Now, we all know Johnny Depp has been through a lot these past couple of years…

  via Getty Images  

The Kentucky-born actor, who has been renowned in Hollywood since the 1990s, has been embroiled in a highly publicized domestic abuse scandal with his ex-girlfriend, Amber Heard, for the last 5 years.

At first, this coupling seemed to be at the start of a promising relationship.

  via Getty Images  

After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, the actor started dating Texan actress and model, Amber Heard, shortly after calling it quits with his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis.

advertisement

They announced their engagement in 2014…

  via Getty Images  

And, not ones to waste any time, they hastily tied the knot just one year later in February 2015.

advertisement

However, it was here when things started to go a little ship-shaped.

  via Getty Images  

Their honeymoon period was rather short-lived as, just months after their marriage, Depp reportedly suffered a hand injury as a result of “smashing bottles and windows” during a heated argument with his wife.

advertisement

For the next year, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface…

  via Getty Images  

So it came as no shock when Heard filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their “I do”s.

advertisement

At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious…

  via Getty Images  

Many news outlets reported that Heard had cited “irreconcilable differences” while filing the divorce petition.

advertisement

But, only a few months into their separation…

  via Getty Images  

Heard filed a restraining order against Depp, claiming that he had previously assaulted her.

advertisement

It was a big allegation to make…

  via Getty Images  

So people were confused when Heard retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

advertisement

But this didn’t stop the world from turning against Depp.

  via Getty Images  

Heard had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

advertisement

And, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence.

  via Getty Images  

Though she didn’t explicitly name Depp in her op-ed, she did allude to the time period when, “two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”

advertisement

There was an outpour of support for Heard…

  via Getty Images  

Who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union’s “Ambassador for Women’s Issues.”

advertisement

And, despite profusely denying all the allegations against him…

  via Getty Images  

Depp found his career taking a hit as a result of the ongoing scandal.

advertisement

Fewer and fewer directors were hiring Depp for roles…

  via Getty Images  

And his appearance in J.K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald, was heavily criticized.

advertisement

And, in 2018, he was dropped from his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

  via Getty Images  

In a career-shattering announcement just 4 days after Heard’s damning article, Disney announced that the actor would no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

advertisement

Though they didn’t directly cite Heard’s abuse allegations…

  via Getty Images  

It was widely assumed that Disney, who has earned over $4.5 billion at the box office from the Pirates franchise, was trying to distance themselves from the actor and the scandal surrounding him.

advertisement

But then, there was a sudden change in events.

  via Getty Images  

Depp filed a $50-million defamation case against Heard and presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around.

advertisement

Shockingly, the actor alleged that he was the victim all along.

  via Getty Images  

Depp’s defamation lawsuit read: “The op-ed [Heard’s article] depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”

advertisement

The lawsuit also stated that all of Heard’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false”…

  via Getty Images  

And listed down incidents of Heard’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks.

advertisement

The allegations are difficult to read.

  via Getty Images  

“She hit, punched, and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls, and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me.” His lawsuit read.

advertisement

And, to tarnish the actress’ reputation and credibility even further…

  via Getty Images  

Audio obtained by the Daily Mail was released that heard her admitting to attacking Depp.

advertisement

As per the audio clip, she could also be heard taunting him…

  via Getty Images  

“You are such a baby. Grow the f*** up, Johnny. You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn’t matter how friendly it is, it’s not cool,” Heard can be heard saying.

advertisement

The case was grueling…

  via Getty Images  

Depp then went to court for his libel case against The Sun newspaper – whom he is suing over a 2018 article in which he was described as a “wife-beater.”

advertisement

The pair were in court as part of the 3-week long trial.

  via Getty Images  

While in court, both parties played pretty dirty, revealing compromising photographs of each other which have blown everything out of the water, yet again. And of course with the evidence came more allegations.

advertisement

But things didn’t go Depp’s way…

  via Getty Images  

And he lost the case.

advertisement

Of course, this massive loss was terrible for the actor’s name…

  via Getty Images  

But he isn’t giving up his fight.

advertisement
  via Getty Images  

To make it look like he was repeatedly abusing her, when in fact, according to Depp it was the other way around.

