A video recording has revealed Amber Heard being booed while leaving court amid the ongoing lawsuit between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the Aquaman star after an op-ed piece she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, in which she insinuated she had been a victim of domestic abuse during the pair's marriage.

Both Depp and Heard have faced extreme scrutiny during the trial, with marriage counsellors, friends and psychologists having taken to the stand to give their views.

However, a section of the public appears to have turned against Heard, after footage posted to YouTube documented the boos yelled at the actress as she left court.

In the video, the camera holder can be hearding boo-ing the actress as she leaves the court building.

Other people can be heard joining in, blowing whistles and hurling insults at the actress.

One person even calls Heard a 'witch'.

Another asks her: "Where's the money for the charity?"

The camera zooms in on Heard before panning to the group who have gathered in the street to see her.

It slows down as the car passes by, with Amber noted by onlookers as having chosen to sit in the front passenger seat.

Another spectator was even caught on camera having brought along their alpaca for the ride.

During the trial, Depp has denied ever hitting Heard and claimed his ex-wife put a cigarette out on his face after throwing a vodka bottle at him, which severed his finger.

He has also claimed that he, opposed to Heard, is a 'victim of domestic abuse'.

However, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has also had violent text messages he wrote aired in court.

In one, Depp said he would have sex with Heard's corpse.

The court also heard an audio recording that revealed Depp begging Heard to cut him.

A psychologist hired by Depp's team revealed their assessment of Heard as having two psychiatric diagnoses.

Dr Shannon Curry explained how those with one of the conditions may 'file a restraining order or claim abuse [...] to essentially try to keep their partner from leaving in the moment'.

Heard is counter-suing her ex-husband for $100 million, claiming the 2018 opinion piece she wrote was truthful.
