Despite all of the controversies, Johnny Depp is still one of the best earning and most popular actors in Hollywood. Franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland and Fantastic Beasts, and his long-term relationship with Tim Burton spanning nine films, it should not be a surprise that he amassed an impressive net worth. Depp is also a winemaker and restaurateur, as well as a member of the band called Hollywood Vampires.
What is his net worth?
His current net worth is estimated to be £147.4million, while he earns around £14.7million per film. He has known financial difficulties as well, as he employs a 40-person team and spends almost £22k monthly on wine, £113k on bodyguards and £150k on his private jet travels. He also owns a luxurious yacht.
In early 2017, he went into a lawsuit against his business manager, The Management Group. Supposedly, he is the victim of “gross mismanagement“, and the lawsuit has cost him “tens of millions of dollars”. A representative of TMG Michael Kemp said they did “everything possible to protect Depp from his irresponsible and profligate spending”, as he seems to owe them over £3million. “His tactics and lawsuit will fail, and he will be forced to pay back the loan as promised.”
Split from Amber Rose
Johnny also had to pay his ex-wife Amber Heard £5.6million as a part of their divorce settlement. Amber first accused Johnny of domestic violence and abuse, after which they released a joint statement through E! “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter.”
Children and past relationships
Johnny has two children with Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose and Jack. Lily-Rose a prolific supermodel, and has worked for Chanel, Vogue, Glamour and Elle. She once mentioned how supportive her parents were when she left school at 15: “They both left school when they were 15, so they can’t really say anything. You know what I mean?I’ve never thought of university as my goal. I’ve always just wanted to work and be independent. I didn’t have any incentive to keep doing all that work. I read a lot of books, and I research stuff myself that interests me.” She added: “My parents weren’t very strict. They’ve always trusted me to be independent and make my own decisions. There wasn’t really anything to rebel against.”
Johnny dated several stars. He was married to Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1985, and dated Jennifer Grey, Kate Moss and Winona Ryder. He has a tattoo thatreads: “Winona forever,” which he changed to “Wino forever”. After the most recent domestic abuse allegations, she was one of his exes who claimed he was never abusive in their relationship: “I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. I mean, he was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.”
Other than being an iconic actor and businessman, Johnny Depp also does a lot of charity work, often dressing up as his ultra-popular character Captain Jack Sparrow and visits children in hospital. She once spoke on this practice, saying, “To me they’re giving me the gift… I’ve spent time in Great Ormond Street. I was the parent when my daughter was ill and it was – I’ve known darkness in my life but that was the darkest period ever… I’d always done these visits but after that the visits became more and more important because the kids, bless them, they’re so strong, so courageous but the parents are the ones who are slowly dying and to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to these people means everything in the world to me.”
