Don’t count on this Johnny Depp romance with his lawyer from the UK panning out to be a real thing. Joelle Rich, 37, is being touted as Johnny’s new girlfriend according to US magazine. She met Johnny, 59, when her London legal team lost his libel case against The Sun there. She was later seen in the courtroom with Johnny’s legal team in Fairfax, Virginia, when he sued Amber Heard. The trial ended June 1, and there is no evidence that they have been seen together again. Johnny has been in Europe touring and enjoying some success with his band and while on the road, he was briefly linked to an unidentified “red-headed mystery woman.” Tabloids there have yet to come up with any info about Johnny and Joelle and they are VERY nosey and persistent…

Amal Clooney isn’t just waiting around while George films movies. The happy couple are on their way to a party celebrating the premier of his new romantic comedy with Julia Roberts called Ticket to Paradise in London. Besides looking good, the British/Lebanese lawyer has two kids with George, but she is still committed to human rights and has been pushing the UN to act on evidence of war crimes in Ukraine. One of those rare lawyers you can actually be proud of…
The Hollywood Reporter is doing a brilliant job of tracking all the recent crimes against women in Hollywood and this week they took a look at the corrupt Hollywood lawyers. The late Garry Shandling’s ex-girlfriend Linda Doucette revealed her horrific experiences with powerful lawyers when she and Garry split. After living together for seven years, Linda says she left Garry because she wanted a baby and he did not. At the time she had a role on his series and she told Garry she didn’t want anything financial from him – she just wanted to keep her role on the show. He agreed. What Gary’s powerful lawyers put her through was a NIGHTMARE (Robert Shapiro even tried to kiss her!) after she was promptly FIRED from the show. Click HERE to read her story and REMEMBER these lawyers’ names….

We’ve seen Amal Clooney in a ton of fabulous outfits for many fancy occasions, but she actually DOES go to work. This is how she looks walking out of Doughty Street Chambers in London where she works as an international lawyer. You KNOW she’s serious because she has a big leather bag and George is not around. Her pinstripe suit and white shirt are subtle and appropriate. (Two words the Kardashians are not familiar with) We never dreamed we’d be saying such nice things about a LAWYER!
Amal Alamuddin Clooney, 36, and her husband George have more to chat about at the dinner table than most celebrity couples. She is currently working with another attorney to free a Canadian journalist unfairly imprisoned in Egypt for aiding terrorists. Amal has been named #4 on the 10 Most Influential Londoners list. And she manages to look great at Heathrow airport, returning from a business conference in Geneva.
Something GOOD has already come out of the 50 million dollar lawsuit Tom Cruise filed against Bauer Publishing (In Touch and Life & Style mags.) Evidence has been uncovered of Cruise’s treacherous lawyer Bert Fields and his shocking intimidation tactics aimed at the press. Emails and letters from Tom’s lawyer to various journalists and writers reveal a high level of desperation. Fields compared a Hollywood Reporter journalist to a “Nazi” for writing about Tom and his “religion.” The aggressive lawyer bullied and threatened another writer with a lawsuit if he wasn’t allowed to read a Scientology story before it was published and make “corrections.” Scientology lawyers used their deceptive and intimidating tactics on THIS writer also. They bully everyone they cannot control by threatening dreaded lawsuits. Hopefully, this case will reveal more about Scientology’s sleazy tactics.
Hold on! We actually have something POSITIVE to post regarding the Kardashian family! One of them has come to his senses and opted to get an education! Rob was runner-up on “Dancing With the Stars,” and we feared that would be the highlight of his life. But he’s put aside the usual Kardashian options of fame cultivating and name-selling, and tweeted that he has registered at USC this fall to earn a law degree. Rob graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2009 and just drifted since then. He’s following in his father’s successful, but not-so-glorious footsteps, thanks to his defense of OJ Simpson. This is the first good news we’ve had from the Kardashian Kamp in quite awhile. Nice work, Rob.
