However, Depp's testimony wasn't the only bombshell dropped on Wednesday.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves, as there is a lot to unpack.

When the Pirates of the Caribbean star returned to the stand for the second time, he again vehemently denied any abuse allegations from his ex-wife.

"No human being is perfect, certainly not. None of us. But I have never in my life committed sexual battery, physical abuse, all these outlandish, outrageous stories of me committing these things and living with it for six years and waiting to be able to bring the truth out," he said.

"This is not easy for any of us. I know that," Depp continued in his testimony. "I don't think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth."

The 58-year-old star further testified that Heard's allegations against him were "insane," adding that her accusations had gotten "out of control" and were "horrible, heinous, ridiculous and humiliating."

Depp went on to call the claims "painful, savage, ludicrous, unimaginably brutal, cruel," and "all false."

"No matter what happens, I did get here and I did tell the truth, and I have spoken up for what I've been carrying on my back reluctantly for six years," he attested while under oath.

Former TMZ employee testifies on Depp's behalf

Things got spicy later in the day, when former TMZ writer Morgan Tremaine took the stand as a rebuttal witness for Depp's team.

Though both Heard's team and the news outlet tried to bar Tremaine from testifying, the motion was swiftly denied by the judge.

Tremaine - who was a field assignment manager for the outlet in 2016 - explained that the video of Depp slamming kitchen cabinets was received by TMZ on August 12, 2016, via a tip line.

"When I had clicked the direct link that we received and watched the video in its entirety, it was much shorter than the video we had received - the video that’s been played in this trial," Tremaine began.

He continued that in the beginning of the clip, it appeared that Heard was appearing to set up the camera.

"And then, there’s a bit at the end, where she's seemingly snickering and looks at the camera. That part was not present in what we received," he added.

When he was questioned by the Justice League star's lawyer, who accused Tremaine of "wanting his 15 minutes of fame" by testifying, he quickly shot her down.

"I stand to gain nothing from this," Tremaine rebutted, noting that he's made himself an enemy of TMZ for appearing.

Only two more days remain in the explosive defamation trial.
