JOHNNY DEPP HAS FOUND LOVE IN ONE OF HIS LAWYERS
Throughout the entire Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case, netizens wanted the former to date his lawyer Camille Vasquez. Soon after, rumours started floating that something has been brewing between the two. After Camille refuted the rumours in an interview, there has been a new update about Johnny. The Pirates of the Carribean actor seems to have found love in his former lawyer, Joelle Rich, who represented him in 2018 libel case involving international newspapers.
Joelle, who is still married and about to divorce her husband, is reportedly dating Johnny. US Weekly quoted a source saying, “It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.” The source further mentioned, “Their chemistry is off the charts.” Joelle was one of the lawyers to work on Johnny’s 2018 libel case but wasn’t a part of the actor’s defamation case with his ex-wife Amber Heard. She was apparently present in a Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for Johnny. The source further added, “There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal.” The two have reportedly had secret meetings in hotels during their early stages of romance.
