Johnny Depp’s reputation might be getting by with a little help from his friends. Paul McCartney, during a concert in Seattle this week, appeared to lend the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 58, his support amid the contentious defamation trial between Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard. Philanthropist and former model Jill Vedder, wife of Eddie Vedder, shared video on Instagram Tuesday that shows McCartney — a reported pal of Depp’s — performing “My Valentine” at the piano, in front of footage of Depp playing guitar. “Might be controversial to post this video with J.D,” Vedder, 44, captioned the cl...

A Tennessee sheriff's deputy is recovering after he was accidentally shot by a fellow deputy who was trying to shoot a dog, WANE-15 reports.
The incident took place as the two deputies were standing outside a residence after responding to a call when an aggressive pit bull appeared and attacked Knox County Deputy Lydia Driver. Deputy Jordan Hurst fired his gun in an attempt to subdue the dog, but hit Driver in the leg. She was then rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.
Hurst has been placed on administrative leave with pay.
"Law Enforcement is a dangerous profession; it is unpredictable. Officers deal with people and situations the average person will never experience in their lifetime,” Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler said in a statement. “This incident is unfortunate, but we will get through it together. We are blessed to serve a community who loves and appreciates our men and women; for that, I'm grateful."
Driver is in intensive care at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, according to Knoxville News Sentinel. The pit bull was taken from the scene by Animal Control.
Former White House counsel Pat Cipollone is set to testify in private on Friday before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots, and attorney Paul Rosenzweig told CNN on Thursday that it could be pivotal in whether criminal charges are brought against former President Donald Trump.
Rosenzweig began his analysis by noting that it's unlikely Cipollone will deliver captivating bombshells that we've seen in past J6 Committee hearings, but he said he could still be a critical witness in the investigation.
"I think genuinely people like [former Mark Meadows aide Cassidy Hutchinson] are probably more likely to break through and create interest than the probably pretty dry and guarded testimony of somebody like Mr. Cipollone," he said. "What is critical about Mr. Cipollone, though, his testimony will cement evidence of the seeming criminal intent of many of the actors. if your lawyer says, 'Don't do that, it is a crime,' and you go ahead and do it anyway, that's significant evidence not just for the January 6th Committee, but for potential prosecutions at the Department of Justice or elsewhere."
Hutchinson testified that Cipollone told her to not allow Trump to go to the Capitol on January 6th, as it likely would have resulted in criminal charges potentially related to obstructing an official act of Congress. She then alleged Trump desperately tried to go anyway before being blocked from doing so by the United States Secret Service.
If Cipollone were to confirm Hutchinson's account, it could go a long way toward proving Trump had criminal intent with his efforts to block the certification of the 2020 election.

On Thursday, Business Insider reported that Alex Holder, the British documentary filmmaker who went behind the scenes during former President Donald Trump's plot to overthrow the 2020 presidential election, revealed new details about how the former president's children reacted to his loss in private.
"Holder in a Tuesday interview with Insider described seeing a 'mixture' of reactions among Trump's three eldest children: Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr," reported Sophia Ankel.
"There was an attitude that one of them would give which was sort of incredibly bitter and angry about the end result," Holder said. "And then there were the other children who were totally in denial and would not even refer or discuss or engage with anything to do with the fact that they were no longer in the White House and the catastrophe that had taken place earlier."
Holder did not elaborate on which of the three children had which reactions.
"Trump's two eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric, have vocally stood behind their father in his unfounded claims the election was stolen," the report noted. "In a string of text messages, first reported by CNN, Don Jr. encouraged former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to pursue 'multiple paths" to overturn his father's election loss. In a separate interview with The Independent, Holder said that Eric was unconcerned about potential violence from Trump supporters reacting to false claims of election fraud. In contrast, Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, stayed tight-lipped in the final weeks of Trump's presidency while slowly distancing themselves from the administration, according to The New York Times."
Holder's documentary, which is scheduled to air on July 10th on Discovery+, has gained significant publicity after the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riots subpoenaed his footage as part of their investigation.
This comes as Ivanka's conduct in the run-up to the January 6 attack has come under fresh scrutiny. She claimed in a deposition for the House January 6 Committee that she agreed with former Attorney General William Barr's assessment debunking Trump's conspiracy theories about the election, but privately in 2020, she said she believed Trump should "continue to fight" the election results.
