Us Weekly reported that the British attorney, a mother of two showed her support during Depp's defamation proceedings and was in Virginia.
Depp had been linked with firebrand lawyer Camille Vasquez who triumphantly represented him in a defamation suit against ex-wife Amber.
She dismissed the rumours telling the publication People:
"I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close. 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.”
