GERRY Conlon would have stood by his close pal Johnny Depp over wife-beating allegations, his biographer has said.

The campaigner and the Hollywood actor, accused of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard, were so close that Mr Depp said he would have "taken a bullet for him".

The Pirates of the Caribbean star's libel action against The Sun newspaper ended on Tuesday after 16 days of shocking accusations and counter-accusations against the actor (57) and his 34-year-old former spouse. Judgement is due in the case in September or October.
