Johnny Depp’s lawyer may be the hottest Hollywood star right now, but boyfriend Edward Owen, 38, knew she was special in front of the spotlight.
Camille Vasquez, 37, is a household name as one of Depp’s lead lawyers, who helped him win his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36.
She caught audience attention during Heard’s cutthroat cross-examination and often feuded with the actress in the stands. One fan admired the lawyer so much that she even tattooed an outline of Vasquez.
The successful lawyer also made headlines when people questioned the extent of her relationship with Depp, 58, and some speculated the two had struck up a romance during the trial.
Couple rumors circulated as Vasquez didn’t answer reporters’ questions about the extent of her relationship with her client, laughing shyly and tossing her brunette waves over her shoulder.
However, the rumors have calmed down since Vasquez was spotted with her British boy toy at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Virginia on Thursday.
On the way to the airport, the couple was bombarded with questions, photographers and fans. Owen appeared to be in good spirits as he snapped selfies with viewers. Reporters attempted to ask a question or two, but the attorney continued on to her next destination as she got into a car.
Who is Edward Owen?
Owen is an England-based WeWork executive. He was educated at Cambridge, where he earned a history degree in 2005 and an MPhil in real estate in 2006.
He is also a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Owen currently works as Head of Real Estate for Europe, Middle East and Asia for the co-working office space company.
Before joining WeWork, Owen worked for international developer Swire Properties in China, Hong Kong and Miami for eight years.
How did Camille Vasquez and Edward Owen meet?
The high-powered couple met in London at upscale gastropub The Cow in November, according to the Daily Mail.
“It’s a fairly new relationship, but Edward is smitten with it,” a source recently told the publication. “He has been visiting Camille in the US since this trial began and she plans to visit him in the UK once the case is closed.”
“It’s a long haul and they’re both high achievers in their respective careers but they’re hoping it works,” the insider added.
Who is Camille Vasquez?
Vasquez is an associate of the high-profile law firm Brown Rudnick, which represented Depp in his defamation lawsuit against Heard. The native Spanish speaker is expected to be made a partner since winning the high-profile case, the Daily Mail reported.
Vasquez is based out of offices in Orange County, California and specializes in litigation and arbitration, according to the firm’s website. Her focus is on plaintiff defamation cases — like the one brought against Heard by Depp over her 2018 Washington Post comment.
Vasquez graduated magna cum laude from Southwestern Law School in 2010 and from the University of Southern California in 2006.
She was named One to Watch by Best Lawyers in America for 2021-2022. The Post reported Sunday that Vasquez has been inundated with offers from Hollywood and is currently at the center of a bidding war between law firms who want her on their legal teams.
