Johnny Depp, a happily divorced actor, is dating his lawyer Joelle Rich following his trial with ex-wife Amber Heard.
Depp is Dating His Lawyer
It came out this week that Johnny Depp, born June 9, 1963, is currently in a romantic relationship with his former attorney Joelle Rich.
The couple, who are 22 years apart, was reportedly ‘friendly’ during the trial with Amber Heard, where Rich frequently visited and showed her support, and was still married to her husband at the time.
An insider told Us Weekly, “Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.
Depp’s girlfriend did not represent him in the Amber Heard case.
Rich, 37, a London-based married mother of two, represented the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie star in his U.K. libel case and lost the 2020 defamation lawsuit against the British tabloid The Sun. The Sun called Johnny Depp a “wife beater,” with which Depp disagreed and sued the online publication.
Rich did not represent him against actress and ex-wife Amber Heard but did attend several proceedings to show support for Depp inside the courtroom. It is rumored that around this time, she left her husband and children behind to be there for actor Johnn Depp.
Depp’s ladyfriend told The Law Society Gazette last year that the case in 2020 where she was “working simultaneously” on Meghan Markle’s lawsuit against the publishers of the Mail on Sunday, was “hailed as the biggest privacy case in decades.”
The couple has been spotted smiling, walking together, and reportedly having a fabulous time together.
Joelle Rich is a mother of two and is currently getting a divorce, and Depp wants to take things slow.
What’s Next for Johnny?
Aside from his new romance, Depp has also been facing a new reality of sorts since the verdict was delivered in the Heard legal case.
According to reports, Depp has landed several gigs, film projects, and music engagements.
Among his busy life, he’s been keeping an eye on his former wife’s legal moves. Depp’s team responded to the appeal, confident that the verdict would stand.
Earlier this year, Johnny Depp was said to be dating his lawyer from the Amber Heard case, Camille Vasquez.
