While Amber Heard fled to Spain with her daughter earlier this month, Johnny Depp continued to go in and out of court. In the year that he saw him in the spotlight for his much-talked-about legal battle with his ex-wife, now music is a cause him some trouble.
Before the judge Depp did not go alone, but in the company of his guitarist Jeff Beck to answer for the accusation of plagiarism made by a professor: the folklorist Bruce Jackson. Indeed, the latter accused Depp and Beck of having plagiarized a poem entitled Hobo Benwhich appeared in his book Get your ass in the water and swim like me. Jackson himself does not claim to be its author, however he claims that this was his told by a man named Slim Wilsonwho was an inmate at the Missouri State Penitentiary at the time.
The two colleagues, although we covertly admitted that some parts of the offending song may reflect the poem, claim to be their original work and intend it to be recognized as such, having committed no copyright infringement. For them Jackson misrepresented, bordering on scamin order to reach a plea deal and a payment from the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
While awaiting further developments, we are certain that, at the moment, the actor is not worried about money. In fact, a few days ago, Johnny Depp sold the house of the famous finger accident, which he shared with Heard to a record number!
