As per TMZ, Camille finds Depp amusing and has formed a friendship bond with him due to his pranks and sense of humor.

In fact, one insider told TMZ, “Camille is happily taken. She’s dating a British fella, who works in real estate with whom she’s been in a serious relationship for several months.” Camille doesn't think Johnny treats her any differently than any of the other lawyers, the insider said, adding that they're all just trying to stay strong while this trial heats up and hoping for a victory for Johnny.

In Johnny Depp's legal team, his attorney Benjamin Chew and Camille played a very important role in the trial. During the trial's opening arguments last month, Camille accused Heard of being an aggressor during her relationship with Depp.

Following Depp's divorce filing, she claimed Heard portrayed herself as the victim adding, “She [Amber] is obsessed with her public image. She has been living and breathing this role for years now and she is preparing to give the performance of her life.”

Johnny Depp has filed a $50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard over false allegations of domestic abuse which the Pirates of The Caribbean star says have destroyed his personal life and his career.

On the other hand, Amber has filed a $100 million lawsuit against him. The trial is now taking place in Virginia and is being broadcast live on the internet. Amber was testifying at a recent hearing about a confrontation she had with Johnny in March 2015, which also involved her sister Whitney Heard, who was attempting to defend her.
