Johnny Depp’s lawyer-turned-girlfriend Joelle Rich reportedly attended several proceedings of his US defamation trial against Amber Heard to show support for the actor inside the courtroom, reveals media report.
A source spilled to US Weekly about London-based attorney’s presence at the trial, “There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal.”
In one photo, Rich could be seen hugging Camille Vasquez, a lawyer who represented Depp in his U.S. case against Heard in court proceeding in May. In another photo, she was seen leaving with the actor from the courthouse in same car.
The outlet first broke the news on Thursday that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor and Rich are “in a serious relationship”.
“Their chemistry is off the charts as the pair discreetly met up in hotels before their romance was public. They are the real deal,” the source explained to outlet.
Rich, who shares two children with her estranged spouse, was part of Depp’s legal team during his libel case against The Sun in UK which he lost in November 2020.
