Keep on keeping on. Johnny Depp continues to perform overseas amid his ugly split from his estranged wife, Amber Heard. The Alice Through the Looking Glass actor performed with his rock band, Hollywood Vampires, at the Grona Lund Amusement Park in Stockholm, Sweden, on Monday, May 30.
The all-star rock band faced potential show boycotts in Sweden following Heard’s allegations that he was physically abusive throughout their marriage. Despite the threats, Depp was joined on stage by his bandmates Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
As previously reported, Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Depp on Monday May 23, after 15 months of marriage. On May 27, the Danish Girl actress was granted a temporary domestic restraining order against Depp. In court documents, Heard alleged that the actor abused her during her birthday party on April 21 and that he threw a cellphone at her face on May 21.
Following the claims, Depp’s ex Vanessa Paradis and the pair’s daughter, 17-year-old Lily-Rose Depp, came to the actor’s defense. (Depp and Paradis ended their 14-year romance in 2012, and are also parents to son Jack, 14.)
Paradis reportedly wrote a letter on May 27 about the situation. “In all the years I have known Johnny, he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I lived with for 14 wonderful years,” she wrote, according to TMZ.
Lily-Rose added via Twitter: “My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know. He’s been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same.”
Additionally, comedian Doug Stanhope accused Heard of lying about the abuse and even blackmailing the Oscar-nominated actor. Heard’s lawyer slammed the claims as “unequivocally false” in a letter to The Wrap. “Threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms,” Heard’s lawyer, Peter Sample, said in a statement. “Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified.”
