This week was the penultimate week in actor Johnny Depp's $50 million defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Monday began with Depp's lawyer, Camille Vasquez, cross-examining Heard, pointing out that there were no medical records that she was ever treated for the alleged injuries Depp caused her.

"I did not want to tell anyone," Heard explained. She stood her ground and called Depp an "abuser" during her testimony.


On Tuesday, Heard's cross-examination ended. Vasquez asked Heard about Depp's lack of eye contact. Heard confirmed that Depp told her she would never see his eyes again after filing for divorce and a subsequent temporary restraining order. Upon a redirect from her own lawyer, Heard gave her explanation of why he continued to avoid her gaze in the courtroom.

"He's guilty," Heard said. "He knows he's lying."

"Otherwise, why can't he look at me?" Heard continued. "I survived that man, and I'm here, and I'm able to look at him."

The court saw Heard's sister, Whitney Henriquez, take the stand Wednesday as the first witness to testify that she saw Depp hit Heard. Henriquez admitted she was close with Depp and referred to him as a brother but couldn't deny the evidence of abuse.

"I would occasionally see bruising, cut lips, split lips, weird marks, burns," Henriquez said.

Their last day in court this week saw the testimonies from Depp's former psychiatrist, business manager, and agent, who painted a picture of a troubled actor who had fallen on hard times during his relationship with Heard.

Tracey Jacobs, Depp's former agent of 30 years, referred to the actor as the "biggest star in the world," only to report that in the past 10 years "his star had dimmed." Depp never had a contract to appear in a sixth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, according to Jacobs.

Business manager Joel Mandel tried to warn Depp in 2015 about his "very dire financial circumstances," only to be fired as a result of their disagreements on money management.

Alan Blaustein's deposition was shown in court Thursday, with the psychiatrist citing Depp's "issues with anger," "feelings of jealousy," and impatience. Depp would often text Blaustein about his relationship troubles with Heard.

Despite Heard's and her sister's allegations, Depp had a hoard of fans supporting him inside and outside the Fairfax, Virginia, courthouse. Even his former co-star Eva Green showed her support on Instagram on Thursday.

"I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than it ever was for him and his family," Green captioned a photo of her next to Depp.

The trial will resume Monday, with closing arguments set for Friday.
