Johnny Depp’s star lawyer Camille Vasquez celebrates verdict: ‘What we have said from the beginning’

Depp legal team celebrated win with a group hug and emerged to cheers

Johnny Depp’s star lawyer Camille Vasquez is celebrating victory in a case that has catapulted her to fame.

Ms Vasquez, who quickly became a source of internet fascination in the trial, hugged her colleagues

after winning her client’s bombshell defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Speaking outside the courthouse in Virginia, Ms Vasquez underlined her affection for her movie star client

which was so palpable throughout the case it even sparked - albeit completely baseless - romance rumors.

“Today’s verdict confirms what we have said from the beginning

that the claims against Johnny Depp are defamatory and unsupported by any evidence,” she said.

Mr Depp won his case against Ms Heard after a six-week, televised trial.
