Johnny Depp is suing his ex-wife for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed in which claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse.

Even though Heard did not use Depp's name but it was obvious that the article was directed toward her ex-husband. Depp told the court that due to these allegations he suffered greatly in his life and both his career and his personal life got affected negatively. 

Heard, 36, is countersuing for $100 million - claiming she was only ever violent against Depp in self-defense or defense of her younger sister, per NBC News.

As Heard took the stand, she has made several allegations against Depp, including claims of sexual violence, Depp having an affair soon after their wedding, and Depp stopping Heard from pursuing her career due to his jealousy towards her co-stars.

However, during her testimony this week, Heard also spoke about how she believed Depp was "the love of her life" and recalled his "impulsive" proposal without an engagement ring.

As reported by CBS News, talking about their relationship with Depp, Heard claimed that it was her who suggested to the actor to sign a prenuptial agreement prior to their wedding on Depp’s private island in 2015.

Heard testified to the court that when she gave Depp the idea, he strongly opposed it.

Heard told the courtroom: "[Depp] said, 'If you ever brought one up to me or if ever saw one got my hands on it I'd tear it up, any way out of this is death. The only way out of this is death.'"

Heard said that she believed a prenup would "eliminate suspicion or doubt" and it would only serve to make moving forward in the relationship "easier".

Heard told the court, Depp, saw her proposal about the agreement as a sign that she wanted to end their relationship.

"[Depp said], 'Are you already thinking of how you're getting out of this? Are you already planning to get out of this, you're already planning on leaving?' That was around the same time of moving in together conversation. He accused me having one foot out," Heard testified.

Meanwhile, Heard's version of events is completely different from Depp's testimony - who claimed that it was Heard who went "into a tailspin" over the suggestion of a post-nuptial agreement that had apparently been presented to her by his lawyers.

"[Heard] kept saying, 'I'm not even in your will. I'm not even in your will,'" Depp told the court. "I thought that was an odd thing to say. Especially since I don't think anybody had had time to change wills or anything of that nature."

Depp told the court that Heard believed that by suggesting the agreement, he was trying to 'trick' her.

The ex-couple got married in 2015 and separated only a year later in 2016. There divorce was finalized in 2017.

Heard will continue her testimony on May 16, and is due to be cross-examined by her ex-husband's lawyers.
