Depp is suing Heard for $50m (£38.2m). He alleges that Heard implied that he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about domestic violence.

Heard is countersuing for $100m (£80.9m), accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.

On Thursday (19 May), before court proceedings began for the day, Depp had greeted cheering supporters outside the courtroom, joking that he had prepared “breakfast for all of them”.

When asked what he had made for them, Depp responded: “Waffles.”

He also slipped into his Captain Jack Sparrow character for fans, telling them: “He’s still around somewhere.”

On Wednesday 18 May, former *NSYNC singer Lance Bass came under fire for mocking Heard’s emotional testimony in a viral TikTok video.
