Since Johnny Depp won his six-year defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, he has kept a low profile. The actor is working on his well-being and figuring out his next steps. However, he went antique shopping, and fans had a few things to say about his outfit.

“Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp recently survived a six-year defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, who accused him of domestic violence.

The former couple married in 2015 in a private island ceremony. However, their marriage was short-lived and ended after 15 months.

Heard cited inconceivable differences and filed a temporary restraining order against Depp after accusing him of domestic violence.

Heard and Depp’s divorce was finalized in 2016, and the two reached a settlement of $7 million. But the downward spiral began when Depp sued his ex-wife for defamation in 2019 due to an article she wrote with the Washington Post in 2018 accusing him of sexual abuse.

The court proceeding started on April 11, 2022, and both parties blamed each other for physical, emotional, and mental abuse.

Things kept getting worse as the two actors now had to peel off every layer of their relationship in front of the court. But the trial ended on June 1 in favor of Depp. The jury found that Heard referring to herself as a victim of sexual abuse in the article was defamatory.

In return, Heard was expected to pay $10.4 million, but the actress reportedly cannot afford to give Depp that much money.

One week after the defamation trial ended, Depp was awarded $15 million from the jury for damages. His lawyers, Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew were invited to Good Morning America to discuss their big win.

The attorneys clarified that the case was never about money for the actor; instead, Depp wanted to focus on restoring his reputation.

Depp also released a statement of his own after he won the case. He looked back at how his and his children’s lives were changed six years ago by false yet serious and damaging allegations.

He spoke about the amount of hate he received from the media, but he was grateful to the court for giving him his life back.

The actor ended his statement by writing, “The best is yet to come, and a new chapter has finally begun. Veritas numquam perit. Truth never perishes.”

What Happened with Depp after the End of Battle?
Depp’s decision to fight for his reputation was not about the money but his career. The actor has always cared about his profession, so there was no way he was letting anything ruin his hard work.

Now that the actor won his life-changing case, he’s reportedly working towards returning to our screens. But before getting into the swing of work again, Depp is focused on himself and his mental and physical well-being.

An insider revealed that Depp was not focusing on events of the past. He had his head forward and was trying his hardest to stay away from any negativity. The insider said the actor was happy and relieved about the verdict.

The actor is now slowly easing into his next moves, and simultaneously busking in the feeling of having the weight he carried for six years lifted off his shoulders.

Three months after the verdict, another source revealed that Depp was in a good place and had even started dating again.

Even though Depp is doing well, he recently made a public appearance, and fans had a few things to say about his outfit.

The owner of Hemswell Antique Centres, Robert Miller, who has been running the store for over 20 years said Depp was very down to earth.

Miller said the actor’s visit was pleasant because it was his relaxed, normal self. He spent a lot of time browsing the guitars, playing them and made himself at home.

Miller also added how amazing it was to see a Depp walk into his store, “For someone like that to come through our doors is brilliant.” he said. He even believed that Depp’s experience was so good that he would certainly return to buy more guitars.

However, the photos from Depp’s antique store visit had some fans judging the actor’s style and others thinking it was the perfect vintage shopping attire.

A lot of fans expressed how happy they were for Depp’s win. He was described as a beautiful human being, now free to live his life without needing to hide.

Other fans praised him for fighting and dodging the most life-threatening bullet from that six-year case. His supporters also wished him the best of luck in his new chapter.

On the flip side, fans still shared the same heartwarming sentiments but were confused about Depp’s clothing.

One user said they did not understand why the actor wore such “horrid clothes” when he’s such a good-looking man. But he was still praised for pulling his unconventional fashion style off.

Other users thought Depp’s outfit was the perfect antique shopping gear, while others bluntly said the actor looked homeless.

Nonetheless, fans thought the actor looked homeless and happy at the same time and were simply excited to see him out and about again.

Depp wore an all-gray outfit, his jacket looked worn out with a few holes, and the pants looked like patched denim with the unfinished hems popping out.

He finished the look with a blue denim hat, checkered scarf, maroon hand gloves, and his classic pair of blue glasses.
