“I just want Johnny to leave me alone,” she said.

When asked by her attorney Benjamin Rottenborn to describe the impact of her allegations of abuse, the Rum Diary actress said: “I am harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day. Even just walking into this courtroom. Sitting here in front of the world. Having the worst parts of my life, things I lived through, used to humiliate me.”

She added: “People want to put my baby in the microwave, and they tell me that.”

Heard has a one-year-old daughter named Oonagh Paige Hurd.

Depp returned to the stand on Wednesday (25 May) to provide further evidence regarding his relationship with his former spouse.

He also denied Heard’s allegations of abuse and called her claims 'unimaginably brutal, cruel and all false'.

On Wednesday, Depp’s lawyers called his ex-girlfriend and supermodel Kate Moss to testify after Heard mentioned a rumour involving the former couple as part of her testimony.

Depp rested his case at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia on Thursday (26 May).

Judge Azcarate has scheduled closing arguments for Friday (27 May). The trial has stretched over six weeks and is scheduled to end this week.

The 58-year-old actor sued Heard, 36, in a $50 million (£40.1million) defamation lawsuit over abuse claims she made in a written piece for The Washington Post in 2018.

Depp’s legal team argued that the article implies Heard was physically and sexually abused by Depp when they were married, although the article does not refer to him by name.
