Paul McCartney appeared to support his longtime pal, Johnny Depp, at his concert Tuesday night as the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star’s battle against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, rages on in court.
The Beatle, 79, performed his song, “My Valentine,” during the Seattle stop of his Get Back Tour and played the music video for the track, which features Depp, 58.
McCartney asked Depp to star in it alongside Natalie Portman when the video was originally released in 2012. In it, he does sign language along to the song’s lyrics.
Jill Vedder, who was in the audience for the Seattle show, posted clips of that part of the concert, captioning it on Instagram, “Might be controversial to post this video with J.D
The American philanthropist, who said she also knows Depp personally, added, “Know him only to be a gentleman .. And while I support women and the ‘me too’ movement I also know some women who have destroyed the lives of innocent & good men. .. @johnnydepp … p.s verbal abuse is not cool either.. watch your tongue.”
It is unclear if McCartney meant to play the music video on a big screen to publicly honor his friend as he endures a difficult time or if the clip has always been a part of his tour, which began last week.
However, a source told Page Six that several of McCartney’s music videos played out in the background throughout the night.
A rep for the “Let It Be” singer did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
McCartney and Depp have been longtime friends and musical collaborators.
McCartney also appeared in the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” film.
Depp is suing Heard, 36, for defamation over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed piece she wrote, in which she detailed her experience as a survivor of sexual violence.
Although the “Aquaman” actress did not name her ex-husband in the article, she previously made abuse allegations against him in a restraining order she filed in 2016 and has maintained he abused her in the current 2022 trial.
Depp and Heard were married from 2015 to 2017.
