Amber Heard's deposition lasted seven hours.

The Magic Mike XXL star was questioned under oath by her estranged husband Johnny Depp's legal team at the weekend in relation to her claims the Mortdecai actor was abusive to her, and she was asked in "great detail" about claims of past violence.

According to TMZ, Amber was quizzed about a number of alleged incidents between her and the 53-year-old actor, not just the row they had on May 21, which signalled the end of their marriage after Johnny allegedly threw an iPhone at her.

During the questioning from the Pirates of the Caribbean star's lawyer, Blair Berk, Amber was asked why five concierges, two police officers and a number of security guards saw no signs of any sort of injuries following the alleged altercation in May.

The Danish Girl star insisted she was injured and couldn't account for what other people saw.

The deposition had been delayed a number of times, with Amber held up in the UK and missing a hearing, while the previous weekend she had spent nine hours at Johnny's lawyer's offices but was not questioned.

Meanwhile, another settlement offer is said to have been put on the table, with the legal representatives keen to have everything finalised before a trial is scheduled to begin on Wednesday.

Amber and Johnny split up in May and she was granted a temporary restraining order after accusing him of domestic abuse. Johnny has denied all allegations.
