Just weeks after Johnny Depp lost his libel case and was asked to step down his role in Fantastic Beasts 3, he's accepted a special acting award.

                                  But in a bizarre picture of the actor accepting the award, he's seen to be posing behind bars...

                                  ?

                                  It's been a very turbulent couple of years for Johnny Depp.

                                  The Kentucky born actor, who has been renowned in Hollywood since the 1990s, has been embroiled in a highly publicized domestic abuse scandal with his ex-girlfriend, Amber Heard, for the last 4 years.

                                  At first, this coupling seemed to be at the start of a promising relationship.

                                  After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, the actor started dating Texan actress and model, Amber Heard, shortly after calling it quits with his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis.

                                  At first, the pair seemed perfect for each other.

                                  Johnny and Amber enjoyed a happy couple of years together, and would regularly attend red-carpet events as a couple, arm-in-arm and seemingly madly in love. They even tied the knot in 2015 after just a few years of dating.

                                  However, it was here when things started to go a little ship-shaped.

                                  Their honeymoon period was rather short-lived as, just months after their marriage, Johnny reportedly suffered a hand injury as a result of "smashing bottles and windows" during a heated argument with his wife.

                                  For the next year, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface...

                                  So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their "I do"s.

                                  At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious...

                                  With many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited "irreconcilable differences" while filing the divorce petition. But, only a few months into their separation, Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her.

                                  It was a big allegation to make...

                                  via: Getty

                                  So people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

                                  But this didn't stop the world from turning against Johnny.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

                                  And, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence.

                                  Though she didn't explicitly name Johnny in her op-ed, she did allude to the time period when, “2 years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out."

                                  There was an outpour of support for Amber...

                                  Who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union's "Ambassador for Women's Issues".

                                  And, despite profusely denying all the allegations against him...

                                  via: Getty

                                  Johnny found his career taking a hit as a result of the on-going scandal. Fewer and fewer directors were hiring Johnny for roles, and his appearance in J.K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald,?was heavily criticized.

                                  And in 2018, he was dropped from his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

                                  In a career-shattering announcement just 4 days after Amber's damning article, Disney announced that the actor would no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

                                  Though they didn't directly cite Amber's abuse allegations...

                                  via: Getty

                                  It was widely assumed that Disney, who have earned over $4.5 billion at the box office from the Pirates franchise, were trying to distance themselves from the actor and the scandal surrounding him.

                                  Then, there was a sudden change in events.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Despite their actions in 2018, Disney are reportedly considering bringing Johnny Depp back to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the 6th installment of the franchise.

                                  This was huge news for the actor.

                                  via: Getty

                                  But their sudden change of heart wasn't random and comes after a shocking twist in the Depp-Heard scandal.

                                  Last year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber...

                                  via: Getty

                                  And presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around.

                                  Shockingly, the actor alleged that he was the victim all along.

                                  via: Getty

                                  Johnny's defamation lawsuit read: “The op-ed [Amber's article] depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her."

                                  The lawsuit also stated that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false"...

                                  And listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks.

                                  The allegations were difficult to read.

                                  via: Getty

                                  "She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me." His lawsuit read.

                                  And, to tarnish the actress' reputation and credibility even further...

                                  Audio obtained by the Daily Mail was released that heard her admitting to attacking Johnny. She could also be heard taunting him, saying: "You are such a baby. Grow the f*** up, Johnny. You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn't matter how friendly it is, it's not cool."

                                  The case was grueling...

                                  via: Getty

                                  And Johnny has been in court recently for his libel case against The Sun newspaper - whom he is suing over a 2018 article in which he was described as a "wife-beater."

                                  The pair were in court as part of the 3-week long trial.

                                  While in court, both parties played pretty dirty, revealing compromising photographs of each other which have blown everything out of the water, yet again. And of course with the evidence came more allegations.

                                  But earlier this month, it was confirmed that things didn't go Johnny's way.

                                  It was announced that the actor lost the controversial case against the newspaper and editor Dan Wootton.

                                  He'll now have to pay substantial costs to the newspaper group.

                                  "The Sun has stood up and campaigned for the victims of domestic abuse for over twenty years," said a spokesperson.

                                  "Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and we thank the Judge for his careful consideration and thank Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court."

                                  The trial has been one of the biggest libel trials ever.

                                  Of course, this massive loss was terrible for the actor's name...

                                  As he was soon forced to resign from his role in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3. The actor announced the news via his Instagram and many of his fans were not happy.

                                  Well, despite losing both his role and libel case, the actor has still been winning awards...

                                  And more recently, Johnny was awarded a special acting award as part of the Cameraimage festival in Poland.

                                  The actor was awarded the Actor with Unique Visual Sensitivity prize for the drama, Minamata.

                                  Minamata?is Johnny's new film which premiered immediately after he accepted his award and closed the virtual event.

                                  While accepting the award, Johnny posed with the trophy in a bizarre setting.

                                  Pictured in the Bahamas, the actor is smiling and pointing to his trophy... while behind bars.

                                  The only thing we can think after seeing that is...

                                  Very strange.

                                  The strange image is unmentioned in a letter that Johnny wrote to the event's organizers.

                                  In the letter, Depp praised the cinematographers he has worked with throughout his career. "I have always been someone who needs to not know what is coming next. To capture those unrehearsed moments – those moments of beautiful mistake – those same moments that make cinema, and life, magic," the Independent reports that he wrote.

                                  You can see the bizarre picture here:
