Amber Heard and Jason Momoa's Relationship

As Amber Heard and Johnny Deep's $50 million defamation trial has pulled several high-profile names into the case including Aquaman star Jason Momoa, which brought the suspicions among the Aquaman fans about the relationship between Amber and Jason.

Though Jason Momoa has remained silent throughout the entire court proceedings so far, refraining from giving any public statement to indicate where he stands on the issue.

Rumors of a falling out between Amber and Jason began to circulate when Jason started following Johnny Deep on his Instagram. But Jason and Amber still have followed each other.

The last time fans got a glimpse of Amber and Jason's relationship was in 2018, when Amber made an appearance on Good Morning America. During the interview, it showed how the two clearly have a fun and jokey relationship but later it revealed that Warner Bros. almost dropped Amber entirely from the Aquaman sequel due to chemistry concerns.

Johnny, 58, sued his ex-wife for $50 million for an article she wrote in which she claims to be an abuse victim. Amber, 36, counter-sued for $100 million.

The parties are film actors who are married from 2015 to 2017. Previously accused by Amber of intimate partner violence, Johnny sued his ex-wife in February 2019 over an op-ed she wrote which was published by The Washington Post in December 2018. 

Johnny blamed Amber's op-ed for extensive financial losses to his career and claimed it damaged his ability to profit from his vocation. In the op-ed, Amber had described becoming a "public figure representing domestic abuse" and "seeing, real-time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse." 

Johnny's lawyer asked jurors to "hold Amber accountable for the lies." whereas Amber's team, in turn, said it was Johnny who is a bully and abuser, not to be trusted. The jury of seven must come to a unanimous decision for a verdict. They began their deliberations shortly after both sides delivered their closing arguments.

The judge said, "the case is not about who's a better spouse. It's about whether you think Ms. Amber may have been abusive to Mr. Johnny. If you think they were both abusive to each other then Amber wins. If Amber was abused even one time, then she wins."
