Actor Johnny Depp and lawyer Joel Rich are dating

Joel Rich is a lawyer who defended Johnny Depp in his defamation fight in the UK and is dating the actor. 

Joel 38 was present in court during the Depp legal battle against the sun that started in 2020.

US Weekly reports that since they stopped collaborating on projects, 

their strong bond developed into a romance when the trial ended, 

and the two have recently started dating.

Rich was not a member of the legal team representing Depp in the defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year. 

Rich was one of the lawyers who worked on Depp's lawsuit against UK tabloids after being sued for publication in 2018.
