Johnny Depp is reportedly dating a lawyer who was part of his legal team fighting against Amber Heard.
As per reports, the actor is dating a lawyer named Joelle Rich who was representing him during the U.K. libel lawsuit against The Sun.
It is reported that Rich is married but separated from her husband. Her divorce might not be finalised yet.
She is also reportedly a mother of two. Sources told US Weekly that the Pirates of the Caribbean and the attorney are ‘pretty serious’ in their relationship.
It is reported that while Rich wasn’t a part of the legal team in the US, she was present in the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for the actor during his case against Amber Heard. “There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal,” the source claimed.
Meanwhile, earlier this summer, speculations went wild suggesting that Depp could be dating Vasquez.
However, the attorney shot the rumours down with a strong statement. Calling the speculations ‘sexist’, she told People magazine, “It’s also an unethical charge being made. 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.”
While Depp had won the defamation case, he had lost the trial in the UK.
Depp sued the executive editor and publisher of The Sun in 2018 after they published an article accusing him of assaulting Amber Heard. They also called him a “wife-beater”.
