Amber Heard detailed further instances of verbal and physical abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of Johnny Depp as she continued giving evidence in the US defamation trial. Jurors at Fairfax County District Court heard the relationship became a “constant battle” and that Mr Depp had taken particular issue with her professional relationship with actor James Franco. The court heard audio clips of an incident on a plane in May 2014 in which Ms Heard alleges she was kicked and slapped by the actor. Mr Depp is suing Ms Heard for libel over a 2018 article she wrote in The Washington Post which his lawyers say falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her while they were together. The actor has denied all accusations.
