Johnny Depp, ’22 years younger’ divorce lawyer and new devotees… I got hit in the eye during the trial (Overall) [Oh!llywood]

[OSEN=최나영 기자] Actor Johnny Depp, 59, is dating a British lawyer who represented him in a 2020 defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard.

The Daily Mail reported on the 23rd (local time) that Depp is in a serious relationship with Joel Richie, the British lawyer who defended him and who works for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s law firm.

Richie is in the process of divorce from her ex and has two children. She is 37 years old and she is 22 years older than Depp.

Richie defended Depp in a defamation trial with The Sun media during the 2020 Johnny Depp-Amber Heard divorce war in England. The Sun branded Depp a ‘wife batterer’. However, the trial eventually lost, and his legal team at the time said, “It’s embarrassing.”

But regardless of victory or defeat, it was a phone call for Depp. A source said, “Rich and Depp are seriously dating. They are serious. Their chemistry is the best.”

Earlier, Depp was embroiled in dating rumors with another lawyer, Camille Vazquez, who at the time put the rumors to rest, calling them “sexist and unethical”.

“I have a very deep interest in my customers, and we are definitely close,” Vazquez told People in June. Bada said, “But when I say ‘we’, I mean the whole team. Of course, including Johnny.”

The Daily Mail also reported exclusively in June that Vazquez was in a relationship with WeWork executive Edward Owen.

On the other hand, Richie appeared before a court in Virginia, USA, even though he was not one of the lawyers in charge of the US case. Richie was there to show support for Depp, according to Us Weekly. “There was no professional obligation for her to be there,” a source said.

It is unclear when the pink relationship between the two began, but there are many opinions that love blossomed during the trial process.

Meanwhile, in June, a jury in Fairfax, Virginia, upheld Depp’s claim that Heard had never abused him, and ordered him to pay $15 million in damages, saying Heard had defamed Depp. Depp wins. Heard later declared his bankruptcy.

The defamation trial between these two people is sometimes made into a movie, and the work ‘Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial’ is a video streaming service of global media group Fox, Tubi. It will be released for the first time on the 30th.
