Who is Joelle Rich? How did she meet Johnny Depp?
It is reported that the attorney is based out of London and is married, but she is separated from her husband. The duo met during the trial in the U.K., which was first filed in the year 2018, but due to the pandemic, it was delayed, and the trial finally began in 2020. Then in 2021, his lawyers appealed to the court, which was denied.
Johnny and the rumors about him dating Camille Vasquez:
During the amber heard trial, which happened in the U.S. There were rumors that the actor was getting close to Camille Vasquez, the lawyer who was part of the team that represented Johnny in the case in which he sued his ex-wife actress Amber Heard in a defamation case.
Camille later clarified all the rumors of her dating the famous actor and said that all these allegations were not ethical nor sexist. She said that she was close to the actor as a friend because she deeply cares about his clients and that Johnny has been a client for more than four years.
