From Depp’s lawyer and rumored love interest, Vasquez, to his longtime friend who broke down in tears over the accusations, here’s all the people who earned online stardom after participating in the trial.

'The best comeback of the trial': Ex-TMZ reporter Morgan Tremaine: Ex TMZ reporter Morgan Tremaine was branded a 'king' and 'the MVP' when he clapped back at Heard's lawyer after she accused him of only taking the stand to seek '15 minutes of fame.' Tremaine, who worked as TMZ's former field assignment manager, was called by Depp's team to testify in court last week, in which he discussed a series of photos taken by the gossip site of Heard in 2016. The pictures in question showed the actress leaving court after filing for a restraining order against Depp, with what appeared to be a bruise on her cheek. But according to Tremaine, they were tipped off about the photo op - although he didn't specify who gave them the tip.

But according to Tremaine, they were tipped off about the photo op – although he didn’t specify who gave them the tip.

During her cross examination, Heard's attorney Elaine Bredehoft accused Tremaine of speaking out about the matter in an attempt to get attention, but he quickly shut those rumors down, explaining that he was actually making himself a 'target' by taking the stand and stating, 'I gain nothing from this.'

He then fired back at the lawyer and told her that he could 'say the same thing' about her taking Heard as a client - and his sassy clapback soon took the internet by storm. 'You know this case is being televised, right?' Bredehoft asked Tremaine during her cross examination. 'I am aware that there are cameras,' he responded. 'So this gets you your 15 minutes of fame, doesn't it?' she then suggested.

Although Depp’s lawyer objected to her question, the judge overruled the objection – prompting Tremaine to turn Bredehoft’s question back on her. ‘I stand to gain nothing from this. I’m actually putting myself in the target of TMZ, a very litigious organization and I’m not seeking any 15 minutes here. But you’re welcome to speculate. I can say the same thing – by taking Amber Heard as a client – for you,’ he fired back. 

'A little argumentative, don't you think?' Bredehoft then asked him, taken aback. Tremaine said, 'Oh hardly, I find that to be purely logical.' Depp's lawyers appeared to be entertained by his response, and they erupted into laughter. Depp let out a small smile as his legal team giggled at the back and forth. The journalist's 'savage burn' quickly went viral, and many social media users started vehemently supporting the former TMZ staffer.

During his testimony, Tremaine told the jury that the outlet was tipped off when they photographed Heard going to court in Los Angeles, California, in May 2016 - and that it was assumed she was going to 'display the bruise' (pictured) that was allegedly caused by her ex. He said: 'The objective was to capture her leaving the courthouse and she was going to stop and turn to the camera and display the bruise.' While Tremaine did not reveal the source of the tip, he said that it came from a news producer, meaning that it would have been verified.

Heard has testified that she was shocked to see photographers outside the court after a judge awarded her a restraining order against Depp. The court previously heard claims that Heard's team leaked the video of Depp smashing up his kitchen to TMZ. While Tremaine (pictured) did not confirm this, he said that the video sent to TMZ was shorter than the one shown to the jury, meaning it had been edited. In the version TMZ received from its anonymous tip line, the part where Heard was 'sniggering at the camera,' was cut out, Tremaine said.

'The real hero in this trial': Clinical psychologist Shannon Curry: Clinical psychologist Shannon Curry also became an internet sensation after she testified during the trial. Back in April, the doctor, who was hired to review Heard and Depp's relationship, claimed that the Aquaman star suffers from two personality disorders. The clinical and forensic psychologist told the court that she concluded Heard had traits consistent with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), as well as Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD) - two conditions found in people with patterns of emotional instability and attention-seeking behavior. While conducting her evaluation, Curry explained she reviewed various case materials including Heard's medical records, mental health treatment records, court exhibits, witness statements, and audio and video recordings.

She also met with Heard for several hours over the course of two separate dates in December 2021, before finally coming to a diagnosis. In addition, she returned to the stand on May 25 to rebut testimony made by clinical psychologist Dawn Hughes, who was called by Heard's team as a defense witness.

