According to a US Weekly insider, the chemistry between the new couple is “off the charts” and they are the “genuine thing.”
After the tabloid newspaper ran an article alleging that Depp was a “wife beater,” Rich was one of the attorneys on Depp’s legal team that filed a libel lawsuit against The Sun’s publisher, News Group Newspapers, and then-executive editor Dan Wootton.
The judge ruled that the story and the allegations of Depp’s domestic violence against his ex-wife Amber Heard were “basically true,” and Johnny Depp lost the case in 2020.
The reported romance between Depp and his other lawyer Camille Vasquez, which surfaced online in June, should not be confused with the one between Depp and Rich. Vasquez served as one of Depp’s principal counsels in the libel case he won against Amber Heard. Vasquez quickly put an end to the rumors, calling them “sexist.”
Rich stayed out of Depp’s earlier this year defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard in the US. She did, however, participate in the trial in several ways.
Rich is currently separated from his wife and has two kids. She is separating from her husband at the moment.
Depp previously wed Aquaman actress Amber Heard in 2015, and Lori Anne Allison, who played her, from 1983 to 1985. Additionally, Winona Ryder, Kate Moss, and Vanessa Paradis have been Depp’s ex-girlfriends. With his former partner Paradis, he has two children: Jack and Lily-Rose Depp.
The 59-year-old actor filed a defamation lawsuit against Heard in April after she referred to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse” in an op-ed that appeared in The Washington Post. She, he maintains, started their tumultuous relationship, and her accusations cost him “everything.”
Depp received more than $10 million in damages after a lengthy, open trial, which contrasts with the conclusion of the UK libel case two years earlier.
