However, things took a big downturn in 2018, when an OpEd was published in The Washington Post. Depp was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The actor was dropped by a number of studios and lost out on many upcoming projects, including an untitled Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and the third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Depp sued Heard for $50 million for defamation, and Heard countersued him. In the end, a jury awarded Depp more than $10 million in damages.

It’s been more than a year since the trial ended, and Depp has tried to get his life back to normal. He has acted in a couple of movies and has been touring the world with his band, Hollywood Vampires. Depp is one of the founding members of the group, whose other members include Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Tommy Henriksen.

Local media assured that hours before the interpreter of Jack Sparrow was drinking and would have said he felt bad.¬†Even he was not part of the soundcheck: ¬ęEverything was set, the stage was set, the backstage team was ready to party.¬†It never occurred to anyone that there might be a problem, especially since the band members had done the sound check.¬†Nobody thought about the fact that Johnny Depp did not participate.¬†The microphone on him was installed by a staff member, but that’s not unusual for such stars,” an attendee told the newspaper