Hughes claimed she diagnosed Heard with PTSD as a result of what she described as intimate partner violence experienced during her relationship with Depp. However, Curry said she concluded that Heard ‘grossly exaggerated’ her post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after her relationship with Depp ended. Many people took to social media to gush over the psychologist after her testimony, with one calling her the ‘real hero’ of the trial. 

During her testimony, Dr. Curry noted that Heard's BPD was marked by an 'underlying terror of abandonment,' and added that somebody with the condition often tends to make 'desperate attempts' to stop it from happening. These could be 'very extreme behaviors,' she added. Curry also said that as a result of these disorders, somebody like Heard could appear charming at the start of a friendship or relationship, but that they could then turn dark easily.

'You'll see relationships start very intensely, extremely close,' she said. 'This might be their perfect soulmate and initially everything seems great but reality sets in, people are not perfect. 'Most of us accept people as a whole, [but] with a person with BPD, things are in these extremes - that person goes from being idealized to dumpster, they are totally devalued, they're the worst. Then there will be a repair because the person with this disorder does feel remorse.' Curry stated that somebody with BPD is usually 'very, very interested in looks and utilizes their looks to get the respect they're looking for.' Curry called Heard a 'sophisticated' and 'calculated' case of BPD - adding that from her analysis, Heard seemed like somebody who would 'hit you where it hurts' and that she could be 'very, very destructive.'

'Queen behavior': Supermodel Kate Moss wows the internet with her three-minute testimony: Many people on the internet were cheering when Kate Moss gave testimony defending Depp in his trial against Heard. The notoriously-private supermodel put aside her infamous hatred of interviews and the media in order to rush to Depp's aid in court last week, taking to the stand on his behalf and delivering a sensational blow to Heard's case by squashing the actress' claim that Depp once pushed his supermodel ex down a flight of stairs.

Afterwards, many people took to Twitter to share their thoughts. 'Kate Moss came, spat facts, called Amber Heard a liar in front of thousands of people and left. Queen behavior if you ask me,' wrote one person. 'I've never had an opinion on Kate Moss, but the amount of respect and admiration I have for that woman now is off the charts,' said someone else.

During Heard's testimony earlier this month, the actress alleged that Depp once shoved Moss down a flight of stairs - but according to Moss, who dated Depp from 1994 to 1998, the Hollywood heartthrob actually helped her after she accidentally slipped. Heard made the claim while discussing an argument that she allegedly had with Depp at the top of a staircase, when she said her sister, Whitney Heard, stepped in between them.

Moss said during her testimony that Depp never 'pushed her or threw her down any stairs,' in fact, she said that he tended to her after she tripped during a trip they took to Jamaica together. 'We were leaving the room and Johnny left the room before I did. There had been a rainstorm and as I left the room I slid down the stairs,' she recalled, while testifying via video link. 'I hurt my back, and I screamed because I didn't know what had happened.' She said Depp came running back to help her, adding that he 'carried her to her room and got her medical attention.' When asked directly by Depp's team if the Pirates of the Caribbean star ever pushed her down the stairs, Moss replied, 'No.' 'No, he never pushed me, kicked me or threw me down any stairs,' she told the court.

The actor and the British entrepreneur were together for just over three years in the '90s, and when Depp dumped Moss so he could focus his full attention on his career, she admitted she was devastated for 'years' over the breakup.

Vasquez said to Heard during the cross examination: ‘Your lies have been exposed to the world multiple times?’ to which Heard responded, ‘I haven’t lied about anything.’ She then asked her, ‘When you told this jury you punched Mr. Depp because you thought of Mr. Depp pushing Kate Moss down the stairs, you didn’t expect Miss Moss to testify that never happened?’ Heard answered, ‘Incorrect, I knew how many people will come out of the woodwork to support Johnny.’ 

