Since April 11, 2022, the jury has heard dozens of hours of testimonies and audio or video recordings that revealed the scabrous details of their life together, far from the glamour of Hollywood, including an anecdote of etron found in the marital bed.

Amber Heard said that Johnny Depp became a “monster” under the influence of an explosive cocktail of drugs and alcohol and did not undergo rehab but also that he allegedly raped her with a bottle of alcohol in March 2015, a month after their wedding, in Australia where the actor was filming episode 5 of Pirates of the Caribbean.

After leaving in May 2016, she says she became the target of a smear campaign on social media that wiped out her career. “Harassed” since the beginning of the trial, broadcast live on television, she says she has received “thousands” of death threats. Johnny Depp can count on the support of hundreds of fans who have cheered him every day in court.

In the past, the comedian had lost a first defamation lawsuit in London in 2020, against the tabloid The Sun which had called him an “abusive husband“. The two actors, who divorced in 2017, each claim to have lost between $40 million and $50 million in fees since the op-ed appeared.

Amber Heard’s life “has become hell” since the trial began, said her lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft. She asked jurors — five men and two women — to dismiss Johnny Depp’s complaint to “let her go on with her life and raise her child.” For his part, the 58-year-old actor also wants to “resume the course of his life“, had previously said his lawyer, Camille Vasquez.
