The Johnny Depp defamation trial against Amber Heard enters its 24th day on Thursday, May 26. The process will be broadcast live on Philo, which offers a free trial, as well as fuboTV, which also offers a free trial.
Both sides are expected to present their final witnesses on Thursday, with closing arguments expected on Friday.
On Wednesday, Johnny Depp called his ex-wife’s allegations of sexual and physical abuse “insane” as he returned to the witness stand in his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard.
“Ridiculous, humiliating, ridiculous, painful, wild, incredibly brutal, cruel and all wrong,” Depp said when asked about his reaction to Heard’s allegations when she testified early in the trial.
Depp testified on Wednesday as a rebuttal witness – both he and Heard testified extensively at the beginning of the trial.
Depp is suing Heard in Fairfax County Circuit Court over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post in which she described herself as “a public figure who advocates domestic violence.” His lawyers say he was defamed by the article, although he never mentioned his name.
Depp has denied ever hitting Heard and says she was the perpetrator in the relationship. Heard has testified about more than a dozen counts of physical abuse she allegedly suffered at Depp’s hands.
Also on Wednesday, supermodel Kate Moss, a former girlfriend of Depp, denied that she had ever been pushed or attacked by Depp in the course of their relationship.
Moss also testified as a rebuttal witness. Heard referenced Moss in her statement and a rumor that Depp pushed Moss down a flight of stairs when they were dating.
