Throughout the 6 week trial involving Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, fans are talking about every moment of the case in detail on social media platforms, presenting their take on whatever was going on in the courtroom, including wrongly speculating that Camille Vasquez was secretly dating the actor. She recently opened up about the same with People Magazine and said:

“I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job. It’s disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny-who is a friend and I’ve known and represented for four-and-a-half years now-that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional. That’s disappointing to hear.”

The lawyer further added by saying that, it is unethical for lawyers to date their clients.

“It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist. It’s unfortunate and it’s disappointing, but at the same time, it kind of comes with the territory. I can’t say I was all that surprised.”

The lawyer continued:

“I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. But when I say us, I mean the entire team, and of course, that includes Johnny. And, I’m Cuban and Colombian. I’m tactile. What do you want me to say? I hug everyone. And I’m not ashamed about that. My work is my love and when I love, I love really deeply. This man was fighting for his life and it broke my heart to see him day in and day out have to sit there and listen to the most horrific allegations being made against him. And if I could provide any bit of comfort, then, of course, I would do that, whether it’s holding his hand or letting him know that we were there and we were going to fight for him because he deserved it.”
