"Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp, who earlier this month sued his former managers in a $25 million fraud claim, heard back from them Tuesday via a counterclaim that makes shocking claims about the actor's alleged spending habits. Read on for the six biggest jaw-droppers about Depp's alleged "ultra-extravagant lifestyle."
According to the counterclaim, Depp spent $75 million on residences throughout the world, including "a 45-acre chateau in the South of France, a chain of islands in the Bahamas ... and a fully functioning horse farm in Kentucky."
Depp's former managers also contend that Depp spent more than $18 million to buy and maintain a 150-foot luxury yacht.
The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star is also alleged to have dropped $30,000 a month on wines that he'd have flown in from around the world "for his personal consumption."
Following the 2005 death of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" author Hunter S. Thompson, Depp is alleged to have spent more than $3 million to blast Thompson's ashes from "a specially made cannon" over Aspen, Colorado.
Depp "spent wildly on expensive collectibles," according to the countersuit, including works by Andy Warhol, Gustav Klimt and others, as well as dozens of collectible guitars. The actor's collection of Hollywood memorabilia alone, the countersuit claims, fills "approximately 12 storage facilities and has cost over a million additional dollars to attempt to archive."
But at least Depp's a good pal to have. According to the counterclaim, the actor has spent more than $10 million over the years supporting his "friends, family and certain employees."
