Woman Shouts In Courtroom That Johnny Depp Is The Father Of Her Baby
| Last updated
Another bizarre moment has erupted inside the courtroom where Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are battling it out over a defamation lawsuit.
There have been plenty of strange moments to come out of witness testimony over the last few weeks, however this latest situation came from one of the people watching the trial.
Just as the court took a short break, a woman reportedly stood up and declared Johnny Depp was the father of her baby.
Law & Crime Network's Angenette Levy explained the situation, saying: "All of a sudden, this woman... she stands up at the back of the courtroom with her baby, and she says 'Johnny I love you, our souls are connected.'
"She held up the baby and said 'This baby is yours'. The deputy was like 'You're outta here'.
"It was pretty wild. It was a moment."
Depp reportedly waved in the direction of the woman as she was escorted out and had her visitor wristband snipped.
Levy ended up tracking down the woman and asked her why she made the baby daddy declaration.
The woman reportedly came up with the idea with her husband and the pair 'thought it was a joke, and thought it would be funny'.
Levy told the Law&Crime Network: "Just FYI everybody. Johnny Depp does not have a third baby out there that was at the courthouse today."
The reporter also questioned how much effort the anonymous woman went to in order to pull off that stunt.
People have been lining up for hours just so they can get a chance to witness the trial first hand.
Levy asked: "Was she waiting with the baby at 1AM to get into the courtroom? If so, that's a bigger issue."
Anyone who’s been following the case will know fans have been clamouring to get inside the highly publicised trial ever since it started on April 11.
According to The Washington Post, just 100 spectator wristbands are made available from 7.00am each morning, meaning the press have had to battle it out with the public.
The outlet reported that one journalist even offered $50 to someone for a wristband after arriving late.
Other reports have shown dedicated Depp fans going as far as to camp outside of the courthouse in order to secure a space in the queue before sunrise.
Elaborating further on why they’re going to such lengths to get a coveted wristband, one fan told People: "My friends think I'm insane for doing it but I think it's a historic trial and I think it's really interesting that it's taking place in Northern Virginia. Someone got here last night [at 9pm] to get the first spot."
Another admitted she’s spent around $30,000 on expenses in order to be present for the trial, stating: "I took my whole year's vacation so I could be here for Johnny. I'm the same age as Johnny. I'm single, so I do what I want to, basically."
