After 12 hours of jury deliberation, the Fairfax, Virginia, court sent an alert announcing that a decision was made reached moments ago. The verdict will be read at 3 PM ET.

Radar is told Depp will not be present in court for the verdict due to "previously scheduled work commitments." The actor flew to the UK over the weekend, where he performed two shows with his pal, fellow musician Jeff Beck.

Depp's ex-girlfriend Kate Moss, who testified in defense of the star, even showed up to watch him rock out on the stage. The supermodel testified that Depp did not push her down the stairs when they dated all those years ago.

Heard brought up the longstanding rumor when she took the stand last month.

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.
