Amber Heard WARN Joelle Rich For Dating Johnny Depp Amber Heard just cannot stand to see Johnny Depp being happy! After the dust of their trial has fully settled, Johnny Depp has revealed he now has a new lover and Amber is fuming. Is Amber trying to warn Joelle Rich from dating Johnny? And what warnings is she trying to give? Courting in the courtroom. On September 22, 2022, Us Weekly reported that Depp and Rich—an attorney who represented him in his 2020 lawsuit against The Sun—were dating and that their relationship was “serious.”
The two had begun “discreetly” dating during Depp’s trial with Heard in April and May 2022. Depp’s two-year marriage to Heard ended in divorce in 2017, and Rich is the actor’s first known public romance since then. Jack Depp and Lily-Rose Depp, who he has with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. They dated from 1998 until 2011. Depp revealed why he never wed Paradis in a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone, despite their 13-year romance. “I never found myself needing that piece of paper. Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart,” he said at the time. “You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married.
Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I’m in because you’re constantly away or they’re away and so it’s hard. It wasn’t easy on her. It wasn’t easy on me. It wasn’t easy on the kids.” He continued, “So, yeah. The trajectory of that relationship — you play it out until it goes, one thing leads to another. So for whatever reason that ceases, it doesn’t stop the fact that you care for that person, and they’re the mother of your kids, and you’ll always know each other, and you’re always gonna be in each other’s lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it.”
But back to Johnny Depp and Joelle Rich. So…how did Johnny Depp and Joelle Rich start dating and who is the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s new girlfriend? How did Johnny Depp and Joelle Rich start dating? On September 22, 2022, Page Six said that Depp and Rich were dating following his defamation trial with his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Rich was married when she first met Depp, but she has since separated from him and is currently going through a divorc. Rich has two kids with her spouse. A source also told Us Weekly at the time that Depp and Rich’s relationship is the “real deal.”
“Their chemistry is off the charts,” the insider said. “It’s serious between them. They are the real deal.” While Rich wasn’t one of the lawyers that represented Depp in his 2022 trial against Heard, she was present in the courtroom to “support” the actor, according to Us Weekly‘s source. “There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal,” the insider said, adding that Depp and Rich “discreetly” met up in hotels in the early stages of their relationship. Despite Us Weekly’s source’s claim Depp and Rich’s relationship is “serious,” an insider told People at the time that that’s not the case.
“They are dating but it’s not serious,” the source said. Does Johnny have a taste for his attorneys? After Depp’s other attorney, Camille Vasquez, who represented him in his trial with Heard, addressed allegations that they were dating in an interview with People, Depp and Rich began dating. “I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job,” she said at the time. “It’s disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny—who is a friend and I’ve known and represented for four-and-a-half years now — that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional.
That’s disappointing to hear.” She continued, “I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. But when I say we, I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny. And, I’m Cuban and Colombian. I’m tactile. What do you want me to say? I hug everyone. And I’m not ashamed about that.” Vasquez also told People that “my work is my love” and “when I love, I love really deeply.” She also added of Depp, “This man was fighting for his life and it broke my heart to see him day in and day out have to sit there and listen to the most horrific allegations being made against him.
And if I could provide any bit of comfort, then of course I would do that, whether it’s holding his hand or letting him know that we were there and we were going to fight for him because he deserved it.” Vasquez also called romance rumors between her and Depp “sexist” and “unethical.” “It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist,” she said. “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.” A source also told People at the time that rumors of a relationship between Depp and Vasquez were “entirely, 100 percent, unequivocally untrue.”
Vasquez, for her part, is dating WeWork executive Edward Owen. She told People at the time that she was “very happy in my relationship” and emphasized it was “unethical for us to date our clients.” Who is Johnny Depp’s girlfriend, Joelle Rich? Rich lives in London and is an attorney and partner at the law firm Schillings International with a specialty in libel, privacy and copyright cases. “Joelle helps individuals and families in the public eye protect their privacy and reputations, both in and outside of the court room,” reads her biography on the firm’s website.
Well, at least she managed to keep their relationship private for a while. Her biography continues with – “Often acting for her clients in times of crisis, Joelle works to defend their reputations against false and defamatory allegations in print, online, and on social media. She has particular expertise in protecting individuals’ privacy from unwarranted intrusion and media attention. With over a decade of experience in media law, Joelle is able to astutely identify risks to clients’ privacy and reputation, devising effective strategies to safeguard them.” She sure was unable to save Johnny’s reputation in that first case.
Rich won the Silver Award for “Future Leader Initiative of the Year” at the Citywealth Future Leaders awards in 2021 and was shortlisted as a finalist for the “Future Leader in Private Client Services” award at the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards in 2021. Can’t blame Jonny for wanting a successful woman. Do you think Amber should be butting in Johnny’s relationships? Should the women hear her out?
