Amber Heard has given her final testimony in the multimillion-dollar defamation battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The “Aquaman” actress Amber Heard, told jurors in her final testimony that she had been faced with daily harassment and death threats since she accused the Hollywood star Johnny Depp of abuse.

“I’ve received hundreds of death threats regularly, if not daily. Thousands since this trial has started, people mocking, mocking my testimony about being assaulted.”

She added, “It’s been agonising, agonising, painful humiliating no one ever has to go through something like this. I just want Johnny to leave me alone. I’m not sitting in this courtroom snickering, I’m not sitting in this courtroom laughing, smiling, making snide jokes. I’m not. This is horrible, this is Painful. This is humiliating for any human being, to go through. And perhaps it’s easy to forget that I’m a human being even though Johnny promised and promised that he’d do this, I don’t deserve this. I want to move on. Johnny has taken enough of my voice. I have the right to tell my story. I have the right to say what happened to me. I have the right to my voice and my name. He took it long enough.”

The 36-year-old actress expressed herself to the jury explaining how her and her baby’s life is at risk. She told the jury that people want to “kill my baby in the microwave.”
