In another bizarre turn, a woman appeared at Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard on Monday, May 23 claiming her baby belongs to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
According to Daily Mail, the unidentified woman’s outburst came during a break after Judge Penney Azcarate left the courtroom.
‘Johnny, I love you! Our souls are connected,’ the woman exclaimed as she stood up with the baby.
Depp turned to her, smiled and waved – as he often has during strange moments of the trial, which enters its seventh week on Tuesday.
The woman then held up the baby and claimed Depp was the father as a police officer approached her.
The officer escorted the woman from the courtroom, clipping off her wristband that allowed her access to the trial.
The outburst caused a bit of commotion in the courtroom that had to be calmed down.
The woman later claimed that she was doing it as a joke, but was escorted out of the trial and not allowed to return
Depp is suing Heard, claiming three counts of defamation and $50million in restitution.
Heard who was married to the actor from 2015 to 2017 – is counter-claiming for $100million.
