Johnny Depp is dating the attorney that represented him in the UK for his libel lawsuit in 2020, reportedly — it’s NOT Camille
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is seeing Joelle Rich, a lawyer who represented Depp in his U.K. libel trial.
Us Weekly, which was the first to break this story about Depp dating his attorney, a source claims “Their chemistry is off the charts.” The insider alleged the romance is “serious.” However, an insider countered that to People: “They are dating but it’s not serious.”
Johnny Depp the story just keeps giving. We can’t get enough of it. This is just good.
Rich was one of the lawyers who worked on Depp’s case against the U.K. newspaper after he sued the outlet for libel in 2018, but she was not part of the legal team who represented him in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year. She was, however, present in the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for the Oscar nominee.
The world watched as Depp was awarded more than $10 million in damages, and Heard, meanwhile, won one of the three countersuit claims and was awarded $2 million. Both stars are appealing the verdicts.
TMZ reports Rich is married but is in the process of getting divorced.
