A close insider has confirmed that Johnny has found love again, months after his court victory over his ex-wife Amber Heard. Let’s see who is Lawyer Joelle rich.
Johnny Depp’s new married girlfriend
There is a new woman in Johnny Depp’s life.
A source confirms to PEOPLE that the actor is dating lawyer Joelle Rich, who previously defended him in his U.K. libel lawsuit.
The insider claims that although they are dating, it is not serious.
The two first collaborated during the actor’s 2020 U.K. libel trial, when he sued The Sun for referring to him as a “wife-beater.” The court upheld the assertions made by the outlet as “basically true” (and his ex-wife Amber Heard testified to back up the claims). His effort to overturn the judgement was rejected in March 2021.
Rich did not participate in Depp’s following Virginia defamation trial against Heard as a member of his legal team.
