The Hollywood lawsuit that has everybody talking will continue next week.

Johnny Depp's defamation case against former wife Amber Heard will resume court sessions on Monday, May 16, to determine who will be held liable for millions after the actor insisted his former wife defamed him in a 2018 The Washington Post opinion piece in which she claimed she was a domestic and sexual violence survivor. She did not directly name Depp in the article.

After weeks of firsthand testimony from the Pirates of the Caribbean star and the Aquaman actress, along with friends, family members, psychologists and experts, the upcoming week will see even more witnesses taking the stand to recall their accounts of the relationship between Depp and Heard.

One person who will be testifying on behalf of her brother will be the Dark Shadows actor's sister Debbie Depp. This will be Depp's second sibling to take the stand as a character witness after his other sister Christi Dembrowski testified last month.

Dembrowski recalled the abuse the siblings endured at the hands of their mother Betty Sue Palmer but how her brother "never" laid a hand on her.

Another person set to testify will be Depp's former girlfriend Ellen Barkin. However, after the Sea of Love actress was called to testify in the Edward Scissorhands star's 2020 libel suit against The Sun for labeling him a a "wife beater," Barkin may not be vouching for Depp's good character.

At the libel trial, Barkin claimed the actor once threw a wine bottle across a hotel room during an argument, which he denied, insisting that the actress fabricated her story because she held a "grudge" against him, as he only wanted a casual relationship with her.
