Sir Paul McCartney facing controversy over showing Johnny Depp clip at Glastonbury

McCartney Depp controversy

Sir Paul McCartney is facing controversy for showing a clip of Johnny Depp during his history making Glastonbury Festival set.

The former Beatle, 80, showed the actor, 59, using sign language on a giant screen behind him as McCartney sung the track ‘My Valentine’ that went with the music video.

Depp, fresh from wining his defamation trial victory against ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, appeared in the 2012 video alongside actress Natalie Portman.

The clip featured Portman, 41, lip syncing to the music while Depp strummed an acoustic guitar, with the images also shown by the BBC in their coverage of the Worthy Farm festival.

It comes after McCartney – who made history on Saturday night (25.06.22) as the oldest solo performer to headline Glastonbury – used the footage in his recent US ‘Get Back’ tour, while ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ actor Depp was in the midst of his six-week defamation trial against Heard.

The rocker did not address Depp or his court case victory during his Glastonbury set, but the crowd erupted in cheers as soon as the actor appeared on screen.

Fans are now flooding social media to share mixed reactions to the playing of the clip.

Some say they were disappointed he appeared to be backing the actor, while others sided with Heard in her court fight against Depp.

But many others insist they loved seeing Depp during McCartney’s set.

One person wrote: “Deeply disappointed in both Paul McCartney and Glastonbury for the Johnny Depp video. Feel like it goes against everything Glastonbury stands for.”

Another hit out: “Not the cleverest thing to do. Paul – such a contentious judgement and a great way to alienate those who are not comfortable with the trial outcome.”

But one of his many supporters said: “To see Paul McCartney showing support for Johnny Depp at Glastonbury was brilliant. Well done to everyone involved.”

McCartney, who last week celebrated his 80th birthday, was joined at his Glastonbury appearance by Dave Grohl, 53, and 72-year-old Bruce Springsteen.

He also performed a duet with his late bandmate John Lennon on The Beatles’ 1970 single ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ thanks to technology from  director Peter Jackson, and waved the Ukraine flag in a show of solidarity with the war ravaged nation.

McCartney’s use of the clip of Depp comes after Heard admitted she can't afford the damages awarded in the case during an interview last week with ‘Dateline’.

Heard was ordered to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million  in punitive damages.

The second payment was reduced to $350,000by the judge, while Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages – meaning Depp walked away from the case with the ‘Aquaman’ actress owing him $8.35 million.

The Rolling Stones dedicate BST Hyde Park concert to late drummer Charlie Watts

Show dedicated to drummer

The Rolling Stones dedicated their Hyde Park concert to late drummer Charlie Watts.

The rock icons performed at American Express Presents BST Hyde Park on Saturday night (25.06.22) and frontman Sir Mick Jagger took a moment to remember Charlie, who died at the age of 80 in August 2021, before the band played 'Tumbling Dice'.

Mick, 78, said: "It’s lovely to be here. In 1962, we met a drummer from Wembley called Charlie Watts.

"And sadly, this is our first time in London without him. So, we would like to dedicate this show to Charlie."

The Rolling Stones formed in 1962 and their career-spanning concert celebrated their 60th anniversary.

Mick, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood kicked off proceedings with 'Street Fighting Man', and the classics kept coming as they played 'You Can't Always Get What You Want', 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking' and 'Honky Tonk Women' and 'Miss You'.

Guitarist Keith, 78, took lead vocals on 'Slipping Away' and 'Connection' and they closed their set with a host of greatest hits including 'Start Me Up', 'Gimme Shelter' and 'Jumpin' Jack Flash'.

Mick also thanked the crowd for making it to the gig even though there was a national rail strike.

He said: “Are you feeling alright? It’s great to be back home in London. I know that getting here has not been easy. I want to really thank the effort you have made for all to get here.

“And I want to welcome everyone who has come from out of town, like the Midlands, I know people come from the North of England, and people come from overseas.”

