We have all heard of Johnny Depp’s lavishing and extravagant lifestyle, but the details reveal a bit more than you may have bargained for. Talk about heavy spending! Depp reportedly spends $2 million a month.
He claimed that The Mandel Company (TMG) grossly mismanaged his affairs, failing to accurately pay his taxes on his behalf, even made unauthorized loans, and overpaid for many services, which according to him, cost him “tens of millions of dollars”.
This eventually lead to financial trouble. Depp states having become aware of this in March of last year.
The lawsuit itself stated that Depp is living an extravagant $2 million a month lifestyle, which includes a total of $30,000 spending only on wine brought from all over the world, 14 houses and several real estate, and collectible 70 guitars.
Filed this week, the lawsuit claimed that TMG “did everything within its power over the last 17 years to protect Depp from himself and to keep Depp financially solvent” but that TMG “did not have the power or ability to control Depp’s spending or his numerous other vices, or to force Depp to make wiser financial decisions.”
“Depp lived an ultra-extravagant lifestyle that often knowingly cost Depp in excess of $2 million per month to maintain, which he simply could not afford,” writes attorney Michael Kump in the cross-complaint.
“Depp, and Depp alone, is fully responsible for any financial turmoil he finds himself in today.”
Once the details of the lawsuit from TMG, juicy information was discovered on the frivolous things Depp spent money on, some of which may blow your mind.
This does not only include the 45-acre chateau in the south of France, which has face valued of $13.5 million. It also covers a chain of islands in the Bahamas, several houses in Hollywood and penthouse lofts in downtown Los Angeles.
He even owns a horse farm in Kentucky. As if this weren’t enough, Depp has a full set of employees at each house.
Oh, and did we forget to mention his marvelous taste for fine wine? Depp has an enormus appetite for wines and has them shipped from all over the world for his liking.
He was also believed to have spend ‘millions’ to purchase and keep an expensive art collection, made up of more than 200 collectable pieces from famous artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol.
This does not leave out living expenses for his sisters and late mother. Not only that, but he also purchased a multi-million dollar home in Hollywood for his mother, along with a $35,000 a month residence for her when she was not well.
When speaking of the most atypical expense, is the $3 million he spent to fulfil friend Hunter Thompson’s dream of having his ashes “blast from a specially-made cannon” over Aspen, Colorado after his death in 2005.
