Who is Lauren Hunt Risinger?
Lauren Hunt Risinger is reportedly the name of the woman who claimed that the baby she was carrying belonged to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean' star. She reportedly hails from Gambrills, Maryland. According to the tweet, she stood up in the court right around when the morning break was announced and said, “I love you Johnny! Our souls are connected!”
All was fine as Depp reportedly turned around and waved at her until she shouted, “When are you going to admit the baby is yours?!” She was then removed from the courtroom. If the tweet by Asra is to be believed, Depp apparently left the spot in a hurry. The video shared by Asra also revealed how she also got into a fight with another woman outside court while describing what went down in the court. According to a video shared by the Twitter account of Law& Crime Network, Lauren Hunt Risinger was spotted outside the courtroom while speaking to what we believe was a journalist.

What’s happening in the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp case?
In the latest, it is reported that Amber Heard's legal team has dropped plans to call Johnny Depp back to the stand to testify again in the final week of the defamation trial between the former spouses. It was previously confirmed that the 58-year-old actor would be called back to the stand by the 36-year-old actress' legal team.
Now, a source close to Heard has revealed to People that her team no longer has plans to call Depp back to the stand. "Calling Depp back to the stand would be as relevant to us as a bicycle to a fish. Everything Depp has testified up to this point has been irrelevant to the heart of this case, and there's no reason to believe it would be any different now," said the source.
