Chew will be co-counsel with Relli’s current lawyer, Camille Vasquez.
Chew and Vasquez worked together in the court trial involving Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard. The two became household names after the highly watched court proceeding where the actor was awarded millions from Heard.
Relli’s decision to bring on Chew comes after a bombshell video of Rocky holding a gun and possibly firing at Relli surfaced in his criminal case.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, in November 2021, Relli claimed Rocky invited over to a location in Hollywood.
After he arrived, Relli said an argument broke out between him and Rocky. He accused Rocky of pulling out a handgun and firing multiple shots in his direction.
Relli claimed one of the bullets struck him.
“As a result of being placed in fear of immediate grievous bodily harm, [Relli] suffered and continues to suffer physical, mental and emotional injuries,” Relli’s lawyer said in his civil lawsuit over the incident.
“As a result of being placed in fear of immediate grievous bodily harm, [Relli] suffered and continues to suffer physical, mental and emotional injuries,” the lawsuit added.
Rocky denied all allegations of wrongdoing. Prior to the video evidence being entered in court, Rocky argued that any damages were caused by third parties. His lawyer even accused Relli of making up the accusation against Rocky as part of an extortion attempt.
Relli and Rocky agreed to put the civil lawsuit on hold until the outcome of the criminal case.
As RadarOnline.com first reported, recently, Rocky told the court that he was attempting to settle the civil lawsuit.
