The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard is set to enter its final week on Monday with Depp returning to the witness stand.
He testified in the case in April and took the spotlight as he claimed Heard was the aggressor in the relationship. She, in turn, has tried to portray Depp as willing to use violence and influence to silence her.
Court returns for its last week
The defamation trial returned Monday morning for its last week of testimony. Closing arguments are scheduled for Friday, when the jury will begin its deliberations.
