Camille Vasquez Denies Rumors of Dating Johnny Depp
The attorney Camille Vasquez, who was led the team that was defending the American actor Johnny Depp in his defamation case against his Ex-Wife Amber Heard, previously denied the rumors of dating her client.
In an interview with “People,” the attorney explained: “I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job.” She added, “It's disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny—who is a friend and I've known and represented for four-and-a-half years now—that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional. That's disappointing to hear.” Vasquez also noted that it is “unethical for us to date our clients. It's also an unethical charge being made. It's sexist. It's unfortunate and it's disappointing, but at the same time it kind of comes with the territory. I can't say I was all that surprised.”
Furthermore, no reliable sources have dug up the rumors.
