Depp has denied ever being violent with Heard, instead claiming she abused him during their relationship.

The actor's ex-lover, actress Ellen Barkin addressed the court in a recorded deposition on Thursday. Barkin stated Depp was never violent with her, but she once witnessed him throw a wine bottle across the room in a fit of rage while fighting with his friends and assistant.

Heard's team painted Depp as an abusive, angry drunk who had jealous issues and abused substances. His legal eagles fought back, putting several former employees on the stand who claimed they never saw the actor get violent with Heard.

The trial has been going on for weeks with closing arguments set to begin soon.

Depp filed a lawsuit against his ex for $50 million, claiming her "false" allegations of domestic violence cost him several movie roles, including a $22.5 million contract for Pirates 6.

His former agent testified that Disney never committed to putting Depp in the sixth installment as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Heard claimed she missed out on opportunities due to the lawsuit, including having to fight to stay in Aquaman 2. She countersued Depp for $100 million, alleging he was trying to ruin her reputation and career.
