    The first witness will be called by Depp’s side, his sister Christi Dembrowski.

    The former spouses are preparing to square off over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post calling herself a domestic violence survivor.

    Depp claims he was booted from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise because of the ‘clear implication’ he was the abuser in Heard’s op-ed.

    He further alleges that his ex was the actual ‘perpetrator’ of the violent bouts that scarred their relationship.
