Johnny Depp Admits He'll Need To "Work His Ass Off" To Fund Two Million Dollar-A-Month Lifestyle

Details have emerged from his court case against his former managers

Earlier this year, the extent of Johnny Depp's extravagant spending came to light during a trial against his former management company.

It came as a surprise to exactly no one. This is the man, after all, who spent $3 million blasting Hunter S Thompson's ashes out of a cannon.

Depp, 54, is adamant that he's not totally at fault, however. In his current lawsuit, the actor alleges that The Management Group (TMG) has cost him tens of millions of dollars by not making him aware of his financial situation.

They say that they have phone call transcripts that prove he understood that his spending has spiralled out of control, and that he had told TMG co-owner Joel Madel:

"She stated that she had spoken with her brother, and that he stated that he was well aware of his financial situation, and that he understood that he needs to 'work his ass off' to make the money that he needs to support his life."

The bulk of his expenditure was apparently spent on luxury properties, fine wines and private flights. Depp is seeking $25 million (£20 million) from the firm he left in March 2016 after 17 years together, while TMG is asking for $560,000 (£433,000) in damages.
