The Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial has seen many fans rooting for Depp outside the courthouse and bringing their alpacas along for the ride. Now, reportedly, a fan had to be removed from the court after yelling that Depp was the father of her child. As per Law & Crime Network, the court was taking its morning break when the woman yelled from the gallery, “Johnny I love you! Our souls are connected!” Depp reportedly turned and waved to her as he usually does to fans, before the woman proceeded to hold up the baby and yell, “This baby is yours!” The woman was escorted from the courtroom and even though the judge was not on the bench at the time, such behaviour is not tolerated in court.
