Raising a fist in the air, he sang into his microphone while playing his wooden guitar, with thousands of fans watching.

A representative for Paul did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

Behind him was a large black-and-white video projected of the Edward Scissorhands star, who initially played an acoustic guitar, before beginning to recite the song’s lyrics in sign language as Paul sang them live.

“It could be controversial to post this video with JD I don’t care,” wrote Vedder, who is a philanthropist and apparently acquaintance of the Hollywood icon.

“Know him just to be a gentleman,” he continued, before defending the actor, who has been accused of sexual assault and physical abuse by his ex-wife, Amber Heard.

And while I support women and the “me too” movement, I also know some women who have destroyed the lives of good and innocent men. .. @johnnydepp… PS verbal abuse is also not okay… watch your tongue.’

The oddly timed concert footage comes as the actor is embroiled in a furious court battle over his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber, 36, even though Paul has been using the video at his shows for nearly a decade.

Earlier this week, Johnny’s ex-wife, Amber, spoke on the stand as she tearfully recounted alleged instances in which he emotionally and physically abused her.

She was testifying as part of his ongoing defamation lawsuit against him for his 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which he referenced the alleged abuse perpetrated against her, though he did not mention Johnny by name.

However, she previously accused him of abuse while seeking a restraining order in 2016, and has been uncompromising in her claims during the current trial.

The former couple co-starred in 2011’s The Rum Diary and began a relationship the following year after he and longtime partner Vanessa Paradis split in 2012.

The two married in 2015, but she filed for divorce in May of the following year and received her restraining order against Johnny. Her divorce was finalized in 2017.
