‘And the Friendship of the Year Award Goes To…..’: Fans Brand Johnny Depp-Camille Vasquez Friendship the Purest Thing on the Internet After Camille Meets Him in Prague

The one thing that garnered its (un)fair share of headlines in the entire Depp-Heard defamation trial apart from the ongoings of the trial itself, was the friendly and playful dynamic between Johnny Depp and his attorney, Camille Vasquez.

Camille Vasquez won hearts with both her court rhetorics and her charm. She became a celebrity in her stead with offers of proper acting roles pouring in for the lawyer.

The negativity Camille Vasquez had to deal with

Camille Vasquez earned celebrity status during her appearance in the trial but it wasn’t all good for the talented attorney. She had to face a lot of misogyny for doing her job. People branded her as a pick-me girl, someone who was using male attention to gain fame.
Almost the entire trial was televised and fans focused on every minute detail which led to the rumors of Vasquez secretly dating her client owing to their playful dynamic. Camille Vasquez called these remarks and comments “sexist”. She stated to People in June:

“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 shared that she is already in a “very happy relationship” and even apart from that, it was “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.”

The attorney further added, “I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. But when I say we, I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny. And, I’m Cuban and Colombian. I’m tactile. What do you want me to say? I hug everyone. And I’m not ashamed about that.”

Camille Vasquez did not consider Johnny merely as a client but also as a friend. She had genuine empathy for Depp. Vasquez said, “This man was fighting for his life and it broke my heart to see him day in and day out have to sit there and listen to the most horrific allegations being made against him. And if I could provide any bit of comfort, then of course I would do that, whether it’s holding his hand or letting him know that we were there and we were going to fight for him because he deserved it.”

People on Twitter ball over the beautiful bond

It’s evident what a beautiful friendship the two share and many have moved past the dating rumors to appreciate the close platonic bond that Depp and Vasquez share.

It was a lucky stroke for Johnny Depp to find not just a talented lawyer to fight his case but also a genuine friend.
