During his trial with Amber Heard, actor Johnny Depp and his lawyer were the subject of many rumors that Johnny Depp was having an affair with another of his lawyers.
Johnny Depp, 59, is in a relationship with his 37-year-old ex-lawyer, Joel Rich.
The couple met in a professional context in 2018, when Johnny Depp decided to sue “The Sun” newspaper for calling him a “woman drummer,” Us Weekly reported.
His lawyer in the case is Joel Rich.
Years later, their paths crossed again during a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard. Although the lawyer was not part of the legal team, she was present in court to support the actor. It was during this trial that they bonded. “Their chemistry is amazing. It’s really intense between them,” a source said in an interview with “Ma Weekly”.
“She has no professional obligation to attend the hearing against Amber Heard. This is personal,” she added.
The lawyer was separated from her husband, with whom she has two children, when she began dating Johnny Depp “discreetly”, their meetings taking place mainly in their early days at a hotel.
