A new viral clip from the former flames' trial, which is being streamed, has left online users in a fit of laughter after Depp's witness from TMZ threw shade at Heard's attorney while he was on the stand.
Morgan Tremaine, who was employed by the famed celebrity gossip outlet from 2015 until August 2017, took the stand during the sixth and final week of the trial to testify about several mysterious tips regarding where the actress would be back in 2016, in addition to a shocking video the outlet received showing Depp shouting at Heard after catching her recording him storming around their home.
As seen in his now viral cross-examination, Heard's lawyer Elaine Bredehoft asked the former TMZ employee: "You know this case is being televised, right?" to which Tremaine replied: "I am aware there are cameras."
"This gets you your fifteen minutes of fame, doesn't it," the legal mind pressed, as one of Depp's attorneys objected Bredehoft's statement claiming it was argumentative. "I can ask that question," Bredehoft declared, with the judge overruling the plaintiff's team member's motion.
"So, I stand to gain nothing from this," Tremaine responded, noting: "I'm actually putting myself kind of in the target of 'TMZ,' a very litigious organization, and I'm not seeking any fifteen minutes of fame here, though you may welcome to speculate."
Clapping back at Bredehoft's claim of him seeking time in the spotlight, Tremaine added: "I could say the same thing by taking Amber Heard as a client for you," as the courtroom erupted in laughter, with Depp's team also smirking at one another.
TikTok user @devotedly.yours captioned the clip of Tremaine savagely responding to Bredehoft: "Morgan Tremaine deserves more than 15 min of fame after this!!!!" Before sharing the video, the social media user comically said: "I love [Morgan]. I don't know him."
TMZ initially filed a court order to keep Tremaine from testifying after news broke that Depp's team would call on their ex-employee as a witness. Judge Penney Azcarate refused the outlet's motion ruling he would be allowed to voluntarily testify.
Online users flooded the comment section of the TikTok with praises for Tremaine, with one writing: "We must protect him at all costs!" as another added, "Elaine needs to sit back down after that."
"Spicy Draco," another user humorously commented, likening the good-looking witness to Draco from the Harry Potter franchise.
"The way camille and ben smirk at each other lol," added another of Depp's beloved lawyers Ben Chew and Camille Vasquez.
Depp is suing his ex-wife for $50 million for defamation claiming her 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post in which she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse ruined his reputation and Hollywood career. Heard countersued for $100 million.
Closing arguments are expected to take place Friday, May 27.
