'I survived that man': Amber Heard ends testimony in Johnny Depp libel trial

Amber Heard wrapped up her testimony Tuesday after four days on the witness stand in the libel suit filed against her by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Depp's attorney CamilleVasquez on Tuesday afternoon ended her cross-examination of Heard, which was followed by the redirect questioning of Heard, lasting only a few minutes, as Depp's lawyers objected to nearly every question that Heard's lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, tried to ask.

A portion of the cross-examination regarded a fight Heard had with Depp in Australia in March 2015. The actress previously testified that he sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle during the fight, and he has testified that she severed the tip of his finger. Both have denied the other's allegations.

"I just remember being aware that I was being assaulted by a bottle on the countertop," Heard alleged. "This was a multi-day assault that took place over three horrible days."

When asked why there was no evidence of injury from her sexual assault, she confirmed she "didn't seek treatment."

Vasquez said Heard didn't seem to be scared of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor despite the alleged assault.

"This is a man who tried to kill me," Heard testified in response. "Of course it's scary. He's also my husband."

Vasquez recounted several instances in which Heard wrote in a "love journal" about her relationship with Depp and text exchanges following the incident in Australia.

"I'm sorry I can get crazy. I'm sorry I hurt you. I think, like you, I can get wicked when I'm hurt, when I feel provoked, shattered and last night I was. I felt a little bit bewildered about you not coming home last night. I was heartbroken and angry after many attempts in vain on my part," Heard said in one text to Depp. "You are the last person I ever meant to hurt. I love you. I am forever yours."

Vasquez also questioned why Heard wrote a series of love notes to Depp in the months after she said she was assaulted. Heard has said she believed Depp had hit rock bottom after the Australia fight and was committed to sobriety. She has said most of the assaults occurred while Depp was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The actress was later questioned by her attorney about why she stated that Depp has been unable to look at her during their U.K. trial and during this trial. "He's guilty. He knows he's lying otherwise why can't he look at me," Heard testified. "I survived that man and I'm able to look at him."
