Johnny Depp ‘spent $30,000 a month on wine’


Hollywood icon Johnny Depp spent $30,000 a month on wine, according to the actor’s ex-managers.

The 53-year-old star recently accused The Management Group (TMG) of defrauding him out of tens of millions of dollars, but the firm has hit back in a blistering countersuit of its own, which was filed on Tuesday (31.01.17).

TMG claims the award-winning actor left himself on the brink of financial ruin due to his own eye-watering spending habits, which is also said to have included splashing out $3 million to blast Hunter Thompson’s ashes out of a cannon, $18 million on an 150-foot yacht and $200,000 a month on private planes.

TMG has insisted Johnny was kept fully informed that he was spending his fortune more quickly than he could afford.

In a statement, the firm said: “Depp often responded by rebuking and cursing his business managers for issuing such warnings and advice, while increasing his extravagant lifestyle and spending, and demanding that his business managers find some way to pay for it all.

“Depp, and Depp alone, is fully responsible for any financial turmoil he finds himself in today. He has refused to live within his means, despite the best efforts of TMG and the repeated warnings about his financial condition from TMG and his other advisors.”

What’s more, the company has alleged Johnny still owes TMG as much as $4.2 million and has, therefore, filed a non-judicial foreclosure proceeding on the Hollywood star’s home in an effort to recoup that debt.

TMG said, too, that Johnny’s lawsuit – which was filed on January 13 – was simply designed to delay the foreclosure proceeding.

TMG was responsible for handling the actor’s finances from 1999 until early 2016, during which time he was among the best paid and most sought-after stars in Hollywood.

    We are abiding law citzen of this country we need to be listened and heard in the wake of the said law indeed there are many things that are not prefect, Driver do not just wake up to and cause or commit the said offences.

    # The state of our roads – no stages-no signs etc

    # Traffic Police either takes bribe or mistreats in the midst of intimidation.

    # The police humanly speaking get tempted and constantly harass to get more bribes in the cartel.

    Finally look at the impact on both sides…

        don’t break the law and you will not have to bribe.As shalom states,this whole matter should be looked into in totality by law abiding citizens not people with the mentality of a law breaker.

    I strongly support the government on the rules. The rules should not be amended. Why are the private vehicle owners not shouting. Am a casualty of the situation that left as without a mother just because of over speeding. The resources we used for her illness for about three years and the sudden death that left us very poor and to make the matters worse we have not been compensated till now
    by the insurance for the loss. The famous “Michuki rules” came they made noise but today every passenger sits to his/her destination. We need sanity on our roads…….Mimi natoa sauti

    Why, do people want to break the law that you clearly know in the first place. Giving police a bribe will be breaking another law. So do not break one so as to blame the police when you decide to bribe him/her. I support the government fully.
