Los Angeles - Johnny Depp has appeared on camera for the first time since he was accused of assaulting estranged wife Amber Heard.

The 52-year-old actor - whose spouse filed for divorce last month and has accused him of hitting her with an iPhone - appeared in a promotional video for his group Hollywood Vampires' upcoming concert at Romexpo Arena in Bucharest, Romania, on Monday.

Holding a guitar and wearing a leather jacket, Johnny says in the clip: "Hi, I'm Johnny Depp with the Hollywood Vampires."

After urging fans to go to the show, he smiled and lifted his guitar then added: "We hope to see you there and have some big fun. Have fun."

It was recently claimed Johnny and Amber - who were married for 15 months - are embroiled in a custody battle over their dogs Pistol and Boo.

The 30-year-old actress wants Pistol, who was given to her by ex-girlfriend Tasya van Ree, but the Black Mass star is battling to keep both.

A source said: "Johnny adores both dogs.

"He wants them to be happy and finds it unbelievable she is suggesting dividing them. Money means nothing when it comes to those animals.

"They're effectively treated as their kids. For Johnny, this is war. He'll stop at nothing to have Pistol and Boo with him."
