Johnny Depp spends $62K at Birmingham Indian restaurant to celebrate win against ex-wife

Actor Johnny Depp, who just won his highly-publicized defamation claim against ex-wife Amber Heard, spent more than $62,000 on a special celebratory dinner with his friends, New York Post reported. The celebratory dinner was organized in Birmingham, England, on Sunday evening, the Post further said.

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ star was recently awarded $15 million by a court in Fairfax, Virginia, last Wednesday in the defamation case against Ms. Heard. 

Depp, 58, indulged with “authentic Indian cuisine,” cocktails, and rose champagne at Varanasi, billed as “Birmingham’s largest Indian restaurant.” 

After his security team checked the city center facility, which can seat 400 people at a time, to ensure it was secure and that his privacy could be maintained, he hugged and spoke to the staff. 

“We had a call out of the blue on Sunday afternoon saying that Johnny Depp wanted to come to eat with a group of people,” Mohammed Hussain, operations director of Varanasi, told the Post. 

“I was shocked, and at first, I thought it might have been a joke. But then his security team arrived and checked out the restaurant, and we let them have the whole place because we were concerned that he might be bothered by other diners,” Hussain added. 

Depp stayed there for around three hours and met the manager’s friends and family then left with a takeaway bag, reported. 

The star was declared a “down-to-earth bloke” by the restaurant staff. The “Edward Scissorhands” star was hanging out with musician friend and guitarist Jeff Beck, 77, and 20 other people. 

Depp has been in the United Kingdom since before the verdict and also performed along with Beck.
