The Pirates of the Caribbean star and the lawyer first met when she defended him in his 2018 U.K. libel lawsuit that went to trial in 2020 after he sued U.K. tabloid The Sun for labeling him as a "wife beater" in one of their stories. The court later ruled that the claim was "substantially true."

And Rich wasn't only at the former Fantastic Beasts actor's side throughout his U.K. trial. They were photographed arriving at Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia together several times during his $50 million defamation trial against estranged ex-wife Amber Heard.

Sources later revealed that Rich was only present at the legal proceedings for moral support and was not involved with his legal team.

Although Depp came out of the trial primarily victorious, with a judge ordering the Aquaman actress to pay him $10.35 million, he was found liable for defamation for the amount of $2 million, bumping his total payout down to $8.35 million.

As OK! previously reported, the Black Mass actor recently filed an appeal, arguing that he believes the $2 million amount is unfair. However, Heard is also appealing the court ruling.

"We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment. We are therefore appealing the verdict," her rep said in a statement back in July. "While we realize today's filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice."

People reported Depp and Rich are no longer dating.
