Eyewitnesses say Amber Heard's attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, cried as the trial ended.

Friday, Heard's and Depp's attorneys made final arguments in their $50 million lawsuit against the Aquaman star over a 2018 op-ed in which she accused domestic abuse.

His lawyers say she was referring to Depp without naming him. Heard claimed $100m.

Former couple accused each other of domestic abuse in Fairfax County, Virginia. Each denies violence.

After six weeks of testimony from stars and other witnesses, both sides' lawyers argued on the final day.

Twitter user @jamesfromcourt witnessed Bredehoft crying during court proceedings.

@jamesfromcourt answered a tweet about the lawyer "Before the jury left, #ElaineBredehoft hurried to the bathroom crying.

"She's unfortunate. When she emerged, we made her grin. Hooray!"

@jamesfromcourt said he didn't know why Bredehoft was crying but that the public attention must be hard for her.

Bredehoft was merely doing her job, Depp fans said.

@jamesfromcourt discussed Bredehoft's tears on Porncorned Planet.

"It was 5 o'clock, before the jury left," he claimed. Few waited for a judgement.

When she raced in crying, we were outside the restroom. Then another woman entered.

@jamesfromcourt Bredehoft left the bathroom red-nosed. Maybe she sniffled. She appeared better.

"She's cried in court before, so it was evident. We cried for her.

"We told her she was doing great when she emerged. Hard! Okay. NOT YOU She smiled, thanked me, and left.

@jamesfromcourt speculated that Bredehoft was furious because Depp fans criticised him on social media after the trial ended.

"Court has their phones. @jamesfromcourt said she's getting public attention she's not used to. She's never protected stars.

Heard's legal staff isn't unpleasant, he said. They probably know they're the crowd's least favourite.

"So much attention must be difficult... Working lawyers. It would be horrible if they performed differently or attempted less based on their client. That's commendable."

Bredehoft contacted Newsweek. After Memorial Day, the jury resumes deliberations.
