During the slander trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in Virginia, the US, Camille Vasquez achieved a measure of online fame.
Following his string of anti-Semitic remarks and untrue claims about George Floyd, whose family is suing the rapper for harassment, misappropriation, and defamation, Kanye West is said to have hired Camille Vasquez, Johnny Depp’s defamation trial lawyer, to represent his business interests – contracts, deals, and the whole nine yards.

The rapper and businessman Ye, whose name was officially changed to Ye a year ago, has recently been under fire for his anti-Semitic comments in the midst of the ongoing “White Lives Matter” issue. His remarks created a commotion, and Balenciaga, a luxury clothing company, severed connections with him as a result.
Now, in the midst of this continuous economic setback, Mr. West recruited fresh legal counsel to review his business agreements and contracts. Camille Vasquez is reportedly one of the attorneys Mr. West hired from the law company Brown Rudnick, which is a well-known nationwide firm, according to TMZ.
Ms. Vasquez is a partner with the Irvine, California-based Brown Rudnick company.

Returning To Mr. West, George Floyd’s Attorneys Stated On Tuesday That The Rapper Will Be Subject To A $250 Fine.
According to the attorneys, Mr. West made false statements about Mr. Floyd’s passing in a recent interview, and he will be sued for “harassment, misappropriation, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress.”
On the podcast Drink Champs, Mr. West asserted that Mr. Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose rather than from a police officer kneeling on his neck, which ran counter to the findings of the medical examiner. In Minnesota, police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Mr. Floyd’s neck for nine minutes before he passed away in 2020. The Black Lives Matter movement saw a tremendous upsurge as a result of the incident’s video being widely disseminated.
According to TMZ, the Yeezy CEO’s financial affairs, including contracts and negotiations, will be managed by Camille Vasquez and her company, Brown Rudnick. Vasquez became well-known after she defended Depp in his six-week defamation battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard, which resulted in a jury finding in Depp’s favour.
