It may feel like this trial will never end, but it is supposed to soon!
According to iNews:
The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard enters its final week on Monday.
Depp is suing Heard, his ex-wife, for $50m over an article she wrote in The Washington Post in 2018, in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”.
Heard did not name Depp in the article, but he claims it has cost him acting roles.
She has counter sued him for $100m, claiming Depp defamed her when his legal team referred to her claims as “fake” and a “sexual violence hoax”.
The former couple, who were married from 2015 to 2017, both accuse the other of being physically violent during the relationship. They each deny the other’s claims.
Here’s how to keep up with the final week of proceedings.
When does the Depp-Heard trial end?
The trial is now scheduled to conclude on Friday 27 May.
It was originally set to end last Thursday, but had to be extended as there was more evidence to be heard.
Once all the evidence has been heard the lawyers for both Depp and Heard will make their closing statements, before the jury consider their ruling.
