A source close to the show’s production recently revealed that Depp will make a surprise appearance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The source also noted that Depp was in talks to promote the network’s Moonman mascot at the event.
Simply put, the 59-year-old star can wear a silver astronaut statuette suit where a winner is awarded at the VMA.
According to a source, the actor, who is an actor from the Pirates of the Caribbean, appeared at the awards ceremony and said, “I’m really excited.” Plus she says Depp is ‘preparing for a comeback’.
Depp wasn’t nominated for an award, but he bagged five Moonmen statues throughout his career. He won the 2012 Best Male Performance, Best Villain, Global Superstar and Generation Awards.
News about Depp’s possible appearance came months after he won a defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. It is also the record for the first appearance on camera since winning.
A Virginia jury found Heard guilty of defaming Depp in 2018, alleging domestic and sexual assault. The 36-year-old actress was ordered to pay him $15 million.
Also, Depp will wear a director’s hat for an upcoming biographical film based on Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.