After briefly departing the stage the band returned for an encore of 'Sympathy for the Devil' and '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' which had the sell-out crowd singing along to every word of each song.

Tiffany Haddish slams Supreme Court ruling on abortion

Star slams abortion ruling

Tiffany Haddish believes the Supreme Court ruling on abortion is "a way to control women's bodies".

The 42-year-old comic found it "upsetting" when the landmark Roe v Wade ruling – which makes terminations illegal for millions of American women - was overturned on Friday (24.06.22) and feels women of colour will be particularly disadvantaged now states are able to set their own laws on abortion.

She said: "I think it's about locking up people of colour. I think it's a way to put more people in jail, and I also think it's a way to control women's bodies."

'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent' actress claimed she will make a move into politics purely so she can outlaw masturbation for men, insisting it should be the next logical step in the pro-life argument.

She told People magazine: "That's why I'm going to run for Congress. I'm going to write a bill to make it illegal for men to masturbate. How about that?

"If you're going to make it illegal for me to make choices with my body, then it should be illegal for you to masturbate because you killing people when you do that.

"Every time you jack off, that's, what? A billion people dead. No chance to live. I'm just saying. You touch yourself; you a murderer."

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old star is planning to become a parent through adoption but admitted the process is "very difficult" because she is black.

She said: "As a black woman, trying to adopt a white baby, it's hard out here. They won't let you. They let white people adopt black babies, Asian babies, Mexican babies, but they don't let black people do that. Why is that? Come on, people.

"But it's actually a joke, but that is a real topic we should be discussing out here on the streets, why you can't like interracially adopt when you're... That's a whole other situation."

But Tiffany's plans are on hold until she's got time in her work schedule to be a "present" parent.

Speaking ahead of the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards, she said: "Anyways, once I finish these two, I got two more movies to do and then I'll adopt.

"Because I want to be present. If I'm going to be a parent, I want to be a present parent."





James Brolin was 'scared' of being in front of the camera for 60 years

Brolin was camera shy

James Brolin says it took him "almost 50, 60 years" to feel comfortable on camera.

The 81-year-old acting and filmmaking legend - who got into the movie business after falling into commercials - might have a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame and two Golden Globes and an Emmy to his name, but that doesn't mean he's always been confident being filmed.

Speaking to Collider, he said: “One of the ways I accidentally backed into the business, even though I was fascinated with the business and I’d been a cinematographer and director, filmmaker since I was 15 years old, I was 18 and I was walking down the street and somebody stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, can I talk to you?’ And said, ‘Would you be interested in being in a commercial?’ And I said, ‘What would I have to do?’ And they said, ‘Well, all you gotta do is dress up like a young cowboy and drive this truck.’ And I said, ‘I wouldn’t have to talk, would I?’ And they said, ‘Nope! No talking.’ ‘What’s it pay? ‘$400.’

‘Oh, I’ll take that job!’ So that was with BBDO, the largest company in the United States that did that stuff. I did two Dodge, I did a Gallo Wine commercial and suddenly I had a Screen Actors Guild card, and this meant I had to be on the other side of the camera, the lens side, which just scared the wadding out of me. So I went on and I went to school. I tried to get rid of this feeling, and I’ve almost got it 50, 60 years later.”

Brolin's latest gig is voicing Zurg in Pixar's 'Lightyear', his first-ever voicing acting role in an animation.

The offer came off the back of his narration of the Netflix series 'Sweet Tooth'.

The Hollywood legend - who is married to Barbra Streisand and is the father of actor Josh Brolin - said: “I got assigned by a friend to narrate a series, eight episodes. And that was Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan. The series became a worldwide number one on streaming for a month and because of that, Pixar became aware of me and suddenly like, ‘Okay, yeah. That’s what he does for a living,’ and I’m pick of the week! The voice of the week! After all those years.”



Johnny Depp 'trying to settle' lawsuit

Depp trying to settle lawsuit

Johnny Depp is reportedly trying to settle an alleged assault case before it goes to court.

