Johnny Depp’s Financial Woes Come From ‘A Clear and Epic’ Sense of Entitlement Says Ex-Manager
Johnny Depp’s former business managers aren’t taking his recent comments about their dispute lightly and they have escalated their claims against the actor in an amended complaint. The legal battle between Depp and The Management Group began in January, when the actor sued his former business managers for fraud. TMG fired back with the response, saying the actor’s financial woes are all his own. TMG says Depp’s sense of entitlement is “clear and epic,” as evidenced by his recent interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he said, “It’s my money. If I want to buy 15,000 cotton balls a day a day, it’s my thing.” “Depp listened to no one, including TMG and his other advisors, and he demanded they fund a lifestyle that was extravagant and extreme,” writes attorney for TMG in the amended complaint. “Ultimately, Depp and/or his sister and personal manager, Elisa Christie Dembrowski, knowingly approved all of Depp’s expenditures.”
Cited among the purchases are 14 residences, 45 luxury vehicles, 70 collectible guitars and enough Hollywood memorabilia to fill 12 storage facilities. Notably, the managers also claim that Depp spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on a sound engineer who feeds him lines on set. “Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorize his lines,” writes attorney TMG’s attorney also claims Depp’s “army of attorneys” have bailed him out of legal crises and made a series of “hush money settlements”, details of which they promise will be revealed during trial. Further, the business managers say Depp habitually lies to the public and authorities to avoid taking responsibility for his actions. Including the infamous Australian dog smuggling incident and reportedly volatile behavior with his now ex-wife Amber Heard. The Management Group’s attorney writes, “Depp’s 45-page complaint against TMG, which is replete with demonstrably false and fraudulent allegations, was filed solely to avoid the non-judicial foreclosure of his properties, and is just another example of Depp’s pattern of habitual lies and deception designed to avoid responsibility for his actions.” The new complaint also suggests Depp should submit to a mental health evaluation during the proceedings. “Depp’s extravagant spending has often been marked by a lack of impulse control. In retrospect, it appears that Depp may suffer from a compulsive spending disorder, which will be proven in this action through a mental examination of Depp and expert testimony. On information and belief, Depp’s flagrant bragging about his senseless and extreme spending to The Wall Street Journal is further evidence of his psychological issues.” Depp’s lawyers have not yet commented on the new claims.
Is Depp’s Extravagant Spending a Possible Mental Condition or Just Entitlement?
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
Both. More so entitlement but I do feel there are some deep mental insecurities lurking there about ownership and accumulation representing his self-worth.
Six of Cups: Inverted (Upside Down)
This card represents forgiveness of past and sometimes nostalgia. Because it is inverted, I feel the card shows a vindictive side to Depp of unforgiveness of past slights.
Two of Wands: Inverted
This card represents future success on a project. Since the card is inverted, this may show that Depp has realized he has started to decline in his popularity and movie options.
King of Swords:
This card represents dealing with a sometimes cruel and an emotionally unbalanced man through contracts. I believe this card’s energy is Depp’s legal situations of his own making and ill advice from others. He will eventually settle matters.
