‘Claims I hit my lover are just smears by Johnny Depp’: Amber Heard denies attack at airport Heard finished her testimony on Monday afternoon and has since undergone a tough and forensic cross-examination by the Spanish-speaking lawyer, who’s quickly gained global attention for her fierce, straight-talking approach.Beechy Colclough, 73, a celebrity therapist has been attending court with Depp.Beechy Colclough, 73, a celebrity therapist has been attending court with Depp.Beechy Colclough, 73, a celebrity therapist has been attending court with Depp.

“You’re the one who assaulted someone with a bottle in Australia, isn’t that right, Ms. Heard?” she asked the actress in her second day of cross-examination on Tuesday. Mr Colclough has helped Kate Moss, Sir Elton, Michael Barrymore and more. “You weren’t scared of him at all, were you?” She was also the lawyer to whom Heard admitted she hadn’t donated part of her $7 million divorce settlement to charity as promised, and pressed her on several sensitive subjects, such as whether she had edited photos of herself with bruises and how she landed her Aquaman role. A victim of his said: 'What he did is little better than abuse or rape'. “Mr Depp got you that role in Aquaman, didn’t it?” said Vasquez. “No, Miss Vasquez.

I got myself that role by auditioning,” Heard was seen snapping back at her this week in a clear sign the attorney had got under her skin. Attorney Camille Vasquez / AP Vasquez has already earned herself a legion of die-hard fans, including a prominent attorney who told the New York Post she was the “unrivalled star” of the trial. Her on-screen “chemistry” with Depp has also triggered a tsunami of speculation that the pair are dating, a rumour sources were quick to shut down this week in the latest twist of the blockbuster trial. So what is Vasquez’ background and who is she dating, if not Depp? Here’s what we know so far. Attorney Camille Vasquez with Johnny Depp / REUTERS Top of her game Little is known about Vasquez’ upbringing but reports say she was born in July 1984 to Colombian parents Leonel and Marilia Vasquez, who live in a $1m home in Buena Park in Orange County, California.

Vasquez is also believed to live in Orange County, working for international law firm Brown Rudnick and based in their Californian office there. She specialises in litigation and arbitration and is clearly among the hottest in her field. “Camille is adept at formulating offensive and defensive litigation strategies for private clients,” reads her bio on the firm’s website. “She also has extensive experience handling parallel reputation management and crisis communications issues arising from these engagements.” According to the bio, the 37-year-old is fluent in Spanish and graduated from the University of Southern California in 2006 before going on to graduate from Southwestern Law School in LA in the class of 2010.

Little is known about her previous cases, but Brown Rudnick’s site says Vasquez won the Best Lawyers in America award for Ones to Watch, Commercial Litigation for 2021-2022. She is one of several members of Depp’s legal team, alongside Stephanie Calnan, Andrew Crawford, Rebecca MacDowell Lecaroz, Yarelyn Mena, Jessica Meyers, Samuel Moni and Ben Chew, who has previously represented pop legend Cher. Power suits and power statements “So Mr. Depp isn’t the only domestic partner you’ve assaulted, isn’t he Ms. Heard?” Vasquez was seen asking the Aquaman actress this week, in one of a series of what are being called “aggressive” cross-examinations.

This particular line of questioning involved a power-suited Vasquez citing an article reporting Heard’s 2009 arrest at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, after accusations she hit her ex-girlfriend. “You committed violence against Miss Van Reed during you relationship didn’t you?” Vasquez asked. “And it was covered in the press, isn’t that true?” Vasquez and Depp / AP Other notable put-downs by Vasquez include her suggesting Depp “got [Heard] that role in Aquaman” and edited photographs of her allegedly injured face, several of which escalated into angry back-and-forths between the attorney and the actress. Supporters of Vasquez’s — most of them die-hard Depp superfans — have been quick to grant her hero status. “In a world of Amber Heards, be a Camille Vasquez,” one tweeted.

“In the age of the Kardashians and social media influencers, do your best to make your daughters become the next Camille Vasquez,” said another. One said that while she is still a Johnny Depp fan, she is also now a “die-hard Camilla Vasquez fan” while another praised a moment where Vasquez quipped, “Let’s see if we can refresh your recollection” after Heard said “I don’t recall”, calling it an “action hero line”. But praise for Vasquez hasn’t been restricted to tweets — the meme machine has quickly gone into overdrive. On TikTok, videos tagged #CamilleVasquez have racked up more than 541.8m views and a dedicated new account @camillevasquez already has more than 65.

2K followers, with “romantic” clips of her and Depp looking as though they’re holding hands set to pop remixes. Meanwhile the hashtag #camillevasquezforpresident already pulls up dozens of posts on Instagram, with videos of a smiling Vasquez next to a frowning Heard. Elsewhere on social media, fans have shared pictures of themselves wearing “I heart Camille Vasquez” t-shirts and memes making her out to be everyone including Marvel character Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball and Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde (brunette). Courtroom antics, romance rumours and the real(tor) star who’s stolen her heart Glances across the courtroom. Touches and hugs after cross-examining.

Chuckles outside court when asked if she’s dating her client Depp. Predictably, attention didn’t stay on Vasquez’ stellar CV or legal skills for long. Much of the social media storm around the attorney’s appearances in court have not only involved reductive statements about her good looks but her “chemistry” with Depp, which quickly turned into speculation that the two of them are dating. “She is a smitten kitten,” one fan captioned a TikTok clip of the lawyer in court. “I hope she’s single because I see flirting and I hope they live happily ever after,” tweeted another.

Journalists have been quick to address the rumours head-on. “The people want to know, are you dating Johnny Depp? It’s all over the internet. Can you set the record straight, yes or no?” a TMZ reporter asked her as she walked out of the Fairfax courtroom on Tuesday afternoon. The Californian attorney refused to answer, offering a laugh and a polite “sorry” as she brushes her hair aside and continues waving to fans. This morning, those rumours were put to bed.

According to US showbiz platform TMZ, she’s dating a British man who works in real estate — and has been for several months. “As for all the smiling and giggling some have noticed between Johnny and Camille, we’re told she finds him funny... and couldn’t help but laugh at some of his antics and/or his sense of humor,” a source close to Vasquez reporting told the outlet this morning.

“More importantly, our sources tell us Camille is happily taken. She’s dating a British fella who works in real estate — with whom she’s been in a serious relationship for several months.” The source added that “the entire legal team has become pally with Depp, their relationships morphing from simply professional to professional and genuinely friendly”. The trial was originally scheduled to conclude today on May 19, but has been extended to next Friday, May 27, when a jury will deliberate before a verdict is announced. Until then, fans can expect to see a lot more of Vasquez, her team and the inevitable meme-machine now following her every move.
