Sharon Osbourne said the lawsuit between her friend Johnny Depp and Amber Heard was “ugly for both of them”, but hopes they can move on from it.
merican actor Depp won his multimillion-dollar defamation case against former partner and Aquaman star Heard last week, over a 2018 op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post, which his lawyers said falsely accused him of physically and sexually abusing her.
Speaking about the court case, TV presenter Osbourne, 69, told Lorraine Kelly on her ITV morning show: “Its very very ugly, for both of them.
“Listen, what goes on at home between two people, nobody knows, all the ugly details.
“We all have our ugliness in our relationships but theirs was extreme – hopefully they can move on.”
Following the high-profile lawsuit in Fairfax County, Virginia, which lasted a total of six weeks, jurors found in favour of Depp.
Osbourne added that it was an “amazing night” watching Depp on stage with Jeff Beck, who has joined the musician for the remainder of his UK tour.
“It was incredible,” she said.
The actor, who collaborated with Beck on the 2020 track Isolation, previously surprised audiences and fans when he joined the musician on stage in Sheffield and at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Depp was mobbed by fans in Glasgow after his fifth performance at the Royal Concert Hall following victory in his US defamation lawsuit.
They will perform in Birmingham at the Symphony Hall on Monday.
