Meanwhile, Depp is across the pond in the United Kingdom, where he's played two shows since closing arguments ended on Friday.
A spokesperson for Heard told Radaronline.com that Depp's absence speaks volumes.
"Your presence shows where your priorities are. Johnny Depp plays guitar in the UK while Amber Heard waits for a verdict in Virginia. Depp is taking his snickering and lack of seriousness on tour," the Aquaman actress' representative told us in an exclusive statement on Wednesday.
We told you first — Depp will not be present in court to hear the verdict today.
"Due to previously scheduled work commitments made before the trial, Mr. Depp will not be physically present for today's 3pm verdict," his team revealed in a statement.
Instead, Depp "will be watching from the United Kingdom."
Depp and Heard have been facing off in court for the past six weeks over an op-ed she wrote, in which she described herself as a domestic violence survivor.
The actor sued Heard for $50 million, claiming her "false" allegations cost him several movie roles, including a $22.5 million contract for Pirates 6. Depp denied ever getting physical with his ex-wife, claiming she was the violent one during their relationship.
Heard countersued Depp for $100 million, alleging he was trying to ruin her reputation. Under oath, the actress sobbed while detailing her allegations of abuse. She also claimed that her then-husband sexually assaulted her with a broken vodka bottle.
Both sides had friends and former colleagues testify on their behalf.
The jury broke away after closing arguments ended on Friday. After 12 hours of deliberating, they reached a verdict on Wednesday.
Their decision in the Depp vs. Heard defamation battle will be handed down at 3 PM ET.
