HE WROTE A SONG FOR HEARD
Depp, who gave many concerts to celebrate his victory after the lawsuit, signed a remarkable song on the new album of his close friend British guitarist Jeff Beck. According to The Sunday Times, Depp wrote the song “Sad Motherf-kin’ Parade” for Amber Heard, with whom he had an eventful breakup.
“YOU SIT LIKE A DOG WITH AN ITCH”
Stating that the phrase “You’ve been sitting like a dog with an itch for seven years” in the lyrics was written in reference to Heard, the British newspaper stated that the actress targeted her ex-wife. The words “If I had a penny, it wouldn’t reach your hand” in the same song are also thought to point to Heard.
DID NOT LIKE THE CASE DECISION
Amber Heard, who lost the defamation case brought against her by her ex-husband Johnny Depp, applied to the court to withdraw the verdict with a 43-page motion prepared by her lawyers.
