People have been twiddling their thumbs and logging onto YouTube every five minutes, hoping for a verdict for the highly televised case between Depp and Amber Heard.

Meanwhile, the jury works hard to deliberate over a highly challenging case. There are many factors that the jurors have to consider for both sides of the defamation suit.

During the trial, a purported incident between Heard and Depp came up where she laughed at the tattoo that Depp had in honor of one of his past partner, Winona Ryder. The ink originally read "Winona Forever," but he changed it to "Wino Forever" after splitting.

Many were attached to this couple, so fans' hearts were broken when they split, wondering why their favorite pair were no longer together. Ryder said she was in deep pain over the breakup.

Tim Burton, who directed them in the cult classic "Edward Scissorhands," said that it felt as if Depp had disappeared entirely after the split in that he wasn't himself.

In what the "The Stranger Things" actress labeled her first real heartbreak, her representative claimed that the situation was not complex. She stated that the two young stars had simply drifted from one another.

But, Depp told another story, stressing that consistently living in the public eye negatively affected their relationship. He implied that this was the reason for the breakup, stating that he regrets not being more private.

WHO IS WINONA RYDER DATING NOW?

While she and Depp shared a beautiful relationship and based on her speaking up for him, she does care about the Willy Wonka star; the actress has undoubtedly moved on romantically.

Ryder and fashion designer Scott Mackinlay has been dating for over a decade. He co-founded a line called Loomstate, which is meant to be socially aware and green.

Mackinlay is also highly supportive of Ryder's career, but it is challenging to find many details about their relationship. The actress now keeps her personal life private -- a lesson she learned the hard way.
