Johnny Depp’s rock star lawyer, Camille Vasquez, has taken an interest in his personal life.
The 37-year-old lawyer – who helped win the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s recent defamation case – was spotted out with boyfriend Edward Owen.
The couple were bombarded by interviewers and photographers as they exited the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Virginia and headed to the airport on Thursday.
Fans waited outside for Vasquez and her husband to take selfies with onlookers. Reporters even tried asking a question or two, but the attorney was driving to her next destination when she got into a car.
Owen, 38, is an England-based WeWork executive who met Vasquez at the Cow gastropub in London in November, according to the Daily Mail. Educated at Cambridge, he is Head of Real Estate for Europe, Middle East and Asia for the co-working office space company.
“It’s a fairly new relationship, but Edward is smitten with it,” a source recently told the publication. “He has been visiting Camille in the US since this trial began and she plans to visit him in the UK once the case is closed.”
“It’s a long haul and they’re both high achievers in their respective careers, but they’re hoping it works,” the insider added.
Vasquez led the Depp trial as a key member of his legal team, representing the law firm of Brown Rudnick. Depp, 58, is suing his ex-wife Amber Heard for accusing him of molestation in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed.
The trial ended June 1, with the jury awarding Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.
The University of Southern California graduate questioned the “Aquaman” actress several times on the witness stand and also chaired Heard’s cross-examination.
The Post reported Sunday that the Spanish native speaker has been inundated with offers from Hollywood and is currently at the center of a bidding war between law firms who want her on their legal teams.
“Talent agents are circling Camille because they realize she’s the unicorn — a smart, accomplished, confident attorney whose impressive performance has propelled her to a rare level of visibility during the trial,” a source noted Sunday. “And the fact that she’s a woman of color is an added bonus.”
Vasquez has also received countless offers from some TV networks and cable networks.
“Camille is undeniably a great voice to speak out on legal matters and channels are naturally keen to talk to her about on-air opportunities,” a former channel executive familiar with the offerings told The Post .
Vasquez is still an employee at Brown Rudnick; However, celebrity attorney Judd Burstein believes that “she will soon be a partner.”
Another insider explained, “The legal community is filled with firms vying to be the winning bidder for Camille to join her team. She is a shark and her performance in the process showed it.”
