Johnny Depp finally celebrates defamation trial win
The 58-year-old actor celebrated his dramatic victory in the defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Johnny wore a black and white plaid jacket and one of his distinctive scarves as he was greeted by an army of fans in front of the hotel.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star was joined by singer Jeff Beck, with whom he performed on a tour of Great Britain. Apparently in a good mood after winning last week's trial, Johnny waved to his fans as a pair of bodyguards escorted him out of the hotel. The group enjoyed a banquet of Indian cuisine specially prepared for them, with cocktails and champagne made of roses. Insiders report that Johnny Depp paid $ 63,000 for 25 people.

The restaurant was closed to all other customers, while Depp and his support team received personalized service and personal attention during their five-hour stay, leaving around midnight. Mohamed Hussein, CEO of Varanasi, which is considered one of the leading Indian restaurants in the UK, told reporters:
"On Sunday afternoon, we received an invitation from the clear sky, when we were informed that Johnny Depp wanted to come to lunch with a group of people. I was shocked. But then his security team came and checked the restaurant and we let them take the whole place because we were worried that other visitors might disturb them. Depp was a very sweet, down-to-earth guy who spent a lot of time talking to the staff and was happy to take pictures with them. You would never think he was such a big star. He had enough time for all of us."
Mr. Hussein said chefs at the restaurant had prepared a special banquet for Depp and his group, which included appetizers and traditional Indian festive dishes. However, they say that Depp ended his meal with panna cotta and cheesecake. "We earned more money from Depp's visit than from our busiest night of the week, Saturday, when we have about 400 guests," the restaurant director boasted, without stating the exact amount, as agreed with Depp's team.
