Elaine: You're here for your 15 minutes of fame
Treamine: I stand to gain nothing, I put myself in the crosshairs of TMZ, a very litigious company, but the same could be said of you taking Amber Heard as a client.#AmberHeard #JohnnyDeppVsAmberHeard #JohnnyDeppAmberHeardTrial pic.twitter.com/pyr0PGDuGp

Today, Tremaine testifies he later dispatched more paparazzi to the law office where Heard was to make a video deposition. He also testifies the video of Depp in the kitchen was later posted to the TMZ website.
Tremaine confirmed that TMZ has the rights and copyrights to the video in question. Tremaine said that no other media outlets posted the video because TMZ obtained the copyright. He says the video was not edited when he received it.
