The appearance came the same week an interview with Depp was published in the Wall Street Journal, where the actor responded to his former business managers, brothers Robert and Joel Mandel of The Management Company, who declared that he alone was responsible for his $40 million debt.
“Why didn’t they drop me as a client if I was so out of control?” Depp asked. "I’ve worked very, very hard for a lot of years and trusted a lot of people, some who’ve clearly let me down." Depp is seeking "$25 million in damages for alleged fraud and professional negligence" in an ongoing lawsuit alleging the brothers mismanaged his money; Depp's legal team say they have new information coming to light:
New details about the case emerged in court filings Tuesday. Mr. Depp’s lawyers disclosed in heavily redacted filings that they have received what they call “significant new information, including documents and testimony” from a former Management Group employee turned whistleblower. The employee’s testimony concerns the Management Group’s “misconduct in managing Mr. Depp’s affairs,” the filing alleged.
In a countersuit filed in January, the Mandels claimed Depp spends more than $2 million a month to maintain his lifestyle, and many properties, and has "ignored their repeated warnings." They also pointed to one-off expenses, including what they say was a $3 million purchase for "a specially-made cannon" to "shoot the ashes of author Hunter Thompson over Aspen, Colorado." Depp has now clarified that the cannon actually cost $5 million.
Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth feature film in the Pirates franchise will hit screens in May. Depp has taken in nearly $300 million from the franchise prior to this installment.
