Depp filed suit against Heard over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in December 2018 in which she described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse."
The jury in the bitter defamation trial between "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard concluded deliberations for the day on Tuesday without reaching a verdict.
The Texas-born Heard, who had a starring role in "Aquaman," did not name Depp in the piece, but he sued her for implying he was a domestic abuser and is seeking $50 million in damages.
The 36-year-old Heard counter sued for $100 million, claiming that she suffered "rampant physical violence and abuse" at his hands.
Depp and Heard each spent days on the witness stand during the televised trial, which was attended by hundreds of fans of Depp and accompanied by a #JusticeForJohnnyDepp campaign on social media.
Video and audio recordings of the couple's heated and abusive arguments were played for the jury,which also reportedly showed pictures of the injuries Heard suffered during their volatile relationship
Hours of testimony were devoted to a grisly finger injury that Depp suffered while filming an installment of "Pirates" in Australia in March 2015
Heard said Depp would become a physically and sexually abusive "monster" during alcohol- and drug-fueled binges and resisted her repeated efforts to curb his drinking and drug use.
Depp testified that it was Heard who was frequently violent and said it has been "brutal" to listen to "outlandish" accusations of domestic abuse made against him.
"No human being is perfect, certainly not, none of us, but I have never in my life committed sexual battery, physical abuse," Depp said.
Both sides have claimed damage to their Hollywood careers.
