Johnny Depp was sued by his business managers, whom he had sued for squandering his money.
That lawsuit revealed the actor spent $3 million to blast the ashes of renowned journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson out of a cannon, NBC News reports.
Depp said in a lawsuit two weeks ago that The Management Group (TMG), led by Joel and Robert Mandel, had defrauded him out of tens of millions of dollars. But TMG claims Depp just spent his money on a series of unusual things.
What the lawsuit claims Depp spent:
- $18 million on a 150-foot yacht
- $4 million on a record label that failed
- $30,000 a month on wine
- $300,000 a month for a 40-person staff
- $200,000 a month on private planes
- $150,000 a month on security
Depp, and Depp alone, is fully responsible for any financial turmoil he finds himself in today.
TMG claims it told Depp multiple times he was spending way more than he had earned. But when they told Depp that, he "often responded by rebuking and cursing his business managers," the lawsuit claims.
The company managed Depp's funds from 1999 until early last year.
TMG also claims Depp owes the company $4.2 million and has filed to foreclose Depp's home. They allege Depp's lawsuit was an attempt to stall the foreclosure.
