Johnny Depp, and ex-wife Amber Heardhave been squaring off in a bombshell civil trial that opened in Virginia12 days ago, accusing each other of physical and emotional abuse.


Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, for $50 million over a 2018 op-ed she penned for The Washington Post, alleging that she was a victim of domestic abuse. The piece did not specifically name Depp.

Attorneys for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star say her false allegations derailed his career and turned him into a pariah in Hollywood. Heard countersued for $100 million accusing him and his former attorney of conspiring to "destroy and defame" her.

The couple’s brief marriage detonated in 2016 when Heard, sporting a bruised face, filed for a restraining order at a Los Angeles courthouse as a gaggle of reporters and photographers swarmed.

The divorce was finalized in 2017, with Heard receiving a whopping $7 million payout for the 15-month union. But the mutual mudslinging has continued in full force, with both actors becoming better known for their toxic marriage than their movie roles.

The civil trial left off Thursday with Depp wrapping up his third day on the stand in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia. The "Black Mass" actor’s cross-examination is expected to continue Monday. But he isn't the only A-lister who could testify.

Heard's legal team may call her ex-lover, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and her "Pineapple Express" co-star James Franco, according to a witness list.

In a stunning escalation, Heard claimed publicly for the first time that Depp had sexually assaulted her during their brief marriage. Heard's attorney, Ben Rottenborn, said that Depp violated the actress during a three-day drug-induced blackout in Australia in 2015.

"Amber did suffer sexual violence at the hands of Depp," he told a panel of seven jurors in his opening statement. "You will hear in the most graphic and horrifying terms about the violence that she suffered. You’ll hear that straight from her."
