Robert Downey Jr. extended his support to his old friend Johnny Depp shortly after he won the defamation case against his ex-spouse, Amber Heard, with a call on FaceTime.

Depp’s close friend Josh Richman revealed the conversation with a group of Depp supporters during a charity live stream event for Children’s Hospital Los Angles.

“John, thank God it’s over,” Downey Jr. told Depp.

The "Edward Scissorhands" star was “stoic” in a UK hotel room while his friends and staff cried and screamed around him when the verdict was announced. Even Jeff Beck flipped off the television screen, Richman revealed.

Richman also shared that Depp had no intention of asking his ex-girlfriend Kate Moss to testify during the trial yet things quickly changed after Heard took the witness stand.

He added that the notoriously private model was furious with Heard mentioning her name during her testimony.

This is not the first trial Heard claimed Depp pushed Moss down the stairs during a testimony.

In 2020, when Heard was a witness in Depp’s libel case against “The Sun”. He sued the paper after it claimed he was violent toward his ex-wife while they were together. The UK’s High Court ruled in the publisher’s favor.

“I remembered information I had heard [that] he pushed a former girlfriend, I believe it was Kate Moss, down the stairs. I had heard this rumor from two people and it was fresh in my mind,” she alleged.

Depp ended up inviting his former flame to see him perform alongside Beck at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London a day before the trial verdict.
