    Shane MacGowan’s wife claims Johnny Depp is ‘a gentle soul’ after he lost ‘wife beater’ libel trial

    Johnny Depp’s last defenders in showbiz? Wife of The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan insists their friend Johnny Depp is a ‘gentle soul’ and says she has ‘so much respect’ for the actor after he lost his ‘wife beater’ libel trial

    • Irish journalist Victoria Mary Clarke, 54, is married to Pogues’ Shane MacGowan
    • Couple are firm friends with Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp
    • Depp produced new film Crock of Gold – A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan
    • Victoria has been vocal in her support for Depp throughout recent libel trial 

    Shane MacGowan’s wife Victoria Mary Clarke has spoken in support of actor Johnny Depp after he lost his ‘wife beater’ libel trial against The Sun newspaper.

    The Irish journalist, 54, who married The Pogues singer, 62, in 2018, claims the Pirates of the Caribbean star is a ‘gentle soul’ and a ‘force for compassion’ in a series of heartfelt Instagram posts.

    Depp, 57, took legal action after the publication labelled him a ‘wife beater’ in reference to his acrimonious and ultimately short-lived two year marriage to the actress Amber Heard – but his claim was summarily dismissed by the High Court.

    Following the verdict, the Hollywood star was asked to step down from his role as Gellart Grindewald in JK Rowling‘s blockbuster Fantastic Beasts series. 

    However, Depp has directed a film about The Pogues legend entitled Crock of Gold – A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan, which is set for release later this month.

    Today thousands have signed a petition demanding the actor be reinstated to the franchise. 

    Writing about Depp on Instagram earlier this week, Ms Clarke said she doesn’t know anyone else who is ‘so genuinely respectful of other human beings’. 

    ‘He forgives and he keeps his heart open and he is unbelievably compassionate and good humoured and patient and loyal and he loves to create beautiful work and he loves to bring joy to people’s lives in the way that he lives his life,’ she wrote. 

    ‘He is not a saint he is a human being, but he is a gentle soul and I feel tremendously grateful to be his friend because he is so uplifting and encouraging to be around.

    ‘I have faith that he will not only get through his current challenges but he will rise above them and continue to be a force for compassion and joy and creativity in this world.’ 

    Ms Clarke and her husband have been vocal in their support for the actor throughout the trial. 

    The trio are firm friends; Depp produced an upcoming film about The Pogues legend entitled Crock of Gold – A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan, set to hit cinemas later this month.

    The film, directed by Julien Temple, won the prestigious Special Jury Prize after its world premiere at the San Sebastian International Film Festival last month.

    Depp and MacGowan have been close pals for over 30 years; he recently spoke of the moment they met, admitting: ‘There are moments in life when you know this will happen one time and one time only, when you get the opportunity to spend time with greatness.

    ‘Having known him [McGowan] a long, long time I can only say I fell in love with him the second I met him and I’m still in love with him to this day.’ 

    The documentary promises to reveal ‘Shane’s true punk and poetic nature, culminating in his 60th birthday celebration where singers, movie stars and rock ’n roll outlaws gathered for a knees-up to remember’.

    While Depp will not feature in the third Fantastic Beasts instalment, it’s understood that he will still receive his full fee – reported to be within the region of $10million.

    The Hollywood Reporter claims that Depp had a special provision in his contract called pay-to-play, meaning that he would get his full salary no matter what happened to the movie, or if his role went to another actor.

    Swedish actor Mads Mikkelsen has now been approached with a view to taking the role, Deadline reports.

    Depp – who filmed one scene for the new film before initiating legal proceedings against The Sun – also has a separate defamation lawsuit against Heard, scheduled to take place in Virginia.

    This would have required the actor to be in court for three consecutive days in November, and would have also altered the Fantastic Beasts 3 shooting schedule.
