Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial: When did their relationship begin and how long were they together?

Former couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are locked in a high-profile defamation lawsuit over Heard’s claims of domestic abuse.

Hollywood actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are waiting for the veredict in a $50 million defamation case

some seven years after embarking on a marriage that quickly fell apart amid claims by Heard of domestic abuse.

The dramatic trial is about to come to an end and maybe it is time to look back to where all of this started.

Depp has brought the lawsuit against Heard over an op-ed

she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, in which she didn’t mention her former husband by name

but described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”.

Heard, best known for her role in the 2018 superhero film Aquaman, is countersuing Depp for $100 million.

Depp and Heard first met in 2009 while shooting the movie The Rum Diary, in which both starred.
