Johnny Depp racks up over four million TikTok followers in one day | Ents & Arts News

In just 24 hours, Johnny Depp has amassed over 4.4 million followers on TikTok – and over three million have joined without him posting a single piece of content.

The actor’s biography on his verified profile reads “Occasional Thespian.”

Depp58, who won his libel case against his ex-wife Amber Heard less than a week ago thanked his fans for their support in the only video he has posted so far on the social media platform.

He called them “precious, loyal and steadfast”.

On clips of him playing in his band and waving to fans outside the court, he adds: “We saw it all together. We walked the same path together. We did the right thing together, all because you care.

“And now we’re all going to move forward together…

“My love and respect, JD. »

A jury found that a 2018 article Heard wrote for The Washington Post about her experiences as a survivor of domestic violence was defamatory and awarded Depp $10.35m (£8.2m) in damages.

Heard won on one count of her counterclaim, successfully arguing that Depp’s publicist defamed her by claiming her allegations were “a hoax of abuse” aimed at capitalizing on the #movement MeToo.

The jury awarded him $2m (£1.5m) in damages.

Johnny Depp joins Jeff Beck on stage

Depp was not in court for the jury’s findings last Wednesday and instead toured the UK with musician Jeff Beck.

On Sunday evening he booked an entire curry house with 300 seats in Birmingham for £50,000.

Depp and Beck arrived with about two dozen members of their tour crew from 7:30 p.m., enjoying a three-course dinner of chicken tikka shashlik, vegetable samosas and a king prawn entrée.

They took photos with the staff, with operations manager Mo Hussain saying Depp was “very humble” and left a “big tip”.
