Johnny Depp’s new beau Joelle Rich according to reports by PageSix was the former attorney of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

The British lawyer has reportedly represented the former actress in her lawsuit against the British newspaper company, Associated Newspapers, which owns The Daily Mail and Mail.

Back in 2019, the 41-year-old Suits star sued the British tabloid and its parent company for privacy breach and copyright infringement concerning a five-page private letter written by Markle to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex won the case in December 2021, with the court deciding that the distribution of the letter breached her privacy and was “unlawful.” 

In a statement published after the court’s verdict was announced, Markle shared, “This is a victory not just for me, but for anyone who has ever felt scared to stand up for what’s right.”

The Mail was ordered to pay damages and print a front-page apology to the American member of the British royal family.
