This is news that is likely to cause a lot of ink to flow! According to the DailyMailJohnny Depp would be in a relationship with Joelle Rich, a 37-year-old London-based lawyer who represented the actor in a 2020 defamation lawsuit against the newspaper The Sun. A legal battle he ultimately lost, with the verdict being described as « disconcertingby those around him.
A source told the magazine US Weekly that « alchemy« between Lily-Rose’s father and the lawyer was »extraordinary« and that was »serious with each other« . The young woman would therefore have a romantic relationship with the actor, she who is « partner at major international law firm Schillings – which also represents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle« reported the DailyMail, adding that she is also « in divorce from the father of her two children, to whom she was married when she worked Johnny Depp ».
On the other hand, she was not part of his legal team during his highly publicized trial with Amber Heard, who moreover owes him 10.35 million dollars in damages, as recalled by the British tabloid. But if Joelle Rich had therefore « no professional obligation« at this trial, she was all the same »shows up in the courtroom to offer ‘support’ to the star of Pirates of the Caribbean ». A case she would have judged as « personal » for her.
The English newspaper also recalls that Joelle Rich is not to be confused with the lawyer Camille Vasquez, who had defended Johnny Depp during his trial with Amber Heard and who had been suspected of having more than friendly relations with the actor. What she denied outright, the DailyMail revealing some time later that she was actually in a relationship with British WeWork executive Edward Owen (company known to manage real estate in Europe), at the time of this trial.
