Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s doorman drive and vapes in video testimony

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are both celebrities, but their former doorman turned out to be the star on Wednesday at the defamation case taking place in Fairfax, Virginia.

The court heard from Alejandro Romero, who was the doorman of the Los Angeles apartment building where Johnny Depp and Amber Heard once lived.

Romero’s testimony came during the presentation of a videotaped deposit that was filmed as he drove and steamed, according to Page Six.

The whole exchange was so bizarre that Judge Penney Azcarate had to admit, “I’ve seen a lot of things, but I’ve never seen them.”

Romero’s clarification related to an incident in the home that involved the couple on May 21, 2016, but he told the lawyers who questioned him that he was “so stressed” and did not want to “deal with this anymore.”

“I’m tired … I do not want to deal with this lawsuit … everyone has problems and I do not want to deal with this anymore,” he said at one point according to People.com.

Romero told lawyers he could not remember having “see any marks or bruises” on Heard’s face in the days following the incident, but added, “I would have seen it and I would remember it because it’s something you would see.”

Romero, who steamed throughout the deposition, admitted he could not remember if he saw Heard on a particular date, and laughed when he explained, “I can not remember. I can not even remember what I got to breakfast.”

Although Romero admitted he did not have many meetings with Depp, he said the actor was not abusive or violent on those occasions.

Another time, he said, he remembered Heard asking him to inquire if there was an uninvited guest after a dog itching at their front door.

“What? Four inches from the ground? The dog was scratching,” he said. “In my head, do you think someone is trying to get into your unit with scratches four inches above the floor?”

“They were scared.… They asked me to go into the unit and inspect each room individually. It’s part of my job, so I did it,” Romero said, while many in the courtroom laughed.

Depp accuses Heard of defamation over a Washington Post post from 2018 entitled “I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. That needs to change.”

The actress said the article indirectly slandered him by referring to accusations she made against him in the midst of their divorce and that he was a victim of spousal abuse.

The trial, which just ended its 11th day, is likely to take weeks to complete.
