The breathtaking trial between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard ended in a verdict in favor of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star on Wednesday, ending a breathtaking court saga that occupied the nation for weeks.
Shocking moments from the couple’s volatile relationship — including pictures of Depp’s severed finger and photos of him being incapacitated after apparent drug excesses — surfaced during the Fairfax, Virginia trial.
Here are some of the strangest, wildest, and most disturbing moments from the process:
The mysterious feces
In one of the most bizarre moments of the trial, Depp accused Heard of defecating in the bed they shared after an argument on her birthday in 2016.
A photo of the alleged incident was shared in court, sparking a Saturday Night Live sketch and fueling the derogatory hashtag #Amberturd.
Heard denied defecating in bed and said the couple’s Yorkshire terrier, Boo, has problems with bowel control and is the real culprit.
“I don’t find that funny,” Heard said. “I don’t know what grown women do… It’s disgusting.”
The “cavity search“
Heard sobbed on the stand as she recalled a harrowing encounter in May 2013 when she said Depp performed a “cave search” on her while he stumbled upon psychedelic mushrooms.
Heard said she and Depp both took the drug in Joshua Tree, Calif., when Depp accused her of hiding drugs, tore her dress, and began groping her.
“He told me, ‘We’re doing a cavity search,'” she testified.
“He just shoved his fingers inside me,” she continued, adding that she “just stood there and faced the stupid light” as he twisted his fingers around inside her.
I disagree… with myself!
Heard’s attorney Adam Nadelhaft became the butt of a joke when he objected to his own question – prompting Judge Penney Azcarate to call him.
Nadelhaft had asked Depp’s house manager Ben King about a 2015 dispute between Depp and Heard that resulted in Depp’s fingertip being severed.
“You didn’t know what could damage Mr. Depp’s hand when you were there on March 8th, right?” asked Nadelhaft.
King said a doctor told him about the injuries, to which Nadelhaft replied, “Uh, objection, hearsay.”
“Wait – you asked the question,” the judge replied.
Damn impotent pictures
Photos have been released showing Depp freaking out after several alleged drug excesses, including on the floor of a posh hotel room.
Heard testified that she began documenting Depp’s alcohol and drug use because no one believed he had a problem.
“There was nobody to support me. Just his employees and everyone who supported him against me. So I started taking photos,” she says.
The judges were shown several pictures Heard took of Depp passing out in various places, including curled up on the floor during a press tour for The Lone Ranger in Tokyo in 2013.
British fashion icon Kate Moss, 48, testified via a video link that Depp, who she dated in the ’90s, never pushed or hit her.
Her brief statement came after Heard cited rumors that Depp pushed her down a flight of stairs.
Met Gala “Broken Nose”
Heard told the jury that she believed Depp broke his nose after hitting her during a fight after the 2014 Met Gala.
“At the Met Gala, he accused me of flirting with a woman. We go back to the hotel room, he pushes me and grabs my collarbone. I remember he threw a bottle at me, missed me and hit the chandelier,” Heard testified.
The Edward Scissorhands star allegedly hit her and broke her nose.
“At one point he just punched me in the face,” Heard said of the alleged incident. “I wasn’t sure what that felt like, but I assumed I had a broken nose. I also remember that my nose was swollen and discolored.”
“A pint of wine”
In a video secretly recorded by Heard, the jury watched as Depp smashed his own kitchen cabinets after drinking “a mega pint of red wine.”
“Motherfu-ker!!” Depp was heard screaming as he hit a wall.
“I poured myself a large glass of wine. I felt it was necessary,” Depp said of the incident. ‘[It was] a mega pint.”
“Obviously I was having a bad time. I don’t know what in relation to that, but being illegally recorded by your chosen one goes very well with the other photos and tapes,” he said.
Sexual assault with a bottle
Heard cried as she recalled Depp allegedly threatening to ‘cut up’ her face with a liquor bottle – and then inserted it into her during a fight in Australia in March 2105.
“I didn’t know if the bottle he had in me was broken,” she said, breathing heavily while holding back tears. “I couldn’t feel it. I couldn’t feel anything.”
She said the troubling incident happened during the same fight that left Depp with a severed finger, which Depp claimed was when Heard threw a vodka bottle at him.
