In recent months Johnny Depp has been in the news for the lawsuit against Amber Heard. But this Thursday, his name was again in the media because it was revealed that Depp started a relationship with one of his lawyers.
Although it was initially speculated that it could be Camille Vasquez, the entertainment magazine Us Weekly confirmed that the actor has a romantic relationship with Joelle Rich. She represented him in the trial in the UK.
It was also learned that Joelle Rich did not belong to the legal team that defended Depp in his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year. She was, however, in court supporting the actor.
“There was no professional obligation for her to be there. It was personal,” explained a source who spoke to the media outlet.
Who is Joelle Rich, Johnny Depp’s lawyer?
Joelle Rich is a lawyer from the UK who, according to various media outlets, is engaged in defending people against false and defamatory accusations in print, online, and social media.
As confirmed by Us Weekly, Rich is in divorce proceedings and has two children. “The insider notes that Rich was married when she met Depp but is now divorcing her husband. She and her estranged spouse share two children.”
Months ago, Johnny Depp won a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, clearing his name of false domestic violence allegations. After a lengthy trial, Heard was unanimously found guilty of defaming the actor in her allegations and ordered to pay $15,000,000 in damages.
