‘The best is yet to come’ Johnny Depp statement in full after winning defamation trial | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Johnny Depp has said he feels “at peace” after a jury determined the actor had won the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The Pirates of the Caribbean star said he was “truly humbled”.

In a statement given to the New York Post, Mr Depp’s spokesperson said: “Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed.”

“All in the blink of an eye.

“False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me.

“It had already travelled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career.

“And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled.

“My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought.

“From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome.

“Speaking the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all those who have remained steadfast in their support of me.

“I feel at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that.

“I am, and have been, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and the colossal support and kindness from around the world.

“I hope that my quest to have the truth be told will have helped others, men or women, who have found themselves in my situation, and that those supporting them never give up.

“I also hope that the position will now return to innocent until proven guilty, both within the courts and in the media.

“I wish to acknowledge the noble work of the Judge, the jurors, the court staff and the Sheriffs who have sacrificed their own time to get to this point, and to my diligent and unwavering legal team who did an extraordinary job in helping me to share the truth.

“The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun. Veritas numquam perit.

“Truth never perishes.”

Amber Heard similarly released her own statement following the verdict.

The actress said she is “disappointed with what this verdict means for other women”.

She said: “The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.

“I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly.”

Britney Spears, 40, flaunts stunning figure in blue bikini as fans express concerns | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Britney Spears, 40, showcased her stunning bikini figure in her latest Instagram snap.

The singer looked amazing in the tiny blue print bikini as she posed resting on her knees on a Mexican beach.

She left her taut stomach on full display, while she covered her face with large black shades.

Britney had sand on her stomach and hands as she smiled for her latest snap.

She captioned the post in view of her 41.2 million Instagram followers: “MEXICO!!”

Britney also included several Mexican flag emojis, but this didn’t stop fans taking to the comments to express their concerns as the star continues to post the same pictures, instead of new images.

A few people even suggested that she is no longer in control of her own account and someone else is scrolling through her old posts and reusing them.

Santa.spears said: “Always old things 🙁 I love her, but I stopped believing she is in control of her instagram since march. I don’t think she’s 100% free.

“But this topic is too unpopular to be addressed.” (sic)

Akioharada2 added: “people wake up. Britney is not free. They are always posting the same stuff because they no longer have content about her anymore.

“Unfortunately she is still a prisoner and surrounded by conspiracy people. Wake up and be resented. “BRITNEY IS NOT FREE AND EVERYTHING THAT LAST POSTED GIVES THE CONFIRMATION !!!! #freebritney #whereisbrirney.” (sic)

In November last year, after a highly-publicised legal battle, Britney was given back control over her finances, and medical and personal decisions with the termination of her 13-year-long conservatorship.

She received an outpouring of support from her die-hard fans who helped start the #FreeBritney movement, which is thought to have helped free the star from her father Jamie Spears.

Many fans did take to the comments however to compliment the singer on her stunning figure.

Bibi_moon3 said: “It’s Britney beach!”

Brad_c2012 added: “I just love your smile these are your true smile showing peace and happiness this is the smile I love…” (sic)

Amanda Holden, 51, stunned in orange as she sported an orange mini dress for today’s radio show.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge worked the tight fitted mini dress, leaving her long, toned legs on full display.

Amanda wore a white long-sleeved frilly blouse underneath, bringing an office-style look to her attire.

She styled the outfit with stiletto heels, showcasing her enviable pins even more.

The television personality couldn’t resist posting her usual catwalk video in view of her 1.8 million Instagram followers.

She captioned the video: “The future’s bright… the future’s [orange emoji].”

Amanda is known for putting on a leggy display and yesterday was no different as she showed off her attire for the second live Britain’s Got Talent.

She stunned in a daring violet gown which was by designer Suzanne Neville.

The singer put her perfectly tanned legs on full display thanks to the daring, thigh-high split on the side of the garment.

Not wanting to risk her modesty, the gap was secured by two glitzy diamante bands at the top of her leg, protecting the star from a wardrobe malfunction.

Zendaya’s Birthday Tribute to Tom Holland Will Make You Feel Euphoric

Can you think of a more marvel-ous birthday tribute?

Zendaya celebrated her boyfriend Tom Holland‘s 26th birthday on June 1 with a super message on Instagram. Sharing a never-before-seen photo of the couple, the actress, 25, wrote, “Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest <3.” 

All together now: Awwwww! 

This isn’t the first time Zendaya and Tom have shown each other some love on the ‘gram. The Euphoria star expressed how proud she was of “my Spider-Man” ahead of the release of their 2021 movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. And Tom celebrated “an incredible achievement for the most incredible person” when Zendaya received the Fashion Icon honor at that year’s CFDA Awards.  

Of course, they support each other off the web, too. Whether they’re attending red carpet events together or enjoying romantic date nights, the two continue to make fans swoon. 

Still, Tom and Zendaya typically call on the superpower of invisibility when it comes to their romance. They sparked dating rumors for years, but insisted they were just friends—until they were photographed kissing in a car last summer.

Jada Pinkett Smith Talks “Hope” for Will Smith & Chris Rock After Slap

Jada also touched on the idea of healing during the season five premiere of Red Table Talk, which she co-hosts alongside daughter Willow Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield Norris. On the April 20 episode, the first since the slap, the Facebook Watch show opened with a title card reading: “With all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing. Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared at The Table when the time comes.”

On the latest episode of her show, Jada and her family spoke to Niki Ball, whose 12-year-old daughter Rio Allred was diagnosed with alopecia and died by suicide after she was severely bullied for the skin condition. Recounting her thoughts after seeing what transpired on Oscars night, Niki voiced her beliefs that the incident sparked an important conversation about alopecia and how “it’s not a joke.”

Will, for his part, has apologized to Chris for the slap. He said in a statement on March 28, “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong.”

He added, “I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”

Early last month, Deborah broke the news to her followers that she did not know how long she had left after a brutal battle with stage four bowel cancer.

Speaking about her health struggles as she receives end of life care, Deborah went on to say that things had been “up and down” recently. 

Elliot Page Shares His “Biggest Joy” After Transitioning

In addition, he shared painful memories from the early days of his career. For instance, he said he was forced to wear a dress to the premiere of his 2007 movie Juno at the Toronto International Film Festival. 

“I can’t pinpoint a ‘worst’ day,” Elliot said. “But when Juno was blowing up—this sounds strange to people, and I get that people don’t understand. ‘Oh, f–k you, you’re famous, and you have money, and you had to wear a dress, boo-hoo.’ I don’t not understand that reaction. But that’s mixed with: I wish people would understand that that s–t literally did almost kill me.”

Elliot also said he could “pretty much not leave whatever hotel” he was staying in when he was filming the 2010 movie Inception

“I struggled with food. Intense depression, anxiety, severe panic attacks. I couldn’t function,” he shared. “There were days when I’d only have one meeting, and I’d leave my house to go to the meeting and have to turn around. Not being able to get through a script—could not. Reading is one of my favorite things to do—I couldn’t read, couldn’t get through a paragraph.”
