Imagine a man living a life where he spends up to Rs 13.5 crore each month.
That's Johnny Depp for you. The Pirates of the Caribbean star recently fired his management firm TMG (The Management Group) and sued the company for fraud.
However, TMG has now filed a cross-complaint alleging that Johnny Depp was living an "ultra-extravagant lifestyle" wherein he would spend "in excess of $2 million (approximately, Rs 13.52 crore)."
The cross-complaint by TMG illustrates Depp's over-budget excesses in detail:
$75 million (over Rs 500 crore) on 14 residences spread all across the world
An expenditure of $18 million (over Rs 120 crore) to buy and renovate a 150-foot yacht
$30,000 (Rs 20 lakh) a month on "expensive wine" that Depp would get flown from around the world to him for his "personal consumption"
"Depp also paid over $3 million (Rs 20 crore) to blast from a specially made cannon the ashes of author Hunter S. Thompson over Aspen, Colo.,: the lawsuit against Depp additionally states.
According to TMG, Depp fired the management firm and refused to pay back the company on a loan worth $5 million (Rs 34 crore). He then sued TMG accusing the company of "self-dealing and gross misconduct."
"Johnny Depp alone was solely responsible for his extravagant spending. Over 17 years, The Management Group (TMG) did everything possible to protect the actor from himself. In fact, when Depp's bank demanded repayment of a multi-million-dollar loan and Depp didn't have the money, the company loaned it to him so that he would avoid a humiliating financial crisis," the TMG states in a statement it provided to TheWrap.com.
The statement goes on to say that "Over 30 years, TMG has never been sued by a client. The only reason Depp filed this lawsuit was to interfere with TMG's ongoing efforts to be repaid on the loan they had made to bail him out. TMG worked day and night to professionally manage Depp's business affairs, adhering to the highest standards."
In 2017, Johnny Depp will be seen on the big screen soon in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales followed by Murder on the Orient Express.
