Johnny Was Previously Linked To Another Attorney
This is not the first time there have been rumors that Johnny Depp is dating his attorney. Earlier in the summer, the 59-year-old actor sparked romance rumors with another lawyer, Camille Vasquez, who represented him in his US defamation against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, Camille moved quickly to shut down the rumors that she was dating Johnny. The attorney labeled the allegations “sexist” and “unethical.” Camille told People:
“I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. But when I say ‘we,’ I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny.”
Camille also noted that the Pirates of the Caribbean star had been her friend and client for four and a half years. Despite being disappointed at the allegations, the lawyer said she wasn’t surprised as such things came with the territory.
At the moment, there are no contradictions to the rumors Johnny Depp is dating his attorney Joelle Rich. Only time will tell if they are accurate or not.
