59-year-old Johnny Depp would be in a relationship with his 37-year-old ex-lawyer Joel Rich. The couple met professionally in 2018 when Johnny Depp decided to sue The Sun newspaper for calling him a “female drummer,” Us Weekly reported.
In this case, he was represented by lawyer Joel Rich. Years later, their paths crossed again during a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard. Although the lawyer was not part of the legal team, he was present in the courtroom to support the actor.
It was during this trial that their relationship developed. “Their chemistry is just amazing. It’s really serious between them,” the source said in an interview with Us Weekly. “He had no professional obligation to attend the trial against Amber Heard. It was personal,” he added.
The lawyer separated from her husband, with whom she has two children, when she began dating Johnny Depp “with caution”, their meetings mostly took place in hotels.
