From Elon Musk to severed fingers ... here is every detail so far
The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in Virginia has been dominating the media going on three weeks now.
Depp is seeking $50 million in damages after Heard claimed she was a survivor of domestic abuse in an op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018. While she didn't name Depp in the piece, his lawyers argue it was implied to be about him and negatively affected his career. She countersued Depp for $100 million.
The actor has already lost an earlier lawsuit he took in the UK over the same article that appeared in The Sun.
The trial is expected to last a total of six weeks.

Depp's bodyguard Malcolm Connolly testified and shared a photo of alleged injuries the Pirates star sustained on his honeymoon. Laughter also broke out in the court room when he was asked whether he had seen Johnny's penis while urinating during an alleged fight with Amber:
Starling Jenkins III, an executive chauffeur and security guard for Depp, claims Heard tossed the actor's phone over their balcony -- before he paid a homeless man $420, chicken tacos, chips, apples and Fiji Water to get it back:
One of the last witnesses called for the week during the defamation trial was Depp's longtime business manager, who opened up about the actor's financial situation, his now-ex-wife's demands in the divorce and whether Depp seemed intoxicated shortly before an alleged fight with Heard the night of her 30th birthday celebration:
