Depp is suing ex-wife Amber Heard for $50 million over a 2018 op-ed she wrote about The Washington Post in which she describes herself as a “public figure representing domestic violence”.
Depp was not mentioned by name in the piece.
The case was adjourned for a week’s recess.
During the affair, another ex of Depp was mentioned – former model Kate Moss.
Moss stepped in when Heard told the jury about a fight the two men had in March 2015.
Heard recounted how she punched Depp in the face because she feared he was about to push her sister Whitney down the stairs.
“I don’t hesitate, I don’t wait — I just think, in my head, instantly about Kate Moss and the stairs,” Heard said.

“For me, the most interesting question is whether the mention of [the Moss allegation] or the rumor of this incident authorizes Johnny Depp’s team to bring evidence of Amber Heard’s past conduct in domestic violence,” Dhanidina said.
“If you go beyond the scope of the conduct in this case to include other violent conduct committed by your opponent, it is only fair that your opponent can do the same for you.”
