The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star and her lawyer have been dating for months, she defended him in the defamation trial (lost) against the tabloid “The Sun” in November 2020
After being glued to videos following Johnny Depp’s trial against Amber Heard, and imagining a happy ending with the love between the actor and his lawyer Camille Velasquez, which won him the trial; now comes the news that he will still make the fans dream. The shadowy Depp has a new love, he has moved on and his girlfriend is just a lawyer, but not that one, another one. The lucky one is Joelle Rich, 37-year-old Londoner who represented Johnny in his libel suit against “The Sun” in 2020, when the actor sued the popular tabloid for calling him a “wife beater.” Although the trial ended in a defeat for Johnny Depp, it seems that between the 59-year-old and the lawyer a friendship was born that resulted in something more.
The Hollywood star and Rich have been dating for a few months but without ever attracting attention to the paparazzi, who only in the last few hours managed to capture the special feeling born between the two. Moreover, Rich had been photographed at the Fairfax County Courthouse, Virginia, during the notorious trial a few months ago, but she was there not as a lawyer, but as “Depp’s companion.” Months ago the magazine “People” wrote that the two “are dating but it’s nothing serious”, while the closest friends were ready to swear that the story would last. “It’s serious, they are made to be together … Their alchemy is boundless,” wrote “Us Weekly”.
Very little is known about her: she is an expert in privacy protection, works mainly in defamation cases and “defends reputation against false and defamatory accusations in the press, online and on social media”, reads the bio on the law firm’s website. And there is a very particular client who was defended by the studio where Johnny Depp’s new girlfriend works: Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex was represented by Joelle Rich’s study colleagues in the lawsuit against Mail On Sunday last year. As for private life, it seems that Joelle Rich would have changed her life after meeting Johnny Depp: “She was married when he met him, but now he is divorcing her. She and her ex-husband have two children ”the anonymous sources report.
