Johnny Depp’s Lawyer Camille Vasquez Denies Romance Rumors

Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, has called rumors of a romantic relationship with the actor “unethical” and “sexist”.

In a new interview, Vasquez – who rose to fame during the actor’s high-profile defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard – said she was disappointed that people thought her interactions with Depp were somehow “inappropriate or unprofessional”.

“I care very deeply about my clients and obviously we have become close. But when I say us, I mean the whole team, and of course that includes Johnny,” Vasquez told People, adding that the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star has been his friend and client for four and a half years.

“It is also an unethical accusation. It’s sexist,” she said. “It’s unfortunate and disappointing, but at the same time it comes with the territory. I can’t say I was very surprised.

Vasquez defended her interactions with Depp in court, saying she was “Cuban and Colombian.”

“And if I could provide some comfort, then of course I would, whether it’s holding his hand or letting him know we’re here and we’re going to fight for him because he deserves it. “

Vasquez said she was “very happy” in her relationship with boyfriend Edward Owen.

The lawyer quickly won her own fan following at Depp’s six-week trial for her difficult cross-examination of Heard. After the trial, in which Depp won $15 million, Vasquez admitted the new attention was “a bit overwhelming.”

“But if I can be an inspiration to young women who want to go to law school and study and work hard, then it was worth it,” she said on ‘GMA’ Wednesday.
