Another bizarre moment. Johnny Depp‘s defamation trial against Amber Heard took an unexpected turn when a woman claimed the actor fathered her child.As the court’s morning break started on Monday, May 23, the woman began her outburst as the Oscar nominee, 58, and his legal team prepared to leave the room. “All of a sudden, this woman … stands up in the back of the courtroom with her baby, and she says, ‘Johnny I love you, our souls are connected,’” Law & Crime‘s Angenette Levy recalled in a segment for the news outlet.When the Pirates of the Caribbean star turned to wave to the fan, the woman reportedly told the actor that he fathered her child. “She held up the baby and she said, ‘This baby is yours,’” Levy said, adding that the deputy then escorted the woman out of the courtroom.The incident wasn’t captured on the live feed from inside the trial because cameras had already been switched off for the break, but Levy tweeted that the woman later told a Law & Crime assistant that she was “joking.”The trial between Depp and Heard, 36, has been full of shocking moments since it began earlier this year.
