The Johnny Depp v Amber Heard defamation trial continues to rumble on, and followers are poring over old video footage as more details emerge.

Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, for $50 million (£40 million) for insinuating he had abused her in a 2018 Washington Post article. Despite not explicitly naming the actor, he claims her allegations impacted his ability to work.

Now, people are looking over footage from seven years ago after he used the word “relatives” to describe his fans.

Dressed up as character Jack Sparrow at an event for the Pirates of the Caribbean series, he said: "I don't have fans," Depp said, "These are all relatives.”

After greeting them, he turns to the camera and says: “Relatives, they’re all relatives.”

“Soooooo……im basically 16th cousin with johnny,” another said.

It comes after Heard continued to give testimony this week, having previously spoken about the pair's troubled relationship and graphic allegations against Depp.
