Los Angeles, Sep 23: Johnny Depp is dating Joelle Rich, an attorney who represented him in his UK libel trial against the Sun.
The London-based lawyer is married but separated, and her divorce may not have been finalized yet.
Earlier this summer, Depp, 59, sparked romance rumors with another attorney, Camille Vasquez, who represented him in his victorious US defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, Vasquez quickly quieted the rumor mill, calling the allegations “sexist” and “unethical.”
“I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close,” she told People in June. “But when I say ‘we,’ I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny.”
Vasquez noted that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star had been her friend and client for four and a half years.
“It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist,” she added. “It’s unfortunate, and it’s disappointing, but at the same time, it kind of comes with the territory. I can’t say I was all that surprised.”
Rich was not one of the lawyers who worked on the US case, but she was reportedly present in the courtroom.
