Johnny Depp has been pretty consistent in hitting the headlines but for not-so-good reasons. Currently, he’s been indulged in a libel battle with News Group Newspapers over a story published in The Sun, which termed him a ‘wife-beater’ over his controversies with Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp went through the fifth day of his libel case in the High Court of London. During the latest testimony, the Fantastic Beasts actor made a shocking revelation in the court about his financial crisis. He also spilt the beans over his debt issues caused due to his former business managers.
As per the report in mirror.co.uk, Johnny Depp’s lawyer asked the amount he lost due to his business managers. Speaking about the same, Depp quoted, “It was put to me this way. It was put to me since Pirates II and III I had made – and it seems a ludicrous number – $650 million.”
“When I fired them for the right reasons I had not only lost the $650 million but I was $100 million in the hole because they had not paid the government my taxes for 17 years. It was a bad meeting,” Depp continued.
Johnny Depp even told that he got such a crap piece of news just before the 30th birthday of ex-wife Amber Heard’s i.e. on 21st April 2016.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor even confessed of smoking a joint to make himself comfortable and getting hurt by Amber Heard for ruining her party.
