The defamation trial for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ended last month, but the drama surrounding the ex-couple still rages on. A song on Depp’s new album pokes fun at Heard amid allegations that she has called for the conviction to be dismissed due to a mistrial. Another track appears to talk about the trial as well.
After Sunday Times published a review of the CD, one of its tracks seemed to have become highly popular. Sad M***********n’ Parade by Johnny has lyrics that seem to be about Amber, according to the song’s title. The lines that are thought to be about his ex-wife are: “You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch. If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand.”
The album comprises two of Depp’s original songs, which he recorded over three years, as well as 13 covers of songs by Motown musicians such as The Beach Boys, Killing Joke, John Lennon, and the Velvet Underground. Jeff Beck and Johnny worked together on the album. After his Virginia trial, the actor accompanied the guitarist at his recent shows in the UK.
According to reports, the actor also has plans to make theatrical appearances during Beck’s upcoming European tour. The court should declare a mistrial and order a new trial, Amber’s attorneys said in a recent filing. According to the document, the prosecution may have had the wrong jury, so the request for a new trial has been made.
