Over the course of 2022, Camille Vasquez has earned a reputation as a go-to attorney for struggling Hollywood clients. Representing Johnny Depp in his libel trial against Amber Heard, Vasquez was widely praised for her performance on the cross-examination stand. A key component of Depp’s winning verdict over Heard in June, Vasquez scored a major victory by becoming a partner in his firm, Brown Rudnick.
Although much of social media was in Depp’s favor throughout the legal process, the implications of the trial and subsequent verdict were still hotly debated. Some feared abuse survivors would be more reluctant to speak out after the televised trial. “It just adds another barrier to what victims and survivors have to deal with,” said Ruth Glenn, president and CEO of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, for NPR.
That hasn’t slowed Vasquez’s breakneck career, though. With his focus on defamation lawsuits on the plaintiff’s side, it was only natural that he would attract more public figures who would bear lewd gossip. In September, “Yellowstone” star Q’orianka Kilcher retained Vasquez’s services after she was charged with two felony charges of workers’ compensation insurance fraud, according to foxnews. Despite the serious accusations against Kilcher, Vasquez and his firm told the press that they “intend to clear his name.” However, there is another controversial client with whom Vasquez reportedly decided to sever ties.
Camille Vasquez Reportedly Dropping Kanye West as Her Client
Just days after Kanye “Ye” West hired Camille Vasquez to represent him amid disappearing business contracts, Vasquez dropped him as a client. TMZ informed. After Ye weeks campaign of antisemitic comments, the rapper began to lose personal and professional connections in the world of entertainment. Sources told the outlet that Brown Rudnick, Vasquez’s firm, was willing to continue working with Ye on the stipulation that he retract his anti-Semitic tirades. After Ye only offered an apology on the October 19 episode of “Piers Morgan Uncensored” for “the confusion I caused” with his words, Vasquez reportedly told his firm that he was severing ties with the rapper.
You may have lost a top lawyer, but that’s just one of your many problems right now. the hollywood reporter revealed that the talent agency CAA stopped working with Ye in the last month. This comes right after page six reporting that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has ended her friendship and professional relationship with Ye following her recent comments. Wintour’s removal of rapper “Donda” is more devastating than it sounds: it means Ye, a fashion mogul, will no longer be receiving invitations to the Met Gala and definitely No grace Vogue covers in the future. Meanwhile, the fashion designer Balenciaga has also announced that he will be leaving Ye following the controversy.
