A new and enormous report on Johnny Depp’s financial troubles addresses his relationship with Amber Heard, with production sources claiming there were “physical fights” during the filming of the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean movie.
The Hollywood Reporter’s piece outlines Depp’s ongoing legal battle against his former managers over allegedly mismanaged funds, while describing the personal and monetary turmoil which lead up to the proceedings.
In particular, the article hones in on the time Depp spent in Queensland in early 2015 filming Dead Men Tell No Tales.
While producer Jerry Bruckheimer couches the issue by saying “you’ve got to understand the kind of pressure Johnny was under in Australia“ and referencing the chaotic local media, the piece still references the alleged fights, “excessive drinking,” and Depp being egregiously late to the set.
In fact, the report claims that production staff actually had someone watch Depp’s rented accomodation to let the team know when a light turned on, so they could actually get the film, you know, filming. A source claims “Johnny had no idea this was going on.”
That tumultuous lifestyle forms part of his ex-management team’s countersuit against Depp; his ousted team claims that Depp spent $330,000 on a painting for then-wife Heard, and subsequently blew over $40,000 a month on wine following their divorce.
The piece doesn’t exactly put Depp in a great light, referencing his former managers who are trying to prove “Depp is responsible for his own financial waste,” but that drama pales in comparison to the violence allegedly perpetrated against Heard before their split.
Heard filed for a domestic violence restraining order against Depp in 2016, alleging repeated incidents of abuse. The domestic violence case was subsequently dismissed, and the restraining order withdrawn.
