The legal battle between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard has become the most talked-about celebrity story of the year.
After three weeks of testimony, the defamation trial in Fairfax County, Virginia, will take a break for just over a week.
The trial began on April 11 earlier this year. People are camping outside the courthouse to broadcast the trial live, despite the fact that it is televised daily Monday through Friday.
Heard took his first stand last week. She accused Depp of being assaulted several times. Depp denied all of her allegations.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star sued Heard for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post article. After the post, Depp lost nearly $40 million and left Pirates of the Caribbean and Fantastic. Beast series.
Heard demanded $100 million from Depp.
The two were married from 2015 to 2017. The two now claim to have physically assaulted each other during their relationship. However, both sides continue to deny the allegations raised by the other.
