After three years of work, Pirates of the Carribean star Johnny Depp and English rock guitarist Jeff Beck will release their 13-track album called "18". It will go on sale 15 July, but the duo has already given fans a taste performing at several UK venues. The first show was the weekend after the Hollywood star's defamation trial against ex-wife Amber heard had wrapped up but the jury had yet to give a verdict.

The two began working on the album, mainly of covers but with two songs were written Depp, in 2019 at the actor's home in France. Beck says of '18' "It's almost like you've been through a record store and gone jumping from one genre to another."


Edward Scissorhands insert hand expected to fetch $50,000 at auction

The metal insert hand which Johnny Depp wore in Tim Burton's 1990 fantasy movie Edward Scissorhands is expected to fetch a fee of up to $50,000 in Propstore's Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction in Los Angeles next week. So far there have been three bids, with the top bid at $20,000. The auction ends on Tuesday 21 June.

The right insert hand consists of a rubber, resin and leather glove mounted on one side of a T-shaped metal armature to a wooden base. It comes with a letter of authenticity from the film's mechanical department coordinator, Richard Landon.

Edward Scissorhands, a boy with scissor-like fingers, used his blades to turn an ice angel into a snow flurry for his love interest Kim, played by Winona Ryder. Depp and Ryder were engaged for a while in real life, their three-year relationship ended in 1993.

A year ago, a pair of original scissorhand wardrobe glove props, worn by Johnny Depp in the film sold for $44,800 at Julien's “Hollywood Sci-Fi, Action, Fantasy and More Auction” in Beverly Hills.

I’ve been made aware that there are fake accounts pretending to be me or people working with me. 

I do not have any private or side accounts on any platforms. These are the only pages run by me and my team where we share updates and communicate:

Instagram @JohnnyDepp

TikTok @JohnnyDepp

Facebook @JohnnyDepp

Discord @JohnnyDepp0854.

I ask that you remain cautious as it seems these fake accounts can be relentless. My team is working to combat the problem. Thank you for your continued support and for making me aware of this issue! 

Love & respect, JD xx.

Heard tells NBC interview: "Binder" of medical notes suppressed

In case you missed it, Amber Heard's interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie was aired in full on Friday. Among the key things that Heard told Guthrie was her assertion that significant evidence supporting her case was not allowed into evidence in her defamation trial against Depp in Fairfax, Virginia. 

There’s a binder worth of years of notes dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of my relationship that were taken by my doctor, who I was reporting the abuse to," Heard told Depp.

Heard also said she is “terrified” Depp could sue her again for speaking out publicly about the case. “I took for granted what I assumed was my right to speak,” the 36-year-old actor said.

“I’m scared that, no matter what I do or what I say or how I say it, every step that I take will present another opportunity for this sort of silencing, which is what, I guess, a defamation lawsuit is meant to do - to take your voice.”

Depp v Heard, live updates: welcome

Hello and welcome to AS USA's daily live blog on the aftermath of the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard defamation case, in which Heard was found to have defamed Depp in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed.

The 36-year-old, who described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse" in the article, in which she didn't mention Depp by name, was ordered to pay her former husband $10.35m in damages. She also won on one count of her counter-suit against Depp, who must pay her $2m.
