During the six-week-long trial, rumors began to swirl about Johnny Depp and one of his lawyers. And now those rumors are true, it’s just not with the lawyer you’re likely picturing.
New Reports Suggest Johnny Depp Is Allegedly Dating One of His Married Lawyers
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, People is reporting that Depp is allegedly dating one of his attorneys for his U.K. libel case, Joelle Rich.
While it’s also reported that Rich is allegedly still married, the source claims it’s not that big of a deal, yet. “They are dating but it’s not serious.”
People reports that while Rich represented Johnny Depp during his libel case across the pond, she was not a part of his legal team during his American trial. However, photos allegedly placed Rich at the Virginia courthouse several times throughout the trial.
There was even a picture of Rich and Depp’s fellow lawyer Camille Vasquez hugging. The romantic rumors that surrounded Depp and one of his lawyers focused on Vasquez.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Vasquez became a social media sensation overnight, as Depp supporters praised her during her cross-examination of Heard.
Unfortunately, some of those who watched the trial closely began to wonder aloud, if maybe Depp and Vasquez’s relationship was more than just professional. Vasquez was quick to speak out against those rumors.
In an interview with People, Vasquez revealed she is a taken woman who is “very happy” in her relationship, and called the rumors about her and Johnny Depp “sexist,” adding that she resents even the idea that she would date one of her clients.
“I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job,” Vasquez told People after a source called the romance rumors “entirely, 100 percent, unequivocally untrue.”
“It’s disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny — who is a friend and I’ve known and represented for four-and-a-half years now — that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional,” Vasquez continued. “That’s disappointing to hear.”
While it’s not exactly sure why these rumors started, Vasquez wonders if it is simply because she offered Depp a congratulatory hug after a successful cross-examination. “I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. But when I say we, I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny,” Vasquez explained.
“And, I’m Cuban and Colombian. I’m tactile. What do you want me to say? I hug everyone. And I’m not ashamed about that,” the attorney continued before saying her “work is my love, and when I love, I love really deeply.”
“It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist. It’s unfortunate and it’s disappointing, but at the same time, it kind of comes with the territory. I can’t say I was all that surprised,” she concluded.
