Ben King, the actor's house manager, was on the stand when Rottenborn halted his statement citing a "hearsay objection."

Ben King was asked about the incident where Depp got his finger injured. He started giving his testimony:

"Dr. Kipper had told me he had sustained an injury on one of his --"

Then, he was interrupted by Rottenborn.

The case in Virginia gained attention from all across the globe. Since the cameras are allowed inside, people get live feeds on social media.

Depp, 58, is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, over an op-ed in Washington Post from 2018.

Heard did not directly name Depp, but his attorneys claim that the piece, which paints Amber as a victim of domestic violence, brought grief to his career and personal life.

Depp was dropped from several big-budget projects following the allegations, including the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and Harry Potter's prequel franchise Fantastic Beasts. She refers to herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse."

Amber's team responded by suing Depp with 100 million dollars, double the amount Depp's team requested for defamation.
