Depp's 'lavish lifestyle' cost €1.8m-a-month
Johnny Depp's former business managers are countersuing the actor, claiming his lavish lifestyle, which cost more than €1.8m-a-month to maintain, caused his financial troubles and that the star ignored repeated warnings.
The countersuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by the Management Group, comes about two weeks after Depp sued the company alleging it grossly mismanaged €23m of his earnings.
It said Depp paid more than €70m to buy and maintain 14 homes, including a French chateau and a chain of islands in the Bahamas.
Depp also spent heavily to buy a 150ft yacht, fly on private jets and cultivate collections of art and Hollywood memorabilia which required 12 storage facilities to maintain , the lawsuit said.
