Well, the rumors are true after all. Johnny Depp is dating his lawyer, and apparently, things are very, very serious. But it’s not the lawyer that you’re thinking of. It’s actually another lawyer who has worked on the Depp/Heard trial, only this one took place over in the UK. According to reports, Johnny and this woman are hot and heavy and he’s very happy. It’s nice to see him with someone outside of the creepy “Hollywood” zone. Daily Wire reported that in a plot twist straight from Hollywood — actor Johnny Depp is reportedly dating one of the attorneys who represented him in a recent matter in the United Kingdom.
Joelle Rich, who was part of Depp’s legal team in his U.K. libel trial against The Sun, is reportedly still married but separated — and according to Page Six, her divorce may not yet be final.
Entertainment magazine Us Weekly reported that Rich, who did not assist in Depp’s more recent trial in the United States — against actress and ex-wife Amber Heard — was present in the Virginia courtroom despite having no professional reason to be there.
“Their chemistry is off the charts,” an insider reportedly told Us Weekly. “It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.”
Rumors also swirled around Depp and his U.S. trial attorney Camille Vasquez — rumors that Vasquez was quick to shoot down when confronted on the issue by CBS anchor Gayle King.
Ironically, Depp lost that case in the UK to Amber Heard. But he more than made up for it when he beat her back home in the US.
Plus, he got the girl!