advertisement

As per Page Six, lawyers working on the case claim that Heard altered photos making her appear to have 2 black eyes…

  via Getty Images  

Alleging she was attacked by him in 2015.

advertisement

Depp’s lawyer, Benjamin Chew claimed: “Ms. Heard’s counsel has repeatedly used these phony photographs at deposition.”

  via Getty Images  

He also shared that he believes the LA Police Department “disavowed the photographs” that were previously given to the court and “did not depict what they saw.”

advertisement

Chew revealed that the LAPD “found no injury upon Ms. Heard and no disruption to the penthouses” upon inspection…

  via Getty Images  

“Ms. Heard and her friends then fabricated photos that she used to obtain an ex parte TRO [temporary restraining order] and a $7 million divorce settlement which Ms. Heard falsely testified in London she gave to the ACLU and, more scandalously, to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles; sick children with cancer,” he added.

advertisement

Chew concluded that someone “doctored those photographs.”

  via Getty Images  

“So, Ms. Heard or someone on her behalf doctored those photographs three years later. When that came up in her testimony in London, Ms. Heard falsely denied it. In short, Your Honour, without forensic imaging Mr Neumeister cannot properly assess or verify Ms. Heard’s data,” Chew added.

advertisement

Since Chew exposed Heard’s alleged false claims, the court has granted Depp and his lawyers access to her phone records…

  via Getty Images  

They will also be analyzed by Brian Neumeister, who is a tech expert.

advertisement

And, we’ve seen some huge celebrity names in the defamation case between the two actors.

  via Getty Images  

There are many more who have been dragged into the defamation case.

advertisement

Paul Bettany will be a witness for Depp.

  via Getty Images  

And, according to Cinemablend, Heard’s legal team will use Bettany’s texts with Depp against them, displaying violent language targeted at Heard.

advertisement

Heard’s exhibit list includes names we’re all familiar with…

  via Getty Images  

There will be text messages and email conversations between Heard, Jason Momoa, and James Wan, as per the news outlet.

advertisement

There are also emails logged from author JK Rowling and guitarist Jack White.

  via Getty Images  

Who else is involved?

Ellen Barkin, an American actress, will be on Heard’s witness list, and she has spoken up about Heard’s allegations in the past.

advertisement

“Amber Heard was never enough of a victim,” she wrote.

  via Getty Images  

“And we never will be… Unless we’re dead,” she continued.

advertisement

Depp is suing Heard for defamation, claiming that his reputation has been tarnished because of the things she has said during their battle.

  via Getty Images  

And Heard is countersuing him, which is why so many big names have been dragged into the case, as well.

advertisement

Now, since the case began, a lot of people have taken to the stand…

  via Getty Images  

And on April 19th, it was Depp’s turn.

advertisement

Depp took to the stand at Fairfax County courthouse where he described Heard’s claims as “heinous and disturbing,” LADbible reports.

  via Getty Images  

He said that her allegations were “criminal acts against me that were not based in any species of truth.”

advertisement

Depp went on to deny striking Heard and any woman in his life.

  via Getty  

“Never did I myself reach the point of striking Miss Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life,” he told the court. “Since I knew there was no truth to it whatsoever, I felt it my responsibility to stand up, not only for myself in that instance, but stand up for my children.”

advertisement

Depp then further detailed the effect that the allegations had on his children.

  via Getty Images  

“I thought it was diabolical that my children would have to go to school and have their friends or people in the school approach them with the infamous People Magazine cover with Miss Heard with a dark bruise on her face,” he said.

advertisement

Describing himself as a “very private person,” the actor said that for him “to come up here and sit before you all and spill the truth is quite exposing, and it’s unfortunate that it’s not only exposing for myself, it’s exposing for my family, it’s exposing for Miss Heard, it never had to go in this direction.”

  via Getty Images  

He also added that his goal is “the truth” and that he isn’t embarrassed because “I know I’m doing the right thing.”

advertisement

The trial is now in its fourth week in court.

  via Getty Images  

And with Depp’s testimony finished, Heard has taken to the stand.

advertisement

However, in a shocking turn of events…

  via Getty Images  

Heard’s legal team tried to have the case dismissed.

advertisement
  via Getty Images  

According to the Independent, the dismissal is argued on the grounds that Depp’s legal team has not proven malice and that headline for The Washington Post op-ed was not written by Heard.

