Johnny Depp is dating Joelle Rich, his lawyer: The chemistry between them is obvious

It is said that, between hearing and hearing in court, love has arisen between Johnny Depp and the lawyer Joelle Rich, his defender in the case against The Sun. A trial that he lost in court but, apparently, not in the field of love.

The news of the alleged romance comes just a few months after the one that linked Depp with another lawyer, Camille Vasquez, a member of his defense team in the case against Amber Heard, his ex-wife. A story that had spread last June, but had no continuity, thanks also to the denials of the lawyer, who defined the rumors about an alleged relationship as "sexist" and "unethical." However, today the theories of his relationship with Rich gain strength, and have been confirmed by several American magazines, mainly by TMZ.

"The chemistry between them is obvious," a source close to the alleged couple told Us Weekly, "It's serious stuff." Rich also reportedly attended the Depp-Heard trial hearings in Virginia, but she was not part of the legal team. "There was no professional relationship," stresses the informant, "it was something personal." It is said that at the beginning of their relationship their meetings were very discreet, many of them in hotels, since at that time she was still married. Then they have continued to see each other more freely, especially now that the scenario has changed: there is still no divorce decree, but the relationship between Rich and her husband has officially ended and they lead separate lives.

Mother of two children, the British Joelle Rich is a partner of the Shillings law firm, which has a team of 60 lawyers and other collaborators, and is no stranger to the news. It was she who represented Meghan Markle when some British tabloids published the Duchess of Sussex's handwritten letter to her father, Thomas, which later ended up in the press without her being able to do anything about it. Another story, now also archived. The legal dispute between Depp and Heard may not have ended yet, but in the sentimental field, the actor has turned the page.

Who knows, maybe something good came out of the controversy with Heard in the end.
