In addition to Depp and Heard, another star emerged during the trial: attorney Camille Vasquez
We can also call it the trial of the century because almost everyone was glued to their TV as Johnny Depp and Amber Heard squared off in court
Ultimately, it was Depp who prevailed, receiving $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, due to Virginia law (where the trial took place), he can only collect $350,000 of the $5 million in punishment.
In addition to Hollywood stars Johnny Depp and Amber Heard , another star emerged during the trial: attorney Camille Vasquez.
Depp fans seemed to appreciate Vasquez’s presence in court, and she held nothing back in her cross-examination of Heard. After her signing victory, several law firms sought to add Vasquez to his team, according to Barstool Sports, but at the end of the day, he stuck with his current employer, Brown Rudnick.
“We are pleased to announce that Camille Vasquez has been elevated to partner,” the firm tweeted on June 7. “She was a key member of the litigation team that won the jury verdict last week for actor #JohnnyDepp in his trial for -wife Amber Heard.”
The firm also shared a press release that included a statement from Vasquez, who stated, “I am delighted that Brown Rudnick has given me their full vote of confidence in having me join the association,” she shared. Now, she’s finally addressing one thing in her personal life: those Depp romance rumors.
Camille Vásquez denies romance with Johnny Depp
Camille Vasquez is putting those pesky Johnny Depp dating rumors to rest once and for all. The famous attorney spoke to People about all the buzz surrounding her and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, and she’s criticizing reports that the two are more than just friends. “It is disappointing that certain media outlets accepted it or said that my interactions with Johnny, who is a friend and I have known and represented for four and a half years, … were inappropriate or unprofessional.” she told the outlet. “It’s disappointing to hear that.”
Vásquez added that the rumors come “with the territory of being a woman who just does her job.” She also said that since she is Colombian and Cuban, it is in her nature to hug everyone, but she is not something that she is “ashamed” of. “I care a lot about my clients, and [Johnny and my team] have obviously become close,” she said of her relationship with Depp as she stated that her job is her love and “when I love, I love deeply.”
As fans who watched the trial know, Vasquez and Depp frequently embraced in court, bringing romance rumors to a head. On May 18, TMZ stopped by the attorney, asking if she and Depp were dating or not. In response, Vasquez simply smiled and then walked away without answering the question. The Daily Mail reports that she is not dating Depp, but a WeWork executive.