advertisement

But, despite the attempts for dismissal, it was denied.

  via Getty Images  

The outlet reports that Judge Penney Azcarate denied Heard’s attempt to dismiss the case striking 2 motions while keeping one under advisement.

advertisement

Subsequently, the trial continued this week, with Heard’s witness, Dr. Dawn Hughes, a clinical and forensic psychologist, taking to the stand on Tuesday.

  via Getty Images  

Hughes hit back at the comments made by Depp’s witness Dr. Curry, in which she claimed Heard had 2 personality disorders and was lying about her PTSD symptoms.

advertisement

She shared that after evaluating Heard herself for twenty-nine hours, she concluded she was a victim of domestic abuse.

  via Getty Images  

On top of the previous allegations of both physical and s*xual violence made by Depp while he was under the influence, Heard also told Hughes that he performed a “cavity search” on her.

advertisement

She detailed that Depp “performed a cavity search and ostensibly was looking for drugs.”

  via Getty Images  

It was alleged that “these incidents often happened in a drug-fueled rage,” Hughes said.

advertisement

She also outlined other abuse Heard reported to her…

  via Getty Images  

Stating that when Depp “was drunk or high he threw her [Heard] on the bed, ripped off her nightgown.” Adding: “These weren’t loving moments, these were dominant moments.”

advertisement

As well as this, Hughes said Depp was “obsessively jealous.”

  via Getty Images  

She alleged that he would “persistently put her down” and make it difficult for her to work on set with him often calling to say “I got eyes down there, I got eyes on set.”

advertisement

Dr. Hughes said: “He tried to control what she wore. He told her often no woman of mine is going to dress like a wh*re.”

  via Getty Images  

And that Depp apparently said to Heard: “You’re going to go out with those t*ts and a**?” when she was leaving for an audition.

advertisement

Hughes claimed that Heard suffered a “barrage of accusations of infidelity.”

  via Getty Images  

Explaining one incident where “she [Heard] gets on the plane, [Depp] starts talking about James Franco, making a lot of derogatory comments, hope you had fun with your escapades.

advertisement

“There was an argument when she got up to leave, he kicked her in the back and she went forward.”

  via Getty Images  

He also allegedly told her to avoid nude scenes when applying for roles and even accused Heard of having affairs with men and women, most notably her co-stars Billy Bob Thornton and James Franco. 

advertisement

In response to her comments, Depp’s lawyers asked Hughes more on Heard’s relationship with Franco.

  via Getty Images  

They even went as far as to show her private notes, that were written in confidence between Heard and Hughes, in court

advertisement

The note, titled “Intimate relationships,” went on to list all of Heard’s past significant others, starting with her boyfriend “Travis,” who she dated between the ages of sixteen to eighteen, and was labeled a “good guy.”

  via Getty Images  

Next on the list was “Eduardo, a ‘Catholic Activist'” who she was in a relationship with for just 1 year, and admitted they had “no s*x.”

advertisement

After that was “Valentino,” who was described as “fun-loving” who she dated from nineteen to twenty. After that ended, she had a “casual” fling while in Mexico with a man named “Mark.”

  via Getty Images  

Then came her first serious relationship with her girlfriend “Tasya,” which lasted 5 years. After which came Depp.

advertisement

But what interested the lawyers was comments made about Heard’s relationships prior to Depp, the initials J.F., or James Franco, and Elon, as in Elon Musk.

  via Getty Images  

Hughes insisted that the line separating the names indicates they were talking about other things. Depp’s lawyer read out part of the document that said: “JF — got close — but really wanted to be with Johnny.”

advertisement

“She wasn’t telling me this was an intimate relationship,” Hughes clarified. “I queried as to what’s going on with James Franco because that was something that was raised in this case.”

  via Getty Images  

After being asked whether Heard and Franco became close while Heard was married, she replied that December 2015 is “when they became more friends… more friendly,” which indicates they were together while Heard was with Depp.

advertisement

The next was in May of 2016 when she got close with “Elon” after the Met Gala.

  via Getty Images  

Hughes notes of their relationship stated that Heard “was heartbroken / my soul was dead / felt nothing then.”

The trial continues…
