BIOGRAPHY, AGE AND WIKIPEDIA: Attorney Joelle Rich, who previously represented him during his U.K. libel case is Johnny Depp's new dating girlfriend

Ms Rich and her mother Ava Rashti took part in a feature for a bridal magazine shortly before her Tuscany wedding, partly held in a villa where the film Room With a View was filmed in 1985.

The Merchant Ivory romantic drama based on the EM Forster novel starred Helena Bonham Carter and Julian Sands as young lovers with a supporting cast including Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith.

The picture spread in the magazine showed Ms Rich wearing a £10,000 Duchesse-satin wedding dress by Phillipa Lepley, a designer with a bridal store on Fulham Road, South Kensington, and assorted pieces of diamond and gold jewellery worth £20,000.

The school in Edgware currently has fees of £22,308 ($25,146) per year.

Ms Rich went to Birmingham University in 2003, where she studied law and is thought to have met her future husband Jonathan Rich.

She took a further legal qualification in 2006 after graduating, before starting as a trainee solicitor - and then qualifying - with global legal giant DLA Piper in London where she focused on intellectual property, media, and sport litigation.

Ms Rich joined leading privacy and reputation management lawyers Schillings in 2011 around a month after she married her husband Jonathan at a wedding in Tuscany, Italy.

She was eventually promoted to partner of the law firm which represents the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and actress Emma Watson. It is believed that she earns more than £250,000 a year.

Ms Rich's biography on the Schillings website says she 'works to defend [clients'] reputations against false and defamatory allegations in print, online, and on social media.'

Her focus is said to be on guarding her clients' 'privacy from unwarranted intrusion and media attention'.

Ms Rich spoke out for Depp in March last year after he was denied permission to appeal.

She told Deadline at the time that she 'seriously questioned' the UK judge's decision, adding that Depp was looking forward to 'presenting the complete, irrefutable evidence of the truth in the U.S. libel case against Ms. Heard where she will have to provide full disclosure'.

Ms Rich's husband trained as an accountant after graduating from Birmingham, working with global consultants PricewaterhouseCoopers before joining corporate finance group Bluebox where he is a director.

The actor is dating attorney Joelle Rich, who previously represented him during his U.K. libel case, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

"They are dating but it's not serious," the source says.

The two originally worked together during his 2020 U.K. libel trial, when the actor sued The Sun for calling him a "wife-beater." The court upheld the outlet's claims as being "substantially true" (and his ex-wife Amber Heard testified to back up the claims). In March 2021, his attempt to overturn the decision was overruled.

Rich was not on Depp's legal team for his subsequent Virginia defamation trial against Heard.

From her background as a lawyer to how she has supported Depp since his 2020 trial, here's everything to know about Joelle Rich.

Additionally, Us Weekly (who first broke the story) reports that Rich is a mom, sharing two children with her estranged husband. She shares that in common with Depp, who has two children of his own, daughter Lily-Rose Depp and son Jack Depp, whom he shares with ex Vanessa Paradis.

Though Rich was not on Depp's legal team for the Virginia defamation trial against Heard earlier this year, she did show up to support him, attending several proceedings inside the courtroom. Rich was also spotted hugging Depp's attorney Camille Vasquez inside the courtroom on May 16 and later was seen exiting the courthouse with Depp and his team on May 19.

Rich is based in London, where she is a partner at the international law firm Schillings, per her LinkedIn. According to her bio on the company website, Rich "helps individuals and families in the public eye protect their privacy and reputations" and has "expertise in libel, privacy and copyright disputes." She "works to defend [clients'] reputations against false and defamatory allegations in print, online and on social media."
