As of Thursday, the jury members in Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard have concluded hearing evidence after a six-week trial. However, the witness, Morgan Tremaine, a former TMZ employee, cast a negative light on Amber Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, while interrogating him on the stand.
He was invited to reveal his experiences with the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp romance in 2016, according to reports. Elaine Bredehoft claimed he was trying to obtain his “15 minutes of fame” while testifying.