Gregg 'Rocky' Brooks filed court documents back in 2018, in which he accused the actor of "maliciously and forcefully" punching him twice in his ribs on the set of 'City of Lies' before saying he'd pay the location manager $100,000 to "punch [him] in the face" in April 2017.

The case is scheduled to go up before the courts next month, but sources told RadarOnline.com that Johnny's legal team have been "deep in negotiations" with the location manager's team up until late this week in a bit to settle the matter out of court.

However, a deal has not yet been agreed.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor previously requested the cast be dismissed after alleging he "feared for his safety" and that of director Brad Furman, arguing the alleged assault was in self defense and the "defense of others".

In Gregg's legal documents, the crew member slammed the 'Lone Ranger' star over his conduct, alleging he "was intentional and malicious and done for the purpose of causing plaintiff to suffer humiliation."

And he claimed Johnny's "intoxication and temper created a hostile, abusive and unsafe work environment," which eventually resulted in him being assaulted by Johnny during filming of the crime thriller when he tried to enforce a permit restriction during a late night of filming.

Gregg claimed he was eventually fired from the movie when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident.

His attorney, Arbella Azizian, said in a statement: "My client wants to make sure Mr. Depp is held accountable for his conduct on set so that, in the future, others will not be put in the same situation."

When reports of an alleged altercation were first raised earlier this year, director Brad Furman defended Johnny and praised the actor as a "consummate professional".

He said in a statement: "Johnny Depp is a consummate professional, great collaborator and a supporter of other artists.

"He always treats the crew and people around him with the utmost respect.

"Movies can be stressful, and nonevents often become exaggerated. We all love stories -- there isn't one here."

And Johnny himself previously claimed to have made amends with Gregg before the suit was filed.

He said during a deposition: "I had my assistant bring a bottle of wine. And we toasted in I think paper cups. And, you know, no harm, no foul. I apologised. He apologised. Gave him a hug. We embraced. You know, I hugged him. And everything was cool.

"As a matter of fact, he asked for a selfie with me. And so I took a selfie with him."



Cheryl Burke had an abortion at 18

Burke admits to abortion

Cheryl Burke had an abortion at the age of 18.

The 38-year-old dancer took to Instagram upon hearing the news that the landmark Roe v Wade ruling had been overturned and admitted that she was "saddened" by the decision to remove the constitutional right to abortion.

Speaking in the video, she said: "This is really hard for me to talk about. I am saddened by the news this morning and it weighs heavy in my heart because I had an abortion when I was 18 years old. If it wasn’t for places like Planned Parenthood, I would be a mother — and I wouldn’t have been a great mother and I definitely wouldn’t be sitting here today. I got an abortion while I was going through a really huge transition in my life."

The 'Dancing with the Stars' pro - who was previously married to 'Boy Meets World' actor Matthew Lawrence from 2019 until 2022 - added that while the whole process was "traumatic", she is still "happy" about her decision and has no regrets.

She added: "I was two weeks pregnant when I got an abortion. I remember rolling up to Planned Parenthood with picketers holding anti-abortion signs and that alone was traumatic. But on top of it all, the whole process is traumatic. … I’m happy that I made that decision. I have no regrets. There is no shame behind it.

"I think I made the right decision [because] I wouldn’t be sitting here [and] I wouldn’t be passionately doing what I love to do if it wasn’t for the right to have an abortion, and this has nothing to do with anybody else."

Entourage star elopes

Adrian Grenier has eloped with Jordan Roemmele.

The 45-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Vincent Chase on the comedy series 'Entourage' - tied the knot with long-term girlfriend, Jordan, 27 in a spur-of-the-moment ceremony while on vacation.

He said: "It wasn't planned! We eloped in the Atlas Mountains while on vacation with friends in Morocco. We embraced the serendipity of the moment and made the decision to tie the knot — literally, we didn't have rings so used string for rings."

The wedding was officiated by Adrian's friend and musician friend RY X - who used his phone to get ordained before the ceremony - and performed a song for the couple.

