Johnny Depp’s much-publicised divorce case with ex-wife Amber Heard grabbed public attention for much of the part of the year. Now, rumors are floating that Depp is in a relationship with the lawyer who represented him during the UK libel trial. Her name is Joelle Rich. Amid reports that Rich and Depp are seeing each other, there is immense interest in who the new woman in the Hollywood star’s life is and when and how the two began dating.

As per the reports, Rich, 38, was present in court during Depp’s legal battle with The Sun, which got underway in 2020. Since they ceased cooperating on projects when the trial was over, their strong bond evolved into a romance, and the two have recently started dating. Rich was not a legal team member representing Depp during his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, which came to a conclusion earlier this year. Rich was one of the attorneys who worked on Depp’s lawsuit against the UK tabloid after he sued the publication for libel.
