Details on the relationship
According to Page Six, Joelle Rich is a London-based lawyer who is separated from her partner at the moment. So, there remains a possibility that her divorce may not have been finalized yet. This comes as a surprise for many as multiple people on the internet and other onlookers were convinced that Depp was instead dating his US representative Camille Vasquez – given that both of them looked quite close to each other during the widely televised trial.
However, it is with the recent confirmation of Johnny Depp dating another lawyer that the rumors about the actor having a relationship with Vasquez finally got quashed. Talking about Camille Vasquez, she did address the rumors earlier during her interviews after the monumental win over Amber Heard’s team in the USD 50 million libel case that caught the entire world’s attention. She slammed all the spinning stories and called the speculations unethical and sexist.
Rich’s support towards Depp
Reports suggest that during the US trial, Joelle Rich was present to show her support for the actor. An insider told the US Weekly, “There was no professional obligation for her being there.” The same insider also added that the two of them used to meet discreetly in hotels during the earlier stage of their relationship. The source further stated, “Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.”
