Johnny Deppis said to be dating lawyer Joelle Rich who represented him in his UK libel lawsuit in 2020.
The pair worked together for Johnny’s battle against The Sun, which began in 2020, and Joelle, 38, was one of those representing the 59 year old Hollywood star.
Since the pair stopped working together when the trial finished,Us Weeklysays their close relationship has turned to romance and the pair have become an item in recent months.
One source close to the pair told the magazine: “Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.”
Other outlets in the US including respected websiteTMZalso reported the romance last night.
OK! has contacted representatives of Johnny Depp and Joelle Rich for comment.
Joelle was one of the lawyers who worked on Jonny’s case against the UK newspaper after he sued the outlet for libel in 2018.
And while she was not part of the legal team who represented him in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year, she was present in the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for the actor.
“There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal,” a source added, claiming that the duo “discreetly” met up in hotels during the early stages of their romance.
London based lawyer Joelle is a married mother of two but understood to be separated from her husband for some time and is in the process of getting divorced.
Earlier this summer, Johnny sparked romance rumours with another attorney,Camille Vasquez, who represented him in his US defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, she quickly quieted the rumour mill, calling the allegations “sexist” and “unethical.”
“I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close,” Camille toldPeoplein June. “But when I say ‘we,’ I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny.”
Camille noted that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor had been her friend and client for four and a half years.
“It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist,” she added. “It’s unfortunate, and it’s disappointing, but at the same time, it kind of comes with the territory. I can’t say I was all that surprised.”
