Johnny Depp’s bitter war with his ex-managers has taken an ugly turn, with the actor’s former managers calling him a “habitual liar.” The actor sued The Management Group in January this year for a whopping $25 million, accusing them of fraud and negligence. The group had then counter-sued Depp as he supposedly spent a lot of money buying mansions, private jets, art, and up to $30,000 a month in wine despite its warnings.
The Lone Rangers actor, speaking to WSJ, questioned why he was retained by his managers despite his “excessive spending.” “I’ve worked very, very hard for a lot of years and trusted a lot of people, some who’ve clearly let me down,” he said.
A spokesperson for The Management Group has now issued a statement calling Depp a “habitual liar who denies responsibility for his own outrageous conduct and coerces others to lie for him.” The statement also said that he has no one but himself to blame for his financial woes.
Depp though, had his retort ready. “It’s my money….If I want to buy 15,000 cotton balls a day, it’s my thing,” he’s quoted as saying.
