The highly publicised defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has polarised social media, and Depp’s superior celebrity status has swung public opinion in his favour.

In this scenario, Depp’s 37-year-old lawyer Camille Vasquez has emerged as a favourite among the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s fans, as courtroom moments have become instant fodder for speculation and viral content.

Regardless of the outcome of the trial, she has been praised for her effective cross-examination of Heard.

Elaine Bredehoft, Heard’s attorney, was visibly agitated by her constant objections to her line of questioning.

Outside the courthouse, Vasquez has amicably interacted with a large number of Depp’s fans and supporters. She has posed for photos with them as well as the alpacas they brought.

Soon after, dating rumours about her and Depp began to circulate, boosting her online popularity.

Vasquez has frequently been photographed laughing or hugging Depp, inciting dating rumours between the two. 

She could be seen jousting with Heard over his charity pledge as Aquaman. She can also be seen in another video claiming that Depp “got” her Aquaman role.
