Amber Heard has testified for the final time as the defamation trial between her and ex husband Johnny Depp edges towards its conclusion.

It's been one of the biggest celebrity stories in years, partly due to it being streamed live on YouTube and also the involvement from a number of high-profile A-listers.

Most recently, Kate Moss took to the stand and insisted that her former partner never "pushed, kicked or threw her down any stairs", which she was praised for by fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Kate and Johnny dated for four years until they split in 1997.

Aquaman actress Amber Heard, 36, was called by her defence team as the last witness on Thursday, 26 May.

It was her opportunity to give the final word ahead of the closing statements, having recently revealed threats from people saying they will "put her baby in a microwave".

Speaking to the court on a previous occasion, she said: "I am harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day.

"Even just walking into this courtroom, sitting here in front of the world, having the worst parts of my life used to humiliate me. People want to kill me and they tell me so every day.

"People want to put my baby in the microwave and they tell me that.

"Johnny threatened, promised me that if I ever left him he'd make me think of him every single day I lived."

Johnny and Amber's legal teams made their closing statements on Friday, 27 May and it is now up to the jury to discuss and decide their final ruling.

Their final decision must be unanimous, which could stretch the wait out for a couple of hours, or several days.

If the jury fails to come to a collectively agreed outcome after a certain period of time, then a 'majority verdict' can be accepted.

Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp's defamation case began on April 11, 2022 in Fairfax, Virginia.

The case was made to the courts after Amber Heard's op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018, where she discussed being a victim of domestic abuse.

Despite not naming Johnny in her writing, he has since been dropped from global franchises including the Fantastic Beasts film series.

He claims that this is a direct result of her 'confession'.

It is now the jury's job to decide whether or not Amber Heard, who recently revealed why Johnny won't look at her in court, did in fact defame her ex husband with her article in the Washington Post.

Johnny is seeking $50m (£40m) in compensation, and – should he win – Amber will be ordered to pay the fee in damages.

She will also have to pay all of the court costs.

The jury can also recommend that he is awarded more or less than this amount.
