Camille Vasquez, Johnny Depp all-star lawyer, was all smiles when she arrived at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia Wednesday awaiting on the verdict for Depp v Amber Heard Trial.

Today is Day 3 of jury deliberations. 

Fans started to wonder if romantic feelings had developed between Depp and Vasquez during the six-week trial after they noticed a slew of flirty interactions between the two – including whispering in each other’s ears, giggling together, and sharing coy smirks with one another.

When asked earlier this month about her rumored relationship, the California litigator declined to answer.

Instead, she just laughed, brushed her hair aside and waved to the throngs of fans gathered outside.

A petition calling for DC Warner Bros to drop Amber Heard from the role of Queen Mera in Aqaman 2 has topped 4.4 million signatures.

The petition alleges that Heard has been ‘exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp’ during their multimillion-dollar court battle.

So far, over 4.4 million people have signed the petition, which is just short of the target of 4.5 million signatures.

Johnny Depp’s lawyers have filed a motion to strike an ‘inappropriate argument’ made by Amber Heard’s attorney in their closing argument.

The argument had asked jurors to consider the ‘message’ that ruling against her would send to other domestic abuse victims.

On Tuesday, Depp’s team asked Judge Penney Azcarate to instruct the jury to disregard that portion of the closing argument.

In their written argument, Depp’s attorney’s said Heard’s lawyer told the jury that its decision in the case would send a message to ‘every victim of domestic abuse everywhere.’

They argued that this meant the jury was being asked to focus on a larger social issue rather than the individual case set before them.

But Judge Azcarate said she would not entertain the motion because the jury are already deliberating.

The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial continues Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. in Fairfax, Virginia.

Jurors are set to resume deliberations at 9 a.m. at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Fairfax, Virginia.

The jury has deliberated for a total of nine hours since Friday, but no verdict has been reached.

A verdict could come as early as today. But jurors have a considerable amount of evidence to sift through, meaning it may take days for them to decide on a verdict. It’s not clear whether Depp or Heard will return to Fairfax for the verdict.

Depp, the 58-year-old ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star, sued ex-wife Heard in Virginia for $50 million and argued that she defamed him when she called herself ‘a public figure representing domestic abuse’ in a newspaper opinion piece.

Heard, 36, countersued for $100 million, saying Depp smeared her when his lawyer called her accusations a ‘hoax.’

The seven-person jury will continue deliberating on whether either actor was defamed and deserves millions of dollars in damages.

Jurors deliberated for about two hours Friday before adjourning for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. They deliberated for seven hours on Tuesday.
