Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 35, for defamation after she penned an op-ed for The Washington Post back in 2018, in which she claimed to be a survivor of domestic violence. He says the piece was an obvious reference to their own relationship. The actor denies ever striking his ex-wife.

On Wednesday, the Pirates of the Caribbean star took the stand for the second time in his current defamation trial.

At one point during his testimony, Depp recalled seeing a photo of excrement on the bed he shared with Heard following an argument they had.

He had arrived late to his then wife's 30th birthday party at their penthouse, which Heard supposedly did not take well.

The actor said he'd hoped to collect his belongings from their shared residence while the Aquaman actress was at Coachella, but he was advised by his security guard, Sean Bett, that it wasn't a good time.

Per Entertainment Weekly, he told the court on Wednesday: "I had received some news. I was shown a picture of what the problem was. I had gone to Mr. Bett and said, 'She's at Coachella. I think it's a good time to go downtown so that I can get some of my things and get them out of there,' especially things that were precious to me.

"And he said, 'I don't think now's a good time to go.' And I thought, 'It's the perfect time. She's not going to be home for two days.' Then he showed me a photograph on his telephone of... it was a photograph of our bed, and on my side of the bed, was human fecal matter."

He continued: "I understood why it wasn't a good time to go down there. My initial response to that was, I mean... I laughed. It was so outside. It was so bizarre and so grotesque that I could only laugh. So I did not go down there that day."

Depp said he later discussed divorce with Heard, telling her he wouldn't cite irreconcilable differences or refer to the violence in their relationship - only that "we simply don't want to feel we have a collar around each other's necks" and "want to end this with love and take the idea of ownership of one another out of the picture."

"I figure she understood as well as I did there was no way back," Depp continued. "I also felt she would understand it was the best thing for the both of us."

Heard then apparently raised the topic of the fecal matter and "tried to blame it on the dogs," Depp said.

He told the jury: "They're teacup Yorkies. They weigh about 4 pounds each. The photograph that I saw — I lived with those dogs for many years. It was not the dogs... I didn't feel like I deserved that kind of treatment."
