On Wednesday, after two months long testimony, the jury team of Virginia's Fairfax County Circuit Court agreed with Johnny Depp's claims that his ex-wife Amber Heard has indeed defamed him over the years. After a six-week-long defamation trial during which the ex-lovers made a slew of shocking revelations, the Jury sided with Johnny Depp and awarded him $15 million in damages from Heard. 

The much-publicised case was all over the headlines for over two months now. During the trial, the ex-couple made a bunch of shocking revelations from the time when they were together: From sexual assault, missing fingertip, finding poop on the bed and many more.
