Johnny Deep has been picked to make a major appearance in volume 4, which will be available on Prime Video on November 9; this is the first time a male celebrity talent has been chosen for a lead position in Rihanna’s series of Savage Fenty fashion presentations.
The information follows the well-reported trial between Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, in which a Virginia jury finally convicted Heard guilty of defaming Depp after she penned an opinion piece that was published in The Washington Post and claimed to be a survivor of domestic violence.
After a violent argument between Rihanna and her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, pictures of the incident were made public, exposing the singer and businesswoman for cosmetics as a victim of domestic abuse.
Since the conclusion of Depp’s six-week trial, he has attended the MTV Video Music Awards, several of Jeff Beck’s concerts, and been confirmed as the director of a movie about the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani that Al Pacino and Barry Navidi are producing. He is also set to star in French director Mawenn’s upcoming movie “Jeanne du Barry,” which is about King Louis XV and his concubine.
Fans have attacked the casting choice on Twitter, with many of them claiming that it is an attempt to “rehabilitate” the actor and his image.
In the past, Erykah Badu and Cindy Crawford have participated in the fashion show for Rihanna’s lingerie line. Along with Sheryl Lee Ralph, Winston Duke, Simu Liu, Taraji P. Henson, Irina Shayk, Cara Delevingne, Taylour Paige, Damson Idris, and Rihanna herself, this year’s performances include Burna Boy, Maxwell, Don Toliver, and Anitta.
With the release of “Lift Me Up,” her first song in six years, for the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Rihanna most recently made her return to the music business official. She will also perform in the halftime performance of Super Bowl LVII in 2023, it has been revealed.