Adrian added: "Adrian - who shot to fame in the 1990s and appeared in a slew of classic comedies including 'Drive Me Crazy' alongside 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch' star Melissa Joan Hart - also went on to pay tribute to his friends and family and noted that his guests all "embraced the spontaneity" as they helped to create a wedding "out of thin air."

He told PEOPLE: "My friend RY X even got ordained on his cell phone at dinner — good thing we had wifi — in order to officiate the wedding, and then sang beautifully after that. We were with a group of incredible friends, all of whom immediately rallied behind us and embraced the spontaneity of the moment. They put in so much love and effort to create a wedding from thin air! We couldn't have planned a better wedding if we tried!"

The pair tend to be private about their relationship but Adrian is thought to have been dating Jordan since 2017 and back in December 2020 remarked on Instagram that he was "at peace these days" with her.



Ray Liotta's fiancee Jacy Nittolo is in 'deep pain' following his death

Liotta's fiancee mourning

Ray Liotta's fiancee Jacy Nittolo is in "deep pain" one month on from his death.

The 'Goodfellas' actor passed away in his sleep back in May 2022 at the age of 67 and now his fiancee Jacy, 47, - whom he was engaged to from December 2020 until his death - has spoken out on social media to express her grief as she continues to deal with the "unexpected loss."

Alongside a slideshow of photos with Ray, Jacy wrote on Instagram: "It’s hard to believe a month has gone by.

There are no words to properly describe what one goes through with this type of unexpected loss.

I miss him every second of every day."

Ray is survived by his daughter Karsen, 23, - who he has with ex-wife Michelle Grace - but was also stepfather to Jacy's children and the businesswoman went on to explain that her kids are her "hint of light" who help her find "love and laughter" during the difficult time.

She added: "Each day my hint of some light is being with our children- Dax, Karsen, Chazz, Jade and Joey. Through such deep pain I find so much love and laughter. Our lives right now are so fragile yet we are each holding each other up. It’s as if we are one big blended family that was predestined beyond our wildest imaginations."(sic)

Jacy's post comes just two weeks after Karsen took to Instagram herself to thank followers and fans of her dad for their support since his death.

She wrote: "Those who knew him, loved him. You are the best Dad anyone could ask for. I love you. Thank you for everything."



Denise Richards joins OnlyFans just days after daughter Sami

Richards joins OnlyFans

Denise Richards has joined OnlyFans.

The 51-year-old model - who has Sami, 18, and Lola, 17-with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and is also mom to adopted 11-year-old daughter Eloise - has signed up to sell racy content on the adults-only platform just weeks after her eldest daughter also created a profile and alerted fans to her new venture on Instagram.

Her bio on her page reads: "Hi…. Me. Personally answering all your comments and question’s and very excited to interact with all of you."

News of the OnlyFans account comes just weeks after 'The Bold and the Beautiful' star Denise - who is charging fans $25 per month or $67.50 for a 3-month bundle to view her content - took to social media to social media to announce her support that her daughter was to start selling X-rated photographs.

Alongside a snap of herself in a bikini top, Sami wrote on Instagram: "Click the link in my bio if u wanna see more [kiss emoji] and Denise commented: "Sami I will always support you and always have your back. I love you [heart emoji](sic)"

However, former 'Two and a Half Men' star Charlie - who split from Denise back in 2005 after four years of marriage when she was pregnant with their second child - blasted the notion that his daughter had joined OnlyFans and noted it would "not have happened" if she was still living with him.

He told PageSix: "She is 18 years old now and living with her mother. This did not occur under my roof. I do not condone this, but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, and creative, and not sacrifice her integrity."

Back in 2021, Sami alleged that she had moved back in with her father over a year ago and accused Denise - who is married to Aaron Phypers - of running an "abusive household."

In a TikTok post, she said: "1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc…"

However, a source claimed a few weeks ago that she had moved back in with her mother "within the last month."



