Johnny Depp has shed light on the incident where he cut off his finger while greeting fans at his final Jeff Beck appearance, shortly after winning his defamation case against Amber Heard.

It was revealed this week that Depp, 58, had taken the win in his trial of Heard, 36, in which the Pirates of the Caribbean star awarded $15 million (£11.96 million) in damages.

During the hearing, he shared graphic details about a previous injury he sustained when the tip of one of his fingers was severed by a vodka bottle after his ex-wife reportedly threw two bottles of vodka at him.

Photos from the night of the incident were shown in court, and Depp was given stitches in the hospital at the time.

On Thursday night, Edward Scissorhands star performed at Beck’s performance, his first appearance since the jury’s verdict.

He was filmed greeting and speaking to fans outside the performance, at one point bending over to gesture to a fan’s hand saying, “You’ve got five. I have four and seven eighths. Angry.’

The person who filmed the interaction, who uses the Twitter handle @tinyspookyghoul, wrote: “I can’t believe I just met Johnny Depp. He was so genuinely sweet and drew for me, what a legend!’

When Depp arrived on stage to perform, Beck announced to the audience, “There’s someone here. You may not know who it is…’

According to MailOnline, in a nod to Depp’s lawsuit the day before, he exclaimed, “What a result. What a result!’

As with their previous shows, the pair performed a selection of rock ballad covers together.

They plan to release an album together in July, after being friends for five years.

The duo are said to have announced the news during their performance at Gateshead, when Beck said: ‘I met this man five years ago and we’ve never stopped laughing since. We even made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July,” the BBC reported.

Depp’s trial of Heard began when he sued his ex-wife for $50 million (£39.93 million) after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which she spoke about her experiences with domestic violence.

Although he was not named in the article, his team argued that he was implying that he was sexually and physically abusive in their relationship, which he denied.

The Aquaman actress later sued her ex-husband, alleging that he defamed her by calling her a liar and demanded $100 million (£79.86 million) in damages.

The former couple was married from 2015 to 2017.
