    In a London courtroom, Johnny Depp took the stand, vehemently denying the "wife-beater" allegations made by the Sun. His lawyers branded Amber Heard's accusations as “invented,” maintaining that Depp had aspired to be nothing less than a “southern gentleman.” This marked the beginning of a three-week trial filled with explosive claims and intimate details of the couple's volatile relationship.

    Depp's testimony painted a picture of a tumultuous marriage, including an incident where he claimed Heard or one of her friends defecated in their marital bed. He described these actions as the final straw in their deteriorating relationship. On the flip side, the Sun stood firm in their description of Depp, arguing that their portrayal was "entirely accurate and truthful."
