Johnny Depp's home was invaded by a homeless man who had a shower and made himself a drink, it's claimed. Police were allegedly called by a neighbour of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, who said they had seen the man hanging around in their garden by the pool.

They said the man took off when he was confronted and he jumped a gate, which actually got him closer to Johnny's house, TMZ reports.

Shortly after that, cops were called again by Depp's security team alerting them someone was inside his home, according to the report.

When they arrived, they allegedly found him taking a shower in one of the bathrooms.

He reportedly refused to come out.

Police had to kick the door down in order to arrest him, it's claimed.

The intruder also allegedly got into Depp's drinks cupboard and made himself a drink.

He was booked for felony vandalism due to a damaged door in the home, TMZ said.

The Mirror has contacted reps for Johnny Depp and the Los Angeles Police Department for comment.

It comes after Depp's lawyers appeared in court asking for permission to appeal a High Court ruling that he assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard and put her in fear for her life.

He is asking the Court of Appeal to order a retrial of his libel claim against The Sun, which had branded him a "wife beater" in a 2018 article.

Following a three-week trial in July last year, Mr Justice Nicol ruled that Depp, 57, assaulted Ms Heard, 34, on a dozen occasions and put her in "fear for her life" three times.

The judge found that an April 2018 column calling Mr Depp a "wife beater" was "substantially true".

But the actor claims he "did not receive a fair trial" and has applied for permission to appeal against the ruling at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on Thursday.

During their application, his lawyers said that Amber's claim that she gave her $7million (£5.5 million) divorce settlement to charity was branded a "calculated and manipulative lie"

Depp is still waiting for the result of his application.
