Johnny Depp is dating one of his lawyers anyway, just not Camille Vasquez. Yahoo Entertainment can confirm that pirates of the caribbean star sees Joelle Rich, a lawyer who represented Depp in his British defamation lawsuit.
TMZ reports that Rich is married, but is divorcing. She and her estranged husband have two children. Depp shares daughter Lily-Rose, 23, and son Jack, 20, with ex-partner Vanessa Paradis.
Us Weekly, who was the first to break news of Depp’s relationship, quotes a source as saying “their chemistry is off the charts.” The insider claimed the romance is “serious.” However, an insider objected: People: “They’re dating, but it’s not serious.”
Rich was a member of Depp’s legal team in London when he filed a lawsuit The sun about an article that referred to him as a “wife beater.” The actor lost the case with a judge who ruled it “substantially true” that he abused Amber Heard multiple times. It was a different outcome when Depp took Heard to court earlier this year.
Depp sued Heard for $50 million over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post. The Aquarius star claimed she suffered physical and sexual assault, but did not name Depp. A jury agreed that it was suggested she was talking about the actor and he was awarded more than $10 million.
Vasquez was loved by Depp fans during the sensational trial, but there was no romantic bond between the two. Although Rich did not work on the case in the US, she attended parts of the trial.
It’s hard to believe that the world knows way too much about Depp and Heard’s relationship right now, but the actor tends to be very reserved about his private life. Before Heard, he was with Paradis for over a decade. He had high profile relationships with Winona Ryder and Kate Moss, who both supported him in his fight against Heard.
