Eyes across the globe have been focused on Amber Heard and Johnny Depp for the past six weeks as the details of their tumultuous marriage have been revealed during their defamation case.

Heard has also countersued Depp for leading a ‘smear campaign’ against the actress after a former member of his legal team branded her domestic violence claims ‘a hoax’.

The news has gripped showbiz fans across the world, with every detail of their relationship being publicized in court.

Both Depp and Heard are used to high-profile relationships, with them both having dated a string of famous faces before and after their own tumultuous romance.

Here is the Aquaman actress’ full relationship history.
