The romantic interest of Johnny Depp’s star lawyer Camille Vasquez has now been revealed as a British WeWork executive living in London.
Vasquez, 37, and her boyfriend Edward Owen, 38, were seen Thursday exiting a Virginia hotel near the Fairfax County Courthouse after helping Depp obtain a $10.35 million blockbuster sentence in his libel suit against Amber Heard.
