According to a report by TMZ, Dior relaunched an ad campaign featuring Depp, with one ad playing during MasterChef on FOX as part of the 8 to 9 PM slot. The commercial was shot some years ago after Depp originally signed on with Dior in 2015.

However, it was not in heavy rotation due to Depp's legal battle with Aquaman actress Heard.

On June 1, a seven-person jury made up of five men and two women found that both 59-year-old Depp and 36-year-old Heard had defamed one another - but sided mostly with the Edward Scissorhands actor.

He was awarded $10.35 million in damages - a reduction from $15 million. Depp's former wife was awarded $2 million.

In any case, Depp's career appears to be experiencing a resurgence since the trial concluded last week.

Fans of the actor are backing his return to Hollywood and he's recently started his own TikTok account, with his very first post dedicated to his supporters.

The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory star set up the account just days after he was awarded more than $10 million in his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife. In his first video on the platform, he thanked his fans for lending him their ardent support throughout the trial.

"To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters," captioned the clip. "We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together."

The court case between the celebrity exes was over a December 2018 op-ed the Aquaman star wrote for The Washington Post, in which she referred to herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse". She named no names in the article, but Depp maintained that he was defamed in the piece.

He claimed that allegations that he had abused Heard, which were in the public domain before the publication of the op-ed, meant that he was intrinsically linked to the piece despite not being mentioned specifically.
