Who Has Yet to Testify in Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard Case?

We've already heard outrageous testimony from dozens of witnesses, but there's still so many more people yet to take the stand in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial.

Former married couple Depp and Heard are currently embroiled in a multi-million dollar defamation suit. Depp sued Heard for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed claiming to be a victim of domestic violence which Depp says resulted in a loss of earnings. Heard counter-sued him for $100 million.

The most recent day of the trial was on Thursday May 5, day 15, and court will reconvene for day 16 on Monday May 16 at the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia.

Check the full list of everyone who's already taken the stand to testify here.

Depp's legal team have already made their case and the rest of the people listed below feature on Amber Heard's witness list.

Some people, like Christi Dembrowski, Ben White and Isaac Baruch were listed as witnesses for Heard but have already testified as a witness for Depp.

Adir Abergel

Hairstylist and social media influencer Abergel has been called to testify on behalf of Heard.

He's a stylist to the stars and showcases his work with celebrities on his social media channels. Abergel has worked with some of the most famous women in the world including Kristen Stewart, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Garner.

In 2015 he posted a picture of his work with Heard as she attended the premiere of The Danish Girl in Los Angeles.

Amy Banks

Dr. Banks is a psychiatrist whose name was brought up during the 2020 trial between Depp and The Sun newspaper after it had called him a "wife beater."

Depp spoke to Dr. Banks over Skype twice as a cost of £1,000.

Ellen Barkin

A former girlfriend of Depp's, Drop Dead Gorgeous actress Ellen Barkin is listed to testify on behalf of Heard.

She has previously testified that he "seemed out of control." She also said, "He threw a wine bottle across the hotel room in Las Vegas while we were shooting Fear and Loathing."

In the 2020 court case with The Sun, Depp claimed her comments came as a result of a grudge as he did not reciprocate her feelings for him.

Robin Baum

Publicist Baum is accused of having a romantic relationship with Depp in 2011 after the pair were photographed kissing.

Jacob Bloom

Depp's former lawyer Jacob A. Bloom is also being called to testify by Heard's legal team. In 2018 Depp sued his former talent attorney and accused him of losing him $35 million. However, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge rejected the claim.

Connell Cowan

Dr. Cowan is a psychologist who had previously treated Heard. His name was mentioned in texts from Depp as he described "Cowan has done me the most cruel of favors."

Debbie Depp

While Christi Debrowski has already testified on behalf of Depp, his other sister Debbie has also been called as a witness on behalf of Heard's team.

James Franco

It is believed that while he was called as a witness, it is unlikely that Franco will take the stand to testify on behalf of Heard.

His name has been mentioned several times during the trial already as Depp was accused of being jealous of Heard's friendship with Franco. Heard claims his jealousy led to Depp angrily kicking her whilst on a flight from Boston to Los Angeles.

Jodi Gottlieb

Heard's former publicist Gottlieb has been called to the stand by her legal team.

Whitney Henriquez

Heard's sister Whitney Henriquez has already had her name mentioned multiple times in the current trial. It was alledged in court that Whitney and Amber could be seen laughing and re-enacting a "fake punch," which Depp's team argue was practice for Heard to "feign abuse from Depp."

Melanie Inglessis

Inglessis is a makeup artist who has worked with Heard. She claims to be the artist who covered Heard's bruises on her face before a 2015 appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Elon Musk

Another witness who's reportedly unlikely to take the stand as a witness, Heard dated multi-billionaire Musk after her relationship with Depp.

Musk and Heard dated for several months in 2017, after Heard and Depp had filed for divorce. Depp has accused Musk and Heard of having an affair while he was still married to Heard.
