Johnny Depp has reportedly signed a multi-year, lucrative contract with Dior as the actor continues his comeback tour.

However, the unsealed documents from the defamation trial between the actor and his ex-wife Amber Heard have caused quite a stir on social media.

During the six-week trial earlier this year,  Depp fans claimed Dior was one of the few brands that did not distance themselves from the actor.

The former Pirates of the Caribbean star is the face of their Sauvage fragrance for men, and the fashion house reportedly enjoyed an uptick in sales during the trial.

Depp largely won the defamation trial with the jury coming back with all three counts in his favor, with one going to Heard.

The unsealed document reveals the former couple’s messy allegations against each other, unearthing more text messages and photos.

Dior shares support for Johnny Depp after Sauvage deal

Johnny Depp has reportedly signed a multi-year, seven-figure contract with Dior.

Some reports claim that the actor will earn $1 million for continuing as the face of Sauvage fragrance for men.

Dior posted a series of Instagram posts to announce the deal, one of which showed Depp on stage in Paris, where he performed with Jeff Beck.

“Watch @johnnydepp as he takes the stage at @olympiahall in Paris, the legendary concert venue where he saw @vanessa.paradis and introduced his kids to @bobdylan. Like Sauvage, it represents the idea of something fearless yet human. By: @gregwilliamsphotography,” the caption reads.

Another Instagram post quotes Depp’s love for the fragrance and the “sense of memory” the smell gives him, along with backstage photos of the actor.
