According to sources close to the actor, Johnny Depp is involved in a romantic relationship with a wealthy London-based attorney who previously defended him in one of his libel cases. The Hollywood star’s 37-year-old lawyer Joelle Rich supported him in his explosive defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard in Virginia in April of this year. She was on his legal team when he sued UK tabloid The Sun in 2020.
Exclusive images from the Daily Mail show the two walking closely together as they left the Fairfax County Courthouse at the conclusion of proceedings, suggesting that their romance may have been still going strong at the time. Rich, who was not Depp’s legal representative during the six-week trial, was regularly spotted driving Depp home in his SUV.
Johnny Depp IS DATING Libel Lawyer Joelle Rich Who Served On His Team During Trials In UK
At one point, Depp was even seen putting his hand on the libel lawyer’s back in a sympathetic gesture. The mother-of-two and her financier husband Jonathan Rich are rumored to be divorcing and to have separated. However, during the recent court battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard, rumors spread that he was involved with his attorney Camille Vasquez, which ended up not being true, though the two did remain close friends.
This appears to be absolutely true, as the two have been seen together very close and the source told the Daily Mail that their chemistry was off the charts and that it was very serious between them. It looks like Johnny has had no issues bouncing back after the domestic abuse allegations and winning in court really vindicated him.
We hope the best for him and Joelle and we wonder what will be next in his life as he continues to soar high following the court case.
