Johnny Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez has garnered attention this week as celeb-watchers stay glued to the ongoing Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard court case day after day.
Vasquez and her client have raised eyebrows on social media with their open displays of affection, even embracing each other in court.
And in footage filmed outside the court yesterday, Vasquez could be seen smiling and giggling when one paparazzo asked her directly if she and Depp were dating.
"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?" the snapper asked her.
Vasquez smiled and laughed, but did not answer as she continued walking out of the courthouse.
However, TMZ reports that despite some Depp fans poring over their every hug and touch, their relationship is strictly professional – and Vasquez is in fact in a relationship with a British man who works in real estate.
Vasquez also made headlines during her at-times fiery cross-examination of Heard today, at one point noting that Heard had compared powerful men to ships "like the Titanic" in the 2018 Washington Post op-ed Depp is now suing her over.
"The iceberg is you, in this analogy, Miss Heard?" she asked – which Heard denied.
Vasquez then asked if the opinion piece was in fact about Depp, which Heard denied, saying that it was about what had happened to her after accusing Depp of domestic violence.
"It's a bit like that Carly Simon song (You're So Vain), is it not?" Vasquez quipped.
The top lawyer also grilled Heard on her claims Depp had sexually assaulted her with a wine bottle, asking her: "You're the one who assaulted someone with a bottle in Australia, isn't that right, Ms Heard? You weren't scared of him at all, were you?"
Heard denied the allegations.
Vasquez's performance in court this week has earned her some admirers – for both her conduct and her courtroom style:
A lawyer with the major international firm Brown Rudnick, Vasquez has been leading the cross-examination of Heard this week after the trial took a one-week break.
Vasquez's biography on the firm's website states that she's "adept at formulating offensive and defensive litigation strategies for private clients. She also has extensive experience handling parallel reputation management and crisis communications issues arising from these engagements."
