Amber Heard has opened up about a harrowing alleged incident that involved Johnny Depp performing a cavity search on her.
The actor took the stand for the first time at Depp's defamation trial to testify about her ex-husband's behaviour while they were married.
She explained how during a group holiday at Hicksville Trailer Palace in Joshua Tree, California, Depp confronted her inside one of the trailers.
“It became clear he was looking for something,” Ms Heard explained to the court.
She added that Depp asked her 'where are you hiding it?' however she had no idea what he was talking about.
Heard recounted how her then-husband started 'patting me down'.
“He rips my dress ... he’s grabbing my breasts, he’s touching my thighs, he rips my underwear off," the actor told the court.
“He then proceeds to do a cavity search. He said he was looking for his drugs, his cocaine.”
Heard became visibly emotional during this story and paused several times to stop herself from crying.
She recalled how Depp 'shoved his fingers inside me' and twisted them around to try to find cocaine.
The actor said her then-husband's actions 'made no sense' and she 'didn’t know what to do'.
"I just stood there...staring at the stupid light," she said.
The testimony came a day after forensic and clinical psychologist Dr Dawn Hughes told the court about the same incident and how it was an example of Depp's 'sexual violence' against Heard.
Hughes told the court that the Pirates of the Caribbean star was 'was drunk or high he threw [Heard] on the bed, ripped off her nightgown and tried to have sex with her'.
She also told the court another harrowing story against Depp: "He forced her to give him oral sex when he was angry.
"These weren't loving moments, these were dominant moments."
Hughes described 'alcohol fuelled' incidents where the actor could become irate if he couldn't follow through with sex.
"If he was not able to perform he would get more angry at her and blame her," Dr Hughes told the court.
The psychologist's testimony kicked off Amber Heard's defence against her ex-husband, who has sued her for $50 million ($AUD 70.4m, £40m) in a defamation suit.
Heard has counter-sued for $100 million ($AUD 140.8m, £80m).
Depp's legal action came after Depp wrote a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, which was headlined: "I spoke up against sexual violence - and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change."
While Heard didn't name Depp in the article, it was 'reasonably inferred' that she was talking about her former husband.Featured Image Credit: Law Crime Network/Twitter
