He spent his Memorial Day weekend onstage at Jeff Beck concerts: two in Sheffield and one in London. Before the verdict, he was spotted leaving the 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel London, where suites can cost up to $2,985 a night, the Daily Mail reported.

The actor won all three counts of his bombshell defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard on Wednesday after the jury substantiated the claim that his ex-wife sullied his reputation and damaged his career when she wrote about becoming a “public figure representing domestic abuse” following the couple’s split.

The panel of seven in Fairfax awarded the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star a total of $10.35 million, including $10 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages, after deliberating for about 13 hours.
