Has Johnny Depp hooked up with his attorney? At least that's what an insider tells the American magazine 'US Weekly'. Johnny's new flame is said to be Joelle Rich. She stood in front of the actor two years in the trial against the newspaper 'The Sun' in England to the side.
During the defamation trial of his ex Amber Heard there had been completely different love speculations. The Pirates of the Caribbean star was rumored to be dating his attorney Camille Vasquez. A denial by the 38-year-old lawyer about the rumors of love was not long in coming.
Now the 59-year-old is said to have found love with Joelle Rich. The 37-year-old, who works for the well-known law firm Schillings in London, was part of the team of lawyers working on Depp's case against the British newspaper The Sun in 2018, which had described it as a 'woman beater'. From the professional encounters at that time, more seems to have developed between the two. According to insiders, the matter should be 'serious'. Rich is said to have been present in the Virginia courtroom at Depp's defamation trial to demonstrate her 'support' for Johnny.
“There was no professional obligation for her to be there. It was personal,' the source told US Weekly. In the early stages of their romance, the two met 'discreetly' at hotels, the insider continues. After all, Rich was still married when she met the Pirates of the Caribbean star. The lawyer is now divorced from her husband, with whom she has two children. (abl)
