Johnny Depp, 59, has a new love after all the imbroglio generated by the separation of Amber Heard, 36. The American actor is dating the British lawyer Joelle Rich, according to the American website Page Six.
Rich was even the one who represented the artist in the lawsuit against the British tabloid The Sun, whom he accused of slander for portraying him as a “thunderer” of his ex-wife. The duo asked for a millionaire compensation, but lost the action.
The lawyer is in the process of getting divorced, although she is already separated from her husband. She is a mother of two and works in London. Although she did not participate in the actor’s trial in the defamation case involving Heard in the United States, she was present in court.
At the time, still at the beginning of their relationship, Depp and Rich would have met discreetly in hotels, according to Page Six. Representatives of the two cited could not be reached by the publication for comment.
Before the relationship came to light, it was speculated that the actor was involved with Camille Vasquez, the lawyer who won the case against Heard. At the time, Vasquez denied the information. She said it was a “sexist” rumor and that it would be “unethical”.
