Lawyer Johnny Depp calls relationship rumors ‘unethical and sexist’

Camille Vasquez (37), one of the lawyers who represented Johnny Depp (59) in his case against his ex-wife Amber Heard (36), calls the rumors circulating about a possible relationship between her and the actor ‘unethical and sexist’. She made these statements in an interview with ‘People’.

“It’s disappointing and unprofessional that people immediately look for more about our relationship, especially since Johnny has been a client of mine for over four years”

“I care deeply about my clients and of course, the bond between us has grown stronger over the weeks of the trial. But when I say ‘us’ I mean the whole team and not just myself. It’s disappointing and unprofessional that people immediately look for more about our relationship, especially since Johnny has been a client of mine for over four years and we have developed a friendly relationship. But this is how it goes in society, so somehow I wasn’t surprised either,” said Camille.

Lawyers Johnny Depp speak of ‘fair’ trial against Amber Heard

Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew, the lawyers of Johnny Depp (58), believe that the lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard (36) has been ‘fair’. The two lawyers stated that on Wednesday on the talk show ‘Good Morning America’. They responded to criticism against the process. The actress’ legal team said, among other things, that Johnny won the lawsuit because the jury was biased and influenced by the many negative comments about her on social media.

The fact that Camille is now suddenly a star herself is a bit of a surprise to the lawyer. “It’s weird when people want to take selfies with you and all kinds of interview requests come in. But apparently, that’s part of it, I didn’t know that yet. What is most important to me is that I get messages from girls and young women who have been inspired by me to also study law. That is the best gift for me.”

There is even more news about Johnny Depp: one of the penthouses that the actor owned during his marriage to Amber Heard is for sale for 1.6 million euros. Housed in the Eastern Columbia Building in Los Angeles, the property is one of five penthouses the Hollywood star had in his real estate portfolio. The penthouse is almost 160 square meters in size, has one bedroom and two bathrooms. In addition, there is a large roof terrace with a swimming pool. From the roof there is a view of all of Los Angeles.

The other apartments are also for sale, but this particular property is where Johnny and Amber lived during their brief, and tumultuous, marriage. Amber’s friends and family lived in the other buildings.

Closing arguments in Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard lawsuit have been concluded: what’s in store for us?

On Thursday, the last witnesses were called in the trial between Johnny Depp (58) and Amber Heard (36). On Friday it was time for the closing arguments and the lawyers were given one last chance to convince the jury. Depp’s legal team begged the judges to give the actor his life back. “His life is at stake.” And Amber Heard’s lawyers were again very combative. “If he abused her once, she wins.”

In 2018, Amber Heard published an op-ed in The Washington Post. In it she wrote about domestic violence. Her ex-lover’s name – whom she met at the age of 23 on the set of ‘The Rum Diary’ – was not mentioned once, but everyone knew immediately who she was talking about. It is for that column in the American quality newspaper that Depp is now demanding fifty million dollars from the blond ‘Aquaman’ actress. He wants to have his name cleared in hopes of saving his waning career. Not much later, Heard filed a counterclaim against Depp, in turn demanding $100 million from him for defamation.

For six weeks we’ve listened to tough lawyers, bizarre psychiatrists, and striking confessions, but the trial has finally come to an end. The last witnesses were called on Thursday. On Friday, the lawyers for both Depp and Heard gave their closing arguments. When the last word has been said, it is the turn of the seven-member jury. But when will there be a verdict? Unfortunately, that is difficult to estimate, because we work with a jury. The timing of the ruling depends on how quickly they agree. The judges may reconvene daily until they reach a conclusion.

What are the stakes?

To win, Johnny Depp must prove not only that he was falsely accused of domestic violence, but also that the essay Heard wrote did cause him harm. If he proves right, Amber Heard will have to pay him damages – which will probably be quite high, given that he is demanding $50 million from her. However, she has filed a counterclaim for $100 million. This is also included in the decision-making process. If it is decided that Johnny Depp is indeed liable for her claim, he will also have to pay damages. Incidentally, it is also possible that the jury is not convinced by both parties and that they decide that neither of them should receive compensation. “The jury decides on damages and yes, it is quite possible that none will be awarded,” a spokesperson for Johnny Depp told The New York Post.

If the jury decides Amber Heard is not guilty, she will be able to recover (some of) her legal costs. Depp will then have to pay for that. The amount she will receive will be determined by a judge. In any case, the two do not have to fear a prison sentence. This is a civil action, not a criminal case. So a prison sentence is out of the question.
