In actuality, it wasn’t that glamorous but everything can relate back to Drag Race if you’re clever enough.
Johnny Depp was told to beat it, creep by yet another law firm in the midst of suing his former business managers for $25 million. Deadline reports that NYC firm Michelman & Robinson, LLP has cut Depp loose. This was the law firm that was supposed to replace the last one. If it makes Johnny feel any better, Michelman & Robinson, LLP hasn’t banged Sean Penn. Yet.
Johnny, who’s also suing ANOTHER former law firm, wants $25 million from The Management Group for “11 complaints ranging from fraud to breach of contract to professional negligence.” This includes TMG purportedly taking out multimillions on Johnny’s behalf and neglecting to tell him about, paying it back with residuals from his movies.
In a statement, Michelman & Robinson, LLP slowly backed away from the bangled spendthrift. It sounds like Depp’s financial life is so convoluted that legal eagles are reviewing it and then just throwing their hands up saying “EFF THIS.”
“Upon having had an opportunity to review this matter in detail, we have determined it is in the best interest of our firm to focus our attention on other matters,” a spokesperson for the Irvine, CA-based firm told Deadline today. “We wish the parties luck in resolving their differences.”
Depp is claiming that his multiple foreclosures and the dust bunnies in his bank account are because of TMG’s lyin’ and cheatin’. TMG counter-sued and are painting Johnny as one of those celebrities who was wiping their buttocks with Ben Franklins. Except the money ran out! What if it’s actually Mordecai’s fault?
“Depp listened to no one, including TMG and his other advisors, and he demanded they fund a lifestyle that was extravagant and extreme,” the established Hollywood biz managers stated in their November 2017 action for judicial foreclosure against the actor for a $5 million loan TMG said they made to him to bail him out a few years back.
It’s hard to muster sympathy for Johnny boy when you read about how he spent $3 million to shoot his friend Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes out of a cannon. That’s ridiculous. Why do people have to be so extra? Just dump them off at the beach like the rest of us do.
