Johnny Depp is dating his UK lawyer Joelle Rich
Johnny Depp has moved on from his tumultuous history with Amber Heard. A new romance sprung, and he is now dating one of his lawyers in his defamation case. But it’s certainly not Camille Vasquez.
Depp, 59, was linked before to Camille Vasquez. She was the lawyer who represented him in his defamation case. These rumors circulated when the trial was ongoing. Vasquez was quick to slam the speculations labeling them as “sexist.”
Those rumors were undoubtedly far from the truth. The Pirates of The Caribbean actor was dating his lawyer Joelle Rich. She represented Depp in the UK trial, where he lost. But Depp didn’t hold it against her as there are confirmations that the two are indeed going out.

An insider confirmed this news to US Weekly. The source said, “Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.”
Depp and Rich met in 2018 when she worked on his case against a UK newspaper. Depp sued the outlet over libel. However, Rich wasn’t part of the legal team that worked on his defamation trial against his former wife, Amber Heard.
Even if Rich wasn’t working on Depp’s defamation case, she was present in the Virginia courtroom during his trial. Rich is there to “support” the actor. The insider said, “There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal.”

The insider also shared to US Weekly that the two were already “discreetly” meeting in hotels during their early stages of dating. According to the source, Rich was still married when the duo started dating. But she is now divorcing her husband, with whom she shared two children.
Moreover, the London-based lawyer has already made a name for herself in the world of law. Rich was very successful in her career as a partner in a London law firm. Rich also works on high-profile cases. In addition, she also attended secondary school at a reputable school, the North London Collegiate School.
On top of being professionally successful, Joelle Rich is a very private person. Her Instagram account is private, and she only has 200 followers. But she has more than 1000 posts. Furthermore, Rich and Johnny Depp’s representatives haven’t commented on their current relationship status.
