The 38-year-old lawyer, Camille Vasquez, who has recently joined the NBC News channel as a news analyst is going through a rough time since her joining. As per reports by RadarOnline, she is getting the cold shoulder from the staff members.
She landed into a lucrative deal and ended up joining the show however the sources shared with the outlet that her timing was quite wrong.
“Poor Camille arrived at precisely the wrong time.”
It is because the channel was getting rid of the major staff with layoffs however her joining the channel made things worse for others with the former lawyer representing Johnny Depp in his defamation case ending up being targeted.
“The week she arrived, double digits of workers were fired — yet NBC found the money to hire a 38-year-old beauty queen!”
The source shared that the American attorney would have been a nobody if she was not a part of the publicized trial of the Dead Man actor and his former wife, Amber Heard.
“Camille wouldn’t have been booked as a guest before working for Johnny Depp, and now she’s on the staff, and folks around the office are mad,”
That is not entirely incorrect as the trial made her a superstar in Depp’s fans’ eyes making her one of the most famous lawyers in the industry. She was also rumored to be dating her client during the infamous trial however she put an end to the rumors.

During the defamation trial, many speculated that the duo is likely to be in a relationship due to the frequent moments with the 59-year-old star. However, she made things very clear by clarifying that the speculations made around their relationship were completely “inappropriate” in an interview with People.
She added at the time,
“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.”
“It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist,” she said. “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.”
A while after the trial ended, Depp was indeed dating a lawyer but it was Joelle Rich, who was involved with him during his 2020 UK libel case against the Sun.
