Johnny Depp’s $50m defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard is taking centre stage in a Virginia courtroom and not to mention the trial is getting dirtier day by day. Depp sued
'Aquaman' actress over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post, in which she opened about how she's been the victim of domestic abuse. However, Depp's lawyers argued that Heard ruined the actor's reputation by "choosing to lie about him for her personal benefit."
Let us walk you through the case.
Back in 2018, Heard wrote an essay for the Washington Post in which she described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse." Fast-forwarding to the ongoing trial the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star claimed in court documents that Heard fabricated the story in the hopes of gaining "positive publicity" and to "advance her career."
Further, responding to domestic abuse accusations, Depp called them ''quite heinous and disturbing," adding that he had never hit Heard or any other woman in his lifetime.
From Depp's missing fingertip to Amber's indecent behaviour, here are some shocking revelations made in the Johnny Depp- Amber Heard trial.
