We are now into the fourth week of the trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which resumes this Tuesday, May 3, after getting back underway yesterday.
The first three weeks of the trial saw Depp largely give his version of events before some witnesses close to the actor began to discuss their thoughts on the relationship between him and his ex-wife.
On Monday, we heard a security guard saw that he saw Heard punch Depp, while an agent stated that Depp missed out on 22.5 million dollars by not featuring in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 6‘ as a result of Heard‘s accusations.
It is expected that Heard will start her testimony this week, and perhaps even as early as today, with the judge looking to give equal time in the trial to each party.
The trial has come about after Depp filed a lawsuit against Heard for a domestic abuse column she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, despite not naming her ex-husband by name, but she then countersued to the tune of 100 million dollars.
