Depp is suing Heard for libel in Virginia’s Fairfax County Circuit Court, saying a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote defamed him.
The trial of Johnny Depp versus ex-wife Amber Heard, which has been full of high emotions and explosive accusations, – and it isn’t over yet. The trial will resume Monday. Depp is suing Heard for libel in Virginia’s Fairfax County Circuit Court, saying a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote defamed him when she described herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse." Since the trial began April 11, both actors as well as witnesses and experts have been called to the stand to back up each side. More well-known celebrities and key witnesses are still scheduled to testify in the coming weeks. Most recently, Heard took the stand for two days to testify against Depp, alleging he physically and sexually assaulted her, and detailed her experiences with Depp’s past drug and alcohol use. When Depp took the stand, he maintained he "never struck Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any women in my life."
