Johnny Depp was reportedly escorted out of a hotel on Monday, June 6 by security to 'keep him safe' from the swarms of fans who have been following him since his trial with ex-wife Amber Heard concluded last week. This week, photos of the actor being escorted out of The Grand Hotel Birmingham, England, while holding a coffee mug went viral. According to a source, his security team kept him safe and away from "large crowds."

"Everywhere he goes, he's mobbed by fans," a source told to PageSix. The 58-year-old 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star appeared disheveled in the photos as he was escorted out of the luxurious hotel by one man holding his right arm and another following closely behind. Page Six had a caption in their story about Depp looking 'worse for wear' and a title stating he 'needed assistance', leading to rumors that the star may have been drunk at the time. However, those allegations have been debunked now. Depp wore a black and white checkered blazer with black pants and black sneakers, as well as a scarf, unkempt hair, and aviator sunglasses. He held a ceramic coffee mug in his left hand, although it was unclear what was inside. He was seen waving to and acknowledging his fans as well.

Recently, the actor splurged more than $62,000 (£50,000) on a spectacular Indian feast fit for a king and his entourage of approximately 20 hours before the sighting. Authentic Indian cuisine, numerous cocktails, and loads of rosé were served at the Varanasi celebration dinner. Before entering the fancy eatery, Depp and his crew posed for photographs with fans, according to the Daily Mail.

Jeff Beck, 77, a friend and musical partner of the "Edward Scissorhands" performer, was one of those who attended the feast. Depp has been enjoying having his "life back" since winning his major defamation case in which he was granted a $10.35 million verdict. He only joined TikTok in June and made his first video, in which he thanked his supporters for their support and expressed his wish to move on from the trial.

Depp's lawyers, Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew, went on two interviews to share their opinions on the sweeping verdict for their celebrity client. During their chat with Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos Chew revealed that Depp was "over the moon" on hearing the news of his win and added, "It was like the weight of the world had been taken off his shoulders and I feel like finally after six years, he's gotten his life back."
