear that Johnny Depp has a strong support base, both from those closest to him and from his fans. With the recent verdict in his favor, it is likely that this support will only continue to grow.
