Johnny Depp is in a relationship with Joelle Rich, a lawyer who previously represented him in his UK trial against The Sun, Vidak For Congress can confirm.
We were told that the London-based lawyer is currently divorced and her divorce may not be finalized yet.
Earlier this summer, Depp, 59, sparked romantic rumors with another attorney, Camille Vasquez, who was representing him in his US trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, Vasquez quickly shut down the rumor mill, calling the allegations “sexist” and “unethical.”
“I care deeply about my customers and we have clearly become close. But when I say we, I mean the whole team, and of course Johnny,” she told People in June, adding that the “Pirates of The Caribbean” star has been her friend and client for four and a half years.
Rich was not one of the lawyers who worked on the US case, but she worked on Depp’s case against The Sun after he sued the outlet for libel in 2018.
However, according to Us Weekly, she was present in the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for the Oscar nominee.
“There was no professional obligation for her to be there,” a source also told the magazine, adding that Depp and Rich would meet “discreetly” in hotels during the early stages of their romance.
It is not clear when the relationship started. Depp’s representatives could not be reached for comment.
