Johnny Depp in a new relationship: Who is his girlfriend, Joelle Rich?
After winning the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp is now moving on and has started a new relationship with lawyer Joelle Rich.
Actor Johnny Depp is in a new relationship.
After the trial for defamation against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, the 59-year-old actor has moved on to a new relationship; this time, with his ex-lawyer, Joelle Rich.
The information was confirmed by a source close to the new couple to E! News. Who is the woman who has stolen the heart of the actor? Here are the details.
Who is Joelle Rich, the new girlfriend of Johnny Depp?
Joelle Rich is a lawyer based in London, England. She was part of Depp’s legal team in 2018, when she defended him in the defamation lawsuit against the newspaper The Sun in the United Kingdom.
Back then, the British tabloid labeled Depp a “wife beater” due to the accusations made by Heard, a claim Depp denied. However, after two years of trial, Johnny lost the defamation case against the newspaper.
For the trial in the United States against his ex-wife, Johnny changed his legal team, which meant that Rich was no longer part of the defense in the case that took place earlier this year, which the actor eventually won.
Despite not being part of the legal process, Rich showed her support for Depp by making several court appearances in Fairfax, Virginia, during his trial.
What happened between Camille Vasquez and Johnny Depp?
During Heard’s libel trial, various images surfaced where he was seen in the company of Camille Vasquez who represented Johnny in the case, leading to speculations that they were romantically involved. However, the successful litigation lawyer flatly denied the rumors and pointed out that media and the Internet had created a “disappointing” and “sexist” narrative.
“I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job,” said Vasquez.
“It’s disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny- who is a friend I’ve known and represented for four-and-a-half years now- that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional. That’s disappointing to hear,” the lawyer told People magazine.