Queen Elizabeth has been horse-riding again almost a year after she was forced to quit due to ill health.

Queen back in the saddle

Queen Elizabeth II has been horse-riding again.

The 96-year-old monarch - who has always taken a keen interest in equestrianism throughout her 70-year- reign - was told to quit horse riding back in October 2021 as she battled through a series of "mobility issues" but has now reportedly been away for a trip around Windsor on horseback once again.

A Windsor Castle source told The Sun: "The Queen has enjoyed being on her horse again. The Queen had missed her riding over these nine months. She had been able to whizz around the castle’s Quadrangle in her golf buggy to walk her corgis."

The insider went on to explain that the Queen taking up her favourite hobby once again is a "wonderful sign" after concerns that have surrounded her health in recent months had forced her to pull out of several engagements - including her beloved Royal Ascot horse racing event - and allowed her to make only two live appearances during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The source added: "Riding again is a wonderful sign after all those worries we had about her health. To be able to do so at 96 is pretty remarkable."

Back in October 2021, a source alleged that the monarch was "disappointed" to have not been able to ride for over a month after having been in "quite a bit of discomfort."

The source said: "She was in quite a bit of discomfort. She adores riding and it has been part of her ritual for most of her life. She has been extremely disappointed not to go riding since the beginning of September."



Joe Exotic is dating ex-boyfriend Seth Posey again

Joe Exotic is dating ex again

Joe Exotic is back together with his ex-boyfriend Seth Posey.

The 'Tiger King' star - who is currently doing time after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against rival Carole Baskin and is in the middle of divorce proceedings with ex-husband Dillon - who split from his fiance John Graham last Thursday (16.06.22) and is now said to have stuck up a relationship with former flame Seth.

Autumn Blackledge, the divorce attorney for the 59-year-old reality star said: "Joe is thankful that Seth is back in his life. They are both taking things slowly and just enjoying the time to reconnect."

Joe - whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage - first met John while they were both behind bars in Fort Worth, Texas, in February 2021 - explained that while prison life is "tough", he believes that he and John were "in love" at one point and he intends to keep in touch with him in the future.

Joe's attorney told ETOnline: "Joe has shared with me that prison is a very tough place to be... you meet all kinds of people in prison and that most are really good. John Graham spent 10 years of his life in prison and Joe states that he would like to believe that they did fall in love.

Joe will continue to have a close relationship with his son and some members of John’s family. He has nothing bad to say about John Graham and wishes him well as he gets his life. "

Autumn added that Joe - who is currently serving 21 years in prison and dated Seth for a matter of months towards the end of 2021 - just wants to be "happy" and wants to "go home" as soon as possible.

She added: "Now that a very special man has come back, [Joe] just wants to be happy and, for God’s sake, to go home.



Elon Musk's daughter granted legal name, gender change

Musk disowned by daughter

A California judge has approved a request by Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s adult daughter to change her name and gender on her birth certificate.

Vivian Jenna Wilson filed the petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court the day after turning 18 in April.

She listed gender identity and an apparent dislike of her father, as the reason for the change.

“I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form,” she wrote on the petition.

Judge Rafael Ongkeko approved the petition Wednesday in the Santa Monica courthouse after no one objected to the change. A hearing that had been scheduled for Friday was canceled. The court order said a new birth certificate would be issued reflecting the change.

Vivian will now legally use the last name of her mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008.

The couple had five children, the oldest of which died as an infant. Vivian has a twin brother.

Musk has been married three times, including twice to “Westworld” actress Talulah Riley. He has two young children with the singer Grimes.

On Father’s Day, Musk tweeted: “I love all my my kids so much.”

Musk, 50, who is currently trying to buy Twitter for $44 billion, has previously said he supports transgender people, though he was criticized for dismissing the use of different pronouns.

“I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare,” he tweeted in December 2020.

In July 2020, he tweeted “Pronouns suck.”

The Associated Press attempted to reach Vivian Jenna Wilson for comment but phone calls were not answered and text messages were not immediately returned.
