Camille Vasquez, the lawyer for actor Johnny Depp, recently shared that she, along with other members of the legal team, still maintains regular contact with the star.
Continued Communication Beyond the Courtroom
A year has passed since the end of the controversial trial between Depp and his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard.
Vasquez, along with her colleague Benjamin Chew and others, confirm an enduring relationship with their high-profile client. The bonds forged during the high-stakes case seem to have transitioned smoothly into the realms of friendship and camaraderie.
"The last time I spoke to [Depp] on the phone was probably a few months ago, but we text often," Vasquez shared with PEOPLE. “There's a group of us that texts with him and we send emails, obviously congratulating him on the success that he's had in the last year.
He has a big birthday coming up, so I'm sure he'll be celebrating — foot up because, as you've seen, probably, reported in the news, unfortunately our guy got a fracture in, I believe, his ankle." Vasquez, along with her team, also plans to attend a show during Depp's music tour with the band Hollywood Vampires this summer, underscoring their continued support.
Celebrating a Collaborative Victory
Vasquez took a moment to acknowledge the diligent work of her legal team during the trial, highlighting their collective contribution to the successful outcome. "I'm so proud of the work we did, and it wasn't just me; this is a tremendous team with mostly associates that worked their little tail feathers off to do the job that we were able to do," Vasquez stated.
"We were such a team and we're still so united and we care about one another." The multi-year trial concluded in December of the previous year, when Heard revealed that they had reached a settlement, and both parties had dropped their appeals.
Vasquez emphasized the settlement’s terms, "Ms. Heard did pay Mr. Depp, not the other way around. I want to make that very, very clear. The judgment still stands. It will always still stand for the remainder of time. And Mr. Depp will be donating the money that Ms.
Heard paid to settle the appeal to a number of charities." In closing, Vasquez confidently stated, "Case closed, and we couldn't be happier about it for him in the best possible way. And, again, the most important thing to us and to him was that the judgment would stand."
