Johnny Depp’s Former Business Managers Defend Themselves By Stating Obvious

Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney

The war between actor Johnny Depp and his former business managers TMG has spilled over into the media. TMG, aka The Management Group, have went on the offensive against the actor’s claims that the company defrauded him to the tune of $25 million dollars. In January of 2016, The Pirates of the Caribbean star filed suit against TMG for fraud. Depp claimed that they were the reason behind his current financial crises and has brought the fight to the media about his former business managers. As a result, he has opened up a can of worms he might probably didn’t want opened.

What’s eating Johnny Depp?

Rather than take it easy on their former client, TMG came out with guns blazing. In an amended complaint before the court, some major depth charges were lobbed at the actor:

“Spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to employ a full-time sound engineer, who Depp has used for years to feed him lines during film production.  Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorize his lines.”

Furthermore, Depp’s former business managers contend that he has an unhealthy spending compulsion.  Most noteworthy and damning for Johnny are recent documents filed Monday. From

“Documents claim Depp’s “ultra-extravagant lifestyle” cost $2 million per month, “which he simply could not afford. The firm “did everything possible to protect Depp from his own irresponsible and profligate spending.”

Johnny’s lawyers have countered these accusations saying”these are the words of the guilty.”
