Camille Vasquez was spotted introducing her British boyfriend Edward Owen to her star client Johnny Depp at his concert in Prague on Monday.
The happy couple were spotted laughing and joking with the Pirates of the Caribbean star in a backstage area of his European tour with guitarist Jeff Beck, 79.
Depp was seen beaming at Vasquez, 37, and Owen, 38, before pulling him into a bear hug as she smiled watching on.
The embattled 59 year-old has embarked on the music tour, playing multiple concerts, and releasing new music after his high-profile legal battle against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Vasquez also found herself thrust into the limelight after defending the actor in his highly publicized case – with the jury largely siding with him.
Heard had claimed in a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post that she was a domestic abuse survivor, and has now been ordered to pay Deep $10 million in compensation and $5 million in punitive damages.
A court ruled that Heard had defamed him in the article, but the jury also awarded Heard $2million in her countersuit against Depp.
Vasquez was widely praised for her performance during the trial, and was awarded a promotion following her success in the courtroom.

Fans were quick to comment saying that there was a ‘real affection’ between Depp and his lawyer, as well as the rest of the team.
Many fans believed that Depp and his lawyer could be in a relationship after watching the pairs tender interactions during the six-week trial.
Vasquez initially didn’t shut down the rumors’, chickling coyly when asked about their relationship, but she was then spotted leaving a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Virginia with her London based boyfriend.
During the trial, a clip of Vasquez comforting Depp in the courtroom delighted fans on social media.
The lawyer previously described ‘and recently opened up about the situation again.
Speaking to Univision, she said: ‘Of course, I did [hug him]. He’s my friend, but he’s my client first, and he was going through something very difficult.
‘I love my clients very much and I am Hispanic, I like hugging and touching people, not kissing. But I did give him a hug because he needed it.’
Depp has also been accused of slamming his ex with scathing lyrics while performing on stage with legendary British guitarist Jeff Beck – the pair collaboration on album ‘18’.

Amber Heard had her motion seeking to have the verdict set aside on Wednesday, and is said to be considering a retrial. Depp has also been accused of slamming his ex with unsavory lyrics while performing on stage with Beck
Depp joined Beck onstage at a series of recent concerts in the UK, playing covers by Dennis Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Killing Joke.
With one song Depp sings the lyrics: ‘I think you’ve said enough for one motherf***ing night’.
While another he sings: ‘You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch … If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand.’
Heard had filed a motion seeking to have Depp’s verdict set aside or have a mistrial declared following the jury’s decision.
Her lawyers cited several factors, including an apparent case of mistaken identity with one of the jurors, and that the verdict was unsupported by the facts.
But on Wednesday Judge Penney Azcarate rejected all of the claims, ordering the Aquaman actress to pay the money.
Heard still has the ability to appeal the verdict to the Virginia Court of Appeals, and previously indicated that she would do so.