Vasquez also pressed Heard about many other inconsistencies and accusations, and she even became short with Heard when she started to talk to the jury at one point. 'There is no question pending so I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't make an argument to the jury. It's inappropriate,' Vasquez snapped at Heard. 'Camille Vasquez is definitely one of the best lawyers I’ve ever seen. She’s absolutely annihilating Amber heard. OMG!' wrote one person afterwards. 'That was an obliteration,' agreed someone else. 'Camille Vasquez you queen.' Another added, 'This is what a real strong independent woman looks like. Camille’s intelligence and talent is so inspiring for women everywhere. She is a true example of strength facing evil.'

However, body language expert Judi James explained exclusively to DailyMail.com that the amorous moments between them are most likely not due to a secret affair, but instead, are all part of a plan to make Depp seem like a 'romantic hero.'

Some people on social media have also pointed out that Vasquez appears to be wearing an engagement or wedding ring during her court appearances, but since she keeps her personal life so private, it's unclear whether or not she's in a relationship.

The artist was propelled into internet stardom after his testimony and gained thousand of followers on Instagram

Baruch testified that Depp loved his artwork so much that he let him live rent free in a penthouse apartment he owned in the Eastern Columbia Building and paid him around $100,000 during the three years he lived there so he could work on his art. He testified that he never saw Depp or Heard being violent to each other and that he only saw them argue twice. 

He rose from just 200 to 18,000 followers in a matter of weeks

The animal is symbolic in the case since it was used in a quote from Depp about his relationship with Disney after Heard released her op-ed about him in 2018. Days after the article came out, he was dropped by the company, and his lawyers have argued that the essay was to blame.

Depp reportedly claimed at the time that he would not return for another Pirates movie even if Disney offered him $300 million and a million alpacas. And now, fans are bringing the animal to court in an attempt to show their support. 'The real stars of this trial... the ALPACAS,' joked one Twitter user.

Depp's lawyer Chew was even spotted bringing a stuffed alpaca with him into the courtroom earlier this month. 'I’ll sure miss the alpacas,' read one tweet, while discussing the trial coming to an end. '[The alpacas were] the best moment of the entire thing,' agreed another. Another said, 'I hope that we can learn at least one thing from this trial: Don't underestimate the power of one man and a few alpacas.'

A woman with short brown hair - similar to Bredehoft's - could be seen eagerly waiting behind a barricade with a camera in hand as Depp made his way to the red carpet in a YouTube video that was filmed at the Lone Ranger premiere in London, England, on July 20, 2013. Due to their similar features, many people on the internet were convinced that the doting supporter was actually Bredehoft.

A woman with short brown hair – similar to Bredehoft’s – could be seen eagerly waiting behind a barricade with a camera in hand as Depp made his way to the red carpet in a YouTube video that was filmed at the Lone Ranger premiere in London, England, on July 20, 2013. Due to their similar features, many people on the internet were convinced that the doting supporter was actually Bredehoft. 

Bredehoft is part of Heard's legal team amid her and Depp's $100 million defamation trial. She is pictured during opening statements of the trial on April 12

The video quickly took the internet by storm, gaining more than 11 million views in a matter of days, and it left many people on the internet stunned over the woman’s resemblance to Bredehoft. It’s unclear if the woman in question is actually Heard’s lawyer, but numerous social media users are now convinced that it’s her. ‘She probably took the job just to see him all day long,’ joked one viewer in the comment section of the viral video. ‘What if she is purposely doing bad, so that Johnny can win and she actually likes him?’ theorized another. Someone else commented, ‘I’m convinced she became her lawyer to see him.’ ‘Even Amber’s team are on Johnny’s side,’ added a different user. 

Throughout the course of the trial, Bredehoft, along with Heard's other attorney Ben Rottenborn, have received a lot of negative comments online for representing Heard in court. 'Law schools will now use Elaine and Rottenborn as an example of how to not act in court!' wrote one person. Another said, 'Rottenborn and Bredehoft have absolutely zero dignity or integrity.' Others accused Bredehoft of 'lying' during her closing statement and 'misrepresenting witnesses and evidence.' However, some have defended the lawyer. 'Can we all agree that Amber's lawyers, at least Elaine Bredehoft, don’t deserve the horrible online hate that should only be directed at Amber? They just got hired for a job. It’s not personal,' read one tweet.
