Johnny Depp’s former business managers aren’t through revealing the extravagant expenses the actor has racked up over the years.
After a ruling by a Los Angeles judge that Depp’s outrageous spending — which at one time totaled $US2 million a month — is not relevant in the legal battle between Depp and The Management Group, TMG has re-framed its argument. And in doing so it has disclosed some more heavy spending by its former client.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, TMG revealed in its latest cross-complaint that Depp charged more than $US500,000 in rental fees for storage warehouses that hold his Hollywood memorabilia, $US17,000 in Prada handbags and luggage, as well as $US7,000 for a couch that was featured on the reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The couch was a gift for his daughter, Lily-Rose.
“After terminating TMG in mid-March 2016, Depp continued to make the minimum payments on the CNB Visa card for a time, but then refused to pay anything further, forcing TMG to pay off the approximately $US55,000 that was still owing on the CNB Visa card,” TMG attorney Michael Kump wrote in the complaint. “All charges on the CNB Visa card are undisputedly charges that were incurred on Depp’s behalf similar to, and/or including, the exemplar purchases discussed above. Depp knows all of these expenses were incurred by and/or on his behalf, but simply refuses to pay his debts.”
The central issue in the case is if Depp’s financial issues are due to TMG’s negligence or the actor’s own. Each side is asking the court to rule to that effect.
