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

Fans were quick to comment, saying there was “genuine affection” between Depp and his attorney, as well as the rest of the team.
Many fans thought Depp and his lawyer might be a couple after watching the pairs’ tender interactions during the six-week trial.
Initially, Vasquez didn’t shut down the rumors, chuckling shyly when asked about their relationship, but was later seen leaving a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Virginia with her London-based boyfriend.
During the trial, a clip of Vasquez comforting Depp in the courtroom thrilled fans on social media.
The attorney previously described “and recently opened up 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 really love my clients and I’m Hispanic, I like hugging and touching people, not kissing them. But I gave 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’s collaboration on the ’18’ album.

Amber Heard filed her motion to vacate the verdict on Wednesday and is reportedly considering a new trial. Depp was also accused of slamming his ex with unsavory lyrics while performing on stage with Beck
Depp has joined Beck onstage at a string of recent gigs in the UK, playing covers of Dennis Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Killing Joke.
Along with a song, Depp sings the lyrics: “I think you’ve said enough for one fucking night”.
While another sings, “You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year-old itch… If I had a penny, it wouldn’t reach your hand.”
Heard had filed a motion to have Depp’s verdict set aside or a mistrial declared as a result of the jury’s decision.
His lawyers cited several factors, including an apparent case of mistaken identity with one of the jurors, and that the verdict was not supported by the facts.
But on Wednesday, Judge Penney Azcarate dismissed all claims, ordering the Aquaman actress to pay the money.
Heard still has the option to appeal the verdict to the Virginia Court of Appeals and has previously indicated she will.
