Billie Eilish has referenced Johnny Depp’s libel lawsuit against Amber Heard in an unreleased song she performed for fans on her UK tour.
The 20-year-old pop star is currently in the UK for the world tour of her second album, Happier Than Ever.
During her set at Manchester’s AO Arena on Tuesday (June 7), Eilish debuted a new song titled ‘TV’.
The song, which is yet to be released, is a slow, melancholy tune with lyrics that reference Depp’s much-publicized trial against Heard that ended last week.
“The internet goes crazy watching movie stars on trial, while Roe v. Wade is about to be overruled,” Eilish sang sitting on a stool across from her brother and collaborator Finneas, who played acoustic guitar.
The ‘Bad guy’ singer introduced the song, telling the crowd, “This is one we just wrote and we just wanted to play it for you guys.”
Last week, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean won his high-profile libel case against his ex-wife Heard.
Depp has been in the UK performing concerts with musician Jeff Beck. Both recently announced that they will release a new album next month.
On Sunday (June 5), the duo closed the Varanasi restaurant in Birmingham to the publicas they were reportedly joined by 20 other friends to share a meal that racked up a bill of approximately £50,000.
On Wednesday (June 1), the jury shared their verdicts and found that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts.
The jury found that Heard defamed Depp on all three charges and awarded him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Heard received $2 million in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.
Heard’s attorney recently appeared on morning talk shows to say that her client could not pay the US$8.35 million in damages to Depp.
