A new report confirms that actor Johnny Depp is currently dating Joelle Rich, one of his attorneys from the UK libel case, months after rumours of dating his lawyer Camille Vasquez surfaced. Previously, rumours circulated that Johnny and Camille were dating after she represented him in a defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. On the other hand, Camille denied the rumours, stating that she was in a relationship with someone else.
According to a source, “their chemistry is off the charts.” They have a serious relationship. They are the genuine article.” According to the report, the couple “discreetly” met in hotels during the early stages of their romance.
Joelle was not a member of his legal team in the Amber Heard case, but she was present in the Virginia courtroom earlier this year. “She had no professional obligation to be there.” “It was very personal,” a source told Us. According to the report, Joelle was married when she met Johnny. She is separating from her husband, with whom she has two children.
Joelle was one of the lawyers on Johnny’s team who represented him in his libel case in the United Kingdom in 2020. Johnny had sued The Sun newspaper in 2018 over a story that called him a “wife-beater” during his marriage to Amber. He did, however, lose the case.
Johnny won a defamation case against Amber earlier this year. The jury determined that she defamed him in her 2018 Washington Post opinion piece, in which she alluded to being a victim of domestic violence. However, the jury determined that Johnny defamed Amber through his attorney while fighting her charges. Camille was one of the lawyers involved in the case.
Camille responded to the dating rumours by revealing that she is dating Edward Owen, a WeWork executive based in England. “I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job,” she told People magazine. It’s disappointing that certain outlets ran with it or claimed that my interactions with Johnny, whom I’ve known and represented for four and a half years, were inappropriate or unprofessional. That is disheartening to hear.”
