Johnny Depp is one of the best actors of this generation. His outstanding acting skills have allowed him to earn a fortune over the years. However, he recently faced an unexpected defamation trial which seemed to have shaken his world a bit.
Johnny Depp without a doubt is one of the most regarded personalities in Hollywood. Although these last few years have been tough for him. He stood against his former wife in a defamation trial. And that subsequently managed to tarnish his aura and popularity. According to several sources, his net worth before stepping into the trial was around $100 million. Although he has been punched in the face with a $40 million debt.
Well these weak links are all due to his financial teams ill-management. They failed to pay property taxes on time. Security staff was given unorthodox loans. Irrelevant and overpaid personnel. All these absurd events led to this imbalance.
To make things more surprising, the firm who did his accounts filed a countersuit. They impute blame to Johnny Depp for carrying out certain unhealthy activities each month. According to them, he was a big spender. A combined total of $650 million was reported by the firm in the last 13 years.
The firm also stated that Johnny’s monthly cash flow stood at a staggering $2 million. Now where did Johnny get so much money from? Well most of it was obviously collected from movies and projects. The main project that got him the most money was Pirates of The Caribbean. According to several sources, The Pirates franchise guaranteed him a total of $300 million until he was sacked by them.
Truth be told, he was also paid $16 million in total by the Fantastic Beasts franchise. While he was sacked by them as well. All due to his defamation case, that brought a lot of controversies.
Now before the defamation case, Johnny used to charge around $20 million per film. Alongside a 20% profit after the film’s been aired.
Now that he fearlessly won the defamation case against Amber Heard, he now sits at a net worth of $150 million. The current net worth is based on an analysis laid down by Celebrities Net Worth.
