She told the court on Wednesday: "I got angry at times but not into a rage that would cause me to throw anything at him".

She told the court that she always held out hope that he would get clean and sober.

Ms Laws then suggested that if Ms Henriquez had known of Mr Depp being violent towards her sister, she would not have lived in the penthouse next door to him, to which she replied: "It was happening and I chose to live there".

He denies the charges and claims Heard was the aggressor during their relationship.

Mr Depp is suing NGN and The Sun's executive editor Mr Wootton over the publication of an article on April 27 2018, with the headline: "Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be "genuinely happy" casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?"

Heard said Depp had struck her with the cast, prompting Laws to query why she had never stated this allegation before.

Depp, 57, denies abusing Heard and claims she was the aggressor during their tempestuous relationship.

She said she just wanted to be "left alone" after the breakup of her and Depp's tempestuous marriage and that she wanted to "save him the embarrassment".

Asked if she had thrown a bottle at Depp's head, smashing a mirror, she said she did break a bottle "very early" one evening, "before Johnny had started to throw the bottles at me".

Official case numbers rose to 273,788 on Sunday, with 14,188 deaths, Health Ministry spokeswoman Sima Sadat Lari said. He also disclosed that more than 200,000 patients have been hospitalized since February and almost 14,000 have died.

Taking the witness stand for a fourth straight day, Heard testified that everything she had said at the High Court in London was true.

In her testimony on Thursday, the actress-model reiterated allegations that Depp would go on a "bender" that often lasted days and abuse her when he was high on drugs or was drunk.

Ms Heard has been describing in more detail how she thinks Mr Depp lost the tip of one of his fingers during what she described as "a three day hostage ordeal " in Australia.

The court heard Ms Heard texted Mr Holmes just before 6pm to say: "Success - he's coming down". I retreated more... he didn't stop.

"I've not had the liberty of time or space or energy even to list every thought that crossed my mind", Heard said.

In his testimony, Depp said that he had been the one being mistreated by Heard and she had a history of being violent. Heard has said that she feared for her life while at the rented property on Australia's Gold Coast during a visit while Depp was filming the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" film. "It just matters because I love you". She said it appeared that Mr Depp had taken raw meat out of the fridge and placed all over the house, he had also smeared mashed potato and gravy on the walls mixed with blood.

The court heard that medical notes made by a nurse, Erin Boerum, who saw Ms Heard shortly after the alleged incident in Los Angeles, recorded that Ms Heard was "actively bleeding on her lip" and that she "briefly looked at the client's scalp but was unable to visualise haematomas the client described". The pair married in Los Angeles in February 2015.

The text was sent the day after Heard claims the actor hit her in the face with a mobile phone during an argument, and while she was considering obtaining a restraining order. She said he blamed his actions on "a self-created third party" that he referred to as "the monster".

Finally she was asked by her barrister Sasha Wass QC "Is what you have told this court the truth?" and Ms Heard replied "absolutely". Heard filed for divorce the next calendar year, and it had been finalized in 2017.
