Keeping up with Johnny!
Back in January, Johnny Depp sued his ex-management company The Management Group for $25 million after they allegedly took millions in fees without his consent. The company responded with a cross-complaint blaming the actor’s financial woes on his excessive spending.
On Thursday, TMG came back with an amended cross-complaint and are — once again — accusing the Pirates of the Caribbean star of living an extravagant lifestyle he couldn’t afford!
According to documents:
“TMG repeatedly warned and advised Depp to reduce his spending and sell unnecessary assets. But ultimately, the decision whether and how to spend his money was a decision for Depp to make… Depp listened to no one, including TMG and his other advisors, and he demanded they fund a lifestyle that was extravagant and extreme.”
So what did the 54-year-old blow his money on? Apparently, he spent “well over $500,000” in storage fees, $1 million in expenses for his Bahamian islands, $17,000 in Prada luggage and handbags, and $7000 to “pay for and then store a couch from the set of Keeping Up With the Kardashians… which was a present for his daughter, Lily-Rose.”
Damn! Kris Jenner made some serious dough!
The management firm also responds to claims they made unauthorized loans using his money, and instead points the finger at two of Depp’s employees!
“To underscore just how frivolous this claim is, on information and belief, Depp has made no claim for reimbursement of any of these funds… Depp would attempt to have the world believe that TMG acted improperly at the same time he is still employing these two individuals in important, high-level positions even after they supposedly took well over $7 million in unauthorized distributions. Of course, this is not the case and Depp knows it.”
This lawsuit is just as dramatic as an episode of KUWTK!
