On May 27, 2022, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's lawyers delivered their closing arguments at the defamation trial. After six weeks of dramatic testimony, the jury started deliberations in the lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

The trials focused on domestic abuse and damaged reputations between both parties. Johnny Depp's lawyer asked for the actor's life back by way of clearing his name and proving he was not the abuser as Amber Heard had painted. They also want her held accountable for her lies.

Heard's lawyer countered that the actress was unfairly maligned during legal proceedings in 2020 when Depp's lawyer at the time called her abuse accusations a hoax.

After the closing arguments, the seven jurors deliberated on the case and will return to the court on May 31, 2022, to decide whether Heard defamed Depp.

JOHNNY DEPP AND AMBER HEARD TRIAL: WHAT JOHNNY'S EX-GIRLFRIENDS HAVE SAID ABOUT IT

They mentioned many names during the trial, and one of them was Depp's ex-girlfriend, Kate Moss. The couple dated between 1994 and 1998, and Heard said she heard rumors of abuse in their relationship as Depp pushed Moss down the stairs.

When Moss testified, she revealed that Depp never pushed, kicked, or threw her down the stairs as Heard had mentioned. Instead, she slipped while they were on vacation, and Depp rushed to her side and tended to her.

Vanessa Paradis, his girlfriend of 14 years and mother of two of his children, said that Depp was a generous, kind, non-violent, and attentive person and father. She said Heard's accusations were:

"Nothing like the true Johnny I have known, and from my personal experience of many years, I can say he was never violent or abusive to me."

Ellen Barkin, whom he dated in 1994, testified that Depp was "controlling" and "jealous." She claimed that he once threw a wine bottle in her direction, but it did not hit anyone.

Winona Ryder said she was upset, shocked, and confused when she heard the accusations. She dated Depp between 1989 and 1993, and they were engaged at some point but called off their wedding. Ryder revealed that he was never violent towards her.

Jennifer Grey dated Depp in 1989, and they were engaged after two weeks and broke it off after nine months. Grey revealed that the details she heard in the trial were shocking because she did not recognize Depp as that person.

IF JOHNNY DEPP LOSES THE TRIAL AGAINST AMBER HEARD, WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO HIM?

Depp sued Heard for $50 million for loss of earnings because of an article she authored in The Washington Post in 2018. Heard will not pay his legal bills or the amount he has requested if he loses.

However, the jury could decide that he is entitled to some money for loss of income and award a smaller amount. He could also appeal against the decision, which would be effective if any significant new evidence or testimony arose post-trial.

A former California judge revealed that a win for Depp will send a message to people who make defamatory statements and expose them to legal liability.
