Yesterday, the 36-year-old Aquaman star took the stand for the first time - weeks into the high-profile trial, which has seen Heard's lawyers accuse Depp of sexually and physically assaulting her. The 58-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor previously took the stand to refute the allegations.

Now, it was the turn of Heard, who wrote an op-ed in December 2018, in which she claimed to be a survivor of domestic abuse.

Her testimony proved to be an emotional one, with the actress fighting back tears as she alleged to the jury an account of a time when her ex-husband performed a "cavity search" on her.

Per BBC News, Heard told the court that she and Depp were on vacation at a "fancy trailer park" back in 2013. "We had made a plan to go with friends and we were going to do laughy drugs, like mushrooms, like mushrooms by the fire," she explained to her lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, who questioned her client on the witness stand.

She went on to recall how their friends listened to music around a camp fire, with a member of the group offering MDMA.

The Rum Diary star said at one point a woman leaned on her and put her head on her arm, which her then-husband did not take well and vocalized as much.

The woman apparently thought he was joking, with Heard specifying that she knew he wasn't."I knew in my body instantly that it wasn't a joke, but she didn't," Heard told her attorney.

While the woman held onto Heard's arm, Depp allegedly said to her: "You think you're touching my f****** girl? That's my f****** girl."

The woman purportedly started crying as Depp's voice became louder.

Heard said: "Johnny grabbed her wrist and kind of twisted it and held her into him and said 'do you know how many pounds of pressure it takes to break a human wrist, huh?'"

She and Depp then went back to his trailer, where it seemed like he "turned his rage on the trailer" and started "smashing things", she said.

As the couple rowed, Depp supposedly began looking for his drugs, asking Heard where they were.

She claimed he "ripped" a part of her dress and then "rips my underwear off."

"He proceeds to do a cavity search, he was looking for his drugs," she said.

Depp "just shoved his fingers into me," Heard said, "I just stood there staring at the stupid light, I didn't know what to do.... I didn't say stop or anything."

The Fantastic Beasts star is suing Heard for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post, which his legal teams says falsely suggests he physically and sexually assaulted her.
