Johnny Depp’s Demands for Court

July 25, 2017 - 6:15am

The battle between Johnny Depp and The Management Group continues.

Now, Depp is demanding that his business mangers’ allegations about his "psychological issues" and "compulsive spending disorder" be stricken from court records, according to a report in The Daily Mail.

  • Court documents obtained by the publication reveal that Depp, 54, believes his former business managers are disclosing information in an effort to humiliate him. He claims that they are adding "irrelevant and improper" statements and "inflammatory material" to "viciously attack" him.
  • The Pirates of the Caribbean actor filed a $25 million lawsuit in January accusing Robert and Joel Mandel of financial misconduct and fraud.
  • He claims their negligence has resulted in $5.6 million in tax penalties and interest. The firm countersued, claiming he lived an extravagant lifestyle that included an $18 million yacht and monthly $30,000 wine tabs.
  • Other extravagances included a $7,000 couch featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and $17,000 worth of Prada handbags and luggage.
  • Last week, a judge ruled that Depp's spending habits were irrelevant in the case. On Thursday, TMB went back to court with an amended cross-complaint that added more details of his spending, including an $18 million yacht, $200,000 per month on private plane fees and $500,000 in rental fees for his Hollywood memorabilia.
  • In the court documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Depp is demanding that the judge amend their countersuit and strike 100 paragraphs of allegations and "irrelevant" details from the record.
