Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial has captured the attention of the whole world and it is not hard to see why. Tons of allegations regarding abuse, assault and other things were hurled at each other in very public fashion. In fact, many people are desperate to just spectate the trial itself.
Johnny Depp denied being abusive to Amber and filed a defamation case against her. She has filed a $100 million countersuit and now all of that is playing out in Court, as the world watches. To add to that, Americans are more interested in Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard than Roe vs Wade, which certainly says a lot about how significant the trial has become now.
According to TMZ, when the trial started, fans lined up around 5 AM outside the building in Fairfax County, Virginia. People started gathering up at 10 PM Sunday for Monday’s 9 AM start, just so they could see Amber Heard.
This led to the Sheriff posting a sign the following day that read, “Effective Immediately the Line for the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Case Spectators are Not Permitted to Loiter or Camp Out on The Judicial Complex Before 1 AM.
When it comes to getting a seat, it was said that court officials have about 100 wristbands to hand out on a first come first serve basis for the main courtroom. For the overflow room, there are 100-150 more tickets. There have been screaming matches when people cut the line as well.
In fact, there is also a black market where people pay money to get their hands on those wristbands. Heard was also absolutely grilled by Depp’s lawyer during the cross-examination. So, let’s hope seeing this show first-hand is worth the trouble.
We’ll have to see who wins the trial as the momentum is clearly behind Johnny Depp right now. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more!
