For the past few weeks, Depp and Heard, who married in 2015 and divorced in 2016, have been arguing in court. On May 5, Heard, 36, testified against her ex-husband, revealing the alleged physical abuse she suffered at his hands. She stated in court, "My head was bleeding from the ripped out hair chunks of hair on the floor all over the place.”  "I thought this is how I die. He is going to kill me and he won't even have realized it ... I just could hear myself scream until I couldn’t hear myself anymore. I could just hear him say he was going to kill me,” she added. Depp and his attorneys issued a statement following her dramatic testimony, alleging that she had been ‘giving the performance of her life’ on the stand in the Virginia courtroom.

Earlier, Heard claimed she was the victim of abuse in an op-ed for The Washington Post in 2018. Despite the fact that she didn't mention Depp by name, he claimed the piece wrecked his career and sued her for defamation. Heard, on the other hand, is standing by her accusations and has filed a countersuit against the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean star.’ Depp has also previously claimed that he never abused Heard. "The only person I’ve abused in my life is myself. Sir, if anyone had a problem with my drinking, at any time in my life, it was me,” he remarked. The ongoing trial will resume again on May 16 after a week's break.
