Johnny Depp WON’T be in court when trial verdict is read

Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard are awaiting the jury’s verdict in their defamation case.

The closing arguments were delivered on Friday after which the seven jurors were instructed to begin their legal deliberations.

A verdict is expected imminently – however, neither party are expected to be in the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia. For Johnny, it seems, life is moving forward. The actor is currently in the UK – and made a surprise appearance on stage on Sunday night to perform alongside Jeff Beck at a gig in Sheffield.
